Mt Rainier Day Tour from Seattle

Mt Rainier Day Tour from Seattle

This Mt Rainier day trip begins with a convenient hotel pickup in the downtown Seattle, SeaTac, Tukwila and Renton areas on a 24-passenger mini coach. Then prepare for a narrated, scenic drive to the foothills of Mt Rainier National Park.

Stop at Longmire, the visitor center at the southwest corner of the park, to explore their museum and National Park Inn. Purchase lunch at the world-renowned Whittaker School of Mountaineering and watch a 30-minute slide show, presented by a Mt Rainier guide.

Visit Christine Falls, with one of the signature views in Mt Rainier National Park (look for the bridge).

Then it’s back down the mountain to take a return trip, with a new view, to Seattle.

Chris was an awesome tour guide, and, in addition, provided unbelievably good weather! Thank you very much.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

A very early start but definitely worth it! We saw a lot of different places in the park, all with spectacular views of the mountain. There was an hour and a half in which we could choose from different hikes, depending on your speed and fitness, or just look at the visitors centre and talk to the rangers.
The driver/tour guide was one of the best parts of the day - he was hilarious it must be difficult to keep that up every day! but also very knowledgeable about the mountain and the surrounding area.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour to anyone. Thanks for a great day out!

This was probably one of the best guided tours I have ever been on. Our driver was a woman forgot her name!, and she was outstanding. Extremely knowledgeable, friendly and a good driver. We made a few extra stops along the way up to the mountain to see waterfalls, historic landmarks, rivers, etc... and was able to capture the entire beauty of Mt Rainier National Park. Thank you for an unforgettable experience that my family will remember forever!

Chris was our tour guide and he is super knowledgeable and highly humorous. He keeps all of us entertained and is very informative without being boring. He has good recommendations on which trails within Mt Rainier that we should take. Mt Rainier itself is very surreal for a city person like myself. The hiking part is tough but worth the sights. Be prepared for some cold weather, even in summer, and get ready for some hiking and workout in order for you to get to the places that are worth the views.

My husband and I had a wonderful time. The weather was superb and our guide, Wesley, was very knowledgable and funny. It was arranged so those who wanted to hike could, while those who were physicially unable to still had gorgeous views, amp,e photo opportunities and alternate activity choices museums, ranger talks, etc.
