"Hi! Shannon! We did have a wonderful vacation that was a trip of a lifetime! Everything was planned out ahead of time with a detailed itinerary that was easy to follow. Having reservations ahead of time especially for the Going to the Sun Road and the other tours was a big stress relief. On some days, the itinerary left room with options for us to choose our own plan for the day from hiking to shopping to just relaxing. Especially helpful was that main attractions were highlighted with suggestions for safety and best times to visit main attractions. We did not have any issues or concerns but we knew that you were only a call or text away if we had any trouble. This was a once in a lifetime trip that we could not have done so extensively on our own. We realize all the time and effort you put into planning this trip for us and we are very appreciative of all your efforts! We will certainly will consider using your service in future trips. Thank you again for all your help!"

"My husband and I had always wanted to take a trip West. I contacted a travel agent but they did not want to take the time to schedule our 3 week trip. I saw an ad for Enjoy Your Parks. I went to the websight and it was extensive information for the areas we wanted to visit. But, I was apprehensive. So I sent and email and Shannon called me. I expressed my reservations about hiring someone off the internet. But after speaking with Shannon, I took the chance and we were so glad we did!! Shannon had extensive knowledge of the places we wanted to visit! She took attention to every detail. She booked our hotels, she booked the tours we wanted to take. She made sure we had any tickets or entrance fees etc. that we needed. She was in constant contact in the planning process. Once everything was planned she sent us a 60 page itinerary that included our reservations, directions, hiking suggestions, restaurant suggestions etc. Basically, she sent us anything and everything we would need for our whole trip!! The places that we visited were: Glacier National Park, Yellowstone, Arches National Park, Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park, Grand Canyon, Hoover Dam and Las Vegas. I highly recommend Shannon… Enjoyyourparks.com!!"

"I cannot express how much we appreciate the work you did in planning our trip. You did a great job in planning and helping us to find places to see, things to do, and the all-important lodging! Everything went very well and it was one of the best trips we have ever had. Glacier National Park and Canada were truly amazing and you helped make it easy on us. Above all that, you were a pleasure to work with in all phases. Thank you so much."

"Hi Shannon! Thank you for planning our awesome trip!! We had such an amazing time!!
Everywhere we turned was “WOW”. My pictures are amazing! Hiking to the glacier was definitely a highlight! But it’s hard to say which was more beautiful!! We saw moose, elk, deer, bear, mountain goats and long horn sheep! Soo much of natures beauty!! We did soo much hiking, each step well worth it!! And we met soo many awesome travelers along the way!! We couldn’t of asked for more! Now that we have traveled these beautiful national parks, I can understand them better. I hope to have the opportunity to go back!! Thank you soo much!!"

"Good Afternoon. I wanted to say thank you for everything. We are home now but had a fantastic week. Everything went very well. I think we did everything you had on the itinerary other than some of the eating locations. We found ourselves eating at Johnsons a few times as the week went on. Good food and tired by supper time. We also decided to go up to Waterton in Canada. We were both glad we did. Early in the week it was very clear, it snowed one night so the mountains looked great early the next day until it melted off. As the week went on it became more smoky. We got to see Bears, sheep, and goats very close to us. Just off the path several times. No grizzly or Moose, maybe next time. Thanks again!"

We especially enjoyed our room at the Great Northern Resort even though we were only there for 1 night! Their main house that we stayed in was so pretty, clean and the decor was beautiful. The room and shower were so nice. Glacier National Park definitely did not disappoint!! Such a beautiful park!! We truly enjoyed your guidance with the different hikes and areas. We saw many breathtaking views, trails, waterfalls, wildlife and scenery!! Thank you for your help in making a big birthday a very special one!!! Much appreciated!!"

"Very pleased with the detailed planning of our trip to Glacier National Park. Everything went smoothly. There was information and recommendations for each day from hiking to places to eat and when to show up to beat the crowds and find parking. Timing was perfectly coordinated. I had never used a planning service for a national park but I’m glad I did for Glacier. Definitely would recommend to my friends and family."

"Shannon did an amazing job from start to finish. From helping me figure out what to pack, to giving a detailed app with the itinerary, helpful links and extra info. Working 2 jobs and having young kids at home, it was a huge blessing to have someone take the planning off my hands AND do all the booking. Thank you for your patience with my long list of questions and thank you for such a memorable trip. We will never forget it."

"We had a fantastic trip. Shannon was a life saver with her personalized and detailed planning. Her knowledge of the Glacier, Yellowstone, Teton National Parks and Jackson Hole and Cour d'Alene was invaluable. We were originally overwhelmed with options and were afraid that we would forget an important detail (like passes to a park) which led us to use a planner. We are so glad we did! She met with us multiple times and she helped us line up just the right accommodations and excursions for our family. For example she asked our hiking ability level and helped us plan our days in a way that were enjoyable but allowed us to see the highlights in each area with our limited time in each park."

"Hi Shannon. Now that we have arrived back home, after a month of travel, we wanted to thank you wholeheartedly for the amazing trip that you planned.

Thank you for your wonderful service, and we hope to meet again in the future!"

"Shannon Biegel with Enjoy Your Parks Travel assisted my husband and I with planning a family trip to Yellowstone, Grand Tetons and Jackson Hole. I want everyone to know what an incredible job Shannon did in assisting us with the planning of our trip. This was a very special time for our family and the trip was perfect down to every last detail. The itinerary was extremely helpful and provided maps and every detail imaginable. Shannon is personable, professional and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Shannon and her company. If you are planning a trip, do yourself a favor and give Shannon a call. You will not regret it!! She took all the stress out of the planning. Thank you, Shannon and Enjoy your Parks Travel."

"From beginning to end (Virginia And Nevada City, Yellowstone, The Tetons/Jackson Hole) our family trip was amazing! Each location was unique and provided experiences that exceeded our expectations. Virginia And Nevada City was like stepping back in time, Yellowstone is absolutely phenomenal and simply breathtaking. The Tetons/Jackson Hole was the perfect end for family fun. Rafting down the Snake River with our children and grandchildren was a priceless adventure. I am 100% convinced our trip was so memorable and enjoyable was because of you, Shannon! Your attention to detail, extensive knowledge of the area, the App (my Bible) and most of all your patience and kindness all contributed to making this vacation a trip of a lifetime. The memories we created will last a lifetime."
Thank you from the K. Family.

We enjoyed amazing wildlife viewing, beautiful hikes, and serene boating trips. Our accommodations were conveniently located to reduce travel time and we had good recommendations for meals (along with helping us save money!). The detailed park information you provided to us assisted in planning hikes and making the most of our time in beautiful Glacier NP!"
Trudie M, Warrenville, IL
August 18, 2022
"Shannon is a conscientious, meticulous, detail-oriented and personally-invested planner with whom we have been very satisfied. She knows the Glacier National Park like the back of her hand and without her guidance and detailed planning, we would not have had as wonderful an experience as we did (eg, we saw, from a safe distance, three grizzlies in three consecutive days on trails that Shannon recommended). The accommodations she recommended were also “off the beaten track” that exceeded our expectations. She took a personal interest in how we did throughout our whole trip by checking in and following up with us regularly."

Every detail was so perfect. The itinerary was beyond helpful. We were able to see a grizzly, moose, lots of bison, elk, etc. The smiles on our grandkids faces were worth millions. Thank you again for all the valuable information and planning. Just an Experience was so special. The cabins and the town of Virginia City were a hit with all."

July 22, 2022
"Shannon, Thank you for making our trip so amazing and worry free. You were with us every step and even making dinner reservations while we were there and letting us know where we could go for a great meal so we didn't have to put in a thought while we were on vacation. The idea for the trip came at a time when I was swamped at work and had no time to research. You took over and knew every detail and planned our trip perfectly. We had choices but they were narrowed down to a doable amount and you took care of the rest. It was a trip of a lifetime and we can never thank you enough."
Steel and Becky, Billings, MT
July 17, 2022
"Thank you so much for planning out the details of our trip. There were so many moving parts it would have been too overwhelming to plan this trip myself. You thought of everything! The details included on our itinerary were extremely helpful including where to see wildlife, what trails to hike, restaurants, what to pack and so much more. Such a wealth of information! The app was a great resource to have on hand especially when cell service was unavailable. The locations of all of our lodgings were so convenient to everything we wanted to see and do. Again, thank you Shannon for all of your work leading up to the trip. You answered so many of my questions before we left, we felt very confident we would make the most of this amazing experience."

"It was so great to have someone do all the thinking for us. Yellowstone actually closed because of the severe flooding just 2 wks before our trip and we were so worried that everything we had been planning for so long would have to be scrapped. Shannon reassured us right away not to worry and that they were staying up to date with everything. She took care of adjusting our accommodations where necessary without us having to think about it, made reservations for restaurants and suggestions for other things we could do with our 2 teens. She even found a way for us to maximize our time in Yellowstone when we found our time there would likely be limited with their limited access after the flooding. We would highly recommend Enjoy Your Parks and would use them again for planning a future trip!"

"You did a great job and we appreciated being able to email or phone you during the trip. The motel we enjoyed the most was Glacier Highland but all our rooms were nice and convenient to the parks. The food was also good at the Glacier highland restaurant. I think we enjoyed Yellowstone the most. YNP just has so much to see. You did great on our flight reservations, car, hotels and recommendations. Thank you for all your help and I will be recommending you to other people."

"We had a wonderful trip west and are SO happy we used your travel services! The idea of moving from place to place within 3 states made me feel so overwhelmed and it was nice to hand over all the arranging to someone else. It made the trip that much more enjoyable! It was great how we didn’t have to arrange anything and I couldn’t believe how much information you provided on sites to see and where to go. This is the longest trip we’ve taken and thanks to you, one of the easiest! We are thinking of taking a trip in 2 years to other national parks and will calling on you to plan our trip! Thank you so much!"

“My husband and I are so excited because this husband and wife team have planned our 4 week road trip to national parks in September. I thought it was overwhelming to plan it myself. When I saw their post I was excited because I needed someone to plan out the sites to see, hotels to stay at, restaurants to eat at etc. I told them the national parks we wanted to go to and the sites we wanted to see. Shannon planned it all. She can get lower prices for hotels since she books at many places. If you want help with planning your trip call Shannon. She can also book flights, find places for camping, bed and breakfast, hotel, cabin etc. They are the best to help you with your vacation plans.”

"Shannon did an AMAZING job planning our trip. We were gone on a road trip for about 2 1/2 months out west. We contacted her months ahead of time, gave her a list of all the things we wanted to see, and handed the reins over to her. She was phenomenal at every aspect of her job. Having been to many of the same places, she gave us all the activities to do, favorited recommendations, and how long to be in each area. We didn’t have to lift a finger. She diligently worked around the clock finding the best campgrounds, hotels, national park tickets, etc. Up until the trip, she had weekly conversations with us detailing our trip, conversing about the plan and how to adjust it. Even the finest details like dinner were accounted for by her. While we were on the trip, she would check in with us to see how planned events went. She also would update our itinerary as we went. Whether we requested something different or she just found better activities, it didn’t matter, for she was on top of it. So, she not only worked on our trip months ahead of time, but she also continued to work on it while it was happening. She is the absolute BEST trip planner we have ever come into contact with. She made our trip possible and made it most the enjoyable. We could have never pulled off the trip planning like she did. I 100% recommended using Shannon to book your next vacation. We will continue to use her for all our future trips. 11/10 would recommend her!!"

"I can't say enough good things about the trip Shannon put together for us. We saw everything we wanted and much more. This was a delayed honeymoon for us and was an awesome experience. (I made a promise many years ago to show her the mountains) During the trip I wanted to make a couple of changes. A phone call or two ( which as a side note was always answered directly by a real person or a very quick response from VM) and the changes were in effect.
Every single day was an adventure for us and we would do it all over again. The trip whole was planned in a way that allowed us to squeeze a lot, A LOT! into the time we had. All in all a fantastic job was done by Shannon, way beyond our expectations. In summary I'll say this, this was a once in a lifetime trip for us, now we have memories to last us a lifetime. Thank you so much!"

She provided driving instructions and sightseeing tips for our excursions into Glacier National park. Her nominal fee was well worth it for I knew nothing about the area. Favorite breakfast spot was Buffalo Cafe and dinner at the golf club was superb both food and service!"

"Hi Shannon! Our trip was awesome in so many ways. We were so glad to have been there when the crowds and temperature were down. Your itinerary was very well done, and the suggested things to see and do were very helpful and detailed. We printed it out (yes, because we are old school lol) and it went almost everywhere with us.
If we had not had your detailed list with us I know for a fact we would have missed many wonderful stops along the way. This is especially true on our travels from Yellowstone to Jackson. Larry literally read your list of places to see as we traveled south. And each stop was beautiful and picturesque. And let me talk about the scheduled activities....I am soooo glad we did all of them. I really think the 8 hr tour of Yellowstone was awesome. The guide was so informative, and we soaked it all in. But all of our events were great! I know for a fact we would not have known to make those part of our trip. Our vacation was all we hoped it would be Shannon. Your guidance was just what we needed for a trip I've been longing to take for several years. Thank you for making our time in the National Parks so memorable and fulfilling. We appreciate you!"

There is so much more to see and do and I can't wait to take it all in. I'm sad my trip comes to end today, but my happiness will never leave my face.

"I am so glad that we used Enjoy Your Parks to help plan our trip to Glacier National Park, Yellowstone National Park, and Grand Teton National Park! Shannon’s vast knowledge of the parks helped us to see all the best spots with the time we had available. Her directions on how to find these areas within huge parks was super helpful. Shannon helped us select the right airports to keep our costs lower without adding too much driving time to the trip. She also found us a rental car in a tough market. She helped us find reasonably priced lodging close to the parks in some areas we would not have searched ourselves. All of our trip info was available on a handy ap the whole family could view on our phones. It was well-worth it to get some professional assistance to make the most of our trip!"

You ensured that we had good to great accommodations and a sensible itinerary that accounted for all of the things we wanted to see (and then some). Your fee was well worth the price. The Arbuckle Lodge in Gillette was beautiful and a treat to stay in! All other locations were clean, well located and comfortable. Thanks!"

"Hey, we had a great trip. It was a lot of driving, but your notes helped us maximize our stops. We had some adventures along the way like:
1. discovering the granite falls hot springs in the middle of the night
2. Getting blamed by a slightly intoxicated host at our HipCamp in West Glacier for noise that was coming from a bar concert across the street where the host was attending. Couldn't figure that one out :).
3. Hiking to the Piegan Saddle from the route mentioned on your site. Never would have found this otherwise and it avoided the crowds. The wind made an amazing sound underneath the slabs at the saddle. It was popping rocks into the air. Never seen or heard anything like that.
A few food/coffee highlights:
Red Lodge: Babcock and Miles. It's an import cheese and wine store, but they have a $20k espresso machine hidden in there. Great coffee!
Jackson: Persephone Bakery. Wanted to eat the whole menu."

"Shannon did an outstanding job on coordinating our National Parks trip which included Yellowstone, Glacier and Grand Tetons. She provided great recommendations for hotels and hiking trails. She provided a details itinerary on an app that allowed for access with no wifi and provided helpful details for each day including meal options and how to avoid the crowds and traffic delays. Those suggestions saved us hours of time in line for the park and for food allowing us to spend more time in the parks. Without Shannon we would not have known the best places to find the animals, and would not have explored Virginia City and Nevada City which we really enjoyed. We did not realize they had so many buildings and stores retained from the late 1800's. She suggested play tickets in the town which was a great show. She provided updates throughout the trip to give us insights on best options. I highly recommend Shannon and Enjoyyourparks.com to others and have already shared with a number of friends who asked how we put together such a great itinerary."

We even had last minute flight cancellations and delays where she swiftly was available to continue helping us secure cars and additional reservations. Our trip would not have been the same, and not as amazing without her help."

"Shannon did an exceptional job planning my trip. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area and put us staying in the rooms by our excursions for the day which was a huge time saver. Every time I text her she replied immediately. I have already given her contact to three people and told them that I highly recommend her. She is so sweet as well. I give her a 10 out of 10 and will be using her again."

"First big adventure for us on this amazing trip Shannon planned for us! We did the most adventurous things, hiking, floats, cabin stays, chuckwagon dinners, rodeos, plays, trolley tours…. She knew all there was to do, planed them out and we easily followed the detailed plan! She also gave super tips and a listed out all there was to see and do…Yellowstone, Tetons, Jackson hole, Cody Wy, Virginia City, and Glacier all are unbelievable places to visit. That you Shannon for the thoughtful planning and wonderful journey! You were so easy to work with and created a lifetime of memories."

"Absolutely could not have planned a trip of this magnitude with out my new best friend Shannon. You were spot on with every detail of our trip. We printed out what we needed of the itinerary and enjoyed reading about the next area we were visiting. It included details about lodging, dining and activities all what you would expect and more. My favorite was reading over the personal experience Shannon and Dave have gathered about each hike. I’m so glad I made my first call to Shannon and could not have been more pleased."

"We all loved our trip to Glacier Park. The coordinated days on both sides of the park flowed very well and our rest day rafting in the middle was a perfect fit. We were in awe of the beauty of Glacier in every way and look forward to returning again very soon!"

"Shannon, Thanks so much for all your help. We had a wonderful time & thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful sites that Yellowstone & Tetons have to offer. The hot tub at The Pines at Island Park was an indulgence after those long hikes! Tao, our rafting guide made our experience so much fun- by far we had the most fun of all the other rafts! To my surprise, my 29yr. old son said the horseback riding was one of his top experiences. We ended that night by going to the rodeo right down the street- timing was perfect. The fly fishing gave us some spectacular views & showed us how hard it is to catch those cutthroat trouts. We implemented a great deal of your itinerary each day. At the top of the list was Lamar Valley- we arrived early enough for sunrise- to find many onlookers peering through their binoculars for the sited black wolves and black bear with her 2 cubs. Then to my surprise I came upon someone I know from my home town in New York who now resides in Arkansas. With his high end equipment we were able to see the animals!! So special. Our hike along slough pass led us to a field of bison with some “ behaviors” from the males that was quite interesting. We spent a few hours fishing in the company of the massive bison. Mesa falls in Targhee national forest was our favorite hike along with the boat ride at Jenny lake to Inspiration Point. Honestly, none of us had any thing negative to say about our experience. All of the accommodations & activities were awesome. Thanks for all your help. I have passed your information on to others."

"Hi Shannon, Sorry I didn’t get back with you right away, we were trying to play catch up when we got home. We had a fabulous time, it was a trip of a lifetime for us. We pretty much got to see what we wanted to, the only things that we didn’t get to see were some bear and moose I guess they were shy.... We did get to see some elk, lots of bison, a very friendly Rock Chuck and her babies and lots of Prairie Dogs. One day we did see two male bison have a disagreement that was interesting I have some pictures of that.... Mormon’s row was everything I thought it would be. At South Pass we loved Hamilton City. It took us a while to find it but was so worth it. That was a true ghost town, we were the only ones there and hung out for about an hour or so. When we left some local people came and we were able to talk to them and got some local history that was very cool. We did not get to stop in Jackson Hole it was beyond full of people. We were going to try and stop on our last day there we went fairly early and there was just no place for us to even park so we drove around the loop of the Tetons one more time which was fine with us. There are no words to describe Yellowstone it was beyond beautiful loved the Tetons but Yellowstone has the beauty. Old Faithful was awesome and the Old Faithful Inn is an architectural marvel just as some of those roads that were built back in the day. I have know idea how that did it. The Rodeo and Old Town Trail was a blast in Cody. I would do each one again if I could. We did stop at the Bill Cody dam that to was unbelievable how it was built. We could not believe the beauty of everything words and pictures cannot do it justice. As an outsider looking in I think that Wy is still a part of the Old West, not sure if she will ever be tamed. People are chipping away at it, but what ever they get from her it will be hard earned, this is not a very forgiving land. I hope that you find this helpful. We feel very blessed that we were able to do this trip! You planned a wonderful trip for us and I would not change a thing!"

"Your service was simply outstanding! You offered so many options for us, and if we did not take advantage, it was our own fault! Your help with securing reservations was epic as we could not have been able to reserve! We really liked Yellowstone Inn and Grouse Mountain. We are worn out from nonstop activity! So glad to be heading home! Again you were awesome, and I will share your contact information with anyone traveling there. I will keep your app and online information secure! Best to you 👏👏👍 and God bless you!"

"Shannon was absolutely AMAZING! We loved all the accommodations she picked. The itinerary she created for us was so perfect. Not too much, not too little. The perfect amount of highlights for us to truly enjoy every moment of our trip. She provided recommendations for restaurants, night life, shopping. Far more than just the places to go. The app was so helpful keeping all reservations in one, easy spot. We will absolutely use her again in the future!"

"When my daughter exclaimed she wanted to visit Glacier NP after graduating from High School, I wasn't sure where to begin. I stumbled across EnjoyYourParks.com and began reading. It was obvious Shannon and her husband knew their stuff! We exchanged a few calls and emails and she hit the ground running. The itinerary was outstanding! The places we stayed were amazing! Shannon's recommendations were spot on! Without the advice and guidance, I would have been lost in the sauce! Our trip was a success because of the detailed planning, preparation, and knowledge of Shannon. Best money spent! Thank you, Shannon! You are fantastic!"

"Shannon did an awesome job for us in planning and making reservations for our ten-day Glacier National Park vacation. With really minimal input from us, she planned the entire trip, including all shuttles required, tours/hikes that matched our physical limitations and so much more. Because of their extensive knowledge of the area and experience with local vendors, I would highly recommend Enjoy Your Parks Travel to anyone."

We loved the App that we could use during our trip. Shannon was available 24-7. Shannon knows many of the owners at the places we stayed so we were welcomed with open arms. Definitely will use Shannon for future trips."
