Quick review to note that this day expedition is well worth the cost and then some. Our guide, Dawson, had deep, extensive knowledge on just about every topic we brought up and a terrific, easy-going personality to boot. Just the kind of guy you want to have around while exploring...so much fun we often forgot he was our 'guide' rather than just our super knowledgeable and capable pal leading us through the beautiful scenery.

Thank you for your comments. Dawson is a great naturalist, personality and pal.

The personality and demeanor of our staff is a key component to being successful. Wildlife Expedition Biologist staff are hired for a combination of their expert naturalist skills as well as overall personality and appearance. We believe in professionalism. Wildlife Expeditions Biologists will present themselves as professionals, we wear uniforms that clearly identify who we are. Your guide will not arrive wearing dirty jeans and flip-flops. That just isn't Wildlife Expeditions. Thanks for taking the time to review our program. - Jared B.

Kimber was our guide. She was excellent . We saw moose , elk , bear , bison , bald eagle and pronghorn . Having a guide meant we went down routes we would have otherwise avoided being unconfident off the beaten track. Lunch included in our tour.

Kimber is an excellent guide. We are glad that Kimber was able to share areas and habitats of Grand Teton National Park that you wouldn't have found on your own. It is important to know that all of the areas that we visit are open to the public. But as a local operation our insights allow us to know what species can be targeted in certain areas during the various seasons. This is essential to being successful. Thank you for allowing us the opportunity and privilege to share our knowledge with you. - Jared B.

Sean was our guide and he had the eyes of an eagle to spot moose in the willows. Loved the fact that scope and binoculars were provided so that we didn't have to bring our own. He was a knowledgeable biologist, too. I took a point off because it took three times with the booking office to get my reservation correct. Make sure the pickup is at the correct hotel when you get your confirmation. I would book with TSS again, though!

Thank you for your wonderful praise of Sean and his eagle eyes. We are proud of Sean and the programs he leads.

We apologize for assuming that you were staying at the Snow King Resort instead of Snow King Motel. We appreciate you contacting our office after receiving our confirmation email. This allowed us to correct the mistake. Once the correction was made in our reservation system you were good to go. We believe it is worth mentioning that we were on-time for our pick-up and this simple clerical error had no bearing on the program. Snow King Resort has 100+ rooms and Snow King Motel has just a handful. Over the years we have only picked up a handful of guests at the Snow King Motel. However, each and every customer deserves our full attention. We are glad that the confirmation email worked, it allowed us to confirm our reservation was incorrect and thus corrected in a timely fashion. Thank you for the feedback. - Jared B.

Our family traveled to the Tetons again this year and were so fortunate to spend two days with our guide, Kevin from Teton Science School's Wildlife Expeditions. Our daughter, age 10 sums it up as, " It was like attending science/ wildlife camp for 2 days and you had the teacher all to yourself!" Through our experience with TSS we have developed a stronger love of the nature and the wildlife that surrounds us. Kevin's knowledge and his natural way of explaining what we saw
made everything bigger, brighter and more fascinating. We became so engrossed throughout our
day we almost forgot to eat the delicious muffins and lunch provided for us!

Bigger, brighter and more engaged than your run of the mill guides. Kevin Taylor is one of the greatest naturalists around. Kevin not only shares his intimate knowledge of the natural world, he lives it and helps other appreciate it. We thank you for trusting us for a third visit and can't wait to see you next year. Being that you are a regional neighbor maybe you could visit us during the winter months and journey into Yellowstone aboard our snowcoaches. Thank you for your kind praise and trust. - Jared B.
