We did both the upper loop with Matt and the lower loop with Jon. The guides are very knowledgeable and the buses are comfortable. Would definitely recommend it! It's a long day, so I wouldn't recommend it for really young children, though.More

The yellowstone vacations website now has an error page when I look up their Summer Bus Tours. Does anyone know if they are still operating these? Many thanks.
