The tour guide was very knowledgeable. He kept the trip interesting and fun. There were several stops on the way to Mt. Rainier and back so it broke up the trip.

Had a great time, saw lots, Ken our tour guide was great. Bus could use new springs, or after 80,000 miles maybe a new bus. The last half, out to Boeing was mostly just driving, but the Boeing tour guide was great, too.

Rainier. however the bus was not in good condition, it seemed to have no shock absorbers. every bump we went over sent us bouncing out of our seats. a few miles from paradise lodge we hit a bump that caused one of the windows to...

Booked trips to the Boeing Factory and to Mount Rainier National Park. The Boeing tour was extremely interesting and worthwhile and the tour to Mount Rainier should not be missed Both tours were excellent with helpful and knowledgeable drivers. We were picked up at the time stated and would definitely recommend Tours North West.

Nice tour. Well planned. Guide was friendly and very knowledgeable. Several stops for pictures but if you want to take pictures while touring sit on the right side of the bus!! No bathroom on board but adequate stops.

This was a half day tour of Seattle. There were four of us who had never been there before so we thought the half day tour would be a good overview of the city. It served our purpose quite well. The tour guide was very good. They picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel. I would recommend... More

This all day tour was breathtaking and spectacular. Our tour guide, Will, made the trip exceptionally special with his depth of knowledge of local history and personal stories of climbing Mt. Ranier himself. He also stopped at a local store that served huckleberry ice cream, which no one had experienced before, but became an instant favorite. A trip to Seattle... More

We recently went on their one day tour of Mt Rainier and our driver/guide was named Lucinda. First, her most important job was getting us all back safely. She was a great , cautious driver. As we were leaving Seattle to go to the mountain, it was raining and foggy. Lucinda decided to enter the park from, I believe, the... More

Boeing is about 30 miles north of Seattle so we booked Tours Northwest to take us there... They were excellent. Our driver Ken was very good... He talked on the way there about Seattle and details of what to expect at Boeing. Then heading back in Friday evening traffic, he used a better route back to save some time. My... More

We took the Mt Ranier tour with our bus driver, Dan. Very friendly and knowledgeable about everything from the volcano to plants, animals and the cities we drove through. Mt Ranier is something that must be experienced to be appreciated. Pictures do it no justice. It was a great tour and an absolute must in you are in Seattle. The... More
