This tour was wonderful! Our guide Ken shared a lot of information about Seattle and Mt. Rainier and the numerous little towns on the way there (such as Elbe or Ashford). We had several stops on our way during which we could do short hikes, enjoy the views, take pictures, and learn lots about the surrounding nature from Ken! Also, the first stop at a supermarket allowed us to get snacks/a lunch box since there were no restaurants open in Paradise - this was very convenient and a more economical option than bringing food from Seattle. On the way, we stopped at several scenic spots like Twin Firs, Longmire, and Christine Falls, before making our way to Paradise. There, we had a longer stop during which we could hike further up towards Myrtle Falls and/or enjoy lunch with a breathtaking view. You always also had the option to remain in the mini-bus, so everyone could decide as they preferred. I warmly recommend this tour!
