The 5 days tour was super fun. I wish I had a better camera with me because you truly do get a panoramic view of Grand Teton and Yellowstone. For $564/per person, it was reasonable and much more fun than the normal bus tours (which I went on a few years ago). Definitely recommend this tour.

We had so much fun doing this tour. Our tour guide was awesome. We were late for our tour due to traffic. They were very accommodating and got us on the next tour that was fully booked. We sat in the back of the bus. It was still awesome. Very cool. Definitely recommend this tour. It got really close to the Niagara falls and that was awesome
