About
With massive glaciers, powerful waterfalls, and alpine meadows, Mount Rainier National Park is among one of Washington's most spectacular reserves, but it can be hard to get to, especially in heavy traffic. Visiting the active volcano on a guided tour lets you focus on the views while your guide takes on the hassle of driving. Plus your guide knows some of the best stops to make at some of the most beautiful places in the park.

Oct. 2021 • Solo
Our tour guide Lucas was wonderful, attentive, knowledgeable, patient, and shared a huge amount of interesting knowledge. We saw multiple beautiful spots and love that there was a bit of hiking at a few of them. The scenery was stunning! Be aware he said you may not get to see the mountain at all. It’s a bummer to waste time stopping to get food and that would be my only recommendation is to offer it, even with an extra cost.

Thank you for a great review for Lucas. We also appreciate your feedback. As much as we would love to offer food it's just too difficult with so many people having food restrictions and allergies. It's better for guests to have the opportunity to either bring food with or select their own food options at the store. This stop is also recommended to use the restrooms, grab coffee, or any last minute items you may have forgotten. We do try and fit everyone's needs at this one stop.

Gorgeous View
This was such a fun trip! My wife and I were very hesitant to book a hiking tour because we weren't sure it would be worth it since my wife has some mild mobility issues. Our tour guide was very helpful in letting us know which trails were more difficult than others so we could make an informed decision about which route to take. This tour had such great sights to see and photo ops, and would still be worth it even if you decided you didn't want to hike at all. Our tour guide (John) was very knowledgeable and you could tell that he has spent a lot of time in the area we visited. If we're ever back in Seattle, we'll definitely book another of these!

Cold Mountain
Joe Pritchard was our tour guide and he was welcoming and engaging. We did everything the tour described and it was a great time. We were given enough time to hike the area and take great pictures. They can’t control the weather and visibility and we couldn’t get great views of Mt. Rainier, but Joe was very good about stopping the van when visibility of the mountain cleared up. He was also very good about stopping when we caught glimpses of local wildlife (like deers). It gets very cold so bring warm clothes and shoes. Would recommend and do again in the spring!

Amazing tour!
Lucas was such a fun tour guide! He was humorous, witty, knowledgeable and flexible! We made many stops, seeing the best of the park along the way. The hiking and views were incredible. If you didn’t want to hike he gave options for walks and shops.

Great tour and a good time
Had a great time at Mt Rainier. Luckily it was a very clear day, The tour guide said that it’s a 20 percent chance it’s totally clear like it was.

Lucas, the tour guide , was very friendly and a great sense of humor. Even everyone on the bus was taken part with his sense of humor. He made more stops then he said he normally does because the views were outstanding

Perfect day for a trip to Mt Ranier!
Sep. 2021
This is a great tour to take. Our driver was great! He has a lot of experience on these tours and took us to the best spots for taking photos and venturing up the trails. He advised us on the best place to pick up food before we headed out on our climb. He told jokes and made us feel very comfortable.

Our guide was on time. In fact the clock in the hotel was a few minutes behind and he didn't seem to mind waiting for us to come down.

Everyone in my tour group took the virus seriously and kept their masks on when in the bus. We kept the windows open and I felt pretty safe from exposure.
