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). Walk along the Nisqually River up to Narada Falls, considered the most popular waterfall in Mt Rainier State Park. It’s taller than Niagara Falls at 188 feet. And enjoy Paradise, famous for its beautiful views and wildflower meadows some 5,400 feet above sea level.

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

WOW!!! So much information and so many picture perfect views. Driver made the full day trip worthwhile. The mountain if a beautiful place to spend the day. Clean facilities and friendly park employees. The waterfalls, the summit, trails and more took my breath away. I would definitely recommend this tour. Wear layers of clothes because the temperature changes as the clouds come in and out.

Fantastic trip to Mt Rainier
Very outgoing, helpful guide, Adam I believe
The shuttle had an engine problem on the way down the mountain. Adam handled it very calmly.
He also ensured that the couple w stadium tickets were not late, due to the engine problem. He arranged an Uber--and paid for it-- for that couple.
We were very impressed

Great tour! Our driver, Chris was personable and funny. He gave us tons of info during the drive. We had s lot of great scenic stops and Chris was wonderful about taking pictures of everyone. Although rather day started out gray and drizzly, as we left, the clouds cleared some and Chris stopped to let us out for some great views and pics of Mt Rainier. The mountain is spectacular and definitely a must see. Would recommend this tour to anyone.

I loved this tour. So happy I made the decision to take it. I was traveling alone, but my tour guide Chris and the rest of the group made the experience awesome. We stopped at beautiful lookouts on the way to Paradise, and did some short hikes along the way as well. Highly recommend Chris and tour!!

We were picked up promptly from our mid-town hotel by driver/guide Wesley. He kept us laughing and learning throughout the day lng trip to Mt. Rainer. The day was great, with opportunities for photos at every stop. We had a great time, and Wesley was amazing.

Great tour and friendly tour guide. This was my first visit to Seattle and I didn't have private transportation. I was picked up on time at the designated location around the corner from my hostel. The weather wasn't that great in the morning so we encountered a lot of cloud coverage at sites that are normally beautiful. We were still able to visit some beautiful locations as the day went on so I was very pleased. There are many opportunities to stop and take photos. Basically this trip gave me an idea of where I want to hike the next time I return to Seattle.
