Did an all day bus tour of Yellowstone the week before and it was excellent!! The Road to the Sun in Glacier was still closed and looked like it would not open until early July. The tour was supposed to do the 50 or so miles on the Sun road. Since it was closed, they offered an alternate route, which... More

The Red Bus Tour is definitely a great way to see the Going To The Sun Road. Everyone in our party was able to enjoy the breathtaking ride. If we had driven ourselves, the driver would have missed most of the view while paying attention to the road. Our Red Bus driver, Jamie, was the perfect guide. She was incredibly... More

We did enjoy the Red Bus Tour of Going-to-the-Sun-Road, but a few suggestions. We did the Crown of the Continent Tour from the east side, which went to Lake McDonald and back. Glad we chose this because we were able to see the sights from two vantage points, and the other tour would have just kept going past Lake McDonald,... More

We took the West Alpine Tour and very much enjoyed it. The tour covers the west side of the Going to the Sun Road, as well as the Apgar village, the Lake McDonlad Lodge, and Logan Pass visitor center. Our guide, Larry, was very pleasant and very much a professional. There was a couple on our tour that were a... More

We took a 3 hour tour on the east side and that was plenty for our 8 and 12 year old. It was fun, but ultimately it's just a tour bus. The weather was lovely but the sun was extremely hot with the top back. Bring a hat and sunglasses. Stops are few, so expect to sit most of the... More

I booked this trip, based on the great reviews that this tour had. My expectations were exceeded by this tour. The buses were vintage 1930 models and our driver and guide, Chad was the best ever! He stepped out and got our doors everytime and made sure, we saw all the scenic spots in the Going to the Sun road.... More

My husband and I took the Majestic Mountain tour and we had a great time! Our driver and tour guide, Decker, was awesome. He stopped at numerous places for us to take pictures and to get out and see things we wouldn't normally stop to see if we were driving ourselves. We had such a good time. Decker put the... More

We (2 retiree couples) took the Mountain Majesty Tour. We all agreed after the 10 day trip that this Red Bus Tour was the highlight of our trip. Karl made it enjoyable and pointed out many things we would not have seen on our own. There were plenty of photo stops, bathroom breaks and a gift shop/dining stop. It was... More

We have been to the park many times before, but this time decided to do something different. Seven members of our extended family reserved seats on the Red Jammers. We were able to relax, enjoy the ride and the beautiful scenery, and not have to worry about driving the narrow, steep roads. We took the 3 1/2 hour bus ride... More

Going-to-the-Sun Road is amazing, our driver wasn't. I assume every other driver must be a fun character to learn something from while taking in the awe-inspiring views of this incredible park. Our driver answered "I don't know" to most questions about the park. What's that peak? "I'm not sure, I can't memorize all the mountains" (all 20-something peaks, yeah, that's... More
