Extremely knowledgeable & passionate guide. This 3 hour tour went slightly over time due to traffic and amount of content to cover. Information shared by our guide about Seattle was interesting and enlightening. Well worth the time and cost. Small group tour is great. For spots we ran out of time to see eg. Troll under the bridge because of Friday afternoon traffic, our guide gave us directions and suggested other similar attractions to visit. Will definitely recommend this tour to friends. My parents also used the same company to tour the Boeing Factory & had a positive experience.

Perfect introduction to the city

This is what you want to do on your first day in Seattle. It's a small bus tour where you go through all important parts of the city, and the guide tells you about its history, landmarks, attractions, famous people, etc. Our guide was fun and knowledgeable, we loved the whole thing, and it made it easier to plan the rest of our vacation.

Nothing special

Went through a lot of different regions of the city, learned a lot from our guide, Neil, but ultimately not worth the price. All we did was drive around. We stopped only briefly for a snack or a picture. It just wasn’t very fun, especially when listening to our guide yawn throughout and vocalize his road rage on the microphone. Not worth the price. Should’ve included more for the value.

Great tour guide but I expected more stop and walk versus basically a driving tour with minimal stops.

Neil was our guide and gave us so many stories about what we were seeing. Loved his story about where he believes cats came from, so funny! Very patient in answering everyone's questions and even pointed out some great places to eat!

Our tour driver (Neal) was a ton of knowledge. Aside from the jokes that kept us in tune and involved, he seems to know the area like the back of his hand.

Our tour-guides James & Layla are very friendly and knowledgeable of Seattle, and kept us interested of the sites we visited throughout the entire 3 hours. The best part is the view of Ballard Locks & Fish Ladder. We were lucky the weather was beautiful and get a good orientation of the Emerald City with this tour.
