Excellent tour guide in Chris. Would take this tour again! Great views and enough places to stop along the way!!
This tour was the most absolute highlight of our trip! My boyfriend and I enjoyed Paradise as it was the last stop at the top. We enjoyed every single moment of the tour and we couldn't have wanted it better without our tour guide Chris! He was the best tour guide that anyone could ask for! He also mentioned that we were the lucky ones during the tour because during that day, up in Paradise it was clear and the view was phenomenal and easy to see the other mountains and the cascades!
I would recommend this tour to anyone. So great, so fun, and the Huckleberry Ice Cream at the end hits the spot after a long tour up in Paradise.
Bryan was our tour guide and driver and he was very knowledgable. We could not see the mountain once we got to Paridise but once we went done the other side we had a great view of the mountain. This is a 10 hour tour and Bryan stopped for food and bathroom breaks.

exceptional trip with an excellent tour guide
Our trip was great! Our tour guide Chris was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable of the history and facts of the mountain, surrounding areas, weather patterns, and more. He showed us some great places to see and eat on the way up and back to Paradise. We would highly recommend this tour and Chris to anyone who wants to see and learn about Mt Rainier.
I was skeptical about all the 5 star ratings for this tour on the site but it definitely lived up to the reviews! Our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about... well everything! He told us about trees and other plants, animals, the mountaineering history, and even the history of several of the stops we took like Wapiti Woolies. Definitely worth the trip if you get the right weather for this.

Brian was an excellent tour guide. He strived to relay information about the area, and was very helpful. I usually don't review these trips but I give this day trip an A. We viewed mount Rainier in different positions, water falls with rainbows, beautiful landscapes, reflections, hiked and picnicked . A wonderful experience.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining! The actual sites are amazing! Totally worth the money if you can only buy one package for your Seattle trip this one is definitely the one to get!
The Mt. Rainer tour was the best tour we have taken. Lucinda was very informative, charming and helpful. When booking this tour, ask for Lucinda.
So glad I took this tour! It was my favorite part of my trip to Seattle!

My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. Brian, our tour guide, is fantastic. He is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We saw several waterfalls and we were able to take a few short hikes. Paradise was one of our favorite stops. This park is breathtaking and this tour truly highlights the best of it.
Our tour guide was really informative! She gave a us a lot of free time to hike and explore around. We went to Sunrise and we were speechless! Just amazing! Everyone should definitely take this tour!
Lucinda was our guide and she made the trip an exceptional excursion. She is so professional and wants the best for her customers. Her commentary was over the top exceptional. She got us up to Sunrise early enough that we were offered both strenuous and moderate hikes. The hikes were amazing and she got us there in time to see outstanding views and cloud formations around Mt. Rainier. She was trying to get us up there before a storm front moved in which was so nice of her. We also stopped two other places to hike which was much appreciated by everyone in the van. THANKS again for a great first time with ViaTour/NorthWest. Keep up the great work and give Lucinda a raise. From Deb and Denise, two sisters traveling together....p.s. she even was nice enough to drop us off at the end of the tour near The Roastery! Again, Lucinda is one of the BEST guides we have ever had and we both travel often. Can't say enough good things about our excursion to Mt. Rainier.
Great tour, worth every penny to see gorgeous scenery and learn about this beautiful national park. Rick was very knowledgeable, energetic, and really made the experience!
Wonderful tour with amazing sights and excellent commentary from our guide
Chris was a fabulous tour guide. Very knowledgeable and has a great sense of humor. He is passionate about his job! I was a great tour.
Chris was an awesome tour guide, and, in addition, provided unbelievably good weather! Thank you very much.
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!
Our tour guide, Chris, was phenomenal. He was informative, funny, in control of his tour. The stops we made were beautiful. I'd do this trip again and again.
