Great way to get an overview of the park.

This is a must do at Glacier. The roundtrip on the Going to the Sun Road on the Red bus is a treat in most ways. You can enjoy one of most spectacular drives anywhere in the world without having to drive yourself. The views are truly breathtaking. The most special part is the guide. Ours was knowledge and engaging.... More

Not only are the red buses a sexy, beautiful, bright red making them great photographic subjects to include in your own snapshots, but the tours you take in them, are a great way to learn about the park when you first arrive. You kick back with other park visitors while others drive and you learn about park history, geology and... More

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.

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
