Harry was an excellent tour guide. He made out trip enjoyable and even though were on a timed tour it didn’t feel that way.

Such a great day! The communication from tour operator was prompt and clear as I needed to make my way to one of the pickup points (I am not staying in a hotel). Well organized from the moment I booked the trip. Lucas is very knowledgeable and fun guide and made the tour very interesting. It was a beautiful but a bit cold day, but the mountain views were amazing. We had plenty of photo ops on the way which I loved as I just got a new phone with excellent camera. Lots of history and stories about the villages on the way as well as info about Mount Rainier. We had 2 hours to go snow shoeing up to the mountain and that was plenty (it is hard work, and I am quite fit). The bus was comfortable, and everything went super smooth. I am so glad I did this day trip, well worth the money for sure. I come to Seattle often on a work trip but rarely have time to do anything touristy so this definitively crowned my visit this time!! Thank you, Lucas for the Fabulous day!

We made the decision to take the tour at the last minute. We were fortunate to have Harry as our guide. He was friendly, knowledgeable, and full of great information plus he knows all the sweet spots to get those awesome pictures. We had weather on our side with sunshine and blue skies which only enhanced our experience. We made to Paradise and Harry had snowshoes for us to use which was much appreciated. Take the tour it is worth it, and my 15-year-old even agrees. Thanks for the great day!

Cory made the day special for a group of all ladies and all abilities. The sun was out and Mt Rainier showed its glory for us. He also spoiled us with a bit of snow ice cream and lots of fun stops. I was a bit nervous to go as I’m not a hiker, but had so much fun. If you’re on the fence, do it!

This is my second time taking the Seattle to Mount Rainier tour. Lucas was our guide each year - excellent day trip! Lots of history and it's great to get away from the city for a little bit! Lucas is extremely knowledgeable about the area. Also, bus is comfortable and we made a decent amount of restroom stops so no one was ever uncomfortable throughout the trip!

Cory was knowledgeable and made the tour fun. We stopped at several locations to either take pictures or to hike a trail. It was definitely worth it. The views and hikes were beautiful. We did get lucky as it did snow a little bit. Overall it was an excellent tour and would recommend to all.

We had a great time. Cory was very pleasant, made sure everyone in group had fun. Plenty of photo ops. He took some great pictures of us too. It was snowing heavily but didn’t feel we missed any fun and had some adventure too ! He is an excellent and safe driver as well.

I have taken this tour to Mount Rainier from Seattle twice now, this year and last. I had such a great experience last year that I wanted to take my husband this year. I had always remembered our tour guide Lucas from last year and was hoping that we would get him again. Turns out we did! Also, no two tours are ever the same! Lucas judges the best tour experience based on the weather and conditions in the area. So this year was completely different from last year’s and I’m so grateful I got to explore other parts of Mount Rainier! I recommend this day trip + booking with Lucas!

Mt.Rainier was one of best trips that I experienced and I have to give the credit to our tour guide Lucas who made it more fun by more story telling and humorous. I will say if you're visiting Seattle make time to visit to Mt.Rainier and for sure you won't regret it.
