So glad we did the Red Bus from the West side visit to Glacier. If we had it to do over, we would have done the 4 hour rather than the full day. Most of the better views are... read more

So glad we did the Red Bus from the West side visit to Glacier. If we had it to do over, we would have done the 4 hour rather than the full day. Most of the better views are covered going up to the pass from the west. Our guide knew her stuff, but listening to the same voice for... More

My husband and I took the "Crown of the Continent" Red Bus Tour, leaving from the KOA Campground at West Glacier. We decided to take this tour on the first day of our 6 days at Glacier, in order to get an overview of the park. This was the way to go and find out about the park, trail locations,... More

This tour keeps you from having to drive the scary road! Even in August, the early morning was freezing outside and we had to use the blankets in the bus. Bring more than a sweatshirt and don't forget a hat! The afternoon was hot, but we were very glad we brought jackets to remove as the temps rose. By taking... More

Our driver picked us up in the Red bus at Glacier Park Lodge at 8:45 in the morning. We headed out on an 8 hour adventure with our grands aged 9 and 11. We saw glorious scenery of mountains, glaciers, forests, and lakes. We also saw mountain goats, big horn sheep, ground squirrels, birds, and a condor. We had a... More

Glen was our tour guide and he was fantastic! This is the best way to see the most things that Glacier has to offer. Incredibly comprehensive, INTERESTING (always a challenge to keep my attention) and absolutely phenomenal scenery. Lunch was delicious, too (above average menu options and a full bar if you are so inclined). Highly recommend going!

We took the day-long Mountain Majesty tour from West Glacier to Rising Sun. Our tour guide, Patrick, offered interesting commentary on history, geology, climate, wildlife, environmental issues, and more. We wouldn't have learned so much on our own. Wear layers on this trip, because it can be cool when you start and quite warm when you're finished. It was glorious... More

-What a great trip. We took the 8 hour "crown of the continent" tour. Words just can't describe the experience we had. Dress warm for the morning ride but be ready to shed some clothes later in the day. It is simply a great tour well worth the money.

We took the full tour from West Glacier to East Glacier, which of course included the return back. Our driver was extremely pleasant, knowledgeable, and a very safe driver. He was not overbearing in speech, rather provided details and inside information through the trip, with breaks of silence to allow to focus on the scenery. The buses are completely modernized...
