Any feedback RE "Scenic Safaris"

Hey guys,

I was planning on booking a tour or two with this crowd called "Scenic Safaris". They appear to do some pretty awesome guided tours.

This is their site http://scenic-safaris.com/

It is proving hard to find any reviews about them though... which makes me a bit suspicious.

Anyone heard anything good/bad about them?

Thanks in advance.

They are fairly new according to Wyoming Secretary of State. However, that doesn't mean anything bad - perhaps try them out and be the first to help others by providing a review on TA!

I think they're affiliated with the company that owns Signal Mountain Lodge.

This company is owned by the same parent company of Signal Mountain Lodge and Mad River Boat Trips. This means that they are corporate owned, not a small family run business. They started running scenic tours in the summer a year or two ago, but were booking them and running them through Mad River. The "Adventure Center" booking office is made to look like a concierge service, but is dedicated to booking offerings owned by the parent company.

If you are looking for an alternative, I think that the Teton Science School has a great tour. They are no the typical "for profit" tour company as it is run by a staff of field biologist that are associated with Teton Science School and called "Wildlife Expeditions". They are not affiliated with any other company as far as I know.

Hi GOWYO - You are correct, Scenic Safaris is owned by the same owner as Mad River Boat Trips and Signal Mountain Lodge. It is corporate owned, but that corporation has one owner, not a board of directors. All the local businesses are locally managed and operated by people that live here in Jackson Hole. Scenic Safaris only started running wildlife tours last summer, but they were booked directly by Scenic Safaris. Mad River has never operated wildlife tours. Scenic Safaris does lease the Mad River building in the winter, much like some of the other winter/summer partnerships trying to utilize rafting building space during the winter months here in town. The Jackson Hole Adventure Center is a concierge business. We partner with many outfitters for activities in town, such as horseback riding, rafting, paragliding, dogsledding, snowmobiling and anything else you can think of. Of course, we support our sister companies. We have an established relationship of trust with those businesses, just as we continue to build relationships with other area outfitters.

Hi, I run the Jackson Hole Adventure Center. We support over 20 local businesses by regularly booking their activities and lodging. We also book Scenic Safaris tours, which is a small fraction of what we do. I am a local and run this business, but true I do not own it. I love the freedom I have to seek out great local outfitters and support them by inspiring visitors to do and see all the wonderful things Jackson has to offer. Scenic Safaris is similarly run only by locals. Their guides are all locals as well- I highly recommend Dwayne- he's an exceptional guide.
