I scheduled this tour after reading wonderful reviews on several sites and I was not disappointed! 9 of the people I was traveling with all decided to book this tour and we ALL loved it. Mark was an excellent guide who provided interesting facts as well as comedy. We ate some delicious food and most of our group went back and purchased from the vendors after the tour was done. Several of us even revisited the market after our Alaskan Cruise to get the donuts and salmon before our flights home.
Our guide was delightful and the tour was perfect. It was educational and tasty!
More than just a "food" tour! Great food, great history and highly entertaining!
Our guide was fantastic. We have kids 8 and 12 and they enjoyed it as well.
So glad that we did this our first day in town.
Our tour was entertaining, informative and gave us some great insight into the city of Seattle. Can't remember our tour guide's name, but he was fantastic!!
Had grand time, great tour guide (complete with pink umbrella so we always knew where he was). Food bites were wonderful and the coupons to use were helpful. Only wish I lived nearby or had a similar place near me.
Great tour: Santino was informative, interesting and VERY funny. Santino provided a great historical base of the market and was able to answer nearly every question the group asked. We went to many different vendors and tried some wonderful food. Having the headset made sure we always were able to hear what Santino was saying. One of the group REALLY wanted to catch a fish at the Pike Place Fish Market and he both got to catch and throw one. This tour was a highpoint of my trip and is a great part of any trip to Seattle.
The tour was a fantastic experience. The food is great, the guide knowledgeable and entertaining with our best interest in mind. I'd have no hesitation in recommending this tour.
We decided to try the food tour with some trepidation. We had never done this before.
After meeting the group at Starbucks, across the road from the market, we followed our food guide, Matt, to the market.
The first advantage was that we were able to bypass the lines to get our food samples, some of which were almost a full meal in themselves. The stares of the people in line was an indication of what a good idea this was.
The choices of vendors was excellent. My wife and I did not eat certain foods, so Matt organized alternate choices at some vendors. They were delicious. We experienced a variety of foods, something we would NEVER have done without the tour.
The company's use of radio equipment so that we could easily hear Matt all the time was a bonus.
Based on our experiences at the different vendors, we went back the next day for a meal to one of our favorite choices from the tour.
We would strongly recommend this tour to anyone wanting an introduction to the Pike Place Market. Enter your review here.
***** More than expected. I was born and raised in Seattle 40 yrs. Been going to market since I was 4 yrs old. So took some friends to tour. Our guide Brett told us so many things I never knew..He is also very funny. Food choices were excellent. I will do this again. Judy
Our food tour with Santino was a great experience! Santino did an amazing job showing us the market with detailed history and incredible enthusiasm. I would not only highly recommend the food tour but would recommend any tour that Santino was guiding. Thanks for a great experience!
Even if you've been to the Pike Place Market on your own, this tour is a must because you deal directly with the merchants who are kind hosts. You sample chai with orange and cinnamon, three types of smoked salmon, seasonal fruits, sausage, clam chowder, seafood bisque, cheddar and goat cheeses, macaroni and cheese, pork loin, a salty caramel and miniature crabcakes.
It wa 5 star.The food was excellant and the giude was informative and funny. We truly einjoyed it and will recommend to friends visiting Seattle.
