What makes our tours most unique is that no two are the same! Our guides craft itineraries that reflect the best of what the Park has to offer that day, including group interests and dynamics.

Experience Mount Rainier's highlights on a day tailored to you. Our TripAdvisor "Hall of Fame" guides run the only day tours permitted to explore more than a mile from the park road as the National Park is ecologically important & delicate. The U.S. Park Service restricts other tour companies - our competitors offer "road tours." We're lovely & professional nature educators (not just bus drivers) that have dedicated our lives to artful travel.

Our all-inclusive small-group day trip is limited to just 10 travelers. Sleep in a little - we'll bring coffee, pastries, and tea. Don't waste daylight waiting in line at a busy lunch counter or concession stand - we'll bring a local, organic, family-style lunch. We’ll bring snacks, water, and sparkling water for the day. Don’t worry about a thing.

We were unable to go into the Park, due to the high water. Our guide Marti was great & my sympathetic about it.

The whole trip was amazing, so many beautiful views even during the winter. Some of the trails had ice but our tour guide was super prepared with hiking poles which were super helpful. We're already thinking of booking a tour sometime next summer!

We enjoyed all parts of trip, short hikes weren't too strenuous, tour guide Marty was very knowledgeable and helpful. All chosen destinations were nice but we liked the walk in the forest near the Silver Falls best. We were lucky that fog and clouds lifted for about 30 minutes, so we could see Mount Rainier. It was quit a memorable day!

Fantastic tour experience with Jake as our guide! The scenery was stunning and Jake was extremely knowledgeable and attentive the entire tour. This tour has a number of stops in the park with short hikes and I feel like we saw a lot of the park. It was a very overcast day and the clouds were covering Mt. Rainer. Jake was watchful and saw a small window where it came into view. He quickly found a place for us to stop and finally see the stunning peak! We really appreciated how much he worked to catch it! The gourmet lunch was delicious and we were offered plentiful snacks and drinks all day. This is a well organized tour, worth the price and I highly recommend it. Thanks, Jake, for a great time and that stunning view of Mt. Rainer!

Our tour guide Marty was fantastic. Since this was a hiking tour I would suggest people being told or understand that point when they book this tour. Most of our group would not or could not walk the trails which did limit the hiking experience.

Had a great time with our guide, Ben. We enjoyed a couple of short walks down to Box Canyon and the Grove of the Patriachs, along with lots of stops for pics, bathroom breaks, and anything else that caught our eye. The van was comfy, the included snacks/meals were nice and Ben even baked us bread for lunch. Overall lots of fun! Make sure to grab one of their apple streusel cookies at the end of the day for a brief moment of nirvana.

Mt Rainier was absolutely amazing! Our guide Jan was wonderful. She gave our group options of longer hikes or shorter ones to see more views. That was great because we had all ages on our tour and not everyone is able to do the same physically. We opted for smaller hikes so we could see more things. It was truly some of the most beautiful places I've ever seen! I am a tree lover and Twin Firs Trail was amazing. Mt Rainier was absolutely one of the most grandest things I've ever seen. Reflection Lake, breathtaking! That was only a few places we saw that day, I could go on and on!

Justin was wonderful and extremely knowledgeable. Kept checking what was going on in the park, like cloud cover and adjusted our tour in our best interest.

Our trip to Mt. Rainier with our guide Ben was fantastic. We were picked up promptly, had a fantastic picnic, and a phenomenal day! Ben was very conscious of what individuals wanted to see and learn. We got to see some beautiful sites and the wildlife was out in full force. There was even a surprise marriage proposal within our group. Highly recommend Ben and Evergreen Escapes.
