“Great tour to Mount Ranier”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

While in Seattle took a tour to Mt Ranier through Tours Northwest. Had a wonderful day. Weather was beautiful and our guide , Chris , was fantastic. He was very informative without being overbearing. They picked us up on time right from our hotel , made several scenic stops along the way for hikes and photo's and then we spent approx 2 hours at the vistor center in Paradise , which is right at the snowfield on the mountain. After the tour they took us right back to our hotel. All in all , it was a great day and would not hesitatwe to use Tours Northwest again.

“Seattle City Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

My husband and I along with our friends recently took the 3 hour tour of Seattle with Liz prior to our Alaska cruise. We had a great time. She was very informative and had a great personality. After the tour she dropped everyone off either at their hotel or if you wanted to be dropped off at the market or anywhere else, she would take you there. I would recommend this tour.

“Mt Rainer and Seattle City tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

My family and I went on both the Seattle city tour and the Mt. Rainer trip through this company. For both tours we had Chris as our bus driver and he was amazing. My family likes to joke around with people and Chris was a good sport about that as well as able to play off that as well as giving us a lot of background information about Seattle. The Seattle city tour was great because we got to see a lot of things in Seattle that we hadn't seen in previous visits as well as teaching us new things about the city's history. The Mt.Rainer trip was amazing because you get to see a lot of amazing views as well as learning the history and stories of the mountain. Both tours are well worth the time and money.

“Disappointing Seattle City Tour”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

We picked up a brochure at the Marriott Waterfront where we were staying. The brochure stated that we would be picked up and dropped off at our hotel. We were picked up there but were dropped off about 5 or 6 blocks away. Had we known this when we paid and added a generous tip, the tip would not have been generous. This was the 3 hour city tour. The driver spent about one third of the time showing us expensive residential areas. This is not what we wanted to see. In fact, I would resent tour buses coming by my house. The guide also stopped in front of one. What we wanted to see were landmark buildings, etc. We did a drive by of Pike's Place Market. I would not recommend this tour.

“Mt Rainier sun and snow”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014

The eleven hour tour to Mount Rainier was the highlight of our trip to Seattle. We enjoyed the short trails we were able to do and the sights were amazing especially Grove of the Patriachs, Christine Falls, Paradise Henry M Jackson Memorial visitor center, Paradise Inn and Longmire museum. Our tour in late May still had snow at Paradise and we had fun trying the snow shoes our driver provided. Luck was with us as it was a perfect sunny day in Mt Rainier. On the way back to Seattle the stop for huckleberry ice cream was delicious. My only complaint was the small bus provided for a bumpy ride even on the highways.
