When should you start Yellowstone tours in the morning?
"Where should I stay when visiting Jackson Hole?" Let's say you book one of the hotels in Yellowstone, but you hired a tour guide from Jackson Hole. Morning tours are perhaps better than afternoon tours, if your intention is to see wildlife. You may see bison all day long, but certainly not bears and wolves. And of course that means the guide has to be in your hotel early. Early when it comes to wildlife means 7 or 8AM. At times you should even start much earlier, say 6AM. The problem is the tour guide has to drive an hour and a half or even two hours to pick you from the hotel inside Yellowstone. By the time you begin touring the park, some of the wildlife has disappeared into the forests. We are not suggesting that you can not have successful tours when you stay inside Yellowstone. Rather, you should weigh between hotel location and successful park tours.
