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

Very enjoyable, glad I did not drive the going to the sun road as I would have missed a lot of the views.

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.

My sister and I choose to take the 8 hour Crown of the Continent tour (beginning in Apgar village). Neither of us were particularly interested in being the driver along the Going to the Sun Road (GTTSR). This seemed like a good albeit pricy option. In the end, we found this tour to be worth every penny. Here's why: 1.... More

This is really the only way to see the Road to the Sun---if you drive your own car then you spent all of your time watching the road (which is a good thing). Dress warm and bring extra layers of clothing since it gets colder as you near the top. Xanterra worked with us because we were there during the... More

We booked an all day Red Bus tour of Glacier with Xanterra. It ended up being the day that a snowstorm hit the park. Xanterra chose to go on with the tour when it should have been cancelled. We spent 7 1/2 hours in 19 degree wind chills with no heat, there was zero visibility due to blowing snow &... More
