High tea at the Prince of Wales Hotel. What a perfect way to get there: the red bus!

Having been to the Prince of Wales Hotel in Canada (you need your passport as I recall), I was determined to get my husband and granddaughter (13) to see it. And then I learned... read more

Having been to the Prince of Wales Hotel in Canada (you need your passport as I recall), I was determined to get my husband and granddaughter (13) to see it. And then I learned that the red bus had a tour to take us there for high tea. The perfect thing, except my family was not enthused about "high tea".... More

The bus was unique, the co-passengers were fun. It stopped at many beautiful places and the guide was very knowledgeable. I would recommend it.

We took the Big Sky Circle Tour, originating at East Glacier Lodge. Unfortunately, we had inclement weather, but Rich, our driver managed to turn lemons into lemonade with his sense of humor and very informative narrative. It was cold with on again, off again, drizzle, but he opened up the top of the bus just a short time so we... More

As right-hand-drivers with little snow experience we wanted someone else to do the driving on Going to the Sun road, and this was the right choice. Our driver was entertaining and informative for the whole 7 hours of the Mountain Majesty tour and the weather permitted top-down touring so that all-over views were available. In the row behind the driver... More

I decided to see Glacier and the Going to the Sun road on the Mountain Majesty Red Jammer Bus tour. I actually ended up driving the Going to the Sun road as well a week later but I must say I enjoyed the tour much more than driving it. Our tour guide and driver was Glenn and he was very... More

A Very historical and informative day. Our driver was full of information and stories. It started out a little chilly for us, we sat in the last row, shared a blanket with another couple and all was fine. Actually, the last row you have a "shelf" that you can put your belongings on. If we didn't take this tour I... More

I admit, after an unfortunate personal driving incident on similar roads some years ago, I am not the least bit fond of driving on such high, narrow roads with little or no safety barriers, so this alternative was a godsend for me. I paid $80,plus tip for the 8+ hour all day tour on the 'Road to the Sun', and... More

Neat old 1930's "White" Touring cars. Convertible top and pure class. 8 1/2 hours of being chauffeured around with sights to see at every turn. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and funny. Had a great time.
