Seattle Combo Tour: City Tour, Pike Place Market and Boeing Factory

Pike Place Market

This comprehensive tour of Seattle is broken into three parts: a tour of the city itself, time at the famous Pike Place Market and a fascinating journey through the Boeing factory and Future of Flight Aviation Center.

The day begins with a hotel pickup before venturing to Seattle’s main attractions and landmarks in and around the city. There’s the famous Space Needle, of course. Also stop at historic Pioneer Square and Ballard Locks, which provides a link for boats between Puget Sound, the Ship Canal and Lakes Union and Washington. On a clear day, majestic Mt. Rainier will be visible in the distance. See it all, and cover an impressive 50 miles of real estate, in only three hours.

Then it’s off to Pike Place Market, one of the oldest farmer’s markets in the United States, for lunch (own expense) and leisure. Spend 1.5 hours wandering and welcoming the sights, sounds and smells (and tastes, definitely tastes) of this remarkable nine-acre market. 

Finally, the tour moves to Boeing, the world’s largest aerospace company, and their factory north of the city in Everett, WA. Upon arrival, a Boeing representative will uncover the inner workings of the assembly plant where Boeing airplanes are manufactured. Go ahead, be impressed. It is, after all, the largest building in the world by volume. See the planes as they are being built and watch a short film that will further reveal how a plane is constructed from start to finish. Then stop at the Future of Flight Aviation Center, with interactive exhibits to not only build a plane, but also fly it in a simulator. Amazing.

The tour concludes with a return trip to Seattle.

Awesome tour! Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We were picked up on time and everything ran to schedule. We saw so much in the one day and all at a friendly pace. The Boeing factory was just amazing to see and the city of Seattle is an awesome place. Would love to go back!!!

Thoroughly enjoyable, the Boeing trip has to be the most impressive next to Johnson Space Centre. Excellent service from both Bus drivers. Pike market was great as well. A good day out

This was a very nice tour of Seattle. The bus driver was a very good narrator. We learned so much we did not know! We are very happy that we booked the tour. Pike Place market was quite an experience! Unfortunately, just as we were on our way to visit the Boeing Factory, the bus driver received a call informing him that Boeing had lost power due to unusually high winds and all visitor's tours were canceled. That was very disappointing but unfortunately could not be helped. We are still happy that we booked the excursion and the company refunded us the unused portion of our tour. Thank you Viator. We will use you again.
