We had a wonderful experience with Chef Sean! He was entertaining and informative. It is very obvious he loves what he does and his city!!! He was well informed about the market and the vendors! My friend had to walk slower than the rest of the group and he was amazing about making sure we didn't miss anything!!! We got a variety of tastes of the foods found in the market! I highly recommend this tour!!

Team Eric for the win! Gracious host, very knowledgeable. A culinary delight. 2 hours went by fast but there’s a lot to sample.
Carol_B, Sep 2022
Chef Sean was beyond awesome! I am deaf and his great voice & attention to my disability made this food tour extra special. He was extremely knowledgeable and most importantly a real blast! He connected with each of the tour guests on a personal level. The food selection was varied & outstanding! Honestly the best chocolate, margarita pizza, salmon and clam chowder I’ve ever tasted to name a few. I highly recommend this Food Tour as a way to better experience Pike Place Market.
If only time for one tour, pick this one!

My husband and I have done walking food tours in NYC, San Fran, and Vancouver, Canada. The bar was set high for this one and did not disappoint. It was our lucky day with the sunshine and mild temps to enjoy in early September. Our Chef, Sean started off the tour with a no nonsense attitude we both liked. We went to many different venues that included sweet, savory, award winning, and delicious tastes. We stayed a few days after the tour and hit three places we sampled—bought some fresh fruit, clam chowder, and mac and cheese at three different vendors. We also had food and drink recommendations from Chef Sean and ended up eating at two and drinking at one. Overall our experience was so positive that we had to write a review.
Amazing introduction to pike place market.

Sean Welsh took us on a great tour through the ins and outs of Pikes Market- where to eat off the beaten path and gave us a lot of great background on the places we stopped! He is a great tour guide for a fun place to take a foodie tour. We will come back another time!
Best tour of Pikes Place Market!

Best tour in Seattle
Curtis_W, Sep 2022
This was our FAVORITE tour of the four we did in Seattle. We skipped all the lines and tasted a lot of what we wanted and a lot of what we never would have on our own. Liz was fantastic and knew everything you could imagine about pike place market and even Seattle history in general. Group was small, 10 people and we could hear her. The tastes are said to be Costco sized, but they were bigger and by the end we were full and I couldn’t take more than a small bite- rest went to my husband. Every bite was fresh and delicious! I don’t know if each tour is different but we had Chowder, chocolate cherries, truffle salt, oil & paste, salmon jerky, smoked salmon, pizza, tacos, cheeses, biscuits, gourmet chic chip cookies and more! Sometimes 2-3 different items per stop. The market is bustling and crowded, a bit overwhelming for first timers - THIS is the best way to do it. Highly recommend! *market pretty much closes by 4 pm.
Best thing I did in Seattle.
Susan_N, Sep 2022
Our guide was excellent. He really gave us an understanding of the history of the market. Without him it would just be food, with him it was a story of how the small businesses got started and grew within the confines of the market. It was about the families that created the fare. It was a delicious way to spend an afternoon and a very informative guide. He had energy and enthusiasm. He made great recommendations and everyone seem to respond positively to the tour. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Great Market Place experience with Eric.
Flavio_U, Sep 2022
