  • This was one of the BEST tour's I've completed. The guide was fantastic and clearly knew his history. Aaron went out of his way to make the day enjoyable as well as informative even though the weather and fires in the area were determined to limit out views. The small tour allowed us to move much quicker and see much more versus a large tour. We were able to see both sides of the mountain in one day. It was a long day but would definitely take this tour again!! Great job Aaron. My only suggestions is maybe a few more stops for photo opportunities :o

  • Fantastic tour guide, very informative throughout the trip and despite the many stops and sites on this tour still went out of her way to make sure we squeezed in a few extra waterfalls and still had enough time at each location. wouod highly recommended.

  • Excellent tour. The morning on the south side of the mountain was fascinating. Walking down a Lava tube was so cool. Also seeing the pristine forest and previous lave flows set the scene to scale the devastation of the afternoon. It is difficult to get the scale of the eruption without seeing it, pictures really do not do Mt St Helens justice, you have to see it and get the dust in your shoes. Excellent guide Jordan Singh was able to take us to the interesting things point out many things that you would just miss on your own like the tree truck sticking out of the hill side upside down like it was thrown into the hill like a dart. Do this tour it is an absolute wow.
