Great trip!

We saw lots of Grizzlies, thanks to Adam. Fantastic guide and we learned so much we would not have known otherwise. Amazing experience!
Well worth the cost

Spent a memorable day in the park with Brian. He shared his knowledge and experience and hidden viewing spots to ensure we saw all our bucket list items! We couldn’t recommend them more!

Amazing nature.
, Jun 2022
Brian was an excellent guide. Very personable, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We saw bears, a wolf, lots of bison, a marmot, mountain goat, and beautiful scenery. He explained about the different land areas, and seemed to enjoy the experience right along with us. We wholeheartedly recommend this tour.
Fabulous wildlife tour with Scott
, Oct 2021
We were fortunate to have Scott as a private guide on the wilder tour. He was so incredibly knowledgeable and shared this with us in the nicest way. The amount of wildlife we saw was amazing .We, if we were on our own would not have been patient enough to wait to see a mother bear and her two Cubs come back. But Scott said she will most likely come back into view. Sure enough 10 minutes later we had a great view of the mother and saw the two Cubs climbing a tree. Spectacular. Scott’s story and knowledge of the area from growing up here made this day the highlight of our trip to Yellowstone. Thank you Scott and Tied to Natire. Tricia, Nate and Debbie.

Unbelievable luck and a great guide
, Oct 2021
I brought my family to Yellowstone so they could share in its wonder. This was my 5th trip, but their first. I booked this trip so that they had the best chance of seeing the wildlife in the Fall. Scott was our guide, and he was great! Best eyes in the business - he could spot an ant at a mile! The weather cooperated, and the stars were aligned - we saw a grizzly and mountain goats (at a very far distance). We saw elk, bison, deer, wolves, and (hard to believe) moose! This is very unusual, and not everyone will have this experience, but his experience really helped maximize the odds. Scott was also very thoughtful - I'm developing cataracts, and anything smaller than a mountain is a bit of a blur - knowing that, he fixed his camera to the spotter scope so I could get my best view on the camera screen. I recommend the trip and Scott very highly!

Tied to Nature gave us the best experience when we visited Yellowstone. Our tour guide Adam was awesome! Highly recommend. We saw wildlife we never would have spotted on our own. We saw wolves, a black bear, bald eagle, tons of bison, elk and more.

Best Experience

KC was a wonderful guide that showed us more than we expected. Besides showing us wildlife that Yellowstone has to offer, he was very informative with the history of Yellowstone. Definitely recommend this company.
We had a blast!
, Jun 2021
We had a wonderful time with our very knowledgeable guide. We checked off every animal on our must see list and had just the best time. I have a disability that causes mobility issues and K.C. was great and got us too everything with no obstacles to even worry about. I’m calling them when we come back next year.
Highly recommend this tour.

Our family went on an amazing private day-long tour of Yellowstone with Adam and KC. They picked us up at our cabin in Island Park and drove us all the way to Lamar Valley. Along the way we saw a black bear, elk, bison and red dogs, moose, Pika, marmots, badger, coyote and pups, wolf, and more. Adam knew where to stop and provided detailed information about the park and its animals. This was the highlight of our stay at Yellowstone.
Once in a Lifetime Experience
