When I ventured to Seattle, never did I think such a gem was awaiting on the other side of the water. Jean and Jim were so welcoming. Even though I was the only person who had signed up for the morning portion of the combined morning and afternoon tours, the tour went on. They could easily have cancelled, as many... More

Thank you for the glowing review! It was a joy to show you around the beautiful Bloedel Reserve. I love it when our guests show such obvious appreciation for this beautiful garden. I had fun because you were having such a good time! Thank you also for the photos - you captured some great ones! More

Dear Jim and Jean, How have you two been? Still waiting for you to be in Singapore. All the reviews said it all. I want to add that after my adventure with 'Kitsap Tours' in Spring 2011, I still have fond fun memories of all the exciting things I have learned and did during the tour. For me the highlight...

We've been great! How fun to get such a great review from someone who took the tour a while ago and still thinks about us! We took the electric boat out on Liberty Bay, part of Puget Sound and we had as much fun as you did! If you come back next Fall I hope we see you! Thank you... More

We had a fantastic experience in the Reserve with Jean. It's not every day a guide is as knowledgeable, friendly, and professional as Jean. We are so appreciative of how she went above and beyond patiently and enthusiastically answering all guests' institutes regarding the myriad complexities and facets of Mother Nature evidenced at the Reserve. I highly recommend this tour... More

Thank you so much for the wonderful review! I love what I do and I am glad that translates into good customer service. The beautiful Bloedel Reserve stands on its own - an amazing place to visit with us (Kitsap Tours) or on your own. Again, thank you for the review :) More

I was so impressed with the professional, but personal tour Jean gave us of the Bloedel Reserve. I volunteer at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, and include gardens in each of my trips. This tour was a brisk walk through some of the 150 acres, but Jeans expertise and her information about plants made this an educational tour. Loved the tour... More

Was in the Seattle area for a short vacation and wanted to get out of the city for a day and learn a little and see a little without going too far. The full day tour of Bainbridge Island and the Kitsap Peninsula was right on target. We caught the 9:35 am ferry to Bainbridge and there was Jean waiting... More

Some friends of ours who visited the area recently highly recommended this tour, so my better half and I decided to make a reservation for the tour of the reserve. As soon as we disembarked the ferry, Jean met us with a big smile, and ushered us onto the comfortable, air conditioned tour shuttle (it's not a bus per se,... More

Touring Bainbridge Island reminded us of our old home town of Tewksbury, NJ. There is nothing to tour their either.

I'm sorry you didn't find the tour of Bainbridge Island more interesting. As you can see from other reviews guests have overwhelmingly found it not only interesting but have rated it very highly. It's difficult to understand how a combination of a beach walk with a beach naturalist and great views, history, heritage, spectacular scenery at every turn, off the... More

My partner and I signed up for a tour of the Reserve and were pleased in all aspects. Jean was an excellent tour guide; she was friendly, knowledgeable, and had a good sense of humor.

You're welcome! It is always fun to show people through the beautiful Bloedel Reserve. The reserve shows itself but I enjoy telling the stories behind the beauty and talking about the various plants. Thank you for your very kind words and it sounds like you enjoyed your meal following the tour - terrific! More

After two days of heavy duty sight seeing in Seattle without a car, we rode the ferry to Bainbridge for this peaceful, relaxing trip. Jean brought out the best of the area even when her commentary was repeated in other languages. Poulsba was nice and Port Gamble was beautiful. Plus great views coming and going of the Seattle skyline and... More
