A wonderful tour! I very much enjoyed my day at Mt. Rainier. Our tour guide Rick was fantastic! He was knowledgeable and fun. There is a value in not needing to rent a car and having a tour guide take you to the best spots. This tour was the highlight of my first trip to Seattle.

They day we went to Mt. Rainier was gorgeous!! Charles was very knowledgeable about the area and was great at pointing out areas of interest, etc. We had enough time to enjoy each stop and, in fact, were able to work in a couple extra stops along the way. I loved seeing all the waterfalls!! While there is some walking to be done, it's not too strenuous. I highly recommend this trip. Although the weather can't be guaranteed, it is well worth the trip to this beautiful area.
