Guest Feedback: Yellowstone And Grand Teton National Parks

Guest Feedback: Yellowstone And Grand Teton National Parks

We are reminded why we work so hard to create adventure vacation experiences whenever we get positive feedback from guests.

Every once in a while, though, we get feedback from guests who describe the magic or transformation we hope to foster in words we wouldn’t have thought to use, in descriptions that surpass even our expectations.

Chris and Belinda Manuel, of Denver, CO, recently joined us on a Yellowstone-Grand Teton Explorer trip. They sent us a note following the trip that quickly got passed around the O.A.R.S. staff:


“At the end of the trip, on the drive back to the hotel, I remember looking at all the people parked on the side of the road or at the turn-offs taking pictures of the Grand Tetons. I remember feeling a little sorry for all of them because many of them were not ‘experiencing’ the park like we did. They were only going to capture a picture and then get back into the car. The park is so much more than a picture, and you get to appreciate this on your OARS adventure. Last year was our first O.A.R.S. trip. We enjoyed it so much that this year we are going with O.A.R.S. down the Colorado River to experience the Grand Canyon. We wanted more than a picture.”


Thank you, Chris and Belinda.

We can’t wait to see you on the Grand Canyon.
