    Tour guide was the only bad part of the day
    , Jul. 2022
    The park was beautiful and lovely! But you could totally do this trip yourself without paying for this tour. The guide we had Ron, was too much. He wanted to take time out of the tour to teach about things that weren’t important and rush us when it came to enjoying the beauty of what we’re there for. Ron is definitely the reason I will never again take a group tour.
    We liked the hike stops...
    , Jul. 2022
    We liked the hike stops to see twin firs and waterfall en-route to final destination. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, pointing out interesting trees/plants.
    Fantastic day
    , Jul. 2022
    Perfect day! Spectacular sights. Our tour guide - Andreas - was top notch. He did a fantastic job showing us all the sights. We had time on our own to hike some as well as things to do as a group. All the history and facts he shared added so much color to the trip. We loved it and would take another tour with this company any time!
    icon Response from Host , Jul. 2022
    Hi Lori! Thanks for taking the time to leave such a blushing review. We will be sure to pass your message along to Andreas. We'd love to have you back any time!
    Fantastic tour!
    , Jul. 2022
    We really enjoyed this tour! We were blessed with gorgeous weather and Ken was organized and knowledgeable. He included plenty of bathroom breaks. I appreciated the walking sticks that he had as a couple of the short hikes were a challenge for my knees.
    The Guide Makes the Tour!
    , Jun. 2022
    Our guide, Andreas, was fabulous! Informative, enthusiastic… Well-timed stops at the most interesting and photogenic vistas in Mt. Rainier National Park.
    Happy on Mt Rainer
    , Jun. 2022
    We had the privilege of going on our tour with Ron. He was amazing and very knowledgeable. The tour was spectacular and we were able to see so many great things along the way. This tour would be a recommended must from us!

    Andreas was an excellent guide. Friendly, knowledgeable, and cared for his customers. We had sufficient food breaks and bathroom breaks. The tour was well-paced and the day was enjoyable. Thanks!
    Mt. Rainier Tour
    , Jun. 2022
    This was a two part experience. The tour with Tours Northwest was an excellent experience, our tour guide John was what you want in a tour guide; he was knowledgeable, personable, and flexible. Mt. Rainier park was enormous and eye opening. Definitely a place I plan to return in the future. On the negative side Viator as a booking agent was an absolute nightmare. Received numerous error messages and in trying to confirm my reservation was told that none existed and after 90 minutes in trying to get this resolved - finally gave up in frustration. Didn’t receive the confirmation until 12 hours prior to the tour and was able to cancel our alternate plans. I would never use Viator to book another tour.
    Absolutely wonderful day!
    , Jun. 2022
    Total of 11 fanily members went on this vacation. It was magical!!! So looking forward to all of our excursions...i know they'll be awesome !!!
    Rocks, snow, and trees!
    , Jun. 2022
    Loved the variety of scenery! From deep forest to rocky riverbeds, to snowy mountain lodge. Ron, our guide, was so invested in our experience. He wanted to maximize the time we had and made sure to give us options so all voices were heard. It was great to be surrounded by people from so many different parts of the world.
    Best tour I have ever had.
    , Jun. 2022
    The trip was perfect. Lucinda was explaining a lot of details. She managed the group very well. She made some variations to the tour so we could enjoy the trip more and we definitely did.

    Okay trip to Mt rainier
    , Jun. 2022
    Wish I could have more time to walk or enjoy the nature. I wish I could have a guide who is more interested in and passionate about telling about the tour……

    A Great Experience for Nature Lovers
    , Jun. 2022
    The tour was well organized and expertly timed so we could take in the most impressive stops under the most ideal conditions. Timing was was everything!
    Great tour, do recommend! Mtns, waterfalls, snow!
    , Jun. 2022
    Lucinda was a great tour guide. She kept us informed every step of the way about what we were about to see, when to expect upcoming bathrm breaks, checking in if we were comfortable temp-wise, etc., and made sure we could get food for ourselves. We had opportunities to see the mtn from various views, snow, the inns, and a beautiful waterfall. Only thing that could have been better was 5 more minutes at each stop!
    icon Response from Host , Jun. 2022
    Wow, Jennifer! Thanks for your excellent review of our Mt Rainier Tour - we think Lucinda is pretty great, too, and will be sure to pass your words along to her as well. Happy Travels!
    Great guide

    Driver was terrific- managed our tour stops based on expected changes in the weather- nailed it. Great trip - ride a bit long but worth it.

    Stress free sight seeing
    , Jun. 2022
    This was a stress free trip - I was hesitant coz its a little pricey but taking the stress out of driving from Seattle to Mt Rainier is worth it. The tour guide (sorry forget her name) was very knowledgeable about history of Mt Rainier and history itself. She took us to good places to take pictures and was very considerate to travelers by giving enough bathroom breaks. The stopover at Paradise was 40 mins, I think extra 30 mins would have been nice, we dis not get yo do anything else but eat lunch - we did not get to see around there, my sons were quite disappointed that we have to leave without going to the bunny hill. Otherwise its still good trip
