I can't remember what our tour guide's name was! Alex? He was very funny (and punny) and originated from San Francisco. You're lucky if you get him! I wish I remembered his name. He was a great guide, keeping us entertained while spouting facts and interesting side stories about Pike Place. The entire experience was really made by him. We loved the food tastings and special deals, and one of our tour group members even got to catch one of the thrown fish! It was fantastic. This tour is highly recommended, because we got to taste so many things without waiting in long lines and we learned so much more than we expected to learn. The radios were easy to use and adjust the volumes and they worked really well. Overall an awesome tour.
Our tour guide was CJ. We found him to be knowledgeable, amusing and held our interest in the tour. We got to taste a number of excellent samples from the various vendors. We thought the tour was well worth the money. Should we be in Seattle again we would definitely take another tour with this company.
Terrible! First the radios did not work. Our guide switched out a couple of units and ear phones but to no avail. There is no excuse for having bad equipment! It should be testedprior to the tour and enough working units should be available for all guests.
I was in the worst situation because my husband is handicapped and was using a scooter. The market was mobed and he had a hard time getting through the crowd. Not being able to hear the guide and keeping track of my husband made the tour impossible. Weleft the group about 10 minutes after it started. Not a good thing. I will think twice before going on a tour again!
