Customer Reviews

3 star rating: Worth doing June 2013

The guide was very knowledgable, but the mountian wasn't open. Seems like they could have told us this and not done the tour. Instead we hiked just around the base a little bit.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better December 2012

Not worth the money, high price and low value. The weather was terrible in early December, would not recommend going to Rainier at this time of year at all. The company did not know how much snow was there and did not advise guests to bring waterproof snow clothing, or provide this for guests.
