Such a wonderful tour. Wonderful to get out of the city. Highly recommended. Wonderful and lovely guide. I had such a good, relaxing time.

Mt Ranier is beautiful, and the tour took us around the mountain, to see it from many viewpoints, and to see the waterfalls and rivers along its slopes. The day was very cloudy, and so it was shrouded in mist, and not good for photos. But the mists themselves were beautiful, and something you can't see in a photo.

Wonderful day trip to Mt Rainier. We stopped at a grocery store before arriving at the Park to stock up on snacks, drinks and lunch. A cooler was provided on the bus. Our driver, Lucinda, was informative and hands on, leading a hike through the Grove of the Patriarchs. I got so many wonderful photographs! Enjoyed the hike at the Visitors' Center and also loved the gift shop. The visit to the old lodge was also educational and fun. One of the highlights of my Seattle visit!
