Yellowstone & Grand Teton: Walking America’s First National Park Reviews

5 out of 5 stars

Best trip ever

We always stayed away from guided tours but this trip was far and away the best experience we’ve had in all the years that we have been traveling. Each day was better than the one before it. Every thing was well planned and the guides were outstanding. They provided expert descriptions of the area and provided many surprises along the trails. We look forward to many more VBT trips.

Yellowstone & Grand Tetons Walking America

This was a terrific trip. I had never been to the Grand Tetons or Yellowstone and was amazed at the diverse geography. We saw geysers, hot springs, mountains, meadows, thermal “moonscapes” lily ponds and the beach from moderately challenging hiking trails. Our guides were knowledgeable and fun; they went out of their way to accommodate us. The fellow travelers were enthusiastic about the trip and interesting folks to be with.

walking in nature that is hard to describe

Great package, easy to moderate hiking, great guides, vistas that can’t be described and an itinerary that is well thought out.

Great parks.

The visual site were enhanced by the knowledge of the guides. Their historical perspective and knowledge of the geographic features connected us to the parks.

An Awesome experience

I “signed on” with my wife to celebrate her upcoming 75th birthday at the end of June. We were in no way disappointed and everything (except the weather that week) far exceeded our expectations. And even the weather in no way took away from our enjoyment.

Wonderful Way to see Yellowstone!

Our guides were very knowledgeable about both national parks. They included many interesting experiences we never would have had on our own and were flexible to the needs of the group.

Beautiful Scenery, Very Easy Walking, Disappointin

The Tetons and Yellowstone are beautiful. The trip is a walking trip, so if you are looking for a trip with lots of exercise this is not it. The guides were helpful, but not the most organized VBT guides I have encountered. Added to this a lot of unavoidable van time, few optional activities and spartan National Park accommodations, this is not one of VBT’s better trips.

Response from: Customer Service

Thank you for your review. We are disappointed to hear that the accommodations and walks did not meet your expectations. We are working with our hotels and reviewing the itinerary to improve the experience for our guests in the future.

Expanded my estimation of Yellowstone 150%.

The Teton hike was OK, but tough for the first real day out. Yellowstone was fantastic and Joyce was the perfect, enthusiastic, knowledgeable, caring guide. Steve was OK, but a bit too “cute.”

Before last month, I hadn’t visited Jackson Hole for almost 30 years. When I first flew in over the mountains of Yellowstone I thought, “I wish I could share this with someone I love.” And I finally did. Jackson Hole and Yellowstone are among the most breathtaking places I have ever experienced. Our guides, Joyce and Steve, really knew their location, and if we stumped them with questions, they found the answers and got back to us. What a wonderful trip!

Grand Teton-Yellowstone hiking tour Sep 2017

The tour was wonderful. The group joined together quickly, new friends, laughing,good talks made trip even better. The guides made sure we knew where to be and safe (no bears). Walking hikes had options for fast hikers or 1st time out hikers.

Outstanding Guides

The variety of events, hikes and accommodations made this adventure exciting and memorable. Our Trip Leaders were incredibly knowledgeable and proved to be great decision makers when bad weather rolled in and we had to make itinerary changes on the fly. Our accommodations and meal options were excellent. We will definitely be VBT-ing again.

Exploring a National Treasure

This was our first trip with VBT and my husband were very happy we explored our National Parks this way. We loved our guides. They were both very knowledgeable and great complements to each other. We always knew we were in very capable hands.

Incredible Yellowstone

There is no place on earth like Yellowstone. We loved the hikes, although the smoke drifting from California fires was disturbing. Global warming is now.

The park was so dry that they should outlaw smoking.

Yellowstone & Grand Tetons Hiking Tour

Great hiking and scenery. The best part was our fantastic guides who had a wide expanse of knowledge re: the history, geology, flora and fauna of the areas.
