When we went it was raining so the we didn't get the open top. The tour guide was great (sorry I don't remember his name) Unfortunately because of the rain and we had to sit four to a row and I was not at the window, I only got about 20 pictures and being a photographer that frustrated me.

September 4, 2013, Glacier NP. The staff at Glacier Guides Lodges convinced us to take this tour. Even on short notice, they found room for us on one of the busses. Our guide, Karl, was terrific and made this wonderful site seeing tour come alive with many stories about the history of the park and related current events. This tour... More

We did the Crown of the Continent tour and the International Peace park tour. On both tours the guides were excellent and very informative about the history of the park and had many stories to tell. The scenery was spectacular and there were plenty of photo opportunities. We were able to enjoy the whole experience without having the stress of... More

We took the tour that starts on the west side of the park, goes a few miles past Rising Sun and then returns. It took about 6-7 hours with stops for photography and lunch. Our driver Glen was fabulous. A personable fellow, he is very informed about all things Glacier including the history and geology, wildlife, waterfalls even the trees... More

We had a 20 minute ride up to Logan Pass in the park. The open top allowed us to see the wonderful mountains, but it also provided a lot of breeze on a September morning. It was good seeing the first of our continental divides on this trip. I'd definitely do it again. Just dress warmly.

We took a 7 hour tour that included going over Logan's Pass on to the East entrance to Glacier Park and then the ride back. The ride on the Red Bus was interesting, if not a bit crowded as they sit 4 to a row. The way up to Logan's Pass, which I would never, ever want to drive, there... More

We had a wonderful time. well worth the money. Our driver Marty-kept us entertained the entire 8 hours(Big Circle) with stories, information and song.He stopped for many photo opportunities and offered many times to take our picture together. We could have not asked for more. Everyone should do it!

Initially we thought we wanted the half day trip but it wasn't available. So glad we ended up with the all day option. As a group of 3 couples we could enjoy the highlights of the entire park together without the driver missing out. The guide was personable and informative. An excellent day!

Ok, because of my title, I've made this very detailed. I have mixed feelings about this tour and it's not for everyone. We're glad we did it, but may not have taken had we known more. TOUR GUIDE: We had a great tour guide. He was one of the original volunteers involved during the bus conversion so he knew EVERYTHING.... More

A cloudy, rainy, misty day made the tour a mixed blessing. On one hand we could see the sites without having to worry about road conditions but we were hampered by the fact that the bus could not have the top removed. Our guide was great and provided many stories and interesting facts along the way. Many good picture opportunities.... More
