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

Without a doubt, the most stunning beauty of the historic reserve is to be savored and enjoyed through the knowledgeable, articulate, humble, and genuinely fun Jean and her wonderful husband. I couldn't imagine a more divine time of experiencing the intensely magical, overly picturesque views from the reserve, not to mention the engaging, immensely interesting information Jean shared with my...

Just completed a full day tour of Bainbridge Island and Kitsnap Peninsula. The tour was great. Our hosts were knowledgeable and friendly. Learned a great deal about the natural and cultural history of the area. Breathtaking waterviews abounded. The tour bus was new and comfy. I would reccommend this tour to friends with no hesitation.

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

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

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
