Our guide, Lisa was excellent, we spotted a moose, black bear and a grizzly within 20 minutes of leaving the Many Glacier Hotel. She was very informative about the history of the area, wildlife, geography, the buses and knew where to get the best huckleberry ice cream!

We took the Red Bus tours because the free shuttle does not start until July 1. We were not disappointed. Sam our driver has lived near Glacier for over 40 years so he had a lot of interesting things to tell us on the drive. Plus he knew all the places to hike. Doing the tour is much safer than... More

At first I was hesitant as I am of going on any group tour, I prefer to go on my own. But I cannot say how glad I am I went. Our guide Ray was amazing, very courteous, professional but friendly as well, his knowledge of the whole area including the history of the Black Feet Indians that still to... More

What a fun tour! Glacier park is absolutely fabulous! There are many lodges to stay in here in the park. McDonald lake lodge is a favorite as they have a boat tour of the lake and great views! Great service and very fun!

We took the Red Bus Tour on the Old North route and this was enjoyable - a special mention to Evelyn, our guide & driver, who was friendly and informative throughout. The tour took a slightly different route to that advertised as the Going to the Sun road was closed for construction but we did get to see the Two... More

Very hot the day we toured and the cars don't have a/c. Not bad when the car is moving but it took an hour from our original start time of 2 p.m. at the visitor center to actually get started. The cars make a second stop at Apgar Village and then a third stop at Lake McDonald Lodge. When you're... More

A highlight of any trip to Glacier National Park is a ride on the Highway to the Sun to Logan Pass. The road isn't as bad as many people say and you can do it yourself but if you do the driver will miss much of the scenery. It's better to take the Red Bus, particularly is your guide is... More

We LOVED our Red Bus tour! Yes, you can drive the road yourself, but it is a bit treacherous. With this tour, your biggest worry is taking awesome photos! Our driver (Rich) was so full of knowledge about GNP and this in itself was worth it. He knew the best stops for pictures. Vintage 1937 bus with roll-back canvas top---totally... More

Great having someone else drive so we can look at the scenery. Our tour guide, Tera, was funny and very informative. Loved that the top of the bus rolled back to we could see above us. The bus was comfortable, too.

Enjoy the ride on the Red Bus Tour's open top 1930's refurbished vehicles. Our "Jammer" was fun & informative. Ride Camas Road through the area of the 2003 forest fires, then on to Going-to-the-Sun Road. Ours was a 3 1/2 hour tour which took us as far as the road was open at this time of the year. There are... More
