Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Mt Rainier Day Tour from Seattle. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
We had a great tour. The bus was comfortable and just the right size. Our driver/guide was knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining. Due to weather we were not able to see Mt. Ranier all day and yet we still thought the tour was wonderful. We would eagerly take the tour again.
I highly recommend doing this tour if you are in Seattle.
The minivan has panoramic windows for better viewing.
The guide was very good and very funny, he presented a lot of useful facts about Seattle and the National Park.
Once you reach the National Park, you suddenly enter a different world, with tall trees, great views, waterfalls, and no habitations.
The minivan will climb up to the Paradise Visitor Center, where you have a lunch stop. Even in July, there is snow at this place. During the climb you will have have majestic views of other peaks in the mountain chain.
There are 2 more stops for short hikes, and a few photo stops.
They picked us up at our out-of-the-way B and B. Our guide, Chris, was informative and humorous. He gave us lots of fascinating information about Mt. Rainier. He let us know if we came back from each hike on time we could get in an extra site, a wonderful waterfall we had to hike down to. Everyone on the trip was friendly and on-time so we got the extra site in, without having to hurry too much on the other sites. One lady wearing a "boot" on one foot, was able to keep up. Wonderful day..
Excellent tour. Driver/Guide was very knowledgeable of area, accommodations were excellent. Highly recommend this tour. Stopped on numerous occasions for photo ops, great tips from the driver about what and where to look.
The tour guide was great: funny, educational, interesting. We made multiple stops to walk around and take pictures.
Overall, it was a great experience
Perfect!! It was the perfect combination of sight seeing, informative info and personal time to eat, drink. Our guide was amazing.
for me, the best part of the trip was my enjoyment of our drivers banter all day. I told him that I would have gone on that same trip to hear him even if there wasn't a mt. ranier involved. he was very articulate in his zeal for all things pertaining to our day, and was engaging with passengers at all our stops also.he was so accommodating, informative, yet mixed in some hilarity to give a great balance. I would like all drivers to be as great as he was. He maneuvered the bus like a seasoned veteran also. The mountain was socked in fog
but I didn't mind as much as I was anticipating hearing more from him. he did get us a nice view on our descent. great job wes......tell him this is Joe from Ohio
Every minute of it was worth it. The drive, the views were spectacular. To top it off, the wealth of knowledge our guide possessed and shared with us added more value to the whole trip. My kudos to our guide who was not only a wealth information but also came prepared to give each person a fabulous personal experience. Out guide, Lucinda, even had the patience to teach us how to use snow shoes. Coming from a place which does not get snow, this was a fabulous experience. Highly recommended and don't mind doing it again.
This really great. The driver was very entertaining and friendly. We had a great day and really enjoyed this tour. The scenery is AWESOME and the information was great and I learnt heaps. I recommend this to everyone.
Great tour with even the opportunity to snowshoe!
Only disappointment was that it wasn't a very clear day so we couldn't see the mountain in all its glory.
Our tour guide Will was outstanding. Knowledgeable and cared about people
Our trip was amazing. Our tour guide Wesley was awesome. Fun, funny and informative. We learned quite a lot. The views were incredible and we couldn't have asked for a better day!
