What You Can Expect

Seattle in One Day: Sightseeing Tour including Space Needle and Pike Place Market

Pike Place Market

The day begins with a hotel pickup by air-conditioned mini-coach before you venture to Seattle’s main attractions and landmarks in and around the city. There’s the famous Space Needle (admission included). Bring a camera to capture incredible views of Mt Rainier, the Cascade and Olympic Mountain ranges, Puget Sound and the Seattle skyline. Your knowledgeable and friendly guide will provide commentary on the city as you go.

Travel to the Lake Union area, with a number of floating homes, including the one from the movie Sleepless in Seattle. Pass by the University of Washington and find the famous public sculpture called the Fremont Troll.

Ballard Locks is one of Seattle's most popular tourist attractions, especially during the warmer months. Then there’s historic Pioneer Square, the birthplace of Seattle and the city's “first neighborhood,” with great restaurants, shops, night life and two pro sports teams. Also visit the Chinatown-International District, also known as ID, one of Seattle’s oldest neighborhoods.

Over in Belltown, the city’s most populated neighborhood, is the famous Pike Place Market, one of the oldest public farmers’ markets in the United States. Stop for lunch (own expense) and leisure and spend two hours wandering and welcoming the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of this remarkable nine-acre market. Coffee lovers will want the experience of stopping at the original Starbucks here, too. Feel free to stop and get out at any of the sites or attractions that look especially appealing.

Mike was a delight. It was a long tour, but worth every penny. Saw many sights as this was my first trip to Seattle. Will book a Viator tour again.

Brilliant tour, Barry our guide was extremely knowledgeable and made the day very enjoyable. Nice sized group of 16, lovely air conditioned bus. The space needle trip could do with a little bit more time but you do get to see everything. If you are strapped for time, i only had one day in Seattle, this is the way to do it. Wonderful tour, fabulous photo opportunities, all the major landmarks including the space needle, pike place market and the very first Starbucks. I can't wait to go back

Awesome!!! Our tour guide knew his way around Seattle and showed us places we would have never found on our own! And we didn't have to deal with the traffic! So glad I signed up for this tour. We had perfect weather for photos from the Space Needle and the Queen Ann Neighborhood.

We had a wonderful time on the tour. There was plenty of time to explore the Space Needle and Pikes Market. Our guide was the best! He was able to enhance our experience with his knowledge. His love for the city shone through.

Our driver's name was Randy and he was very knowledgeable about Seattle, being a native. It was a very interesting tour, and I felt he took us to all the high spots of Seattle and some very neat neighborhoods. And he kept the conversation lively and interesting. The 6 hour tour flew by. My wife and I enjoyed it very much.

This was a fantastic tour. Lance was very knowledgeable and gave us wonderful suggestions for Pikes Market. I asked the guys who throw the fish for a picture and they more than happy to oblige. The Seattle Needle sells the best fudge I ever tasted. The scenery was beautiful and the bus was very comfortable. I would do this 6 hour tour again.
