Our guide was fun and fabulous. It was a superb way to see and taste Pike Place Market, even though it poured. To be expected in Seattle in February and fun for a pair of ladies from southern California who never see rain.
Patrick did a great job making this tour enjoyable, informative and entertaining. If you love food, or even if you don't, this is a wonderful way to learn about Pike Place Market and experience the market before the crowds gather.
LOVE IT. THANK YOU FOR EVERYTHING!!! LOVED THE PIKE PLACE EXPERIENCE
We had some time open while in Seattle and wanted to get the inside scoop on the Pike Place Market - and boy did we! We stopped at a biscuit shop that served MOST AWESOME biscuits, we came back later to buy more. We next went to a donut shop, where we tried raised donuts topped with maple and bacon. While we did not care for it donut amazing, toppings not our style, the others in the group enjoyed it. We then tried some smoked salmon at the fish tossing shop - also super fun to watch them! There were a few other food items we tried tea, cheese, fruit, etc., but I think my husband's favorite was the Country Dough shop, the Schechuan sp? Chicken Dough sandwich. It was AMAZING YUMMY! The seasoning was perfect, chicken was real meat and the dough was crispy soft.
The amount of walking was appropriate - there were hills/stairs, but that's usual for the market. We were not rushed nor super slow.
I would do this trip again just to get the medium size samples of food - I say medium because they were not bite-sized and they were not full-sized, just right. It was worth the fellowship, the information, the food, etc. I am very glad I did this - I was not disappointed at all!
Though a resident of the Seattle area since 1977, and a Pike Place Mkt visitor many times, I learned some market history, and about some excellent places to eat, which I will include when I bring visitors to the market in the future. The tour guide was quite knowledgeable and very friendly.
It was awesome... We got to try the most popular food from the best places at Pike Place... We didn't have to wait in line... Our tour guide was AWESOME!!! He was funny and very knowledgeable. I would recommend for everyone to do this tour... :
Enjoyed tour, tastings, and tour guide Warren. Went back to several of the stops after the tour and used our VIP card for the 10 percent discounts. Warren was knowledgeable and entertaining and provided us with interesting background information/facts about Pike Place Market.
Morning city tour was very good, we got to see many parts of city, parks, locks and houses. Lunch at Pike Place Market was good. Afternoon tour of Boeing assembly plant was fantastic.
Justin gave us the tour of Pike Place Market and he did a fabulous job. He was very knowledgeable of all the vendors and with his great sense of humor, made the tour fun and unforgettable. We highly recommend this tour for those first timers to the Market.
Don picked us up at our hotel with a comfortable Ford Van. He had spent his whole life in Seattle so he was able to share his knowledge and history of the many neighborhoods we visited. We loved our break at the chocolate factory, especially the sampling, which was encouraged. We were even able to stop at the ballet school where our friends grandson had come for advanced training. At the end of a great morning Don dropped us off for lunch at one of his favorite spots within easy walking distance of our hotel. We were so comfortable with the city after our tour that we ventured out in the afternoon to the Chihouly Garden and Exhibit fabulous under the Space Needle and took the monorail to near Pike Place for dinner at Etta's before ending our beautiful day in Seattle. Thank you Don for a great tour experience, Eileen, Bob, Marcia and Jack

Thoroughly enjoy the City Tour, Pike Place Market and Boeing Factory tour. Would have liked a bit more time in the Market and would have liked to have been able to take a few photos in the Boeing plant but rules will be rules. Overall, we enjoyed the bus tour and saw enough of Seattle to make us want to come back.
This was a very nice tour of Seattle. The bus driver was a very good narrator. We learned so much we did not know! We are very happy that we booked the tour. Pike Place market was quite an experience! Unfortunately, just as we were on our way to visit the Boeing Factory, the bus driver received a call informing him that Boeing had lost power due to unusually high winds and all visitor's tours were canceled. That was very disappointing but unfortunately could not be helped. We are still happy that we booked the excursion and the company refunded us the unused portion of our tour. Thank you Viator. We will use you again.
We were very happy with out tour of Pike Place Market. Got a lot of great samples of food and also learned a lot about the market and how it began, etc.
The tour was excellent from beginning to end, covering all the sights we wanted to see. Our driver was knowledgeable, friendly, and amusing. The Space Needle and Pike Place Market were highlights for us. We would recommend the tour to anyone who wants a good overview of Seattle attractions.
Get the most of Seattle in one day. The City Tour was excellent. Our young guide was very informative. Having never been to Seattle before, we gained a great insight to the people and city. Great sights and little tidbits of history. Pike Place market very interesting especially the salmon throwing fishmongers. Very busy. Boeing tour by different bus and tour guide was also great. It's hard to imagine how big the factory is if you've never been. We had a great day.
This was an excellent tour of Pike Place Market!! Our guide was fun and informative. The use of wireless headsets so that we could hear what he was saying at all times was a plus. We tasted food from a variety of sellers--the best Greek yogurt I have ever eaten, smoked salmon, donuts with maple glaze and bacon, gluten free pastries, spiced tea, cheese curds and Oprah's favorite mac and cheese, crumpets and last of all, chocolate candy. I would not hesitate to say that this tour exceeded my expectations!

Our guide, Brett, was fabulous! He was fun and engaging and despite the sweltering heat, we enjoyed every stop of the tour. It is the best way to learn about Pike Place Market. Whether you are visiting, new to town, or have lived here for many years, we found a wide variety on our tour with wide appreciation.
Our Tour of Pike Place Market was the highlight of our trip! The food was delicious and our guide was great!
It is nice to see Seattle in one day. The Spece needle and Pike Place Market are worth to visit and we also see some other places.
As a local the tour was fun and full of new facts about Seattle and the Market we love.
the Guide was the best....the walk was easy and best of all we saw a roof garden I didn't
know about. Take your time and see the Pike Place Market before you shop there...the inside
tips are great!
Our tour guide Woody was fantastic and made the tour fun. The tour itself was a great way to see Seattle, especially as it goes to the locks and other places, that would be harder to get to without a car.
The time at the pike place market was perfect and ample. I would have liked just a little more time at the Space needle though as it felt a little more rushed. So we were just able to go up and look but i would have loved to be able to take my time and be able to see what else there was aroound as there seemed to be a few other places to see like the gardens and the gates centre.
But overall, I would definately recommend this tour and it is a must if you want to see what Seattle has to offer.
This tour is such fun, informative and delicious! Brett was a wonderful leader walking us through a foodie perspective of Seattle and the Pike Place Market. It was some walking on inclines, but in general an easy excursion. Best of all it started and ended with dessert! Our favorite was an intro to Korean food. Thanks Brett and can't wait to try to Mac and Cheese!

This tour was just okay. I believe had we gotten a more interesting tour guide it would have helped, but our guide was not enthusiastic and his delivery of information came off as boring. If you are in Seattle for any amount of time, you will see Pike Place Market and the Space Needle on your own. Save your money! This was not worth it.
Great way to see the whole city in one day and learn about its history. Tour guide was fantastic: friendly, knowledgeable, and very good with staying on schedule. Spending two hours at Pike Place Market seemed long to us, but we definitely enjoyed the tour and are glad we did it!
This is a great way to experience Pike Place Market, especially if you are intimidated by the crowds. We sampled a variety of foods throughout as well as watched the famous fish mongers at their best.
