I’ve never taken a guided tour before in the national parks but this tour was completely worth it! It was so nice having a knowledgeable guide that took the guess work out of my trip. I would highly recommended this tour to anyone that hasn’t been to Olympic !

Great tour. Daniel is very passionate about the area and a great guide. Beautiful part of the world. Highly recommend

This was a great way for my wife and I to see a lot of the Hoh Rain Forest and Rialto Beach without having to personally do 4+ hours of driving, or planning. Our tour guide, Daniel was knowledgeable and friendly, happy to field any question and provide a local’s guide to the park. A full day trip can be long but this was well balanced.

The Olympic Hiking Co. day tours are an easy way for any solo traveler or group to experience the magic of Olympic National Park. We went to beautiful places, and the guide, Eric, did all the driving. He was a safe and trustworthy driver and hiking guide, as well as being a knowledgeable naturalist. At the beginning, he asked each person what we wanted to get out of the experience, which helped him make sure our goals for the trip were met. I went on two day trips, covering the Hoh Rainforest, Rialto Beach, Sol Duc Falls, Lake Crescent, and Hurricane Ridge. Both days were wonderful, and I'd do it the same way if I had to start over. I learned a lot about the park and its surroundings that I wouldn't have picked up if I'd gone on my own. I would have been comfortable on this trip as a solo traveler. The van has a lot of headroom and tall windows so you can enjoy the scenery, and the guide led good conversations in the van so that the travel was pleasant.

The tour guy was awesome and very knowledgeable about the area , Flora and fauna . Also he made a quick stop in Forks for taking pictures in Bellas’s truck, if you are a twilight fun. I had a great time .

This tour is so so so worth it! Was a bit scared to go solo but ended up having great conversations with our small group. Our guide was super nice, fun and full of knowledge. Rialto Beach was such a nice surprise! As for the Hoh forest, it was absolutely unreal. I didn't want to leave! Bonus points for all the little photo stops we did with Twilight-related signs and points of interest around Forks :)

We had limited time in Port Angeles and thought a guided tour would be the best option. We couldn't have chosen better! Our guide, Oscar, is a native of the area, and very knowledgeable. He is also made sure we had a lot of fun. Since it was a private tour, Oscar tailored it to what we wanted to see. The mild rain we had only added to the experience. The Rain Forest is incredible and a must see if you are in the Olympic Peninsula. Be aware of the time of the year and the forecast --make sure you wear appropriate hiking gear as there were a number of muddy places on the trail, and we climbed over a few wet trees. Oscar was very safety conscience, and made sure we were able to navigate over and around any obstacles. The only disappointment was that the road to Rialto Beach was closed, and we didn't get down there. We did go to First Beach instead, and got some incredible stormy ocean photos. Oscar also recommended other places to hike that are accessible from Port Angeles. I would highly recommend the Olympic Hiking Co to anyone interested in hiking in the Olympic Nat'l Forest.

It was a perfect tour and the stops were great with hiking and great learning and photo opportunities. The weather was perfect, sunny and clear, more than we could ask for. Our tour guide Eric was amazing - super knowledgeable, friendly, initiating discussions, pointing out details and answering questions! Olympic Touring Co’s small group size and transportation were perfect for the amazing Hoh Rain Forest and Rialto Beach tour.
