Great trip for those who desire to learn along the way as well as see the sights. Excellent instructor and guide team, Catherine and Bill Cain. A wealth of knowledge about the flora, fauna, geology, history and wildlife issues.

Yellowstone Safari exceeded my expectations. Catherine Cain, our instructor, was extremely knowledgable, personable and accessible and I felt that I had an excellent understanding of Yellowstone's wildlife, ecology and geology. Fall was a beautiful time to experience this park!

Wonderful program, great leader.... be prepared for 8000 feet, watch out for altitude sickness. Old Faithful Lodge was great, breakfasts were great. Don't expect gourmet lunches or dinners - cafeterias were awful! So don't go for the food, go for the scenery....

This was a thoroughly enjoyable program, with lots of wildlife on view, gorgeous scenery, an excellent naturalist guide who could see things not visible to most of us, and a great group of companions. I can recommend it highly. One caution: travelers with respiratory problems should be aware that most of excursions are at high altitude and may leave you breathless in more ways than one.

Are you ready to venture onto a 2.2 million acre dormant volcano, with diverse wildlife, both plant and animal? Visit a land that has hands off to commercial use for the sake of profit, greed, and exploitation. A paradise of geisers and hot springs with an Old Faithful. We can only hope and pray that Congress will keep it that way, and neither the land nor congress will be for sale.
