Seattle City Tour

On this exciting Seattle three-hour bus tour, you'll visit and learn about downtown Seattle, The Seattle Waterfront, Pioneer Square and witness some outstanding views of the city. You'll pass through quirky neighborhoods, visit the Ballard Locks with ladders for the spawning salmon, The Giant Bridge Troll, and the famous "Sleepless in Seattle" floating home. Each and every step is an experience not to be missed!

Downtown - There is a lot to see in Downtown Seattle, and the sights, due to the vibrant and growing nature of the city's core, are always changing. You will see downtown's retail stores, including the flagship stores of Nordstrom, Pike Place Farmer's Market, the first Starbuck's Coffee shop, and the Fish Markets.

The Waterfront - Seattle's Waterfront is an exciting place to go. Here, at the center of many of Seattle's water-based industries, you will see the freight port, Harbor Island and also the docks for the Washington State ferry system. Heading North along the waterfront past many souvenir shops, you'll see Ivars' Acres of Clams, and many other Puget Sound attractions. Finally you will head up to the beautiful Myrtle Edwards Park with its unparalleled views of Elliott Bay.

Pioneer Square - At the epicenter of Seattle, you'll find many of the oldest buildings in town, and also hear about the fire which, about a century ago, leveled the entire city. Pioneer Square is also home to many wonderful art galleries, antique and book stores.

Since we had limited time in Seattle this was the perfect tour to give us a good picture of the city. Our tour guide James was informative and entertaining. Would recommend this tour!

This was one of the high points of our trip. Our tour director was wonderful and showed us things that we never would have seen. He was very patient and informative with us. I would recommend this to everyone who is going to be in the city. I am glad that we took this tour.

Every thing went as we hoped. Our driver, Carlton, is well researched, has a great memory, and is a fine communicator. He went out of his way to meet our needs.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

our tour director/driver was Steve.....he was very knowledgeable and willing to share his Seattle with us. The day in early June the 8th was a picture perfect day - we could see all the way to MT. Rainier and the city vistas and overlooks he took us too were magnificent - all while filling us in on local history and perspectives. We were actually in town for the day, waiting for our flight 12 hours later. Viator made it very easy for us with full and easy instructions to get downtown to meet up at the Westin for pick up. Also, my husband has a walker, and Steve was very helpful in stashing it and getting it back out at stops. Thank You Steve and Viator for a great day!!!

David was a terrific tour guide. He was very accommodating.
Just one correction of fact. Martin Selig was not the architect of the Columbia Tower, but the developer.
