Sometime tours can be disappointing but not this one! Matt is great, doesn't stop talking and all is either funny or informative or both! I would recommend anyone to do the LOWER Loop guided tour and do a self guided tour of the Upper Loop .

This is the way to see Yellowstone if you are not a camper or a hiker. My husband and I took the upper loop tour the first day and the lower loop tour on the second. Matt was our bus driver and he was fabulous. He pointed out all the interesting sites along the way and was an expert on... More

Yellowstone NP is a geographically large park. Taking a tour such as this gives you the luxury of not driving, having a knowledgeable driver/guide and getting a good overview of the park. After being on the tour, you can go back and spend time in places you felt were important. Our guide, Karen J. was friendly, incredibly knowledgeable and patient.... More

Did both North and South loop excursions. Previous reviews suggested North loop was best for wildlife viewing; just the opposite in our mid September visit. Although one reason might be because Yellowstone just has 2-5 inches of snow which made the park absolutely beautiful and wildlife viewing easier to spot. Key to this tour is which guide you get. We... More

Our family of 10, all retired, traveled to West Yellowstone to begin our tour of Yellowstone National Park. We worked extensively with Rachel to set up a tour that would work for our needs. We arrived at the office and found all the arrangements we had made were just perfect! We were given Justin as our guide. I want to... More

We toured Yellowstone with the bus for 2 days in August. I thought it was a great way to see the park. the guides were great and very knowledgable providing insights to nature and geology of Yellowstone. We went on both loops and felt like we saw some hidden treasures that we would have driven by if we were on... More

This is the only way to really see, and learn about the park. We did the upper loop with Jon as our guide, and the lower loop with Karen. Both were great, and very knowledgeable. I can't say enough about Jon.....he made us all feel like friends by the end of the day. Each loop is an all day trip,... More

Our first time in Yellowstone and Matt was our guide. He was so knowledgeable and entertaining. He was great in timing our stops and gave us such great history on our stops. We took the upper tour and got to see Elk, Buffalo and Long Horns. Too bad we didn't get a glimpse of any Bears, but maybe next time.... More

Much better than I anticipated. John, the driver/guide, was very informative. Knew a lot about the history of the park. Booked the North Loop Tour for tomorrow because he was so good.

The sites were amazing and the bus ver comfortable and clean. They even had binoculars on board to use. Only complaint was the guide talked way too much. Provided interesting information but then talked about other things not related to park.

Randy R, Owner at Buffalo Bus Day Tours, responded to this review

Thank you for your review. Our guides do certainly give quite a bit of interpretation while giving their tour. Yellowstone National Park is such an amazing place, with so much diverse history, wildlife, hydro-thermal features, and geology, that trying to sum it up in one 8-hour day is an insurmountable task. Making connections with our guests, having personal conversations, and... More
