      Wow...did this trip a few weeks ago in September 2019 and it was AWESOME. If I could give it 6 stars out of 5 I would. The pre-tour communication was great and pick-up was punctual. Marcus was fantastic and very knowledgeable about the wildlife and geology (I am a geologist and could fact check him on the geology, and he got it right which was impressive!!!). The itinerary was tailored to the weather conditions to get the best out of the day, and there were also some unplanned photo opportunities that Marcus was happy to stop for (the kind of thing you don't get from big bus tours). The tour packed in all the highlights from Johnston Ridge to Ape cave and we saw the mighty Mt St Helens from all sides....it was the only tour where you get to experience all of those things in one day. Thank you very much for the day Marcus....I have wanted to see the mountain for many many years as a geologist, and the tour did not disappoint!!

        Calificación General: 10/10
