At first, the address of the meeting place and the information of the place in Japanese were different, so I could not participate in the tour, but he reschedules it on a different day for free (problem if there is no time to spare). The meeting place was a little difficult to understand, but I was able to participate in the reschedule tour. The weather was nice and I could see Mount Rainier all day and it was fun. It was good that the guide (Ron) had a lot of knowledge.

It was really great. We had a great time, the bus stopped more than enough times for bathroom breaks and the places we saw were amazing. I highly recommend this tour with this company. The bus was very comfortable with enormous windows, you could see in all directions and we had a really great group of travelers that day.

First of all, we had the worst weather that we could actually think of for this tour. Therefore, be sure to check beforehand, as the trip will definitely take place. But that is included in the booking. In general about the tour I can say that our guide KEN was fantastic. In good weather, it is definitely worth the long drive. With us it was cloudy, rainy and it snowed. So we had no prospect of anything. So unfortunately I couldn't see the volcano. But the team can't do anything about that and that's why I wouldn't rate the tour badly. KEN got the best out of it and showed us what was possible. Thanks a lot for this. We still had fun.
