Great Experience! Our tour guide was amazing
My son and I had a great experience during this trip. Everything from the van they picked up us, to the snacks, equipment, and lunch was high quality. Our guide was friendly, very attentive to your needs, and nice. The places we visit and the activities we did were also great. Overall a good experience. Highly recommend it

Best of Mount Rainier National Park from Seattle: All-Inclusive Small-Group Tour
This was a great outing. The snowshoeing was a new experience worth every minute. Our guide Meg was great. She tried to fit in as much as possible. Her driving was impeccable. Very conscious of the fact that she was responsible for people’s safety.

The tour was great and Lucas was really knowledgeable. He made the trip a blast and was even able to time it just right to where we were able to see the mountain clear of cloud coverage. We will we back over the summer and will be booking another trip.

We were the only ones on the tour as everyone cancelled due to weather! But we had a brilliant time. Ken was an amazing tour guide as well as being really friendly. Despite not seeing Mt. Rainier, we still saw some amazing views and appreciate NorthWest Tours still going ahead to make the most of our experience! Thank you. :)

Private Mt Rainier National Park Day Trip from Seattle
Great tour. Great views. Loved the hike. Just wish we could have done more for a $1,300 tour. Our guide was great. He gave us lots of space. Just maybe too much space.. We Had to get back on our own. We didn’t do or see anything special that we couldn’t have just seen our own. But it’s cool we saw some nice water. Thought We really did enjoy the whole experience! It was a lot of fun! Especially getting frisked by the sheriff. Would highly recommend this tour!!
