Honestly, I do not know why Jackson Hole gets all the attention for tours to Yellowstone. After looking at outrageous hotel prices for Jackson Hole, we opted to stay in Bozeman. What an excellent choice! We were also grateful that we could take a tour of Yellowstone offered by Karst. Hands down, the tour was phenomenal! Our driver was Michael,... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Mike was our driver of the year last year for good reason, and does an outstanding job on our Yellowstone trips. We appreciate your business and your review. More

I reserved a shuttle from BZN to Big Sky Resort with a flight getting in shortly before 9:30pm. I assumed that I would be close to catching the 9:30pm shuttle, but when I inquired at the desk, the attendant laughed at me and said there was no 9:30 shuttle and that I was scheduled for the 11pm one. This scheduling... More

Devon, We are sorry for your experience. On our website and in person we offer two kinds of service: our scheduled runs that we try to match up with flight times or a private shuttle. The scheduled runs are rate regulated by the Montana Public Service Commission and the rates filed with the state dictate whether a one-way or roundtrip... More

I had a bit of a scheduling nightmare on my recent trip out to Montana due to the snowstorm PAX. I called Karst to schedule transportation the night before as my flight had been rescheduled for the 3rd time. They were very accommodating, and even called me back to make sure they knew exactly where my destination was in Big... More

Wintertime and airline delays often throw us curve balls that we try to accommodate. Most of the time we are up to the challenge. I appreciate that you took the time to write a review. Thank you, Dan More

Karst insists in picking you up 4-5 hours early resulting in a three hour wait at an airport with nothing open. You go to bed so early the night before that you cannot go to dinner or enjoy the last night I. Front of a fire. The folks are nice but when there is no one else on the van... More

I am sorry you were not happy with the timing of your run. Our economy option, which is our scheduled service, has preset times. We also offer a private shuttle for those who prefer going at the time of their choice. Feel free to call us next time and we can get you set up when you want to go. More

My wife and I wanted to enjoy Yellowstone without the distraction of driving, so we signed up for a Karst Stage tour from Bozeman, leaving at 7:30 am and returning to our hotel twelve hours later. We weren't sure what we were getting ourselves into, but it turned out to be the highlight of our week in Montana and Wyoming.... More

Thank you for your review. I am sure Mike thanks you as well because this was one of the reasons Mike was picked as our driver of the year. Fortunately, it was a difficult decision because we have many great drivers. More

I hate to leave a negative review of a small business, especially one in Montana which is so near and dear to my heart. However, after two experiences with Karst Stage Lines, I feel I need to write a review so other travelers might be better informed. I booked return trips from Big Sky Resort to the Bozeman Airport via... More

Our adult children used their service to travel from the Bozeman airport to Big Sky. The woman I talked to on the phone was very helpful as I tried to organize the transfer. I thought the price was fair. They were on time and easy to find at the airport.

These folks couldn't have done a better job. They were on-time, very responsive by phone & email, and Mike gave us a very interesting tour of the Bozeman, Paradise Valley, and Mammoth Springs area. Since our return trip was in snow/sleet/ice conditions from Mammoth all the way to Bozeman, we were incredibly glad we were NOT driving!!!
