What our customers say about us


“Diann is an outstanding guide! Anyone can look at Mt. Rainier and appreciate it, but with Diann's hikes paired with her extensive knowledge of the history, plants, and wildlife, she transforms Mt. Rainier into a living story that you become a part of. Diann has such a passion for Mt. Rainier, that you cannot help but feel the same passion too. I highly recommend this tour to anyone! Thank you for the great tour and great pictures Diann! "

"I've lived in the NW for 30 years and never got up to Mt Rainier. I am so grateful to Diann for offering this way of touring. Its custom built for the people on the tour. Its not a big bus, its a van and you can have easy conversation on your drive up to the mountain. You can choose to hike or just sit on a rock or just sit at Paradise Park relaxing and looking at the mountain or sit by a stream or all of the above! Besides that Diann has extensive knowledge of the mountain and nature. I learned more fun facts in one day than I had in 30 years of hiking without a tour guide. Diann is easy going and has an uncanny sense of where the wildlife are and she has the spotting scope to prove it. We saw marmot, mountain goats and elk on my tour. I'm very impressed with the service, Diann and Tour Mt. Rainier offers but most of all I can't wait to get back and explore more of Rainier! I would highly recommend this tour. Its well worth the money..."

"My 17 year old son and I were in the Seattle /Tacoma area visiting colleges and decided to make some time to tour Mt. Rainer. We considered "just driving up there" and "see what we could see", but first I made a few calls to inquire about tours and was referred to Diann Sheldon, a Mt. Rainer Tour Guide. What a blessing that referral became for my son and I !!! We had one of the most amazing experiences that will be remembered for a lifetime.  My son enjoyed the tour provided by Diann as much as if not more than our "Arches National Park" visit in Moab, Utah - and that trip was for DAYS.  Diann had us for HOURS.  Her passion for and knowledge of the park is exceptional and we highly recommend her to anyone interested in truly experiencing the beauty of Mt. Rainier.  Please feel free to contact us directly if you have any questions about our experience."

"Carolyn, thank you very much for all of your efforts towards making our visit to Rainier fun and memorable. You were patient, thoughtful and knowledgable, and made our experience so very special.  From the ancient forest walk to the waterfall visit, we enjoyed every moment. It was lovely to see the mountain through your "lens"; your love for nature is infectious."
