This was a great opportunity to see Seattle on a limited time schedule before our cruise. Barry, our tour guide, was prompt, friendly and very knowledgeable! He delivered us to our ship right on time. Enjoyed the experience and I highly recommend this tour!

They say rate 1 to 10 on anything. Our tour was an 11. Best money spent in Seattle. I learned so much about Seattle and got to see it too. The Lock was my favorite. The getting on was very confusing and we had been picked up at the hotel and taken to another location and no one knew what to do with us. We were not on any list. Upsetting to me as I had paid on line before arriving. They keep calling and finally we got on a bus for a tour............That was a very bad experience.........But then the tour started and it turned out good..

We really enjoyed the pre-cruise tour. It covered so much of Seattle and the surrounding areas - it was so complete. It gave us a good idea of what the area is like. The tour guide was so knowledgable. We loved the tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

This was a great way to see Seattle before our cruise. We were so glad we took the time rather than just go to the cruise. This is the first time we've gone outside the cruise ship excursions offerings, but this and a Viator trip during the cruise were very good and just as easy pick up and drop off as the cruise ships.
