Departure Time

7:00 AM
Day 1: Jackson or Teton Village – Grand Teton – Yellowstone (L)

Begin in Jackson or Teton Village for a drive that takes you through Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park. Along the way, use provided binoculars to scan the horizon for coyotes and elk, or the sky for soaring bald eagles. Don't get too focused on what's in the distance, though. There's always a chance you'll spot moose or grizzlies right on the side of the road.

In Yellowstone National Park, experience sights like the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, and the Upper Falls and Lower Falls. After a provided picnic lunch, drive through Lamar Valley for a chance to see large herds of bison. Dinner is at your own expense just over the border in Montana, where you’ll stay overnight to rest up for a second day of adventure.

Overnight: Hotel in West Yellowstone or Cooke City, Montana

Day 2: Yellowstone – Jackson or Teton Village

The next day, get an early start in search of wolves. They are most active in the morning — which is also a time when grizzly bears are up and on the move. Afterward, it's your turn to get moving on easy, short hikes past Yellowstone’s geothermal features. Top off the experience with a stop Old Faithful geyser to see a splashy show.

Important: Lodging within Yellowstone National Park cannot be guaranteed for any bookings made within 30 days of travel. If none are available, accommodations will be reserved at a hotel outside the park.

    No Other Way to see Yellowstone - be sure to ask for Gannon!
    Juanita_W
    , Oct 2021
    I cannot say enough good about this tour! We went mid-September, 2021. Brushbuck Guide Services was amazing. They were in contact 2 days before, the day before, and the morning of the tour, so we were never in doubt of being picked up. They picked us up from the lobby of our hotel. Gannon, our guide, with the help of his brother, David, also a guide on another Brushbuck tour, made sure we saw every animal imaginable: elk, moose, a mama bear with her baby, a black bear, fox, wolf, bison, eagles, mule deer, pronghorn, mountain goats. Then to be at Old Faithful in time to see it erupt, mud pots (didn't even know they existed), and so many other beautiful places. It even snowed our 2nd day - so beautiful - not sure Gannon can arrange that on every tour, but he would certainly try - chuckle. A maximum of 10 are allowed on this tour, and our tour had 8; therefore, Gannon went above and beyond to make sure we saw all we could see. He would not stop until we saw all animals and visited all amazing sights there were to see. I cannot remember a single question he was not able to answer - he was full of so much interesting and informative information. He even air-dropped pictures he was able to get through his scope that we couldn't get. Being a small group, we all got to know each other, and we made new friends we will remember forever. One of my favorite tours of all time!

    We spent 2 days with fabulous Gannon as our guide. His enthusiasm was contagious and his passion for his work made it such an incredible experience. His patience and knowledge (and a little bit of luck) allowed us to see mule deer, white tails, river otters, pronghorn antelope, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, moose, osprey, falcons, eagles, bear (a mama and 4 cubs!), bison (so many up close and personal!) BUT the rarest and highlight was Gannon spotting a running bull bison that was being chased by 3 wolves! After watching the circle of life proceeding, we had to leave due to darkness but picked up again The next morning where we witnessed 13 wolves celebrate their victory - complete with howling in the hills. It was both sorrowful and mesmerizing and I’m sure rare and unique. Again, without Gannons eagle eye and persistence we never could have experienced this. This is all in addition to the geothermal uniqueness of Yellowstone, the beauty of Grand Tetons and the genuine once-mining town of Cooke City overnight. Totally exceeded my expectations - I’m not a hiker biker - just a normal person who appreciates nature. Completely and totally recommend this excursion if you want to really see this part of our country.

    Hi John! What an amazing review! Here in the office, we received a call from the Cooke City hotel manager who was concerned that your group had not arrived yet and it was starting to get dark. I had no doubts that you were in good hands with Gannon and was elated for you all when I spoke with him and heard the incredible event you were able to witness! Something like that is definitely worth getting to the hotel a little later.

    The entire two day tour was excellent! The sightseeing van was very comfortable and only held 9 people so we got to know everyone. We stopped a bunch of times to see wildlife. Kenny our guide was the best. He was really knowledgeable about everything! He taught us so much. He made the trip so exciting. I would highly recommend this trip, tour company and guide!

    This tour was amazing. Our tour guide Hailie, a former librarian made this trip an engaging energizing event. There was nothing worth seeing in Yellowstone we did not see: animals, geysers, mountains [Tetons]. The tour company Brushback ranks supreme! This is the Yellowstone tour to take. Do it!!

    Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks are a must see in USA if you like beautiful scenery, seeing wild animals and seeing geysers, hot springs and mud pots. Our tour guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the area and made for good company on the tour. We saw lots of bison, a few bears, and other animals. The mountains are majestic and the bison fascinating. We saw them at one point just casually walking along the road holding up all the traffic but it was a good way to see them up close. It is such a large area that I would recommend at doing a tour that is at least 2 days or more as there is such a lot to see. The tour company were a pleasure to deal with.

    It was one of the most memorable holidays for my son and I, great fellow passengers not to mention our Guide/Driver Mike, who was well informed, courteous and very likeable. We saw lots of wild life and the scenery was spectacular. I would recommend this trip to any wild life and scenery lovers without a doubt

    This two day trip was one of the greatest experiences I have ever had! I had been to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks many times in the past, but this trip was like seeing them for the first time. Our guide, Evan, was awesome he was very personable, thoughtful, and professional. Furthermore, his knowledge of the parks and points of interest was amazing, and he must have bionic vision because he was able to spot wildlife that was nearly impossible to see, initially. In all my trips to Yellowstone and the Tetons, I have never seen as much wildlife as I saw on this trip. Seeing the Lamar Valley was a life changing experience, and we were privileged to see interactions between grizzlies and wolves that humans rarely see. I more than highly recommend this trip and Evan as your guide.
