My husband & I took the three day "Top of the World Tour" in June 2014. I hadn't been out to Yellowstone since I was a child and my husband had never been. We wanted to do it right and not just drive around aimlessly like everyone else does. This tour was perfect for us. The tour was all inclusive, so we didn't have to worry about where to stay or eat. The guide drivers are in constant contact with each other, so your animal viewing is much greater as they share sighting information as well as knowing where the animals normally hang out. Not only that, but it was so nice to have someone driving us along instead of sharing the driving between ourselves. You know we would have missed half of what was out there because we would have had to focus on the road. Our guide, Josh, was a very safe driver, polite and full of useful information while we were out on our tour. I never thought we would see all that we did. In addition to the beautiful scenery, we saw moose, bison (everywhere!), elk, coyotes, black bears, grizzly bears, bald eagles and many more! I think the three day tour was enough for us. We had a day before and a day after to ourselves. We covered almost 1,000 miles in three days. Any longer would have started to wear on us. If you asked me if there was anything that was not positive, my only critique would be the Suburban that we drove around in. There was another couple with us (we did not book a private tour), so we were in the back seat of the Suburban two out of the three days. My husband is 6'4" and was quite cramped in the back seat. They did offer the front seat to one of us so we could stretch out, but we declined as we wanted to share the experiences together. Not sure how that could be remedied. In any event, they were wonderful and we would do it again...and probably will!!
