Private Tour: Seattle Highlights

Visit Pike Place Market on this Private Tour

After downtown hotel pickup, begin this private, customized tour around Seattle. Ask the friendly and knowledgeable guide for advice on where to go or make some selections and let the sightseeing start.

Where to begin? There are plenty of options. Consider Belltown, the city’s most populated neighborhood and home of the famous Pike Place Market, one of the oldest public farmers markets in the United States. It overlooks the Elliott Bay waterfront, with its span of parks and piers, ferry and ship terminals and promenades and public spaces. Coffee lovers will want the experience of visiting the original Starbucks here, too. Feel free to stop and get out at any of the sites or attractions that look especially appealing.

Not far from Belltown is the iconic Space Needle. Don’t let this opportunity pass by. Jump out, buy a ticket and ride to the top for unforgettable views of majestic Mt Rainier, the Cascade and Olympic Mountain ranges, Puget Sound and the Seattle skyline. Consider visiting the lookout point on Queen Anne Hill for a breathtaking view of the city from a distance.

Ballard Locks is one of Seattle's most popular tourist attractions, especially during the warmer months. There’s Pioneer Square, the birthplace of Seattle, with great restaurants, shops, night life and home to two pro sports teams. Then there’s the Chinatown-International District, also known as ID, also one of Seattle’s oldest neighborhoods. Travel to the Lake Union area, with a number of floating homes, including the one from the movie Sleepless in Seattle. Pass by the University of Washington and find the famous public sculpture called the Fremont Troll.

Choose a few or choose them all. This private tour of Seattle makes it easy.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

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
