Had a wonderful day with Andreas guiding a mixed group of 10 of us through Mt Rainier National Park! Sky was clear blue and we could see the mountain perfectly. Had to adjust since traffic to Paradise was delayed 30 to 60 minutes and stopped for lunch by Box Canyon. Andreas was great with the perfect approach and personality to make us all feel at ease to enjoy the day. Could not have asked for more. And to top it off, we stopped for huckleberry ice cream...perfect!

Wonderful tour of Mt. Rainier. The road up was quite something but Lucinda handled it beautifully and we felt total confidence in her expert driving. She was exceedingly informative and very thoughtful of the passengers in letting us enjoy the ride. We have done several Viator tours and all have been exceptional.

Beautiful scenery with very informative commentary. The guide (Lucinda) provided so much information without overloading. She was thoughtful to the passengers needs and flexible enough to insure we all had a great time!
