Bear!

Bear our tour guide/driver was excellent. I had booked an e-bus but we got a Hummer Jeep. I have a bad back and even with bringing my own seat cushion, the Hummer seats and all of the jostling around on bumpy roads really hurt my back to the point of excruciating pain.

An adventure of a lifetime !!!!

Great adventure. Thrilling, fun educational, scenic and very cold at the top. Bringing a sweatshirt is highly recommended. The guides/drivers are very experienced, knowledgeable, very capable of handling a large Hummer and extremely personable. Well worth the price. If you like adventurous tours, then this is a must. Don’t forget to generously tip your guide/driver.

Unique ride on newish electric 20 passenger bus (although website reads that it would be in a 50s era bus) with a bit too much needless laughter from driver Freddie who although knew his material and was a friendly fellow could have rested his voice every once in a while and let us enjoy the scenery. If you get nervous on steep slopes and winding roads...stay in town!

We were well pleased with the Skyline Drive tour. The driver/tour guide gave a good account of the history and the plants and animals of the area. We saw buffaloes, a island fox, and a fawn.

We have a two-year-old toddler, and this is the perfect expedition for the family. The antique bus didn't have A/C but it's fun and the air was cool enough. Our guide, Freddie, was informative and entertaining.
