Tour guide was great. Everybody loved him. Stops for hiking, waterfalls, forest and mountains. Did not see top of mountain because clouds move in but that was okay.

Beautiful weather and amazing scenery! Our tour guide Wesley, was witty, entertaining, and full of all kinds of interesting facts and stories. He seemed to know all the best places to stop for photos. We had such a great time on this tour!

It was a really great trip and definitely worth doing. I was very glad I took this tour rather than trying to drive on my own. The driver Wesley was so knowledgeable and hilarious that it made for a great ride up. He knew dozens of great spots to stop and take beautiful pictures. The trip is all day and allows for probably a max of 2hrs of hiking at a single time. It might not be right for someone who's interested in doing serious hiking. But if you're like me and just wanted a scenic and informative ride and the opportunities to get off and see lots of the beauty the mountain offers than it was perfect.

This was one of the best tours we experienced during our trip to Seattle and Alaska.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

We loved this excursion. Even though we had a rainy day it made all the scenery look pristine. There were so many beautiful sights and we had plenty of time at each stop to absorb the beauty and wonder of the area. We would do it again and found it well worth the cost. Pick up and return to our hotel were a welcome addition as we were new to the area and did not have to stress about being somewhere unfamiliar. Thanks for a wonderful trip!

This as my first tour through Viator and it was perfect! The description of the tour was spot on and the instructions were easy to follow. The booking process was very simple. If you're looking for a fun tour while in Seattle, I absolutely recommend this one. Our tour guide, Chirs, was fantastic! Chris provided SO MUCH interesting information about the mountain and it was all in a very fun way. He was awesome! The tour itself was out of this world. It's a great way to explore the mountain with several stops along the way. Bring your camera, pack some snacks and get ready for breathtaking views and plenty of wilderness fun!

My wife and I had a great time on this tour. We especially enjoyed our time with our guide, Wes Hector, who was both funny and informative. I would very much recommend this tour to anyone visiting Seattle for a few days. It was the highlight of our trip. We were picked up at our hotel and then transferred to the bus driven by Wes. The tour takes a whole day but it is time well spent.
