What You Can Expect

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.

The City Tour brought us to experience different towns and bridges and view points, with enough time to walk and take pictures. The Pike Place Market was very interesting, we bought the famous Rainier Cherries and the delicious lunch, and watched the fun fresh Fishes Market. The Boeing Factory was beyond our normal plane travel, it gave us the deeper appreciation of Plane Building Business, with so many pieces of parts and sophisticated technology. This 3 in 1 Tour summed up the Life and business of Seattle, and witnessed the ever expanding City.

Great trip, we learned so much about Seattle. We never would have seen half of what we saw on our own. The traffic in Seattle was so horrid, but we just relaxed and let the driver handle everything.

We loved this tour. Wesley the guide was a hoot, he made it special with his commentary and quirky sense of humour. We both feel in love with Seattle. It was a long day but worth it. The Boeing Factory tour was a revelation, would have loved to stay longer just to look at the beautiful aircraft!

Our tour guide Adam was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. We covered a lot of ground, got a good overview and sense of Seattle, and the entire day was enjoyable and did not feel too long.
