Amazing time, best tour guide
Gabriela_M, Aug 2022
This was by far one of the best tours I ever booked! Thanks to Ron, we had an amazing time! He is full of knowledge and he run the extra mile for us to drive us to incredible spots! Thank you, Ron, you are the best tour guide! We were also lucky because we had perfect weather conditions to see Mt. Rainier. The only feedback that I have for the tour organizers, is that they should create 2 options for the tour, one for active people and one for less active. We had 2 ladies in their 70s and they slowed us down a bit and afterwards they decided to wait in the car because it was a bit tiring for them. So my suggestion is that the tour company should mention the activity level or to create 2 versions of the tour. Other than that, it was amazing and I had an incredible time!

I wish I was here at mid-July to see more flower blossom, but it is still a fantastic trip after all.

Our guide Ken, was extremely knowledgeable and courteous. Favorite parts were visit to the lodge hotel and views from there and short hikes that were expertly narrated by Ken.

Lucinda was a great tour...
CecileAnne_S, Aug 2022
Lucinda was a great tour leader. She was patient and rolled with the punches (our van needed to be changed). We really appreciated all of the planned bathroom breaks and the time spent at Mt Rainier was a nice amount in order to get a good hike in!
Fantastic experience!
Olga_M, Aug 2022
Our tour guide's name was John. He made our experience absolutely amazing! The ride from Seattle to Mt. Rainer is about 2hrs, so John took us to a supermarket near the mountain to buy our snacks and lunch for the day. He had a cooler in the bus to keep our food cold throughout the day. When we arrived at Mt. Rainer, he took us to multiple incredible spots and trails and gave us ample time to see everything and take pictures. He also times one of the trails perfectly so we could see the rainbow by the waterfall! John gave us plenty of bathroom breaks and gave us a lot of information about the area and the park throughout our trip. He also gave passengers the option to stay on the bus if there was a trail they didn't want to do. At the end of our tour, he took us to an ice cream spot and highly recommended the huckleberry flavor. It was a hit! Overall, wonderful experience. We are glad we participated in this tour. Thanks, John!!!

Filiberto_R, Aug 2022
Everything was good, on time and well planned. Even the bathroom stops. Everything around Mount Rainier is amazingly beautiful. Andres, our tour guide, did an amazing job and I can say is one of the best tour guides I have seen in all the tours we have taken around the world!
Amazing tour!!!!
Sing_Y, Aug 2022
Our tour guide Mark is super awesome. It was very memorable for my family. Mark gave us tons of history and facts behind Mt. Rainier. We enjoyed the tour very much and we recommend anyone is visiting, it’s well worth your money.
A tour of a lifetime
Susan_B, Aug 2022
The scenery is breathtaking. From beginning to end my husband and I enjoyed everything. My suggestion is just be open for everything and do what you can. We had a wonderful day.
A great day trip!

Jonathan_F, Aug 2022
This is one of the most amazing places in the world, I ever seen. It’s so majestic ! The views are breathtaking.
When in Seattle definiert take time for this tour
Atila_C, Aug 2022
We were lucky to have a guide like Ron . Told us historically about how this became a national park , brought us to the most beautiful points of the park explaining about its formations geologically… we could never have done this tour like this on our own . Also we were in luck Mt Rainier was out in the sun in her glory !
Alyson_S, Aug 2022
Rob was a fantastic guide - so knowledgeable about the geology and nature of Mount Rainer. He looked after us very well. I would highly recommend this day tour - you will be amazed with what you see and learn. Thank you so much Rob for all that you taught us about Mount Rainer, her history and formation and for your wonderful stories.
Best booked experience
Ina_S, Aug 2022
Our tour guide Mark elicited positive energy throughout. This was a worthwhile experience! 9/10 rating! The only thing I would suggest and wish is a stop by at a restaurant as well but we did stop for some Huckleberry icecream and it was the BEST icecream I ever had.
Beautiful Day Trip
David_S, Aug 2022
Nice tour. Great tour guide (he was great, but I already forgot name). Lots of stops and photo ops. 90 minute stop at Paradise Inn perfect for quick hike up to amazing photo ops. Fair warning, the hikes up are pretty strenuous, but there are easier ones. Choose wisely. Very warm weekend, so the bus trip was kinda hot on way back home, but not so much to take away rating stars. For a full 10 hr trip to such an amazing place, I found it to be a really great value.
The magic of the mountain
Roger_I, Aug 2022
Our Guide ensured that the whole trip was very enjoyable and well paced. Walking in the deep forest with those beautiful huge old growth trees was magical. The mountain itself getting closer and bigger as we ascended further up into the park revealed its majesty.
Great trip. First time to Seattle
Katrina_C, Aug 2022
Great Trip! This was our first trip to Seattle and the scenery was Beautiful! Well worth the money. Ken was a great tour guide and driver.
