This was a great way to see and explore the Pike Market! You get an understanding of the inner workings so you can better appreciate your experience . Matt was an awesome leader and truly has a passion for what he does and the people in Market. Highly recommend this tour!!
Mark was an excellent guide and I'm glad we went on this tour. I wouldn't have wanted to navigate the market on my own, especially since my husband has mobility issues. We enjoyed the many food vendors we visited and the wealth of knowledge of our guide. Our granddaughters especially enjoyed the gum wall and were able to add to it. I highly recommend this tour.
Heather, the tour guide was very informative and had a great personality. The places we stopped at had sub par food samples. The prices of the food are outrageous as well as the large crowds of people. Sorry, but I wouldn't recommend this tour.
The four of us had an amazing day with Katya on the tour of Pike Place Market. Her knowledge about the market and her passion was contagious. The food we experienced during the 2 hours was out of this world. From the first samples at Honest biscuit we were fans. It was the best start to our vacation. We would recommend that anyone visiting Seattle put this tour on your must do list. Ask for Katya if you can.
