We were very pleased with the tour. Kevin, the tour guide, was very knowledgeable and made the tour very enjoyable. The other two guides were also very good. We saw a lot of elk and they told us about other wildlife in the park.

Jo Wurst is the "best" guide a tour guest will ever have. She is passionate about what she does, and excited about the park, the wildlife and the environment too. Unfortunately I learned so much that I can't remember it all. However, I do remember...More
