Hearing devices were EXCEPTIONAL AND the tour leader was GREAT! Wonderful. Believe early morning tours would be better just because of the busyness of the market - thought the Tour Leader did such a good job just getting our group around. Think this is the best kept secret in tours. Victoria
This trip was wonderful! Rich was our guide and he was great - gave us a good sense of the history of the Market as well as good food recommendations. What I was most surprised about was that he gave us an earpiece so we could hear him better - this was great considering the market was so loud! It also gave us the ability to walk around and get a better look without missing a word of the tour. Both my husband and I would recommend it!
Man. I am just gonna start by saying that I WISH I knew the dude's name that gave the tour (I know, I should have done this sooner and I slacked it) because man he was amazing. I took the morning tour, so if he gives the morning tour on a regular basis you might get him. Aside from being INCREDIBLY informative, with tons of history about the market, this dude was so AMAZINGLY HILARIOUS! I wish I could tell you how great this dude was. He always had a quick, sharp, witty response or a great story wherever we were on the tour. He provided historical facts and hysterical laughs all in the same tour and I cannot tell you enough times how bad you need to take this tour. If I am ever back in Seattle I will take the tour again just because this dude's sense of humor is worth it.
Our one-hour tour was just the right way to get an overview of the Market with the limited time we had available. Our tour guide, Emily (we think that was her name), was absolutely delightful and should be commended for her ability to relate to her clients and for her knowledge of the history of the market. We would certainly recommend this tour to others who plan to visit Seattle.
Really good historical tour of the market. The guide was fantastic, very enthusiastic and knowledgable.
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.
