We were a part of the wildlife discovery expedition tour this December. This tour fell exceedingly below our expectations and was a major disappointment. They advertise this expedition by boasting that for some it’s ‘the highlight of their trip to Wyoming.’ I would like to meet these people. On the positive side our guide was very intelligent and knowledgeable about... More

I have been going on Expeditions with Teton School of Science for over a decade. Latest, a few days ago, was Sunrise Expedition Christmas Day. Weather made visibility a challenge but that didn't keep Bobby, our guide, from finding great viewing opportunities for everyone. We saw several Bison, large amount of Big Horn Sheep, some Pronghorn, several hundred Elk that... More

We flew from Florida for this trip - this expedition was what we based our vacation upon. It says in fine print that these are specialized vehicles that might break down. Well, they are correct. We got up early, waited for pickup for over an hour, finally got ahold of someone that said they tried to get ahold of us... More

Rebecca, We want to extend our greatest apologies once again for the cancellation of your Yellowstone winter expedition. It was incredibly difficult to be forced to cancel your trip, and your feedback is very important to us, and very appreciated. Winter in Yellowstone National Park is not only harsh, but incredibly isolated and unpredictable. Unfortunately, this can lead to difficult... More

Mesmerizing mountains, numinous nature and abundant animal life characterize these tours associated with the Teton Science School. Don't miss the opportunity to investigate the Tetons and their dedicated National Park under the guidance of a naturalist whose affinity for animals and appreciation for the glories of the natural world is profound. Sarah E. was my guide for two days of... More

Kevin was an excellent tour guide for the day! The Wildlife and Waterfalls expedition was the highlight of our trip to WY. He was very attentive to both us and our surroundings. He stopped anytime we wanted - breaks, bathroom, animals, scenery, etc. He incorporated the teen family member in our group. I would highly recommend both TSS and Kevin!

Our entire family had a wonderful time. Our guide, Alice, was knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. She was a also a wonderful spotter. I do not know how she spotted the mountain goats, when I could only see them with the scope. Going with a knowledgeable guide made Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons much more enjoyable. We were able to see... More

I have to admit, our tour did not start off on a good foot -- some snafu with the scheduling. But, TSS rallied and made good. Our tour ended up being AWESOME!!!

Led by biologist Sarah Ernst, we witnessed Yellowstone's and Grand Teton's American iconic megafauna up close and from afar through spotter scopes that other travelers would never have known were there. Sarah knitted together the geological and cultural history of the region for us as we passed through to give us a depth of experience we couldn't have imagined. We... More
