Frequently Asked Questions-General

Find quick answers here. Check out our blog for details.

Do I need a park pass?

Yes. Each park requires a pass. It is easiest to purchase one at the entrance gate.

The National Park Service has many options for park passes, including senior, military, season, and even 4th grader.  

 

Should I rent a car for my time in Jackson?

Jackson is a taxi town.  You can easily get a taxi from the airport to the town, so a rental car is not absolutely necessary if you are staying in town.  Many activities (rafting, etc.) provide transportation as well, so getting a rental car can be avoided if you plan well.  

Many of our guests fly in, stay in Jackson, do a two-day tour of Yellowstone to get oriented to the area, and get a rental car on the way back to town.  That way, they can get some ideas for what else to do/where else to go while they enjoy the region on their own.  

It is easy for us to drop off someone at the airport so they can get a rental car on the way back to Jackson.  

Then you can start your own exploration.  

For our guests, we will happily brainstorm itinerary ideas or offer suggestions for other activities.  

Will you pick me up at my hotel?

Yes, if you are staying in Jackson Hole or Teton Village. Within this area, we can pick you up at your doorstep and drop you off after the tour.

We’ll set up a meeting spot if you are staying outside of that area.

 

 

What should I wear?

Sturdy walking shoes, hat, layers (including a light jacket for chilly mornings or sudden rain).  

Do I need to carry bear spray?

Your guide will have bear spray and they know how to use it.  🙂

Is there cell phone service in the park?

We are masters at the cell service spots of the park-the exact places where you can send a quick text or get online if you need to do some business out in the wild.  

Just let us know your needs and we accommodate.  

Is breakfast included?

Yes. We will take care of you during your time with us. Tours leave early; we will have breakfast, snacks, lunch and bottled water.

What should I do about hotels? Do you have recommendations?

We can absolutely help you navigate the different areas of Jackson and its lodging options.  

If you take a tour with us, we will provide you will a wealth of resources, including hotel recommendations and a restaurant guide.  

We will let you know the places with the best location, value, and quality.  ‘Cause we’re cool like that.
