Good use of your time
Troy_D, Jan 2022
Chef John had great stories of the area to add color to the tour. It was great not having to wait for in line for the 7 or 8 tastes in 2 hours. Good use of our time. I would recommend you do this tour first in the weekend so you can plan the rest of the weekend to go back if you want. Everything had a line so worth your time.
Lots of history!!!

Knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide! Lots of good food and wide variety of shops. We got to walk around a lot too to digest.
Would do it again in a heartbeat!
Lyndsay_V, Jan 2022
Wow! Wow! Wow! Chef John was exceptional and the tour was top notch. We learned and ate our way through the market. You could see the envy on other peoples faces as they saw us devouring samples. This is not a corny tour. This feels like a beer kept secret. I’d do it again. Maybe even tomorrow! Thanks for making our 40th bday trip so special!
Full after 2 hours of eating

Do not pass this up!
Charisse_D, Jan 2022
Fantastic tour! Chef Eric was extremely knowledgeable and answered every question. A great variety of stops and also gave a lot of info about Pike and its place in the Seattle economy as well as how Pike supports the community. Highly recommended!
Lisa_L, Dec 2021
Chef Eric was an excellent guide. He was personable, knowledgeable, and kept a great pace for the tour. He was able to take us behind the scenes at a few places for a true VIP experience. The food was fantastic. Without exception, the tastings were on point. Chef Eric even got us a few extras because of his relationships with some of the vendors. 10/10 would recommend and look forward to doing this again next time we come to Seattle. If you’re on the fence about signing up for this tour, go ahead and do it, you be glad you did!
A nice way to experience the Market

A nice variety of foods. The guide was friendly but we could have done without so many personal stories “my friend used to work at this shop” and more info on each chef or restaurant.
Team Eric!!
Ariel_G, Dec 2021
Team Eric!!! Our Chef Eric was amazing. He was extremely knowledgeable. We tried some of the markets best. Everything moved so smoothly. We were with our 71 year old grandmother and Eric was accommodating while she walked slowly. We also had food allergies that Chef Eric accommodated along with the shops. This tour is for everyone even if you have food allergies or don’t eat meat.
