We had a West side Crown of the Continent all day tour scheduled for July 23 - 2 days after the great fire started. The tour was supposed to travel the length of Going-to-the-Sun road, from West to East, and then up to Many Glacier. Half of the road had been closed to all traffic, and some of the lodges... More

My husband and I took or 4 boys ages 10-17 on an all day tour. The day was a little foggy so our driver drove strait through the park without stopping at anything before lunch. ( he did give us a 10 min bathroom break at Logan pass) We asked if we would get to see anything and he told... More

This is a wonderful way to see the park -- because you can take your eyes off the road and really enjoy the scenery. Comfortable "old" cars with open roof. Knowledgeable guide, that made the tour very interesting. Really enjoyed this tour.

Best way to see Going to the Sun Road. The views are breath taking and our driver was interesting and knew the area--and also a much better driver on narrow winding mountains roads than I. The back seat of the vehicle is not particularly comfortable. I'd try for a seat near the front unless you have very short legs

The Red Bus Tour is a great way to view all the sights on the Going to the Sun Road...the highlight of the park. Our guide, Dave, was full of information, and shared it in a very entertaining way. We took the Crown of the Continent tour, which is an eight hour trip. But with several stops to take pictures,... More

A great way to see the Park as well as learn more about the park as well. The bus stops in some spots to allow you to stand and take photo's. It also stops at some spots to allow you to get out and take pictures / better view. A must do if you have the time.

If you go on this tour make sure you have an experienced driver. Brian, our drive, was new this year. He had two accidents and a near miss, all within our day long trip. The people in the back seat were thrown forward and one hurt his face when he hit it on a metal bar during the accident. Another... More

We took the Glacier Park Going To The Sun Road Red Bus afternoon tour Jun 30, 2015. So glad we reserved it after we found out that there are vehicle size restrictions on Going To The Sun road (we had a 30ft RV). Our guide Sherri was fabulous!!! She was very knowledgeable about the various glaciers and formations, history of... More

We did the full-day tour starting at Many Glacier Hotel with lunch at Lake McDonald Lodge. The Red Bus Tour is a great way to see the park for the first time. If I had been driving, I would have been awestruck by the scenery and couldn't have paid attention. The canvas roof on the bus rolls back so you... More
