    Definitely worth the trip for the drive through the gorgeous Cascade mountains with breathtaking views of the snow clad peaks, and if you are lucky, some bald eagles and elk. Cheryl was an amazing guide and a great driver! Leavenworth itself is a small, sleepy town that can be walked through in less than half an hour. So focus on the journey itself!

    The trip to Leavenworth was so, so amazing. The scenery on the highway was beautiful with all the greenery and majestic trees and waterfalls. It was beyond anything we expected, We were glad we encountered scenery as beautiful as this. The city of Leavenworth was unforgettable. The shops, the restaurants, and the German ambiance elevated the beauty of the city. We were truly impressed with Cheryl and her ability to guide us throughout our wonderful adventure.

    Tour operator - Cheryl's Northwest Tours. 9 hour tour, included stops at waterfalls on the way to Leavenworth. Town itself is very picturesque, makes you feel like you are in Germany. Cheryl (tour owner) was incredibly accommodating in meeting our needs to make the tour happen, Carol the van operator was pleasant, did a good job narrating, and showing us points of interest around town.

    This was an amazing tour of the waterfalls and the Cascade Mountains as well as the beautiful, quaint town of Leavenworth. Cheryl, our tour guide was fantastic. She is warm, friendly and puts you right at ease the moment you meet her. She is so knowledgeable about the surrounding area and has some interesting stories regarding the region. You never feel rushed at all, but instead Cheryl allows you to take the time you need to take photos and just take in the magnificent beauty of all the places she takes you to see. I would highly recommend this tour if you are visiting Seattle.

    Cheryl was a great informed tour guide plus a good safe driver. The Cascade mountain tour was awesome. It began with Bridal Veil Falls, were sasquatch lives .Next was Stevens Pass Resort, nice ski lodge. Now getting to about 4000 feet elevation saw mining towns and holes. Headed to Leavenworth had a wonderful lunch of brisket burgers and fries. It was so tender. We were to tired to shop. Headed for Deception Falls!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh so fantastic the woods and the hike through the falls was amazing. All worn out time to stop at Snaqualmie Falls. Beautiful but no more hiking. Cheryl told us about the Skykomish and Snowkomish Indians and the trees of Washington State. Hemlock, western red ceder and Douglas fir. We stopped along the road to Seattle and got some cherries! People in the airport wanted to know where did I get them. since their not in the grocery just yet. I can't express how much we enjoyed this tour.
    Thanks again Cheryl.
