There are not many step-on, or private, guides in Yellowstone.  My advice to you would be to look on the website, which has a list of available guides in Yellowstone. Xanterra runs bus tours, too!

Early May can be a iffy time for roads. According to the NPS site, "weather permitting" roads from Canyon Village to Fishing Bridge and out the East Entrance should be open to vehicles. The West Entrance should also be open at that time since it's slated to re-open around April 15th. The South Entrance doesn't open until May 13th. Also, Dunraven Pass, the road that links Tower Junction with Canyon Village doesn't open up until later in the season. Great places to hit up in the park include:

  • Old Faithful
  • Norris Geyser Basin
  • Elk Park
  • Mammoth Hot Springs
  • Gardiner, MT (North Entrance Town)
  • Fossil Tree
  • Lamar Valley
  • Cooke City, MT (Just outside the NE Entrance. Some great food!
  • Upper and Lower Falls
  • Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone
  • Hayden Valley
  • Yellowstone Lake
  • and Cody, WY

If you were coming later in the season, I'd suggest Dunraven Pass (in the park) or the Beartooth Highway (just NE of the park, starting past Cooke City). Some excellent views on both of them. 

I hope this helps!
