First time in Seattle, and we like to know local flavors and get a "lay of the land". Really easy to book and communicate with Cheryl. Scott was fantastic, affable, knowledgeable and totally flexible with what we wanted to experience from the tour. He gave a lot of insider tips and insight to the history, character of Whidbey and surrounding area. Was really cool to learn about the natural landscape as well. Definitely experience the mussels in Coupville! Never had fresh caught, straight from the water to the plate mussels before. Happy that we got to experience an aspect of the greater Seattle area that's not just about downtown!

Cheryl runs a FANTASTIC operation. I had a payment issue come up (long story) but she was extremely accomodating and bent over backwards to make it work. I had been eyeing this tour for a while but there was still a decent amount of snow in the beginning of May but she kept her ear to the ground just for me to let me know it was doable. My guide was Janet and she was an absolute delight. She filled the trip with so many fun facts and of course knew her way around the area and route so I didn't have to mess with it. I was picked up in an SUV with plenty of healthy snacks (which was great as I had skipped breakfast) as well as bottles of water. Before we made our way up we stopped at a small cafe and picked up some sandwiches and had a lovely picnic up at the top with the STUNNING backdrop of the mountains behind us. Thankfully Janet knew the routes well enough that even with a decent amount of snow she still had her bearings and knew were was safe to walk and took a few pics of me. If I'm in the area again and want to see the parks/outdoors I'm using her, highly recommend.

On a Sunday afternoon, I asked Cheryl to take me on a tour the next day. I was traveling alone, and she kindly agreed to take me on the Leavenworth Alpine Village and Snoqualmie Falls Tour. Cheryl is a well-informed and helpful tour guide. She displayed a wealth of interesting historical and cultural knowledge as we drove through beautiful mountain passes. Along the way, we made several stops to observe forest ecosystems and waterfalls. Cheryl takes advantage of nature when it presents itself - even if it’s not a part of the tour. On our drive, she spotted a herd of elk, stopped on the side of the road, and we took a moment to take in the animals’ beauty and grace. She even took me to the place where portions of Harry & the Henderson’s was filmed. Cheryl was very patient and accommodating. She took several pictures of me at various sites since I was traveling alone. Cheryl pointed out the best stores in Leavenworth and suggested a delightful place for lunch. I was a bit nervous since it would be just 2 of us together for the entire day, but that was needless worry. Cheryl welcomed me from the moment she picked me up, and by the end of the day, we felt like old friends. As a client and a business PhD, I highly recommend Cheryl’s Northwest Tours. She is doing all the right things to ensure that her business provides excellent customer service and creates immersive experiences for every guest.

We've travel to other countries and the U.S., always found the trips to be more enjoyable with a local driver/guide. Large groups on tour busses suck. With Cheryl, we were treated like family, (the ones she loves). I highly recommend booking her services which will lead to a wonderful, memorable experience. We still keep in touch with her 3 years later from our home in Florida.

“Janet” was a gem during this tour. She was insightful, informative, witty, and a pure joy to share our adventure with on this trip. She was knowledgeable and able answer questions on Seattle’s history of Native Americans, geology, and how to differentiate between the pine trees. Our journey took us through spectacular views of the Cascade Mountains. We ascended Stevens Pass, drove beside the Skykomish River, with beautiful views of Bridal Veil Falls and Deception Falls. On arrival in the Bavarian town, we had free time to explore its shops and places to eat. We even visited the Nutcracker museum, which houses a unique and diverse nutcracker from all over the world. We then stopped at Snoqualmie Falls. Absolutely beautiful. A must-see falls. On our way home, we stopped in Index, along Stevens Pass where Harry and the Hendersons was filmed at the Expresso Chalet. Who does not want their picture taken with Bigfoot?! Our well-planned trip provided guidance and insights that led us to places we would never have discovered on our own. This was a fantastic trip with memories to last. Cheryl’s Northwest tours exceed our expectations we even added additional trips. They were amenable to our needs and wants. We continued to use her services throughout our vacation for one of a kind personal experience. We will use them again in the future. She is wonderful!
