My experience on this tour was great from beginning to end. Our tour guide, Will, couldn't have been friendlier. He was very informative with interesting information on Seattle and Mt. Rainier NP. Our trip was a bit delayed by a problem with one of the windows, and we had to spend extra time waiting at Paradise Inn for that to be resolved. Will brought out binoculars and a telescope so we could see the people summiting the mountain. As a thank you for our patience, he treated us all to ice cream at Wapit Woolies. Yes, I am now a fan of Huckeberry ice cream! Another nice touch to the tour was the option of buying lunch at Safeway instead of spending a lot of money at Paradise Inn. I thought the whole tour was excellent and very customer friendly. This is my 2nd tour with Viator and I have nothing but good things to say.

This trip was brilliant. The tour guide was helpful and full of information, not just about Mt Rainier but about Seattle and the surrounding suburbs. Brilliant photo opportunities and great little hikes. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wishes to see the beauty of Mt Rainier without the camping!!
