5/5
I was having some anxiety about doing the planning on my own and coming home disappointed due to missing something fabulous but our trip was absolutely magical, thanks to your itineraries, online videos and audio guides. We purchased the Yellowstone/Teton bundle for our Sept 2023 trip. I was so thrilled that all the hard work was already done for us! We took your suggestion to change hotels to keep the driving to a minimum and got an early start to beat the crowds on popular places. The audio files were AMAZING! We learned so much as we drove from point to point. We would have been lost without your amazing itinerary! Thanks for all you do to take the stress out of the planning process and help maximize a wonderful experience in our National Parks!

ABOUT US

Meet Matt And Cheryl

Hey, We’re Matt and Cheryl and we are on a mission to help people have amazing vacations. Not only do we write easy-to-follow itineraries, but we love to share interesting stories in our audio guides about all of our favorite places!  

We live in Utah, just four hours away from awesome national parks like Zion and Yellowstone, and have spent our lives exploring the West and the Rocky Mountains.  We often travel with both sets of our retired parents (they like each other!) and our four teenagers (who like to travel…sometimes).

We met in a history of Utah class at Weber State University and tied the knot 22 years ago. Matt worked for Social Security and taught adjunct history classes at our alma mater. Cheryl taught special education for 28 years and continues to volunteer by teaching a weekly dance fitness class. 

We took a shot at our dream in 2020 and started making YouTube videos about the national parks we know so well. We now have over 10,000,000 views and have sold over 12,000 guides. We are delighted to help travelers fulfill dreams of their own! 

We love trying out all the activities and working with local experts to give the best, most up-to-date travel advice out there.

We Support This Park!

At We’re in the Rockies, we believe in preservation and donate 5% of the proceeds of your purchase to Yellowstone Forever, the parks non-profit partner, to ensure access and enjoyment for future generations.

BE YOUR TRAVEL GROUP'S FAVORITE TOUR GUIDE!

Still got questions? We've Got Answers.

Sure. If you have extra time, additional activities are listed in the guide.

But, we do think that if you have 5-7 days to visit Yellowstone, you should check out Yellowstone for 3-4 days and then head to Grand Teton for 2-3 days. 

It is easy to condense our Yellowstone itinerary into 3 days and we give ideas of exactly how to do it in the itinerary.

We also give ideas of how to see Yellowstone in 2 days.  It’s not our favorite way to see the park, but it is doable, especially if you are willing to do longer days.

No, that is the beauty of this itinerary. The days are interchangeable so you can do them in any order to complement your travel days in and out of the park.

Even though this guide works for travel from late May through September, we really enjoy visiting in September.

Yellowstone is a large park and handles crowds better than many national parks. However, there will be some crowds, even in September. 

We also like visiting in June/July because there are pretty wildflowers.

Something important to know is that Yellowstone gets a lot of snow in the winter. 

If this is your once-in-a-lifetime trip, avoid traveling in May or October as an early or late snowstorm can close the park down.

Yellowstone is our favorite national park, we’ve been there over 40 times and we have done practically everything both inside the park and in the surrounding areas.

We travel with both sets of our retired parents and our 4 kids (who are now teens) so we have a pretty good radar on the interests of most types of travelers.

We recommend what we believe are the absolute best spots in the park and give back up options for longer hikes or things that cost. 

We give activity descriptions and approximate prices to help you decide which activities are the best value for you!

We are of the mindset that you have a plan so you can be flexible.  

We lay out what we believe are the best activities for your time and money but we all have different preferences. 

Because each activity listed is color coded- as either a “must see” or a “nice to see”, and has an approximate time frame and cost, you’ll easily be able to adjust to best suit your group’s interests. 

We surveyed our customers and they reported that our guides saved them 10-20 hours of trip planning research, on average. 

Although much of the information included in this guide can be found with significant research, this guide combines what you need to know into one place and it is from a source committed to giving you the best information.

This guide cost us over $15,369 to create when you combine travel expenses, map creation, and formatting.  In addition, we have spent hundreds of hours visiting this park and doing additional research. The audio guide alone was over 100 hours of labor (but of course, a labor of love!)

Many of our travelers enjoy the confirmation that they have already created a good plan and may even find a thing or two to add to it.

Other travelers may find that our plan is similar to what they had already pieced together on their own.  

If you’ve already spent hours planning, you may not find maximum value in this guide.

Yes! We travel with our 4 children and both sets of our parents.  Although not every activity is for everyone, there are always backup suggestions.

We write these guides so all the work you should need to do is obtain your lodging and reservations.  We include maps, the time needed to complete drives and activities, and lodging recommendations (areas to stay-not actual hotels). We put boxes throughout the guide indicating it’s an item that you will need to take care of before you leave. We also give links to websites we think you should check before your leave.

Yes! Yellowstone in huge and there is no shuttle.  Almost every road in the park is paved and passable in a regular vehicle. There are a few roads that you can’t take an RV on and we address those in our guide.

Yes. We give approximate time frames that are needed to complete an activity.  The schedule is generally not so packed that you have to be a quick traveler.  But, if you know you generally need more time, you can make adjustments. If you are quick, there are suggestions for additional activities

This is a digital download so it will be EMAILED to you. That way you can have access immediately and have the option to download it to any device you want.

Yellowstone in the winter is a completely different park. This guide is written for travel late May through September.

Yes!! We update our guides as needed, but write the concepts to intentionally be as timeless as possible. We encourage you to purchase the guide as soon as you know you will be traveling. It will help you determine which areas to stay and how many days to obtain lodging. Upon purchase, you’ll be guided to create an account on our website. If we update the guide, it will automatically show in your account for up to 18 months after purchase.

It is not required but is HIGHLY recommended. We encourage you to create an account when purchasing the guides because you’ll have access to the links at any time.

You will have access to the updated guide through your account (another reason to create an account) for up to 18 months. We generally send an email announcement when we do an update as well.

We put approximate price ranges on all our activities so you know what to expect. The good news is that most things in this guide are free once you pay for entrance into the national park! 

Although we do suggest some hikes, we offer plenty of alternatives if hiking is not desirable including viewpoints and drives.

One of our favorite things about Yellowstone is that so many of the attractions are very near the road so you don’t need to hike to see cool things.

We also like many of the paths are boardwalks which helps with accessibility.

 

  • You will need to save the .mp3 files to your phone or tablet.  When you purchase the guide, it will come with instructions showing you how to save the files to your device.
  • You will need a way to listen to them while driving, such as:
    • bluetooth connection
    • cable connection
    • earbuds or wireless ear pods

    Initially overwhelmed by the extensive travel books I bought for Arches and Yellowstone, stumbling upon We’re in the Rockies guides was a game-changer. Their concise yet comprehensive approach made trip planning a breeze for my wife and me. From the moment we hit the road, the guides became our trusty dashboard companions, offering timely insights and suggestions as we explored Yellowstone, Bryce, and Moab (Arches). The meticulously crafted daily itineraries were spot-on, enhancing our adventure and ensuring we didn’t miss any must-see sights. What truly impressed us was the exceptional customer service. When updated versions for two of the guides were released post-purchase, we received prompt emails with clear instructions on how to download them, demonstrating a commitment to customer satisfaction. Thanks to the guides and audio tours, our trip was nothing short of amazing, leaving us eager to incorporate We’re in the Rockies guides into our future travels. Highly recommended for anyone seeking a seamless and enriching travel experience!

    Mike and I just returned from Yellowstone National Park. We bought the guide package and are thankful we did. We are seniors so our tour and enjoyment of the park was different than the biking/hiking crowd. We really enjoyed the history and stories as we drove. We had no idea that Teddy Roosevelt was such an outdoorsman. As we waited for Old Faithful to erupt, a resident bison wandered through the area as park rangers attempted to keep uncooperative tourists out of harms way. It snowed the day we drove to the Gardner area, it was incredibly beautiful. Yellowstone lake was frozen over. We had a bit of winter and a bit of Spring. This was the perfect time to visit the park. We rarely waited in restaurants, in traffic (what traffic?), and in West Yellowstone always found parking at or near the stores where we shopped. The package we purchased was worth every dollar. At 71 and 75 we tailor activities to meet our abilities. Thank you Matt and Cheryl for making the audio tour possible.

    This past fall we went to Yellowstone and the Tetons and absolutely loved it! Coming from eastern Wisconsin we rented a camper van for this adventure. We can’t thank you enough for the guides for both parks and the audio information as well, giving us a full experience and background history of these two areas. With your recommendation we did the Old West Chuck Wagon dinner and realized while we were there that it was their final dinner for the season! We loved the food, the entertainment, the setting,..well we loved it all! Thank you. Your time frames in the guides were spot on. Recommendations telling us to go to a location early because the parking lot fills up, etc were so helpful. You guys have really done your homework in sharing such great detail and in updating your guides when you see fit. We have recommended your guides to a number of people and have suggested they find you on YouTube. Keep up the good work!
    We are currently planning another trip out west for this fall with plans to stop at Rocky Mountain, Black Canyon of the Gunnison, Zion (second visit), Grand Canyon, Mesa Verde, and Great Sand Dunes. We will definitely be checking into your guides for this.
    Thanks for all that you do!

    We found the guide very helpful. Great tips and information. We also really enjoyed the audio guide as it gave some great information and stories about the places we were seeing. We would definitely consider getting other guides if we travel again to other parks.

    Purchased the guide for an upcoming trip, and was not disappointed. The guide is well laid out with a lot of great information and guidance. You can clearly tell there is a passion put into this guide. Highly recommend.

    I purchased the Yellowstone 4 day itinerary and audio tour for May 2022. It did not disappoint! It was so helpful. We were able to see so much more than if we had tried to plan it ourselves. We all loved the audio tour stories, even my teenager (that says something!!). The stories were very entertaining and kept our attention. We couldn’t wait to get back into the car to start the next story. The itinerary was very easy to follow and hit all the popular attractions with great tips that were on point. I was on the fence, then purchased this itinerary the day before our trip. I am so grateful I did. I highly recommend “were in the rockies”. I won’t hesitate to purchase another itinerary if we visit any of the other parks! Thanks for helping to make our first family trip to Yellowstone fantastic.

    I purchased the Yellowstone bundle with the audio guide for a 4 day trip in June 2021. I am so glad I found you guys on YouTube! We followed your 3 day suggested plan and I really feel that we were able to see all the highlights in the park. My family even enjoyed the accompanying audio of Matt’s history lesson as we drove to our destinations. (At first they grumbled but they really loved the stories of the wolves and the rockslide. They even complained when we ran out of audio files!) I love that the guide has a realistic time schedule for traveling to and from locations and even suggestions for hikes with little ones. I also really like how you suggest locations in the park with accompanying maps. This was my first time at Yellowstone, and I can see how easy it is to be overwhelmed by the huge park. Your guide made it so manageable for this mom! I bought two other print guides from the bookstore, but I ended up only using yours. Can’t wait to travel to Zion this summer and use your guide!
