We signed up for the west side Crown of the Continent Tour and it was amazing! Our jammer was Tera, and I would recommend her at the highest level - she was personable, funny and very informative. She gave us all the impression that she wanted us to have the best possible experience. The day we went out was cold... More

“Red bus tour is not that great!” First - RED BUS themselves - Cute and Historic yes, canvas tops fold back to allow views of tall peaks. Drivers decide if the top is open. Some people wanted the top open, some didn’t, depending on where they sat. The ones who did not want the top open had the best seats... More

You will need to book this trip well in advance, particularly in summer. We booked for the week after Labor Day 7 months ahead, not knowing what the weather might hold in store. We lucked out and had sunshine all the way over from the west side departure, with clouds rolling in as we departed Many Glacier Hotel. The following... More

Nice to have the opportunity to see the sights while someone else does the driving. Our driver was a very cynical young man who talked a good bit about himself - talked too much and was obviously reading from a script. Our plan was to make the trip the first time on the bus and then drive it ourselves the... More

We took our Red Bus Tour from the Many Glacier Hotel over Labor Day Weekend. Our driver was Marlin, and he was so enthusiastic! He clearly loves his job, and why not? This is possibly the most beautiful place I've ever seen. We had perfect weather so were able to take the roof off. We stopped often for scenic overlooks... More

These buses are restored 1937 touring buses with a removable top. They are very safe and reliable. The driver is very knowledgeable and makes the ride fun. We saw bears and mountain goats on our trip. They allow plenty of stops for photos and bathroom breaks. The best part is that everyone in your group may enjoy the park.

The only reason I did not give 5 of 5 is because when we reserved the tour by phone we were told to meet the tour at Glacier Park train station . If not for seeing a large crowd in front of Glacier Park Lodge we would have missed the tour. Marty our guide was concerned about the reservation people... More

Went on this tour on Sept. 5th 2014, and weather was perfect. Driver knew many facts, but he didn't talk all the time which was nice. We saw a bear and a mountain goat. Roads were very busy so it was nice we did not have to worry about the driving...

WOW!! First of all, I can't say enough about our incredible driver/guide Matt. I feel so lucky that we were in the front row so we could be close to him. The beauty of Glacier National Park in something I can hardly put into words. If we had not spent the day with Matt, we would have missed out on... More

Our visit to GNP was very enjoyable and primarily due to the professionalism and attention to detail offered by our Red Bus Tour driver, Rod. Our driver was very knowledgeable about GNP and the features in the park. We took the Crown of the Continent tour and enjoyed the trip over Logan Pass to Many Glacier. Utilizing the Red Bus... More
