Awesome trip in Mt Rainier
This tour was well worth the cost. We had the opportunity to check out multiples mountains and waterfalls in the park. We were given ample opportunity to explore on our own, as well as with the group. Our tour guide, Mark, was knowledgeable and his enthusiasm was contagious! It was definitely a great trip!

Mount Rainier National Park Luxury Small-Group Day Tour with Lunch
We had such a wonderful time with Daniel. He was knowledgeable and showed such a passion for this area. The breakfast pastries and lunch were excellent as well as the beautiful setting just before Paradise. We could not have asked anymore of Daniel and would highly suggest Daniel and his company.

Great trip to Mt. Rainier. Our tour bus driver was knowledgeable and interesting. He stopped often to give us the opportunity to see the views along the way. The only challenge was the lack of leg room on the bus.

I couldn't go but, what I can say is that the people were super communicative and they tried to locate me but, unfortunately I was not able. Next time when I came back I will take the tour.

Best of Mount Rainier National Park from Seattle: All-Inclusive Small-Group Tour
I had visited Mt Rainier NP before but missed the two falls that we visited on the trip. They were awesome. We had a beautiful day, cloudless sky, got some great pictures of Mt Rainier and the falls. Our guide Karen was nice, had some interesting facts regarding the areas we visited.
