The Basics

Most tours of Yellowstone National Park stop by Old Faithful to see one of the geyser’s spectacular eruptions. Day trips to Yellowstone can last up to 13 hours and typically leave from Jackson or Jackson Hole, and visit Old Faithful along with park highlights such as Hayden Valley, Yellowstone Lake, and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone. Small-group tours offer a personalized experience, while self-guided tours are also available if you want to explore the park at your own pace.

Private Yellowstone Old Faithful and Lower Loop Tour
We are a family of 4 (with 2 teenage girls - age 13 & 15). We were looking forward to a tour of the south loop of Yellowstone. John was our tour guide and was fantastic! He was friendly, engaging and knowledgeable. A highlight was seeing a buffalo herd in Hayden and they passed right by us in the car on the road! Great pics/video. John came prepared with binoculars and a scope and he was able to spot a wolf in Hayden as well. We watched as the wolf made his way across Hayden Valley - what a treat! We also got amazing pictures of elk (close up), a swan and bald eagles. We visited the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, Old Faithful Geyser and the historic Old Faithful Inn. We got amazing pictures of The Grand Prismatic Spring. John was great about taking pics of the family and knew all the best spots/angles for the best pics. We had a great time as a family and would highly recommend!

When to Get There

You can visit Old Faithful from May to October, although summer is the most popular time. To beat the crowds, consider visiting in the early morning or in the moments just before dusk. If the eruption schedule aligns with sunrise, be sure to set an alarm so you can watch Old Faithful spout water at dawn.
