The bus trip was such a good way to go through Glacier. The guides are knowledgeable so it's a fun way to see the beauty and find out about the park. No need to watch the road like you do when you drive yourself.

This was a highlight of our trip through Glacier. We did this on impulse and sure did not regret it - the guide was fantastic and a total wealth of information. It could not have been better. They provided blankets to put over our laps (was cool) and the open top bus was great for the ease of viewing the... More

This was one of the highlights of my trip! It was great to have a driver so we could all look at the sights as we traveled up to Logan's Pass. Our driver was very knowledgeable and shared so much interesting information. We stopped at a few lookouts along the way and saw mountain goats and big horn sheep in... More

My son and I took the Red Bus tour, with Steve as our driver/tour guide. He was amazing with his knowledge of the park and his concern that his guests had an amazing adventure. We were lucky enough to see Bighorn sheep, mountain goat, and 3 grizzly bears -all from the safety of the tour bus. We could have driven... More

This was the best way to see Glacier National Park. Our tour guide knew so much about the park and Montana in general. It was very educational for our kids. We really enjoyed this and recommend everyone do this tour.

We did both, driving the Going to the Sun road one day, and taking the bus another. Both have their value. However, if you have to choose one, choose the bus. These machines are incredible. They go all the way back to the opening of good roads in the park. They are evidence of the height of American automobile design... More

this is the only way to do the Going-to-the-Sun drive. The road is very tight so if you drive you will miss everything. The tour driver was outstanding with information, history and jokes. Was giving one of his last tours before retiring at 82 years old. What a pro he was. This is a first class operation well worth the... More

We enjoyed our tour and even in the rain there was plenty to see. The 1st snow fall had occurred the day before so the Going to the Sun Rd was closed at Logan's Pass so we could not travel as far as planned. Rich did a wonderful job of telling us lots of history and local information in an... More

As you going down the motorway in those 1938 or 1939 vintage car, it is an experience of a life time. Don't bring a lot of stuff with you. There is no storage space at all. One small day pack is all you need. Because you can stand up during many stops, you need to be prepared. It maybe cold... More

Did the Western Alpine tour on Oct 9. It basically poured rain or sprinkled the entire tour but Jammer Rich made the most of it. Because of the rain, we got to see more waterfalls than one might at this time of year which was great for us. Rich was such a knowledgeable driver and his love for the park... More
