I could not recommend this highly enough

We took the Wildlife Watching and Day Hiking combo with Matt. We had an excellent tour and a wonderful day. Matt was an awesome guide who made sure we had the best time possible. He was extremely knowledgeable of the park and wildlife. He tailored a hike to fit just what we wanted. I could not recommended this highly enough.

Can't say enough good thinsgs...

We spent 2 days in Yellowstone National Park with this guide company and I can't say enough good things about how it enhanced our experience of the park. Laura was our guide and if you use Yellowstone Wild, ask for her! Laura's knowledge of the park, the history, wildlife, geologic and everything else was incredible. One of the advantages of YWT is that they have guides out all over the park looking for wildlife and the team radios each other with any sightings. We saw bison, elk, bear, mule dear and stopped at some of the most beautiful places I had ever seen in my life. You are standing there, part of the iconic scene of the mist coming off the river. Pro tip - you will never see all there is to see without a guide. Laura drove all those steep and winding roads like a champ and took us to everything that was on our list to see. We thought this was just going to be a wildlife excursion but we ended up seeing so many dramatic elements of the park that it was mind blowing! Book with Yellowstone Wild Tours and ask for Laura. She has good snacks too!!

Thank you for a WONDERFUL tour experience!!!

Our family booked the Wolf and Bear watching tour with Leysa yesterday. We were a bit nervous when our 17 year old, Kaylie, BROKE HER LEG the day before at the grand prismatic but still pushed through because we wanted to do this so badly! Leysa over delivered and made the tour special for all three of us!!! Kaylie had to stay in the car the entire time and Leysa made the tour so special for her. :-) We saw Grizzly, Black Bear, Grouse haha, wolves, an extremely special experience with wolves, deer, a close encounter with a fox while we were looking at mountain goats. Leysa was on point keeping an eye out for us while we were looking at the goats to make sure the fox didn’t get us. Of course, alllll the bison! She was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and an excellent guide! We would love to go again when we are back. We saved and saved for this vacation and feel this was money well spent as we shopped many tours and selected this one. Thank you for a WONDERFUL and memorable experience. :-)

Aleksa's passion and knowledge were our highlights of this trip

Our first tour was with Aleksa to the canyons and waterfalls. Despite the animal life being quiet in Summer, she managed to find two wolfs, moose, and a grizzly. We had ample time to observe them with her scopes, and she even sent us footage she recorded. She is so knowledgeable not just about the park but shared so much detail about the wildlife and her honest take on how the park is taken care of. Her passion and knowledge were our highlights of this first 7 hour trip - and the hot beverages and lunch were great too.

Laura was incredible!

We had a simply amazing and wonderful day with our guide Laura on our trip to Yellowstone to view nature and wildlife in January. Laura was incredible, with a wonderful, outgoing personality and a deep knowledge of the park, its geology and the wildlife. She continuously amazed us throughout the day with facts and discussions that connected all aspects of what we were seeing. The provisions (coffee, tea, snacks, and lunch) were all top-notch. We saw a multitude of animals including bison, elk, eagles, dippers, pronghorns, (and many others) as well as a lone wolf. The spotting equipment was excellent as well. Cannot recommend this tour highly enough! If you are thinking about booking, you absolutely should!

Winter Wildlife Tour

Absolutely amazing experience. We got a last minute tour with Emil after our other tour got canceled. We saw wolves, moose, bison, elk, fox and many others. We saw a black bear hibernating in her den. Emil is very knowledgeable having studied and worked with wildlife for many years, especially wolves and mountain lions. We learned about wolf packs and their hunting behavior. On one day of the tour we came across a fresh wolf kill. There was an elk carcass with a radio collar attached. Emil retrieved the collar and returned to the research scientists. There were plenty of bathroom, coffee and hot chocolate breaks and breakfast and lunch provided. We would highly recommend this tour for anyone that would like a wildlife tour of Yellowstone Park. Also, we stayed at the Wonderland Lodge and Cafe. The rooms and food were excellent and staff were very helpful and friendly.

The Perfect Yellowstone Experience

A tour with Yellowstone Wild is the perfect way to spend a day in Yellowstone. My wife and I have been on three separate tours with Yellowstone Wild, and each has been more spectacular than the last. The guides are friendly, professional and extremely knowledgeable, and they will greatly enhance your experience in the park by sharing their expertise. These tours can also be tailored to your interests and your desired level of activity, so you can be sure that you will be completely satisfied by your time in the park. I give Yellowstone Wild my highest recommendation and strongly encourage anyone interested in exploring Yellowstone to book a tour with them. You will not be disappointed!
