Mt. Rainier is absolutely beautiful and a must see in Seattle, but it is busy. Taking this tour allowed us to enjoy the views and not worry about driving. Our tour guide, Lucinda, knew the best route, where to stop and at what time to go to the visitors center. She is passionate about the park and was very knowledgeable.

The trip was great. Terry was funny and informative and added his personal opinion which was really good for those of us that had never been there. There was enough stops that the bus ride did not get too onerous.

The tour is one of the best we've ever experienced. Tour guide Andreas is so above and beyond and I hope I got to spell his name right. 😁 We are so lucky to have him that day. The entire tour is so worth it. The stops at the scenic points are truly amazing. If we can only give it 100 stars out of 5. We will book TOURS NORTHWEST again.

This trip was a 'highlights of Mt. Rainier' kind of trip, and I understand that the route and vistas vary according to the weather and the season. The guide was highly informative, the amount of time out of the vehicle just about right, and the whole day restorative. And the weather was scrumptious, with clear skies and incredible views.
