I had a wonderful time with Kyle, my guide, for the day long wildlife tour in the Tetons. He was a wealth of information and had a special gift for spotting wildlife. His enthusiasm for wildlife was contagious! The van was very comfortable and snacks and drinks were provided throughout the day. Our wonderful lunch at Dornan’s was also included. I would HIGHLY recommend!read less

We had such a great time. Of course it’s hard to go wrong with the beauty of Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks, but Kelsey helped make the trip better than we imagined. First of all, Kelsey was fun to be around. She didn’t mind our lame dad jokes and constant ribbing between the seven guys we had. She laughed and participated which was more fun for all of us. Second, Kelsey really knows her stuff. She has a degree in biology and boy did it show. She was so knowledgeable about every animal we asked about. She knew about their breeding habits, their genealogy, and more. It was quite intriguing listening to her descriptions of what we were seeing. Third, she went out of the way to make the trip memorable. She simply would not quit on making sure we saw the wildlife we wanted to see. On the second full day tour, she told us she’d stayed up late reading up on many topics she thought we might ask about. It was really cool to hear that she took the time to prepare like that for our tour. We saw just about everything we’d hoped to see and more. Moose, bison, otters, bald eagle, elk, pronghorn, the list goes on and on. It is such a magical place and we enjoyed it far more because of the professionalism and dedication of Kelsey and BrushBuck Tours. Well done and I highly recommend you use them on your next adventure.read less

She is a super star. Her passion and love of nature and wildlife made our trip truly special. We learned so much about the animals we saw and this tour exceeded our expectations. She started by asking what each of us wanted to see and then took us on a magical journey. If you have kids, she was awesome with the family on our trip and made sure she kept the kids engaged and safe. This was truly a spectacular tour that I will take every time in the area because it will always be ever changing. I will recommend this to everyone I know as a top pick when coming to the Tetons.read less

We have been to several national parks but my 17 year old has declared this "the best national park experience" we've ever had. The rest of us agree! We did the 8 hour wildlife tour of the Grand Tetons. We were scheduled for a tour of Yellowstone but when that got shut down due to the awful floods, Ren and the staff at BrushBuck worked with us to change to a Tetons tour and we are not at all sad about how that ended up. Our guide, Cooper, was fantastic. He was knowledgeable, chatty and was able to find animals that I'm sure we wouldn't have seen on a different tour. Including 3 bear cubs! I would absolutely and without hesitation recommend this tour to anyone.read less
