"I wanted to stop for a minute and tell you how thankful I am that you were able to plan our epic adventure! We absolutely loved our adventure. You were amazing to work with and I very much appreciate you and all your hard work. Our favorite place was Glacier and we hope to go back very soon! I don’t know how else to express my thankfulness for you and all your did for me and my family. I do apologize for it taking me so long to get this note to you, but you are AWESOME!!!!!!!"

"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!"

"Shannon was extremely helpful in planning our trip itinerary to Whitefish/Glacier. Our accommodations and restaurant recommendations and reservations were spot on. 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!"

"Shannon - I want to say a great big THANK YOU for planning my trip and delivering such an amazing and awesome itinerary that did not disappoint for one second! I loved everything about it and all of my accommodations. This was a trip of a lifetime for me I will never forget and I'll definitely be coming back! 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. Thank you so so very much for all you've given me. Truly breathtaking, and very very much appreciated!!!"

"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 and your associates did a great job for us! There were a lot of moving parts with this trip and it had to come together relatively quickly. 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 had the most amazing trip because of Shannon. She was extremely helpful in making sure we had everything we needed to make the most of the 3 days we were at Glacier National Park. 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."

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."

"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 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!"

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!"

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 is the absolute best vacation planner. Working with our parameters, she planned every detail of our trip to Yellowstone, the Tetons and Glacier National Park. Places to stay, dinner reservations where possible, activities such as a Wildlife Tour and a Chuck Wagon dinner, directions and many, many tips about what to see and where to go (even how to find places to park!). Shannon was in constant communication during the planning phase as well as during our trip. She knows these parks and the areas inside and out. She truly has exceeded expectations and I highly recommend her services."

From where to hike, roads to drive on, bear spray and even what type of socks to wear you were invaluable. You kept us from making mistakes and even gave us alternative itineraries depending on weather and road conditions. You even gave us alternatives depending on our energy level. Without your guidance we would not have enjoyed our trip as much as we did. We were so impressed with your patience and attention to detail. You are so kind and generous with your time I would highly recommend you to anyone and certainly plan on using your services again for another trip."

(1 of 2 reviews) "Hi Shannon. Just wanted to let you know how wonderful our vacation was. We did several of the hikes we talked about. Unfortunately some where still closed due to snow such as the Highline trail, Siyeh Pass and Piegan Pass. Our first day we hiked Avalanche Lake trail. It was beautiful. We then had a rainy day but made the best of it and walked along the GTS road while it was still closed and had it practically to ourselves. We walked from Jackson Glacier Overlook to almost Logan Pass and had wonderful views of the mountains including a Grizzly bear. The next day we loved hiking Grinnell Glacier Trail. It was fantastic! The following day the road opened and we drove along GTS road and hiked to Hidden Lake which was a challenge with lots of snow still there. Our favorite and most challenging hike was Dawson Pass where we almost made it to the summit of Mt Helen. Spectacular! We had our adventures though and did not make it in time for the boat on the way back and ended hiking/walking about 13 miles. On our last day we were exhausted and we enjoyed the West side again and lake Mcdonald area. Thank you so much for making this all possible for us. It was just awesome!!"

We will definitely be back. Eagle Ranch was awesome as well. We have made such wonderful family memories and I could not have planned this without your help. We are so excited to get to Cody next.

Every day was magical, from the wildlife tour, the whitewater rafting trip, the horseback ride and the boat tour. Your itinerary was a masterpiece. And our lodging was an absolute dream. We can't thank you enough. You are a treasure and we are going to tell everyone we know who's planning a trip out West about you. We can't thank you enough. This was a fantastic vacation, and it's all because of you Shannon."

"Shannon saved my family's vacation! I thought I could easily handle planning our Glacier, Yellowstone and Grand Teton trip, but the further I got into it, the more of a nightmare it became. I couldn't find the lodging that fit within our budget, and the car rental situation was horrific. Plus I had no idea where to go and how to go about touring these three parks. The more I researched on the web the more confused I became. When I discovered Shannon, I was practically in tears I was so frustrated. Even though she only had two weeks before we were getting on the plane from Asheville, she went to work and did her magic. She spent hours and hours revamping our lodging and itinerary, and found us a reasonably priced rental car when no cars were to be found anywhere. I still have no idea how she pulled all of it off but she single handedly saved our trip. And not only did she save it, it ended up being the best vacation our family has ever taken. Looking back, if I had not found Shannon, our vacation would have been a very expensive disaster. Shannon is a miracle worker when it comes to planning vacations in these three parks... I guess that's where 40 years experience comes in! I am recommending her to everyone I talk to. She is wonderful."

"We arrived safely back to a rainy, foggy Atlanta (there was some tropical storm passing on the eastern coast over the weekend, lots of rain). I wasn't able to keep up with daily updates, but we followed your itinerary and wow, we saw tons of things. We saw a grizzly on our way to the Grand Teton (very close, it was crossing the road ahead of us and stopped to stare at us). After hiking to Hidden Falls and then to Inspiration Point (didn't go any further, it was becoming so demanding for my autistic son that has a fear of heights), we had a wolf darting parallel to us for a few hundred yards on Antelope Flats and then we saw a moose and its calf on Gros Ventre (that moose was easily 7 feet tall). Our drive to Red Lodge was equally eventful. We were stuck in a 20min bison jam in Lamar Valley (exactly at the Soda Butte Cone). This time they were so close that their foul smell was noticeable; my sons laughed at their calves jumping back and forth on the road. We ate at Cooke City, then hit the Beartooth Hwy. Wow! We stopped at many pullouts and just sat on the rocks on the side of the road to breathe the cool air, in absolute quietness. My wife was so scared on those winding roads going down, it was hilarious. Oh, and my kids had a quick snow fight up there (we only see snow once a year here in GA, and it is generally no more than 1". We really had a great week in WY and MT, and it is thanks to you. I am attaching 2 pictures (we are still going through the thousands of pictures we took). You will recognize both places I am sure - one is with the entire family and the other is of my middle son (autistic) admiring the Grand Tetons at a very specific spot you will recognize. Again, thank you a bunch, we are very grateful."

June 12, 2021"I am an experienced traveler and have utilized many travel planning services in the past 30 years, and I can honestly say that Shannon Biegel is by far the best travel planner I have ever worked with. My Yellowstone-Teton-Glacier trip that I just returned from was nothing short of perfection. Her incredible attention to detail, her passion for what she does, and her ability to find outstanding lodging and tours when everything appears to be booked up is amazing. And her knowledge of these parks and surrounding areas is priceless. Not only is she a very kind person, but she truly cared that I have a great trip. I really enjoyed working with her. Shannon Biegel is the best kept secret in the travel industry, but not for long because I am telling everyone I know about her."-Patricia, Miami, FL

"Hi Shannon. We just had the best vacation ever, and it's all because of you! Where do I begin? Your itinerary was nothing short of PERFECT! We loved every place and activity you recommended. The kids were in heaven the entire time, as well as Tom and myself. The white water rafting on the Snake was unbelievably fun and we even got to see grizzly 399 and her 4 cubs! Our cabin rentals were all fantastic the entire trip and you saved us sooooo much money. The drive over the Beartooth Highway was unforgettable, and both wildlife tours were awesome! And Tom can't stop talking about that 4 pound cutthroat he caught on the Snake River... his guide was so nice and professional. It was the highlight of Tom's trip. We are all so happy and satisfied. I AM SO GLAD I FOUND YOU SHANNON! This vacation through the Tetons and Yellowstone would have been a disaster if the planning had been left up to me. It was a nightmare trying to figure it all out on my own. I had no idea what to plan or where to stay because I've never been there before... and the internet is so confusing with all the different advice and such. It's a miracle that I discovered you and it completely saved our trip. My family thanks you from the bottom of their hearts for all of your hard work and countless hours putting it together. If was obvious from the start that you sincerely love what you do and you sincerely cared about providing us the best vacation possible. We will never, ever forget this dream vacation and we will never ever forget you! Thank you again Shannon!"

"After being caged up for a year because of the Covid-19 pandemic, my husband and I abruptly decided on a Tuesday morning that we would take a two-week driving vacation out west. We had rehearsed it in our minds a hundred times over the 30 plus years we have been married. We own our business, so we made the announcement that we would be leaving the following Saturday. At that time, we had no idea where we would stay or what our route would be. I found Enjoy Your Parks on the web, and after studying the web page, I contacted Shannon. Within three days, she had dotted every I and crossed every T of our two-week trip. To our intense delight, Shannon seemed to intuitively know what our itinerary should be. Every place we stayed was just the proper driving distance from the other, each with a unique experience. She knew where to go, how long to visit, and what to do while we were at each place. Our trip took us through the Bad Lands and the Black Hills of SD and then on to the Lamar Valley within Yellow Stone National Park. Everything was perfect, from the rustic Frontier Cabin in Wall, SD, to the Alpine Hotel in Hill. We traveled all over the Bad Lands and the Black Hills, exploring everything we could find. The wildlife encounters were incredible, with more to come. From Hill, we tackled the 7-hour drive to Mammoth Hot Springs, MT, where we stayed a night at the fancy, dancy, Mammoth Hot Springs Resort. Here we soaked in the natural spring waters and enjoyed one of the most delicious meals ever. From there, we traveled through the Lamar Valley to Cook City, population 83. The wildlife tour with Audra was fantastic, and I can’t say enough about the strange little town. After two nights there, we moved on to West Yellow Stone for three nights in the Holiday Inn. Then our trip took us south to Jackson, WY, where we stayed at the beautiful Trail Creek Ranch. After another fun Wildlife tour with Jim, we knew that we had seen every animal that lived in Yellow Stone. I can’t say enough about how relaxed and fun this trip was. We could not have made a dream come true without Shannon. She nailed it!"

"We can't thank you enough Shannon. Steven and I had the absolute BEST vacation we've ever had, and we owe it all to you. Your countless hours putting this together, and your expertise really paid off... we never could have done this without you. How you made everything gel together between Grand Teton, Yellowstone and Glacier still amazes us... and we loved Virginia City by the way! Our cabins, our car rental, our itineraries were perfect. You not only saved us an incredible amount of money, but you made our vacation a thousand times better than what we would have put together. You know these parks like the back of your hand, and you knew exactly what we'd enjoy. We are telling everyone we know about you. Steven and I again thank you. What you did for us was priceless!"

"Shannon you are amazing!!! The care and time and detail you put into my Yellowstone-Glacier trip was far beyond the call of duty, but I sure appreciate it because I had the time of my life!!! I will forever be grateful to you. I'm so glad Jan referred you. You are a gem. The trip was nothing short of spectacular. I can't recommend you enough to anyone wanting to vacation in Yellowstone or Glacier park, in fact, I just told my sister about you and she'll be calling you."
Susan J, Boston, MA
"I cannot even begin to calculate how much money you saved us on our vacation out west And at the same time you designed our dream itinerary. If we had to do this all ourselves, I'm quite confident we would have failed miserably! You are so good at what you do. Thanx a million."
Ron & Paula T, Lexington, KY
"What we appreciate is not only the fact that you put together an incredible itinerary for our Yellowstone Park trip, but you were there for us DURING our vacation when we had questions!"

"On behalf of the entire family, I really want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Everyone had the time of their life, from the cowboy chuckwagon, to the white water rafting and the horseback riding. And of course the wildlife tour in Grand Teton Park where we got to see grizzly 399 and her four cubs!!! the entire trip was awesome! The kids haven't stopped talking about it. I feel so blessed that we found you. Mark and I want to take the kids to Glacier Park next year, so you'll be hearing from us again very soon!"
