The full day at Mt. Rainier was a great experience. We had ample time to explore the area around Paradise. We explored a short trail and the historic lodge, and had a light lunch. Our guide was knowledgeable and fun to be with. The other short stops provided views of the mountain and canyons from a number of angles. Wapiti Woolies was a nice afternoon break. Happily the weather cooperated. A very pleasant day.
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.
We had a very good time. The weather was disappointing but the forest/mountain was great. Chris, our guide, was funny and very informative. I give him an A+. Maybe next time nature will cooperate.
Very nice tour. Highly recommend. The right amount of walk for me, not to tired. The guide is super good too.
It was wonderful!!! It was a beautiful day. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Lots of history and background on everything! A day we will never forget!
We were picked up at our hotel on time. Our driver/tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and fun to travel with. The weather was perfect! We had time for short hikes to a waterfall and to a scenic vista as well as an optional 45" to one hour hike (for those who wanted to take it) at the visitor center. The lodge and the ranger station were nice places to visit for those who didn't want to hike. Everyone seemed to have a great time.
Very easy to set up; convenient; Very friendly and informative
Would recommend and use again
This tour exceeded my expectations in so many ways. The weather was perfect, the scenery breathtaking, and our guide, Brian, was quite knowledgeable, humorous, and good natured. This was my first Viator tour, and I was pleasantly surprised and impressed.
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!!
Great tour! Wonderful tour guide, gave great tips, recomondations. He had complete knowledge of Seattle and Mount Rainier!
Excellent stops for photo opportunities.
Wish we had a bit more time to spend at the Paradise stop.
The tour was as good or better than I expected. We enjoyed clear skies and the Tour Giide Liz was excellent.
Excellent guide with good sense of humor and very accommodating. Plenty of time to see pathways, waterfalls and shops. Appreciate the hotel pick-up and drop-off.
This tour was wonderful! Our guide, Tim, was extremely knowledgeable and made the trip very enjoyable. There were parts of the trip where he would take the group out to special spots like waterfalls, meadows and backdrops views of Mt. Rainier to let everyone take photos and give some background information. As you drive deeper into the National Park you have about 2 hours to wander the different trails on your own, which is great! I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who loves nature and wants to explore the beauty of Mt. Rainier. Definitely the highlight of my Seattle trip. Thank you Viator!!
Great guide. Interesting stops along the way. More than enough time at Mt. Rainer to hike a few of the shorter trails, get a snack and visit the lodge. All in all a great way to spend a day in Seattle
Guide was excellent.
Group should have been asked not to have side conversations while guide was talking. It is very distracting when people nearby are sharing their life stories while the guide is talking.
Excellent day trip. Will, our tour guide was loaded with interesting facts and trivia about Seattle and the small towns surrounding Mt. Rainier. The tour was extremely comfortable. Our group included young 20's to early 50's. We were told options for more or less strenuous hikes throughout the tour. The timing was perfect because we had a clear warm day and could see the top of Mt. Rainier perfectly as well as the blankets of wild flowers. If you are considering this trip, do it!
We were fortunate to have a "picture perfect" day. Lucinda was a fun and informative guide. Would recommend to anyone.
Totally amazing. I mean the driver's name is Chris and he is tall, funny and welcoming. Each destinations is amazing and the explanation along the whole trip is definitely one of the reasons you need to be on this trip.
We had a perfect day at Mt. Rainier. Tim our tour guide provided us wonderful facts about Mt Rainier and we stopped at numerous stops in the park. We had plenty of time for picture taking, hiking and lunch, and the weather could not have been more perfect!
