We took the Mt Ranier tour from Seattle, on a twelve seat mini-bus. The tour was advertised as lasting around ten hours, but because our driver/guide was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable, it lasted for twelve.
The guide's name was Joe, and he was full of interesting information about the Seattle area, including how to get up Seattle's steep hills without any effort, which he imparted to us on the journey to the mountain. (If you want to know how to get up the hills, take the tour, and ask him!) He was also very knowledgeable about the Mount Ranier National Park - I'm sure he knew as much about it as any of the Rangers, and probably more than some of them.
Mt Ranier and the surrounding mountains are very beautiful, and we were there on a glorious day. We saw deer and a black bear (which Joe encouraged to come out of a thicket into full view by giving a very realistic bear roar!)
We'd recommend this tour to anyone with a day to fill in Seattle
