A bit late but better than never. My daughter and I did a Twilight tour in 2011 when we visited the US from Australia and not only did we do Forks but we saw so much more. The scenery in your beautiful state is breathtaking and we had a wonderful day. Highly recommended.

We did a wonderful Private Tour from Seattle to Portland/Oregon with Evergreen Escapes and loved it! Our guide Jeff was full of interesting information and made the journey via the famous volcano Mount St Helens a very interesting one. Fabulous views, great guide and travel in style in a Mercedes van, plus nice snacks and drinks to add that extra touch. We will be booking more tours with this company next time we travel to the US. Thanks again!

I went on three full day tours in a row: Mt St Helens, Mt Rainer, and Olympic National Park. Great hikes, great food, great company, and great guides. I love the small group format, and the gourmet lunches were yummy and beautifully presented. The guides--Shawna, Rachel and Natasha--are all naturalists and incredibly knowledgeable. Each went out of their way to take us to gorgeous spots that were off the beaten track. I can't believe how much we were able to do and see in just three days. And I got some AMAZING shots! I'm exhausted but very happy! Many thanks to each of you.

Incredible day. We went to Mt . hood on MLK weekend. Both of the ski resorts were Full because it was a gorgeous day! Jeff, our experienced magical tour guide, got us past the TWO security barriers and parked us directly in front of the lodge. The tour was perfect and I am looking forward to touring with them asap.
