Aaron did a fantastic job taking us through Yellowstone, hitting all the highlights. While some of the hiking trails were closed, Aaron always knew another equally fantastic trail. His enthusiasm for the park was infectious- and it made it even better knowing he had been there so many times before. He had a lovely picnic lunch ready for us in a secluded area by a river. Our 13 hours flew by with Aaron and I could have easily continued on for days. He made our experience UNFORGETTABLE.

We've looked at multiple tour vendors and input from friends to how to best to use our resources for this trip and decided to rely on Tour by Local/Aaron. Our group of twelve totally enjoyed this seven day trip to Yellow Stone National Park. We benefitted greatly from Aaron's knowledge, passion, attention to details (road and surrounding safety and security), and his flexibility! Tours by Local/Aaron have definitely earned our confidence to work with them in our future trips!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was a great experience to share with you and this amazing place! It was great because everyone in the group had such great attitudes and wanted to get the most out of every experience. Thanks again for the opportunity to have a cultural exchange with you! I enjoyed it as much as you did.

When I read what other folks said about Aaron I wondered if they were just being nice or is he really that good. Well, he's really that good! I was blown away by his knowledge of the history of Yellowstone and he showed us everything we had hoped to see and then some. The lunch he provided was excellent and his van is very comfortable. I'm sure there are plenty of good guides in Yellowstone but there just can't be any better than Aaron. I highly recommend him. You will get more than your money's worth.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much, Ashley! You guys had such a great attitude on a rainy day and we were rewarded for it many times! My favorite was having lunch in the van because of the rain and seeing the White Dome Geyser erupt. Hope you had a great rest of your vacation!
Helen SchnelzerUnited States
From the moment he met us at our hotel in West Yellowstone we knew we would enjoy Aaron B's company, but his passion for and knowledge of the Park coupled with his eagerness to share its beauty and history were what made our two days so exceptional. He was quick to hear our particular interests and assess our physical ability and providing a picnic lunch (including tablecloth) that even meeting our rather odd sandwich requests. We were awed by Yellowstone, and by our guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much, Helen! I had an amazing two days with the four of you. You were all so kind and interested in learning all you could about Yellowstone. I can't thank you enough for the nice Jarrah wood pen. A true Australian gift! I wish you the best in all your travels!

WOW! I can't say enough good about Aaron. I booked him for a customized tour of the lower Yellowstone loop for 4 adults and he treated us to an exceptional day. He was so responsive to my requests; it was clear that he put a lot of thought into what I suggested we wanted to do. We wanted to be more active than passive, which of course is difficult given the amount of territory to cover. But he accommodated us. He is a great person and a great story-teller, so we learned a lot about Yellowstone.
David EdwardsUnited States
Aaron was the best! Great knowledge of the parks and accommodated all of our needs from 4 year old to 65 year old! This is the way to see Yellowstone!!!!
Richard MatsonUnited States
Aaron consistently exceeded expectations from the booking stage through execution for two private family tours in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks this past summer. He was responsive, easy to communicate with, accommodating, knowledgeable, professional, and patient with our multi-generational family group which included a number of children, parents, and grandparents ages 4 through 72. He helped us with other local references and generally added value to a memorable family vacation.

Aaron delivered as promised! We had a great 2 days in both Teton & Yellow Stone. Aaron showed us the known and lesser known jewels in both parks! Additionally he was able to share insights with us that enriched this experience. On top of everything, he arranged for great lunches on both days! We highly recommend engaging with Aaron for a customized tour! Thanks Aaron! Charles, Anneke, Denis & Jasper The Netherlands

Aaron is a blast and well versed on all matters of Teton national park. Extra roomy van, excellent picnic lunch (got to love the potato salad) with yummy sandwiches and sides and cold bottles water. Much preferred over tour companies as Aaron gives a lot of insights. We took the 8 hour tour and was perfect. Definitely recommend Aaron.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Larry! Thanks so much. It's an awesome experience for me when I get guests who are so engaged in the day that it makes me hone my craft more. For example, not only is Wyoming by far the largest coal producing state in the country, it wallops #2 West Virginia by 3 times the amount produced. That will be in my crazy facts bag, forever now. You also helped stoke my fire even more with building my business, can't thank you guys enough!

We had an amazing day with Aaron touring Yellowstone National Park! It was important to us to travel with a knowledgable and experienced guide so that we could get as much from our day as possible. With Aaron, we were able to not only see beautiful geysers, canyons, and hot pots of bubbling mud, but also had time to picnic along a beautiful river and see bison, elk, and birds with the binoculars he brought for us. We enjoyed Aaron's engaging commentary on the history of both Yellowstone and Grand Teton.
Karen HessUnited States
If you are looking for a guide who is striving to give you the best experience possible, then Aaron is your man. Aaron was knowledgeable about the wildlife, the history, and the geology of Yellowstone National Park. We visited Yellowstone during peak season and only had one day to spend. He took routes to minimize time on crowded roads. He customized a tour based on our desires. And he was very conscious and considerate of our needs for bathroom stops, snacks and water (both of which he had plenty).
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Karen! It was great to show you and Bill around. The 4 bears we saw today were not bad either! Thanks again, Aaron
Johnny MacdougallUnited Kingdom
Aaron should be the only guide in Yellowstone and the Titons. Expert knowledge, great company and helpful beyond all expectations. Who else would drive for 4 hours to get back the phone I had left in North Yellowstone? Aaron takes you to all the best places for viewing anything from mountain goats to stunning landscapes and at all times ensures your safety and viewing experience is exemplary. We have already recommended his services to our Sister in law for a tour they are planning next year.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Johnny!!! What an amazing time we had. It was awesome to do a multi-day and show you the hidden gem of Cooke City! Thanks for the great review and I was happy to do anything so you could concentrate on having a great holiday. The phone recovery mission was just an excuse for me to go back to Cooke City! Thanks again, Aaron
Bob RidoutUnited States
Aaron is so enthusiastic about the Grand Teton National Park. His tour could not have been better. He showed us history of the park, off beat sites like a beaver dam, and glaciers in the mountains. He is extremely well equipped with a scope, water and snacks, etc. His van has lots of head room and is spotless. We would use him again in a heartbeat.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Bob, I had a great time showing the two of you around. I hope it was a great finally to you Wyoming vacation!
Debora Russellbinghamton, NY, United States
Aaron was a wonderful tour guide, would highly recommend him, showed us sites that we would never have known about thank you for your expertise
Bobby LapinUnited States
Aaron could not have been more accommodating or creative with our tour. We wanted something unique with variety and Aaron knocked it out of the park. His tour included gorgeous views, great history, terrific local experiences and an ample supply of enthusiasm and fun. We could not recommend him more highly!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Bobby, so glad your crew loved it! I had a blast showing you around the hidden gem of Wyoming. It was easy when everyone in your group was so engaged in whatever adventure we took on through the day! Thanks again...
Sandra Price-HooperRancho Palos Verdes, CALIFORNIA, United States
Aaron is a Godsend - much of Yellowstone was closed & only the North gate was opened. He created a flexible exciting adventure for our family of 5 adults with exhilarating snowmobiling off trail in the Grand Tetons, and touring Yellowstone Park in his comfortable Transport van. We explored Mammoth Hot Springs & observed all of the Big "5"++ - Bears, wolfs, Bison & its baby, Pronghorn, antelope, elk, coyote ripping a carcass, & birds galore including Bald Eagle. Perfect Adventure thanks to Aaron!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sandy, what an adventure for all of us! It's difficult to convey in this small paragraph how much we experienced in that short of time. You allowing me the freedom to create a totally unique tour for your family was a great experience. This is what makes the Tours by Locals platform great! Your family's positive energy made it easy to have great days, even when the snow was flying! Thank you guys so much! -Aaron

Perfect guide. LG
