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.
Leslie was wonderful! We totally enjoyed the colorful history of Pike Place. Our guide gave us a insiders view of how the market actually operates. The tour started with a doughnut and ended with a wonderful salmon burger. Bring your appetite and see all the market!

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.
Great first view of Seattle - a good way to get a taste of the city and decide what to explore in greater depth. Time flew during all our time with our guide, Lance. Not only did he keep it entertaining and informative, he constantly made sure we knew where we were, what we were doing and meeting points/times. Obviously, Pike Place Market deserves at least a few hours by itself if not days or weeks, but it was good the know what to look for. Lance also gave us different choices for us to be dropped off after the tour and suggestions for the rest of the trip. Great job!
Highly recommend this food and culture tour. Sasha was great! Well worth the time and money to be able to skip lines and get a taste of some of the best Pike Place has to offer.
Very much enjoyed the tour, Patrick was a great tour guide. Lots of interesting historical and cultural trivia along the way. Good sampling of some of the better eateries and food related shops in the Pike Place Market area. Next will will do one of their other tours.

Had a lot of fun and yummy treats. Our tour guide Mark was entertaining and very informative, he did have to keep others in the crowds not on our tour from trying to get some of our samples, very funny.
One draw back was we had a hard time finding the meeting spot, kind of our fault for not looking at the maps at Pike Place close enough but they came and found us.

An interesting tour of Seattle. Our driver Bryan was excellent. He was very knowledgeable, informative and great with people. We felt two hours at the Pike Place Markets was a little too long, but overall we enjoyed the tour and learnt a lot about the city.
Wish it were scheduled for later in the day 11am is too early for that much chocolate!. Also, like with Pike Place tour please suggest people bring water bottle and eat light meal in advance.

Great experience , Warren our tour guide was knowledgeable and made the tour extremely amusing and engaging with his good humour and wit . Food was fab with my favourites being the Crab cakes, and Clam Chowder. If you want a good tour and to get to now the Pike Place area I would highly recommend this tour.
Wonderful tour! The tour guide (Nick) was fun and engaging, and had a lot of good, fun, interesting information to share about Pike Place Market. I was on the tour alone, but it never felt that way, as Nick immediately made us all feel like one big happy tour family. The tasting portions were pretty sizable, and absolutely delicious! I even ate three kinds of smoked salmon - and enjoyed them - and I don't like fish! I would absolutely recommend this tour to anyone looking for a good way to kill a couple hours in Seattle. You get to learn about the historic Pike Place Market, and sample a lot of local goodies.
We had Brett as our guide and he was great! I'm very glad to have taken this tour and definitely recommend it to anyone wanting to get to know Pike Place Market.
It was wonderful having Tour in Pike Place Market. It was a different one. I'd experienced and tasted different
foods in every store and restaurant we stopped by and I learned some from their product according to what our tour guide had explain to us.
