Owner description: Join us during summer months for a guided tour of Grand Teton or Yellowstone National Park. Grand Teton National Park is home to many spectacular wild animals including bison, moose, bears, bald eagles, and more, not to mention amazing landscapes. Yellowstone is an area of unrivaled geothermal wonders and fantastic scenery. We also offer hiking as part of our Yellowstone trips. Fly-fishing on the Snake or riding ATVs in the National Forest are other excellent options. During winter, choose a guided snowmobile tour into the fabulous Teton back country or Yellowstone National Park. Our tours offer the opportunity to enjoy wildlife and scenery or powder and off trail riding. If snow machines are not for you, we also offer snowcoach tours into Yellowstone National Park.

James was our guide and was an excellent mix of fun and knowledge. He made the trip! The facilities were clean and warm :-), and the gear and sleds were also very clean and well maintained. We were able to order our own lunch and they took care of the rest - food, water, etc. we made enough stops at great sights to get a lot of good photos, but not so many stops that it was tedious. Perfect mix of fun and safety. Highly recommend this operator and our guide!!

Excellent tour with Scenic Safaris on Wednesday March 13, 2014. James R. was an outstanding guide. He provided his knowledge of the areas we passed heading to our start point as well as information during our stops in the Park. I recommend James as a guide. We saw lots of Buffalo, one in particular came very close to us at Old Faithful. Outstanding trip and a great group that kept a good pace which meant longer and more scenic stops.

Scenic Safaris provided an amazing experience for our family of five. We were picked up right at our door at 6 AM, breakfast, lunch provided, and all gear. Chris, our guide, was very knowledgeable about the park sites, history, and very experienced at wildlife locations. We saw bison, elk, moose and toured all the geysers. The park is so empty during the winter, that the scenery along the road trails were unspoiled by traffic jams and crowds. I would highly recommend this trip as a "must do" for anyone coming to Jackson, WY.

We had booked a trip to Yellowstone but mother nature had other plans for us. Our guide, James, picked us up promptly at 6am and we proceed to pick up a few more guests at other hotels. We then went to the office to fill out paperwork and have some breakfast. Everything is provided for you. Snowmobile suit, helmet, boots and gloves if needed. Do dress warmly underneath. I don't recommend jeans if you are taking a snowmobile trip. You fill out an order form for what kind of sandwich you would like for lunch. We were off to Yellowstone with 6 in our group. Unfortunately, due to the snow, the park rangers shut down the road to get to Yellowstone. We waited to see if the road would open but the snow didn't let up. Disappointment set in as there is no other way to get to Yellowstone. Luckily for us, we were offered to go to Gros Ventre instead. No geysers but we would still get to try snowmobiling. Back to the office to get the snowmobiles and we were on our way. What a day!!!!!! We saw elk, moose, coyote and a bald eagle. We had all conditions, sunny to almost whiteouts. James was an awesome guide as one party in the group had some difficulties staying upright on the snowmobile but James got them dug out every time. I think they may have had trouble as the driver was a newbie with a passenger on the back. I had never snowmobiled before but had no issues.You can ride solo or with a passenger. James explained everything before we set out on our adventure. We had lunch in a rustic cabin with hot beverages and our yummy sandwiches. There were some tougher sections of trail but James rode the snowmobile for those who were timid to try the more difficult sections. At the end, we got to bomb around on the lake with the snow mobiles. James was very safety conscious and very knowledgeable about the local wildlife and countryside. I now know why so many people love to snowmobile!!! Thanks James!!!! It was a great experience.

This company was recommended by the concierge at The Wort Hotel, and she was so right. Despite never having been on a snowmobile before, my wife and I had a great day with our experienced (19 years) guide, Chris. The snow machines were in superb condition---they replace them every year--and the snowsuit, boots and gloves were toasty warm. The helmets were top-notch. While we started out with limited visibility in the snow, the sky cleared while we were having lunch and the views of the Teton Mountains on the way back were breathtaking.
