Mark was an excellent guide. The shuttle to bring us to the main bus was on time. It was an enjoyable day. We had a problem with the main bus but a substitute was brought right away. Problems with traffic? Mark got around that too. I am so happy I went. Other tour groups should take lessons from Northwest.

Chris was fantastic! He was so informative about Seattle background as well as Mount Rainer. The weather was perfect, no need for those umbrellas that Chris brought along. The mountain is so majestic that words and pictures cannot begin to do justice.

FANTASTIC! Chris, our tour guide, was extremley knowledgeable of the area and very professional. We stopped off at several spots to take photos and explore. Weather was fantastic and the cost of the trip is worth every penny!

AMAZING! Chris, guide, has a great personality...knowledgable and hilarious. Stops along the way let you see God's glory w/every view of Rainer and the forests. Hiking to see waterfalls and closer views of Rainer is worth every penny. Wild flowers in bloom early in season added to views. GREAT DAY!!
