Take in spectacular views from Narada Falls, considered the most popular waterfall in Mt Rainier State Park and the aptly named Paradise, at 5,400 feet above sea level on the south slope, among others. This tour includes pickup and drop-off from select downtown Seattle and airport hotels.
  • Tour of Mt, Rainier, available year-round

This Mt Rainier day trip begins with a convenient hotel pickup in Seattle or near the SeaTac Airport. Then prepare for a narrated, scenic drive featuring Alder Lake Park and the town of Eatonville at the foothills of Mt Rainier.
Stop at Longmire, the visitor center at the southwest corner of the park, to explore their museum and National Park Inn. Visit Christine Falls, with one of the signature views in Mt Rainier National Park (look for the bridge). Then 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.
Then it’s off to the pinnacle event of the day: the view at Paradise, which is 5,400 feet above sea level. Purchase lunch here and take in the incredible view of Mt Rainier and the valley below. Be on the lookout for wildlife wandering around the mountain at any time. 
During the wintertime, choose from an optional snowshoe or sled adventure, if conditions allow. During the summertime, simply enjoy the scene at Reflection Lake, which provides one of the most iconic views of Mt Rainier. It’s absolutely breathtaking. Be sure to bring a camera.
Finally, visit the Henry M. Jackson Memorial Visitor Center at Paradise to learn more about the history of Mt Rainier, including a brief film about it. 
Then it’s back down the mountain to hit the road back to Seattle.

Joe is a great guide with funny sense of humour. With the tour, we discovered impressive winter trails, great scenery such as waterfalls, but also hiked in hidden spots. The bus is really well equipped, and we got provided with winter jackets, proper boots and gears that includes snowshoes

We had a great time on our day trip! We went in October and lucked out with a beautiful day! Our driver Joe was great very informative and knew all the spots to stop at. It was nice that they stopped on the way at a grocery store were we could pickup some food for the day. Bus was very comfortable and it was a nice ride. It is a LONG day tho so be prepared we were picked up at 7am and got dropped off around 730pm! If you have the time would highly recommend taking the time to go and see this beautiful mountain.

The Day Trip to Mt. Rainier was really great. The weather was pretty cloudy so we weren't able to see the mountain but our tour guide, Joe, definitely made it worth the trip. The waterfalls were awesome!!

This was an absolutely wonderful day. Mount Rainier park is beautiful, and there are so many amazing things to see, with outstanding photo opportunities. It is truly a stupendous place, so calm and relaxing from the big city. Hiking in the park is awesome! Our guide, Joe, was excellent. He clearly knew the park like the back of his hand, and was very attentive and humorous, keeping us laughing all day. The only suggestion I would have is for less time at the grocery store (25 minutes going up, another 25 going down) - i would much rather have had an extra 50 minutes to hike in the park!

Just found this link. I don't remember ever getting an email to rate. I remember this trip fondly, but I don't remember getting to do much of anything except seeing the mountain itself.

Joe, our tour guide made this beautiful trip. Joe was funny, knowledgeable. He truly cares for the health and welfare of the park itself, park rangers, and visitors.

Great Trip. Great Day. Early October visit, but the facilities in the Park were already closed for the season.

Compliments 1st - Joe The tour guide was great. He was a great historian of facts about Seattle and things to do and also about Mount Rainier. Great sense of humor and thoughtful by having cupcakes at the end. I was very disappointed in the seating situation if you sit on the back two rows of this 2 hour one way trip it’s very uncomfortable for an adult because no leg room and you can’t recline your seat also you sitting directly on top of the wheel. I’m 5’5 the guy next to me was taller and had to sit with knees in aisle. And so for that reason I wouldn’t recommend using this company again.

Small group tour with knowledgeable tour guild. Nice stops along the way, with plenty of bathroom breaks. Frequent scenic overlooks with short hikes available.
