“Thank you so much for everything you put into this tour for us. We had such a great time, learned so much, and experienced such beauty and grandeur. You successfully imparted information but beyond that, your love and respect for the ecosystem. My throat closes and my eyes water when I think of the wolf family we saw this morning. Thank you for all of it!” 
Pam and Rick

"Thank you for showing us the dangerous beauty of Yellowstone. We sure enjoyed it. The trip was awesome. I learned a lot. I won’t forget."

Paul, age 9

"You have taught us a lot about nature and quite frankly have caused me to re-evaluate what’s important to me. Words cannot express what you have given our family in these few days."

Maria S.

“You truly brought Yellowstone to life. Before our arrival, it was just a green colored corner in Wyoming. Thanks to you, we now understand that it is truly a ‘living organism’ and due all associated respect. Thank you!!!!"
