We had a great time. Lance was very knowledgable and nice. The tour got us to so many places that we never would have seen on our own in a day. Things ran smoothly and it was heaven just parking our car at the hotel and not having a worry in the world all day. Thanks for a great time!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

This tours showed me everything I wanted to see in Seattle without having to deal the traffic and parking. If you want to see all the typical tourist sites plus a little more, this is the tour for you.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

This is an outstanding tour if you are interested in a good overview of Seattle and its attractions. Our tour guide, Lance was excellent. He had a wealth of knowledge about this history of Seattle, its attractions and restaurants. If the weather cooperates, plan on an great picture opportunity at the end of the tour of downtown Seattle from Kerry Park. The tour is a solid six hours plus of tour time and total can end up as eight hours with travel time to/from hotel. You may also plan on dining or shopping in downtown Seattle following the tour conclusion if interested. I highly recommend this tour and Tours Northwest.

What a wonderful tour this was! This particular tour was especially ideal for people with a limited amount of time in Seattle. We were only in town for the day and we are certainly glad we chose Seattle in One Day! We did so much --- the Space Needle, scenic stops and a suitably lengthy stop in Pikes Market, which was amazing. Our tour guide, Mark, was very knowledgeable and well spoken. He gave us a little history about the state and answered all our questions. Finally, as a motion sickness proved traveler, I was so grateful that even though the tour was full, it did not have a crowded feeling. The bus was comfortable and the drive was smooth. When it ended, we were rested enough to enjoy some walking time around Seattle. Highly recommend this tour!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

It covered all the high points and gave us time in several of them. Would have liked more time at the Space Needle to go through the glass display. Appreciated being picked up at our hotel near the airport.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Loved the tour of Seattle and really enjoyed our tour guide. Lance did an excellent job of sharing interesting and fun information about a great city. My wife and I would not hesitate to do another tour if we returned to this area again. It certainly deserves a five star rating.
