“Fantastic Trip in Yellowstone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Our group had a fantastic experience with Ezra and Duane as our guides. Not only were they very knowledgeable, but funny and entertaining as well. They brought all of the sight seeing material we needed and were able to put us on several species of animals in the park. Would highly recommend Brush Buck Guide Services.

“Great time! We saw a moose!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

We were really glad to go with Jacqueline on this trip on the Yellowstone lower loop! The driving alone would have killed us! We were glad that she knew exactly where to look for certain animals. We were able to find a moose and get really close. She also was very knowledgeable about all the geothermal formations. I was impressed that she knew so much about everything. It was a great trip. We got to stop when we wanted and hiked around various spots.

“Kelsey was incredible!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014

We did a full day Wildlife Tour of Yellowstone with our guide Kelsey and I will never be sorry that we did! I would highly recommend the wildlife tour as opposed to having a guide take you through the touristy stops in Yellowstone - we did all of them just fine on our own. We were traveling with our two sons (13 and 14) and our 13 year old has autism. Both the boys love animals and nature but our 13 year old is truly fascinated by wildlife and can list off all sorts of facts about everything he sees so this day trip was primarily for him. That said, all four of us had a wonderful time. When we first met Kelsey and she asked what we had seen so far and what we hadn't and we explained that we hadn't seen a Moose yet and so for the first hour or so we were on a moose hunt. It was fun to see some of the back country and walk through wooded areas just to see if a moose that had been sighted in that area might be around. When we did find a moose it was in a location we would have never found on our own...way off the beaten path which just made it more fun. Kelsey had a wonderful way of taking us through the different areas but giving us something special for us to see. Like the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone - which was beautiful on it's own...but she knew where an Osprey was nesting with it's babies which we got to see and take pictures of through her scope. Never once did Kelsey make us feel like she was just reciting off of her check list of things to talk about. Kelsey geared a lot of what she showed us based on what she found we liked. Whether she is just really good at her job or just an incredibly cool person, we felt like we were driving through Yellowstone with a friend, as opposed to a guide. She was the perfect combination of mellow, fun and intelligent. There is no way we would have seen everything we did had we not done this trip with her and she truly made this vacation one that we will always remember. Our oldest son even admitted to us later that night that he had a little crush on her:) If you are even considering taking one of these tours - just do it, it is so worth it. What you learn during the day will help you even when you are on your own. Some of the animals that Kelsey spoke of because they are well known and have names we ended up encountering later during our vacation which made if fun when we were standing with a bunch of people looking at a grizzly named scar! Thank you Brushbuck and Kelsey!

“2 separate tours - both great!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014

We spent 5 days in Jackson Hole Wyoming and our main goal was to see wildlife - and we did. We took our first tour with Brushbuck on Friday, July 4th - the Grand Teton NP Dusk Tour from 5 - 9 pm. Our guides were Trevor and Pat - both excellent and extremely knowledgeable. We saw antelope, bison, porcupines, sage grouse, elk and deer. The scenery was stunning. A great way to spend an evening touring the park. Keep your camera ready! Then, on Sunday, July 6th, we took the Yellowstone Lower Loop Tour - this was a much longer tour but well worth it. Jaclyn was our guide and picked us up at our hotel (Teton Lodge and Spa), right on time. We got off to a great start with wildlife viewing (elk, deer and moose) and enjoyed the scenic drive from Jackson up to the Yellowstone area. Jaclyn was also very knowledgeable and told us all about the geysers at Yellowstone as well as timing our arrival just while Old Faithful was going off. It was a nice, relaxing trip where we didn't have to focus on the traffic, just the sights. We would highly recommend Brushbuck Guide Services.

“Ver Good Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2014

Yellowstone June 2014
The tour guide arrived right on time at our hotel to pick us up. I am impressed with that. The vehicle was was very nice and comfortable. The lunch and snacks were much better than the normal tour lunches. Our tour guide was a civil engineer, therefore, very educated in all aspects of Yellowstone and able to answer all questions with expert knowledge. Although we did not see a bear or moose as we hoped, he did go out of his way to try to find them, even stopping on the way back in an out of the way place. We did see beautiful elk, buffalo, osprey and antelope. They did provide binoculars and the guide would setup special equipment when we say wildlife so that we could view up close. Also, being on a small tour, we did not waste any time trying to see all we could in the one day that we had to spend in Yellowstone. These guides know what time to go where-- we arrived at Old Faithful 10 minutes before it erupted- just enough time to unload and walk over and get a good spot to watch. If we would have tried to do this day without a tour, we would not have seen 1/4 of what we did and also would not have received the information about what we were seeing as we did. The only thing I can say negative is that the tour was a little pricey in my opinion, but I really did not shop around, so all small private tours of Yellowstone may be pricey- I am just comparing it to the other tours we did on our trip (Custer State Park, Glacier National Park & Arches/Canyonlands in Moab).
