I signed up for a day tour of the lower loop of Yellowstone Park. Our driver/guide Karen was a pleasure, always willing to take an extra detour if it meant getting closer to wildlife or seeing a volcanic feature that was irrestible. The tour was comprehensive; we saw the canyon, falls, lake, Old Faithful and a number of volcanic features.... More

This is the way to see the park. We took the upper loop tour. This way we could enjoy both the scenery and the wildlife. Our guide was Matt. He made the trip very enjoyable with both his knowledge of the park and his personal stories. We opted for the $10 lunch which was very good. We would highly recommend... More

We did both the upper and lower tours. Saw more animals on the upper, but the lower had more interesting geological features (in our opinion), such as Old Faithful. Both were great. Guides were great. We had Jay and Matt. It's an all day trip with sufficient stops for rest room breaks, shops, food, exercise, etc. Would highly recommend.

Where to start??? I can't say enough about what a good experience we had. Great people in the office and great buses and great guides! Matt was our guide for the lower loop and Jay was our guide the next day on the upper tour. We were 2 couples age 65ish and had never been to YNP. This was a... More

What a wonderful way to start off our stay at Yellow Stone. Our guide Justin Parsons was just fantastic. We told him our top things we wanted to see and he delivered. He knew where to find all the animal species we hoped to see and more. He educated us on the history of the park, animal behavior, thermal activity,... More

We had a 10 day trip to the area and the day of the bus tour was so relaxing. It was nice to be able to look out the windows and see the views, versus one of us driving. Hearing the tour gave us a lot of insight we other wise would not have heard. The cost was nominal ~$75... More

We signed up for two day trips - northern loop one day led by Karin Jones. Southern loop next day led by Matt Henry. Two adopted "sons", Karin from Hinsdale, and Matt from Dayton - - both married with youngsters. The visual sights - safari-like on first day, geysers second day. That's about 1/3 of the experience, 2/3's the experiences... More

I booked this tour at the last minute and am so glad my hotel recommended these guys. Matt was our guide and he knows everything about the park. I did the south loop tour which took us to the Yellowstone Grand Canyon and Old Faithful among other stops. Matt seems to know everyone in the Park and by talking to... More

Buffalo Bus Tours did an awesome job. We had different guides for each tour... John and Karen. Both were extremely knowledgeable, had a lot of passion about Yellowstone, and did a great job with the tours. John had to deal with nasty weather...4-5 inches of snow on the ground and plus the snow that fel duringl the entire tour. The... More
