Gray Line Worldwide operates local sightseeing tours, activities and travel packages around the world using trolley coaches, double-deckers and standard single deck coaches. It also offers charter services, airport transfers, and convention services.

Gray Line has a presence in over 700 locations, spanning six continents, and is the largest sightseeing company in the world. In 2004 its carriers handled some 25 million passengers.

The company was founded in 1910 by restaurateur Louis Bush, who refurbished a Mack Truck and offered tours of Washington, D.C. Gray Line has since grown into a global sightseeing network of local experts offering "one of a kind" itineraries in adventure, luxury and budget-friendly travel. The brand is currently managed from an office based in Denver, Colorado.
