This was our second Red Bus Tour and we enjoyed it every bit as much. It wasn't quite as long because we were conveniently picked up at our St. Mary Hotel. The guide was most knowledgeable and could speak from personal experience since he and his wife are employed at Glacier NP in some capacity. As always dress in layers... More

Do not turn up your nose at this "bus tour." These buses are misnamed. They are a fleet of 1936 touring cars with convertible roofs of canvas, so you can stand up at stops to see the highest peaks and 360 degree views. There are only a handful of passengers and a (guaranteed) personable and knowledgeable guide/driver. If you choose... More

This was a great for us to see the park. The tour guide was fantastic. Very knowledgeable. After this tour, we went back the next day on our own to see a few places in more detail.

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
