We drove out to Glacier National Park from Wisconsin in September. We saw many wonderful things on the trip both going and returning, but Amtrak will take you right into East Glacier. We booked the all day circle loop Red Bus tour. This was brilliant on our part. We toured in September and had a window of glorious weather. We... More

We went to GNP in August 2015. I had reserved this bus tour early and was so glad I did! It was fantastic and our bus driver Carl was just the best ever! We did the half day to Logan Pass on the going to the sun road. Carl gave us all of the history of the park and pointed... More

As a former Jammer it's hard to know who enjoys the tours more, you or me. The biggest thing that I remember was the training to drive The-Going-To-The-Sun-Road, brakes are only for emergencies. Now that I've got you wondering I'll explain. We would start out from Logan pass heading west toward Lake McDonald when we got to the "Loop" the... More

We did the Eastern Alpine Red Bus tour our fist day in Glacier. We had originally booked at morning tour but woke up to thunderstoms, so we were able to switch to the afternoon tour instead. It was still cloudy and chilly, but the tour was great! The red buses are so nice and the guide was great - we... More

I have to tell you how very disappointing it was that we ended up on a red bus and an ADA van instead of two red busses PER our reservation. The ADA bus was not open on the top, and it was a very different and not nearly as good experience, not for our group. I am sure it is... More

When we told our concierge at Whitefish Lodge we were headed to Glacier for the day---and that it was our first visit to the park---she urged us to take the Red Bus tour. We followed her advice and met Carl, our driver----also known as a "jammer" in park lingo---and the other guests at Apgar Visitor Center. We spent the entire... More

Our driver, Steve, was awesome. Very informative and friendly. we really enjoyed this tour! There were people on our tour that had already driven the road to the sun and they said that they still really enjoyed the trip because they learned so much about what they were seeing. We got a dusting of snow, at the top of the... More

We did the Crown of the Continent tour and started at Apgar Visitor Center on September 19th. We had 5 adults in our group (ages 17-50) and everyone said that they were very glad that we experienced the tour from the Red Bus...(which is the same as the reviews of most everyone on here has indicated). I only have two... More

I was a little nervous about spending a fair chunk of change on a guided tour when we had a car, but we were just coming from driving around Yellowstone and Grand Teton for a few days and I thought it would be nice to have a break and let someone drive us around for a change. I am so... More

I did the red bus tours since I was traveling alone and am scared to drive heights. The tour guide provided a wealth of knowledge and personality. It's definitely the way to see the Going to the Sun Road! The only reason I didn't rate them five was they lost my reservation.
