My wife and I took the Bainbridge Island half day tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. We took the ferry over from Seattle and we were met right off the ferry by Jean and Jim our tour guides. You could tell right away that they both take great pride in their beautiful island and they are very knowledgeable. We made a... More

After travelling via ferry from Seattle across to Bainbridge Island we were met by Jean and Jim and little did my wife and I know what a wonderful day was in store for us. We did the Bainbridge Island & Kitsap Peninsula tour. After seeing lots of local sights which included Chief Seattle's resting place and the delightful town of... More

Jean and Jim were very helpful and knowledgeable! Though I booked a group tour, I was the only participant, so it turned into a private tour of Bloedel Reserve. On our way to the reserve, Jean told me all about Bainbridge Island city: the history, where the name came from, current inhabitants, culture. Jim drove us through the city centre... More

My wife and I took the full day Bainbridge Island/Kitsap peninsula tour on 10/4/14, and had a fantastic time. Jean and Jim were excellent hosts, and I was extremely appreciative that they chose not to cancel the tour despite the fact my wife and I were the only customers. So we had a personal tour and learned quite a bit... More

Kitsap Tours provides a wonderful tour experience. The tours I took were the 1/2 day Bainbridge Island tour and also the 1/2 day Bloedel Reserve tour. The guides escort guests off the Bainbridge Island ferry walk ramp and invite you to board a luxury motor coach. As hosts, Jean and Jim are very knowledgeable about the Kitsap area and tell... More

Michelle, What a wonderful review - thank you! It is always fun to show locals a thing or two they don't know about the area - more of a challenge so very rewarding :) We enjoyed getting to know you. More

I chose this tour because the owners were also the tour guide and driver. In my mind, if it's your business, you'll do a better job. Jean and Jim are a very sweet couple who seem to be passionate about the area where they make their home. We began our day by taking the Washington State ferry to Bainbridge Island... More

This 3 hour tour of the entire island was fantastic. Jean obviously loves what she does. The highlights were the sightings of huge jellyfish and a bald eagle, and the beautiful views of Mt. Rainier. We had great weather, which helped a lot. Definitely would recommend.

We took the tour of Bainbridge with Jean and Jim on a recent visit. Jean was very knowledgeable about the history of the island. We enjoyed the fact that we stopped and got out a various locations to get a better feel for the island. JoeG41

I was excited to visit Bainbridge, hearing that it was similar in feel to cities like Aspen, CO. This tour (I went on the half day Bainbridge Island tour with my 18 year old cousin and 2 seniors) definitely did it justice! The island is beautiful, but more importantly, the information that Jean and Jim provided made the trip better.... More

Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We enjoyed meeting you, your cousin and grandparents! We wish you great success as you enter college! Just an FYI and for anyone else reading this, the Bainbridge Island tour is more of a sightseeing tour than our other tours. This is because of the area being covered and the timing. This... More

We thought this would be a highlight of our visit to Seattle. Not so much. The couple who operate the tour are very nice and obviously enjoy what they do, but this tour is not worth the price. Much of it is spent traversing the island at relatively high speed (which means watching trees whiz by), while the two-hour lunch... More

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry it wasn't all that you would have liked. On the tour you took we do cover quite a bit of area but no one drive is more than 20 minutes except at the end when we head back to the ferry. We have, over 4 years, refined the amount of time we spend... More
