The Basics

The vision of snow-capped Teton peaks reflecting off the waters of Jackson Lake ranks among this national park’s most stunning sights. Other than the lodges, the majority of facilities are at Colter Bay, where there’s a marina, visitor center, campground, and store.

Most guided tours of Grand Teton from Jackson Hole, Cody, or West Yellowstone include a stop at the lake, along with other popular park attractions such as Jenny Lake, the Snake River, Chapel of the Transfiguration, and the Maud Noble Cabin.

Good tour; very informative and the guide Clara was great.
We really enjoyed the tour and our guide Clara was excellent - really related to our adolescent grandchildren. Prior to the actual tour, however, the experience was difficult. We needed to change our credit card for the charge and make the dinner order but the company's voicemail was full; the message said to text him. We did that on several occasions but he never got back to us. Then there was a mix-up in the pickup location; however, Clara was very helpful and patient with it.

Grand Teton National Park - Sunset Guided Tour from Jackson Hole
Our guide, Clara, was very personable,fun & energetic. She took us to all the great spots to view in a totally different perspective than daytime. We were fortunate to see a bear & a fox. I liked the quietness of the park this time of day.

It was quite the experience to have a herd of bison cross in front of us (twice!). Our guide James was very knowledgeable about the area and provided interesting insights about the terrain and wildlife.

Grand Teton National Park Tour from Jackson Hole
We enjoyed the views of the Grand Tetons. Our tour guide, Mike took us the road to the Mormon Row, Signal Mountain, Jenny Lake and Jackson Lake. We really enjoyed seeing the wildlife, bison, pronghorn along the Scharkabar (sp) road. He was very informative and personable guide. We were able to look through the scope that he had along to see some of the animals and landscape up close. He was patient as my sister and I couldn't walk too far without taking a break. It was a very enjoyable day.

Grand Teton National Park - Full-Day Guided Tour from Jackson Hole
We are a family of 4 (with 2 teenage girls, age 13 and 15). We were hoping to see some wildlife and hear some history of the Grand Tetons. Shane was our guide and he was fantastic! He was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He picked us up right on time (6:30am...you need to start early if you want to see wildlife). We got to see several MOOSE right away! Highlight! Shane had a high powered camera, several pair of binoculars and a scope. Along the way, we saw elk, bison, pronghorns, and a few other small animals/birds. We rode the ferry across beautiful Jenny Lake and did the small hike, we went to Signal Mountain and saw spectacular views, we took pics at Mormon Row, visited Shane's House and took great pics, went to Jackson Lodge (great lobby views of Tetons). We looked for bear (Shane knew all the hot spots) but did not see any. Overall it was a great tour and we all (even my teenage girls) enjoyed our day and got some pretty amazing pictures!

We enjoyed Ben’s knowledge and humor taking us through all the hidden gems of the Grand Tetons. From 39 to 75 years old this trip exceeded our expectations. We 100% would use this company again (with hopes that Ben would be available to guide us).
