Great tour
, Nov 2021
What an amazing tour. Mark is a great tour guide. He gave us some history of the park, very accommodating with stops, taking pics and all. The park itself is amazing, with some great scenery. I'm glad I got out the city to do this.
Highly Recommend!!
, Nov 2021
I would definitely recommend this for anyone wanting a stress free way to see the incredible views of Mount Ranier National Park. It was cloudy and rainy for us, and some snow shortened our trip at the Paradise stop but it was still well worth it! Our tour guide was super friendly and knowledgeable (and a great photographer!).
I had a great time!

Tour was amazing! Lucinda was a great guide and made sure we got to see as much as we could. Had to do some minor steep hiking but well worth the views!
National Park Marvel!

We lucked out on the weather and clear skies on Thursday, 10/7/2021. Northwest Tours took us all day from Seattle w great guide Ken, and we all had a GREAT time! Saw a trio of bears even! Snow at summit of Mt Rainier so lovely. And we saw snow at other points as well, several waterfalls, wildflowers. Enchanting!

Ken as guide to our tour very knowledgeable and customer service oriented. Each steps he provide information and guidance about our tour sight seen was outstanding.
Great Day in Mt. Rainier National Park

Mark did a wonderful job! I didn’t know much about this area or Seattle and I left with a lot more knowledge. The scenery was absolutely stunning! Thank you Mark for the recommendations and for the way you make the last leg of the trip even more relaxing and meaningful!
