Excellent. Amy went above...

Excellent. Amy went above and beyond to make our trip an adventure to remember. Waterfalls, hikes and lots of information on wildlife and mushrooms too. Good day - great company.
Definitely a tour you don't want to miss!

The tour was worth it! Our tour guide Mark made sure we got to see all the sites at Mt Rainier and we also had 2 hours of free time to hike. We got to hike up to Glacier Vista and loved it. We took in lots of waterfalls as well. Highly recommend this tour.
Excellent day trip to the mountains
Marselina_L, Sep 2023
Mark was an amazing tour guide! All of his stories, tidbits and facts made the trip even more awesome. The scenery at Mt. Rainier is absolutely stunning. I liked that there was a group and solo part of the trip.
Great one day tour to Reiner.

The tour guide Ken was awesome. He’s knowledgeable. The tour bus is spacious and the program is just perfect.
An absolute must-do tour - HIGHLY recommend!
Kerri_P, Sep 2023
The tour and our tour guide (Lucinda) were absolutely AMAZING! It is a long day (6:35 am pickup-5:30pm drop off) - but broken up by plenty of stops to catch different views/photo ops, as well as restroom/food. The stop at the grocery store on the way up is crucial - load up on lunch at the deli (for later), snacks, and drinks for the day. We had almost 2 hours to do actual hiking, which was great! It was unseasonably warm and sunny. Lucinda provided the perfect level of narration/history, she kept our tour group of 20 people in check and she communicated expectations really well! I would highly recommend this tour if you're in the area - it was a really great way to explore the mountain and not have to worry about navigating, parking, etc.....

Ron was an exceptional driver and guide. The information he provided was invaluable - could never learn as much from a book. His photo op choices “Ron stops” were such a wonderful gift - memories to live on ! Thank you and please commend Ron on his contagious passion to learn more about Mt Ranier .

Our guide Ken was very knowledgeable about the entire trip. Gave us great history of Seattle and Mt. Rainier. He was patient, personable, and funny as well as informative. Made new friends on this experience and saw the most amazing views of the waterfalls and Mr. Rainier. Highly recommend!
Unforgettable experience from start to finish
Dessy_D, Sep 2023
Incredible day spent hiking at stunning places thanks to our amazing tour guide, Ranger Ron! He knows the park inside out, took us to the most beautiful places and always gave us interesting facts about Mt Rainier and it’s stunning nature. He went out of his way to create a buzzing and friendly atmosphere throughout the tour and had prepared photos to visualise the geological and zoological features of Mt Rainier, and also handed out cedar wood samples and hiking gear for us to see and hold during the journey, which gave incredible context to the stories and made the it a truly memorable experience! Ron also knew gorgeous photo spots and helped everyone take beautiful pictures. We would 100% recommend this tour to anyone looking for a high-energy, educational and fun experience with lots of hiking and stunning sights from start to finish! Thank you Ron!

Rebecca_B, Sep 2023
My family had an amazing time on the Mt Rainier trip. Andreas did a tremendous job as our guide. He helped us explore trails to beautiful waterfalls and gorgeous lakes and canyons. We had lots of time to explore the trails at Paradise also. He was also extremely informative about the plants and animals of the park. I had been to the mountain several times before but this trip was the best!
Family vacation

This tour was amazing! As a solo traveler this was a great way to see many points of Mt. Rainier that I otherwise may not have known about. John was a great guide, super knowledgable, funny, and personable. We had free time at each of the stops to roam freely and he gave us tips on what to do. We even stopped for ice cream on the way back, Huckleberry is the way to go! Overall it was an amazing experience thanks to John and the beauty of Mt. Rainier. If you're thinking about it just do it!
