We took this tour with our, just turned teenager, daughter. She had a good time, enjoyed riding this bus with the top down, and liked learning about the area. The driver was able to share the history of the area we toured on the drive and had good knowledge of the wildlife and plants that we saw. We had a... More

Let me begin by saying the scenery is gorgeous! Unfortunately, we had a very boring, negative driver. He was very concerned with the rules of the car and making sure we didn't open/close the doors on our own. We took the all day tour which began at the Apgar Visitor's center. I would recommend doing a half day tour and... More

Leave the driving to someone else! The drivers are very knowledgeable and explain the history of the park and the geographical and geological features you see. They make the trip a lot of fun. In good weather, they put the top down and you can get a fantastic view of everything! They are good about stopping and pulling off the... More

We took the Western Alpine half day morning tour. Our guide was Russ and he was very good. He had a love of the park especially for the different trees. He stopped many times and let us do what they call "prairie dog" which is stand up and take pictures from our seat since the top was rolled back. We... More

There are many options for red bus tours departing on both the East and West sides of the park. The Big Sky Circle tour was the only tour originating from where we stayed in East Glacier and it was a full day tour leaving at 9 a.m. and returning at 5 p.m. Our drivers that day were Tom & Ben...

We did the half day Eastern tour. Caleb was our driver. He was very funny, personable, and knowledgeable. We are hikers so wanted our four days to be weighted in this area but also wanted to learn more about the area. He stopped just the right amount of times and was very responsive to guest questions. The half day tour... More

Took the tour from Apgar to Logan Pass, mostly because I had been told that the drivers really bring the park to life with lots of information and great stories. Apparently we got the driver who needs to retire. Even though he said this was only his second year in Glacier. He seemed more interested in I telling us about... More

We absolutely loved our red bus tour. We departed from the west side and journeyed up to Logan Pass. On our own, we drove all the way to the east side. The west side is definitely the prettiest so we were glad we only took the tour up to Logan Pass. Our tour guide, Debbie was great! She was very... More

This is a great way to view all the glaciers. Our tour guide was seasoned and offered excellent information. A good suggestion would be to wear a hat, sunglasses and bring a light jacket. If the weather is favorable they put the top up and the Sun comes down and can be quite hot.

These 1933 touring buses with open tops and expert guides are the way to go. Glenn, our guide, was knowledgeable and made an effort to know each of the 17 passengers by name. The history and the topography of the park was explained splendidly. This is an unbelievably beautiful and interesting park. A hidden jewel of the National Park system.
