I joined the Olympic National Park tour with my 10-year-old son.
We had just a great time in this tour.
The guide Justin Explained everything we wanted to know.
His driving was great.
All the scenery was just beautiful.
They provide us a good lunch.
We enjoyed the company in our tour too.
Good environment, great car, and
nice tour guide.
I will definitely join this tour again.
Next time, Mt. Rainier?
We knew we could navigate the Seattle area ourselves. However, the mountains and surrounding areas were challenging and we really wanted to get a taste of the beautiful area! Our Viator tour was worth every penny!!
We had two ferry rides which allowed us to snap some great photos of the Seattle skyline. We snowshoed Hurricane Ridge which was my number one objective for our day. We also visited a waterfall and a wonderful beach. We saw a totem pole receiving its finishing touches. We had a great breakfast, a wonderful picnic lunch and some yummy snacks throughout the day. We happened upon an area where trees were being cleared. Very cool to see the trees being packed up and headed to their new life.
Our guide, Sean, was delightful. He was VERY knowledgeable and taught us much about the Olympic National Park and the Olympic National Forest. He also had some wonderful stories about the area and how names and places came to be.
Our photos from the day are amazing!
Absolutely, 100% recommend this tour to truly enjoy the mountains surrounding Seattle.
My husband and I throughly enjoyed our day in Olympic National Park with Emma as our tour guide. She is extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic.
JD, our tour guide, was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We squeezed a lot into along day. The other folks in our group were great--personable and willing to hike. The sights were incredible. And even when the ferry broke down and we had to wait over an hour for another one, everyone remained in good spirits
In spite of the smoke haze, which limited our view, our guide, Sean, made the day fun and exciting with his dramatic storytelling, in-depth knowledge of geological history of the area, as well as his overall personal charm and interpersonal skills.
What a wonderful way to spend the day! Our guide Andrew was knowledgeable and friendly. He spoke intelligently on the park, the local area, Native American history, geology, botany and geography. His easy manner coaxed all of the touring party of 8 to share our experiences locally and around the world. Lunch was wonderfully healthy and varied. Andrew's experience allowed him to adjust the day's itinerary as traffic and the weather made views available or routes too time consuming. I really enjoyed crossing the sound on the ferry. Because it was a clear day we had remarkable views of Mount Rainier, Baker and Olympus. The walks we took were not too strenuous or long. We climbed a hill for a great view, walked out to an overlook and a wandered through an old growth forest and out to a waterfall. The vehicle was large and comfortable, so glad I didn't have to drive those windy mountain roads myself.
Great trip. Our guide was Sean and took us on a great tour of the park, hitting 3 different spots. He is very knowledgeable.
This was an all-around good day. It was like spending the day with friends...there was one other guest besides myself and the tour guide. So definitely a small group. We snow shoed on Hurricane Ridge, saw the Madison Falls, Lake Crescent and the coast. And we got very adequate time at each place and stayed on schedule. Guide was great.. personable and knowledgeable.
Absolutely sensational tour - do not miss the chance to do this tour. We couldn't believe how beautiful the Park is and we also learned a lot along the way. Absolutely would recommend it!
I really enjoyed the tour. It was very homely atmosphere, the guide Martyn took a great care of ourselves. That gave really good vibe to the group and the whole members were very nice.
Great small tour and Marty, our guide, was great. He explained everything and he was very knowledgeable of the area.
Beautiful tour and our lunch was delicious! Our tour guide, Claire, really knew her stuff and was perfect in every way. It was like having an informed, local friend show you around.
Our tour guide Marty was great to all of us. Make sure NOT to step onto grasses in order to protect plants. It is a basic rule for all of those who intend to check out the park. I like the entire tour. It was wonderful.
Wonderful day with Claire. Food was awesome and no lack of snacks/drinks. The views were a little smoky. Learned a lot about Seattle and Washington. We had a nice group of people. I would highly recommend this trip.
What a great trip! Marty was our guide, he was a wealth of info on the area. He never tired of telling us about the trees, plants and the people native to the region. If you like the mountains-this is for you. We stopped several times for photo ops, snacks and water. The views were breathtaking even though we had somewhat limited visibility from the wildfires in B.C. Our lunch was well planned and healthy, plenty for all and we even had dessert! Because of the small group size, we were able to get to know everyone and it was really great. Don't think about it-just book it!!
Andrew was our guide and he was very knowledgeable and personable. He had plenty of information about the area and when we were in the rain forest the pace and his talk was excellent. The group was small enough to have individual attention. The vehicle was very comfortable. Highly recommend.
Enjoyed the personalized attention, with only 6 members on the tour. Knowledgeable guide answered all questions from the group. Loved the picnic lunch! Reco you sign up!
Jen, is a local educator and a phenomenal guide. Being a small group gives you a few more options with planning your trip. I spent most of my time with my ears glued to her every word. We hiked above the treeline and saw fantastic views. Jen gave us a history of the development and the Seattleites that helped to build this amazing community. We had an outdoor dinner together on the side of the mountains. She took us down to the river and falls. The foliage is amazing and the air is so clean. Thank you Jen. You have Opa'!
