We took two separate day tours into Yellowstone national park during the 2012 winter season using Buffalo Bus Company and had a fantastic time both days. Our first tour was a private tour through the canyon district with 'Old Tim' as our guide. A private excursion is the way to go if you have a group of like-minded people to enjoy it with. Tim was a fabulous guide with tons of stories and information to share. You won't have a bad day headed out with this guy. =]
We also took a group tour on a separate day to see Old Faithful and the surrounding geyser basins . I was worried the 'group' feel (22 of us versus the 4 on the private tour) would take away from the experience but we ended up having a blast. Scott was our guide on this trip, also fantastic, and did a great job story telling and moving the group around. A tip to make a group tour feel more 1 on 1 is to sit in the front of the bus. You'll have easier access to your guide to ask questions and you are also the first one off (and last on back on) the bus at each stop maximizing your time. I still would have preferred more time to hike around the geyser basin at old faithful (and a private tour would likely have allowed for this) but all in all, we were not at all disappointed. I highly recommend this company to host your tour into Yellowstone.
