What to do and see in Wyoming, United States: The Best Sightseeing Tours

August 23, 2021 Tynisha Seiler

Wyoming boasts a positively selfish hoard of natural outdoor beauty! From the soaring peaks of the Grand Tetons to Jackson Hole valley and Yellowstone National Park, the mountain landscape and natural wonders of Wyoming are breathtaking. All-season outdoor activities prove a natural draw for families, couples and group getaways. Sports lovers golf through spring and summer at attractive rates or tackle river and lake fishing, hunting and hiking. Families take to Alpine skiing and snowmobiling in Jackson Hole, Snow King, Grand Targhee and Pine Creek. Every visitor is awed by the deep canyons and steaming geysers of The Yellowstone National Park. Each magnificent sight rivals the next. The Grand Tetons rise over a mile above Jackson Hole valley, where a ride on the Aerial Tram from Teton Village offers unforgettable views. Across the entire state, wildlife stakes its rightful claim, from bison and bighorn sheep herds to black bear and mountain elk. For a step back in frontier history, take the family to Go Native America to experience Native American culture, history and arts of the Plains Tribes. Enjoy tours with indigenous guides, horseback riding and roping lessons. With every experience, your family will gain a sense of the pioneer spirit that pushed America westward.

We were offered a "pet friendly tour"...this allowed my wife and I to take our Belgian Malinois with us. The tour guide Kim was amazing!!! She was a dog lover and took care of us and dog. Her knowledge of the park was solid. The tour itself was worth the price. We never would have been able to see all the sites on our own.

If you only have one day to visit Yellowstone, this 1-day, 200+ mile private tour of Yellowstone’s Lower Loop is the tour to take. After departing Jackson we’ll drive north through Grand Teton National Park while transiting to Yellowstone, making several stops along the way to take photos, admire wildlife, and take advantage of the Flagg Ranch restrooms. Using bathrooms with running water is simply how we roll. We’ll then enter Yellowstone through the South Entrance just a little before 9 AM. From there, we’ll continue driving north to West Thumb Geyser Basin then to the famous Lake Yellowstone Hotel for short coffee break. From the Hotel, we’ll continue traveling north to admire the Mud Volcano, Hayden Valley, and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, before taking a lunch break at Canyon Village. Continuing west from Canyon, we’ll explore Fountain Paint Pots, and Grand Prismatic Hot Spring. We’ll cap the day with a visit to the Old Faithful Inn and see Old Faithful gush in all her glory.

Inclusions: Breakfast burrito (meat or veggie), croissant, or muffin., Your choice of salad or a sandwhich made your way., Use of binoculars, Bottled water, Cloth face masks, hand sanitizer, and sunscreen

Discovery Channel experience with Obsidian Cliff Tours and Stacy Nolan! October 7th Husband and I did a one-day private tour of Yellowstone. Stacy contacted me a few weeks prior to tour to understand our goals for the day - wild life spotting, hiking, main tourist attractions, photography, etc. We wanted to see wildlife and fit in some of the tourist areas if time allowed. Stacy picked us up at our hotel in West Yellowstone (they can pick up from most areas near the Park) at 7:30 with awesome breakfast sandwiches and juice to eat on our drive out to Lamar Valley (I think it was about 1.5 hours). I’m not a breakfast sandwich person but these were really good, on fluffy English muffins. We also ate lunch in the van to save time. Several things that stand out about Obsidian Cliff Tours and Stacy: Covid awareness - van was clean and Stacy wore mask in the van (not the case with other tours we took). Additionally, Stacy reminded us to not touch railings and put masks on when we were in the midst of other tourists. Fortunately this didn’t occur often as Stacy took a route that was opposite to that followed by most park visitors, Stacy has a radio to listen to park rangers dealing with animals on the road and wandering near tourists. He also speaks to his guides and other guide companies to learn where recent wildlife have been hanging out. As well, he knows animals’ favorite hangouts from his many years of experience. As a result, we saw a lot of wildlife, including bison, elk, wolves, pronghorns and coyotes. The only animal we missed were bears. We were actually in a bison stampede! Stacy definitely fulfilled our request to see wildlife! I greatly appreciated Stacy stopping at the best bathrooms in the park (large, clean, regularly maintained, with running water)! I felt very safe with Stacy’s driving and safety precautions when we were in the woods. Stacy regularly took photos and videos of the highlights of the day and forwarded them to us. Great photos for our album. He even shared photos of bears that he had seen a few days earlier. Omg, so much knowledge about the animals, the geology, ecological efforts and the Park’s history. For example, we learned why many dead trees are white at the bottom of the trunk (the Bobby socks effect), why large bison herds are comprised of mostly females, how views on wildfires are changing, and so much more. I highly recommend you take the tour to find out the answers these questions and many more. Stacy is a great story teller about events that have taken place in the park and on his past tours. He kept us wanting more. The tour lasted nearly 12 hours and I realized the following day, when I looked at the map, that we had covered the entire Park, including the major tourist sites with the exception of Ol’ Faithful and the Prismatic spring. I specifically asked Stacy to skip these since we could easily view those on our own. We covered more ground than we ever would have on our own!

We were absolutely thrilled with Tied To Nature and Adam Brubaker's tour. He is so knowledgeable and connected to what is going on at Yellowstone. When you take his tour, he is in contact with which animals are where, when the next time Old Faithful is going to go off, so we saw everything with hardly any down time. His enthusiasm and love for nature is palpable. We saw hundreds of bison, elk, the Great Gray Owl, and Bears! We got fantastic photos because he allowed us to put our cell phones onto his telescope. He explained so much about this majestic and magical park. We recommend this tour company highly! And do your tour at the beginning of your trip so that you get the most out of your whole trip. We were lucky we got in because of someone else canceling. We went during Covid-19 and felt very safe on a private tour with just our group.

We paid $700 for an all day tour of Yellowstone - expect a lot. We got a brand new guide (nice young man) just learning the ropes - could not answer many of our questions. He had memorized his presentation - had to ask other guides for information. There was no provision for lunch (usually included in an all day tour at this price point). The snacks were cheap bags of doritos & potato chips - as a diabetic I could not have any of them. No fruit and only water to drink Stay away from Globe Trekkers tours.

This tour was the highlight of our trip. Not only did we see numerous wildlife but we saw parts of the area that we simply would not have seen without an expert guide. Scott was extremely knowledgeable and made the whole trip very special and a memory we will always remember. We will definitely be planning another tour when we return!
