MacNeil Lyons, The Best Yellowstone Guide Ever!
This guy is a master at coordinating a three generation Yellowstone trip! This past August
(2014) our family, including grandchildren ages 14,11, and 9, spent two fabulous days
learning about Yellowstone with MacNeil. He turned the geology of Yellowstone into a
science lab, on a walk we "discovered" a Bison carcass, and all of this plus plenty of fun
and a great breakfast to meet the needs of all ages. He is a smart and funny charmer. Don't
even think about going to Yellowstone without talking to MacNeil first!

"We had a fantastic time with you! Better than advertised and would highly recommend you
to anyone considering a great adventure in Yellowstone. We are all very impressed with
your knowledge of the area and its wildlife, and your story telling.

"Thank you so much for a phenomenal three days. Your vast knowledge and excitement
about Yellowstone brought so much more depth, meaning, and life to our experience than we
could have gotten on our own. With your photography expertise and use of scopes, we were
all able to come away with amazing photos. We greatly appreciated your attention to detail,
thoughtfulness, and hearing about your experiences in the area. Thank you for going out of
your way to provide a customized and most memorable adventure for us."

"Wow. Simply wow! Nancy and I are still reverberating with all we saw and learned on
Sunday.  It was the best day, by far, that either of us has ever spent in nature, so many
thanks for making it such a magical experience. He's an amazing naturalist and guide...I've
taken a series of Sierra natural history classes with "experts", but MacNeil was by far the
best."  - Ellen, San Francisco

"Beth and I wanted to let you know how great our tour was. You did an outstanding job for
us and it exceeded our expectations by a wide margin. We really enjoyed the time we had
together and it was the highlight our trip and a fabulous wedding anniversary present for
Beth. It was very memorable and only gets better in the retelling...!  - J. Levine, Australia

" You were very knowledgeable and personable and we all learned a lot from your time with
us.  The time and preparation you put into having things for the boys was so appreciated!  
Both of our boys are on the autism spectrum, so we knew the tour would be a real stretch for
them... We hoped to keep them a little engaged and make it through at least a few hours...
Instead, we made it almost the whole time with your help...  It was a wonderful experience for
our family."

"I really enjoyed our tour. Thanks so much for all your information, help and knowledge. I
was so happy to see my first wolves in the wild and that was a very exciting way to see them
interact. Thanks, also for the bear pictures that you sent to us. Thanks again!"

"We thoroughly enjoyed our day with you. We saw so much and learned so much about so
many different aspects of Yellowstone while you made our day comfortable, safe and fun.  
Pretty amazing that we were able to see so many animals in a day. Wolves, grizzly, fox,
coyote, bison, mountain goats, big horn sheep, elk, raven (I probably left something out). I
appreciated the geology, botany, history, and current political dilemmas. Thanks so much
for guiding us, and for all you do on behalf of Yellowstone and it's creatures."

"From the first moment, you made our journey enjoyable.  We all benefited from your upbeat
personality and vast amount of knowledge. You showed us the wolves in their natural
habitat and how to detect different animal remains... Being able to see the places you hold
dear to your heart really made us enjoy Yellowstone even more.  Once again, thank you for
taking us on a journey we all immensely enjoyed!"
