We were fortunate to have Elvis as our guide on our 3 hour tour. He made the trip very enjoyable. He has an amazing wealth of knowledge about the area. We were very impressed. As it turned out, one of our party accidentally left his cell phone on the bus and Elvis went above and beyond to return it to our hotel. That was very impressive. We would definitely book another tour with him when we get a chance to return to Seattle.

Wife and I took the 3 hour city tour and enjoyed it very much. Our driver Dave Elvis cab driver was fun, funny, friendly, and had a lot of great insights on the city. I enjoyed his corny jokes but also appreciated the non-touristy tidbits on the city he would share along the way. He'd talk through the commissioned talking points then add the gritty underbelly historic aspects of the city which I thought was very cool, especially the bit about the Panama Hotel and its part during the Japanese internment fiasco.

Highly recommend this tour. It's a great way to see the major Seattle spots and also hit up some amazing viewpoints for breathtaking photos.

Thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Carlton was the best tour guide we ever had. He was happy to share his knowledge of Seattle. Highlight was stopping at locks long enough to watch a boat go through. Would definitely recommend this tour and Carlton!

Our driver and tour guide, Carlton, was terrific. He did a great job of pointing out major landmarks while also giving insight, history and small details of buildings and locations a visitor would never know. I highly recommend this tour
