Starting our very own "Bear Jam!" My husband and I traveled to Jackson, WY for the first time the end of May, 2022. What an experience! Our children booked us a sunset tour with dinner with Great Western Expeditions. Larry (who was awesome!) picked us up at the hotel and carried us through several off roads that my husband and I had not traveled. We actually saw a mama grizzly with two cubs but our favorite part was starting our very own "bear jam" with a beautiful grizzly at Moose Junction! We ended the tour eating at a local restaurant instead of a sunset dinner because it was so cold and our picnic area was covered in snow! Thank you, Larry and Great Western Expeditions, for a great experience!

A beautiful, customized sunset wildlife tour with the amazing Tetons as center stage. Larry was a FANTASRIC guide! He picked us up at our hotel and catered the tour to help us see some of our requests but also helped us to see some of the most beautiful views! We had an incredible dinner at a picnic bench at sunset, overlooking the Tetons. And to wrap up our tour, Larry quickly spotted a grizzly bear and we were able to get some amazing shots (along with Elk and moose). I highly recommend a tour with Mountain Resort!

Amazing Day full of fun and snow This tour was great! We got a last minute booking and our tour guide Laurie was very knowledgeable and she was able to answer all of our questions (and with a 6&7 year old there were a lot of those)! I highly recommend the morning tour as we saw a lot of wildlife out and about. This was a “winter tour” but (spring for us) — the kids LOVED the tour. We drove in a private van — where it was just us — it made the experience so much better — we went into the Grand Teton Nat’l Park and saw several moose (up close) - Big Horned Sheep - Elk - gorgeous Swans — The wildlife is seen from a distance for obvious reasons — the safety of the animals Is very important. Laurie brought binoculars for all of us. Snacks were provided (which for little kids is important) — we went to the Elk Refuse and did the wagon/sleigh ride - Laurie provided us with 5 blankets which came in handy as it began to snow pretty hard when we were out on the refuge — we then went and had Bubba’s BBQ (Fantastic BTW). We ended with lots of smiles & full bellies. Thank you again to Laurie and GWE for an amazing day!!!

Amazing Experience This was an amazing experience! My family really loved riding the sleigh and the laid back travel around Jackson looking for animals! Animals are obviously unpredictable, but Laurie was determined to find us some moose! We finally found some off a little ways, but it was all so awesome! Laurie was incredibly thoughtful and enjoyable to ride around with! We look forward to returning!

First time to Yellowstone Trip was exceptional. Great Western folks know what they are doing. They listened well in designing our trip to see what were our interests, and they made nice adds to make sure we got the full flavor of the entire park. They made our 5 day/4night adventure fun and easy. Laurie was tops.

Wonderful Yellowstone Experience Our group off four people spent 5 wonderful days and nights in the Tetons and Yellowstone Parks with Laurie and cannot say enough good about our experience. She is an expert guide with a great personality who went the extra mile to see that we experienced as much as possible on our trip. She listened to what we wanted to see and adapted our tour to meet our needs. 5 stars all the way!

Tour of Grand Tetons and Yellowstone Our group of four just completed a five day, four night tour of Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons with Laurie. She was incredible, spending extra hours making sure we saw everything in Yellowstone that would amaze us. From pulling up and parking the van quickly so we could get a close up of a bear or bison, fixing an incredible dinner in a picnic area, explaining the eco-system of Yellowstone, and having everything we needed in the van from snacks to binoculars! This is the best way to see Yellowstone up close and not have to drive yourself! I still cannot believe she had us visit the Steamboat geyser that went off while we were there! She says it was a surprise to her but I am still wondering!
