A generally enjoyable day with a great guide.
My minor quibbles would be that perhaps there was too much driving and not enough stopping and sightseeing, and that there was too much time at the Pike Place Market. Other than these minor issues it was fine.
We were so lucky to have such a great and knowledgeable tour guide. The tour covered so much of what we were looking for in the tour. We loved the Pike Place Market. It would take a whole day to explore all that it has to offer. The Space needle provided such wonderful views of Seattle. Because of this tour we were able to be prioritized and not stand in a long line. Our guide would always pick us up at a convenient place without having to walk too far. He had a wonderful sense of humor and answered all the questions anyone asked. A job well done.

Great tour to see all the main attractions of Seattle when you're short on time. The view from the top of the Space Needle is amazing even on a dull day, and Pike Place Market allows for hours of shopping joy. Would recommend this tour to anyone.
Our guide was very knowledgeable about Seattle. There's a lot to see, but I think we hit most of the highlights. Besides the Space Needle and Pike Place Market, we stopped at the locks at Lake Washington, where we were able to watch some salmon swimming upstream. We also drove past the baseball and football stadiums, as well as some multi-million dollar homes near Magnolia Park.
This tour was great! I learned so much about the vendors at Pike Place and their passion for good, local food. The highlights of the tour were the clam chowder, crab cakes, and the doughnuts. Heck, I think everything was great! The tour is about two hours long but I had so much fun, I didn't even notice the time. Will come back!
There is not enough stars to tick for this tour, we were luck in that we were the only ones booked for the day and they have the rule not to cancel no matter what, so off we went driven around in comfort in a Mercedes Benz, the driver was just great, his name was Mario, the knowledge the guy had of Seattle was never ending, we had already been to Pike Place so we skipped that and he took us to places that the tour buses don't go, it was a day to remember, one thing we saw was the Freemont Troll a must see, but buses don't go there due to the narrow streets.
Brad was a fantastic tour guide! He was informative and funny too! We tried some fabulous food and learned quite a bit of history on Pike Place. Great fun and we are so glad we booked ths tour!
We really enjoyed this tour. Went to all the places you hear about in Seattle. We were not able to go to Lake Washington due to a bridge closure, so the guide took us to another lake. Ate on the water at Pike Place Market. Would recommend this tour, was worth the money.
Great tour and wonderful way to see the whole city. Picked up from hotel and chauffered around to all the sites including ticket for Space Needle. (Great views) Charles the tour guide was excellent and had great knowledge of the area. Pike Place was exceptionally crowded but great to see. Well worth doing!
I had lots of choices for my Saturday in Seattle (a co-worker lobbied hard for underground Seattle), but when I saw the word chocolate... Well who'd hike around a musty underground city when they could wander around in the sunshine eating chocolate? I had a great time. Downtown Seattle is so easily navigable that I had no trouble meeting up with the group. The the group was just the right size to keep organized and moving. The vendors who met with us were informative and professional. Their businesses were obviously well maintained. Their products were amazing. When I revisited several of the shops after the tour, everyone I spoke to was friendly and helpful. (Thanks for the tour map!). You might want to consider arming your guides with tasers. Those Pike Place tourists got mightly testy when we denied them our cheesecake and huddled up around our girl to protect her. Okay, we were protecting our cheesecake, but still... She, however handled the whole thing with aplomb and a smile. And speaking of our guide, Katie? I think, sorry, terrible about names was a lot of fun and full of information.

The stop at Pike Place was a complete waste of time in a very crowded milieu. The guide, Chris, was rude and unkempt and spent more time talking about himself than about what we were seeing. I will not book a tour with this local supplier ever again!
Great tour of Seattle. Our tour guide was Joe who was very acknowledgeable about Seattle. He gave us time to shop at Pike Place Market and take photos. He helped us with information concerning bus schedules so that we could come back to some of the places we visited. Joe even shared with us information about the evening firework display at Lake Union. It was truly an enjoyable day!
Excellent tour and gives some great perspective on Pike Place. Certainly recommended. Good for those who won't eat many of the samples of food tour.
Doing what: Historic Walking Tour of Pike Place Market
We used all of the tickets in the book. I would suggest combining Space Needle, Science Center, and EMP in one day; Pike Place Market, Aquarium, and Argosy Harbor Cruise in one day; and heading out to the Museum of Flight on a separate day. Good value and excellent attractions.
