81 year old mother and I attended this tour on 17 Sep 2017. This tour took us to Natada Falls (40 min stay) and Paradise point (3 hr stay). I enjoyed hiking on both places. 30 min hiking hour to Narada Falls and 1 hr 30 min hiking hour to Glacier Vista Point from Paradise point. My mother cannot hike with me. However, she also enjoyed spectacular views.
We attended this trip to Mount Rainier from Seattle in last week of April 2017. Mount Rainier was all covered with clouds and snow and 3+ hours that we spent on Paradise point turned out to be totally different
experience, a memorable one. Got to do hiking with snow shoes and captured some wonderful pictures.
Longwire Inn/Muesum, a waterfall and a another scenic point were 3 other stops we made. We didn't get to see Lake Cresent as it was snowing.
I can only imagine how wonderful this tour might be during summer days. No regrets though, visiting Mount Rainier in Winter, while snow is falling, was an experience I will never forget.
Our tour guide was Jake and he was quite friendly and helpful. Provided us enough time to enjoy all the points.
