    What to Expect
    This tour of Mt. Rainier National Park starts with hotel pickup from the downtown Seattle.

    Your first stop is at Longmire at the national park’s visitor center. Sit back and watch a 30-minute slideshow, and learn some of the park’s history. You can also snag some lunch here (own expense).

    Next, make your way inside the park, and admire its beauty as you first walk to Christine Falls and then further down the Nisqually River to the 188-foot-high (57-meter-high) Narada Falls. Lastly, stop at Paradise, and catch sight of its stunning meadows. Look up to see one of the Cascade Range’s and Washington’s tallest mountains, Mt. Rainier.

    Your tour ends with a ride back to the accommodations you were picked up from.

    A wonderful trip. The guide (Gary I think) was great, he showed us a lot of beautiful sites and stopped for us to take pictures. We even saw a marmot by the road and slowed down to take pictures.

    You will need snack money unless pack them before you leave and tip money. That’s it for cash or fees. It was a great tour. And our guide Andres was very knowledgeable. Hope this helps.

    Not strenuous at all on our tour. The bus stopped, we got off and looked at the sight, got back on. The furthest we walked was five minutes from the bus.

    You will have a chance to walk alone. When you get to the top, you will have about 90 minutes to hike on your own.
