  • Great trip. Mount Rainier was beautiful.

  • Great trip. Mount Rainier was beautiful.

  • I love this mountain. The tour guide was not informative but the splendor of being at the foot site of such a majestic place lives you breathless

  • The guide, Joe, is the best! He knew the best places and had lots of background information.

  • Loved the trip! Joe was an awesome guide. He was very funny, caring and sweet the entire time. I really had a great trip there and the winter wonderland in Mt. Rainier was magical. Thank you!

  • The tour guide was amazing. Mt Rainier is just gorgeous and although we had forest fire smoke in the area, it was still a great day.

  • Fabulous day - once in a lifetime tour.

  • The trip to mount rainier was great. Joel was a great guide. He made sure we saw it all. Waterfalls, lakes, wildlife old growth trees. he was happy to be photographer and tour guide. Bus was comfortable and ride nice. Its a long day and there are some small hikes but worth it.

  • Taking this tour was definitely a good experience! The driver/ tour guide was a courteous nice gentleman who had a few stories along the way to entertain us. It takes about 4 hours to reach Mt. Rainier. Once you reach there , you can chose a trail that he recommends that you can cover in the few hours you have there. Depending on the weather and time , chose your trail and set forth on scenic hike. Soak in the scenes of the mighty mountain and its peak - truly making it worth the climb. if you wish to save your energy to hike and prefer not to drive, it's worth taking this tour.

  • As a nature lover, this tour for me was worth it. I wish I could have stayed longer and hiked but this tour provided me ideas on how to plan my own trip down to this park.
    The trip there was comfortable, we got to walk briefly and had given good amount of time taking pictures. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and gave us a good amount of time to walk around at certain places in the park.
    I recommend this tour to all the nature lovers out there.
