So glad we did the guided tour. We did two tours with Yellowstone Safari Co. during our stay. The first was the highlights of the park and that was worth it - just in the time they saved us by knowing where to go when. The second was the wildlife tour and I never expected to see all that we did - wolf, badger, foxes, bears, mountain goats, coyote, elk, and of course bison. We would never have been able to find them all on our own. The guides were both great, highly recommend.
