Marla Contini was an amazing tour guide. Having lived in the Seattle area my whole life I was surprised at how many new things I learned about the Market. Marla had a good sense of humor and had great insight and knowledge about Pike Place Market. I would recommend this tour for both visitors as well as locals.

Marla was an amazing tour guide that was full of fun and liveliness. Besides all the amazing and delicious food we sampled, what I appreciated the most was the educational and informative part of Pike Place Market. You guys just have to do the tour yourselves to find out more. I would definitely recommend touring with Marla and Seattle Bites... More

We expected to see some of the many establishments at Pike's Place, what we didn't expect were samples from so ,many of them. Amy was extremely knowledgeable about the shops and history of Pike's Place. We learned much more about Seattle than we anticipated.

Our guide, Amy, was so knowledgeable and everyone in the Market knew her. We enjoyed the food tasting bites and the information she gave us along the way. The tour was a highlight of our time in Seattle. Thank you, Amy! Be sure to book ahead as it fills up quickly in the summer. The walking tour combines areas where... More

OK, I waited too long to book the "freebie" Pike Market Food Tour for 3 of us, husband and granddaughter. So, when I tried to book Seattle Bites it appeared to be unavailable, also. So disappointed. I emailed confirming that possibility. I was contacted by owner, long story short they added a new tour for us!! How cool is that??... More

First of all Amy was wonderful. She made us feel like family during our tour. Her history knowledge of the Public Market Center was phenomenal. Without going on this tour we would have not appreciated the community serving as an incubator and supporter of farmers, artisans and small businesses, the Pike Place Market was charted by the City of Seattle...

The tour guide and the explanations were wonderful. We just felt a little short-changed since we only visited 8 of the 10 places that were originally offered. We were supposed to taste some wines and that didn't actually happen.

This tour was super fun & informative. We learned some great information about the history of the market, and our guide, Amy, was fantastic! The "bites" were all very good size & in total it was plenty of food for lunch. I highly recommend this tour!

We took visiting family on the Seattle Bite's tour in late September 2015. Everyone had a great time and really enjoyed the emphasis on market history. Amy was a terrific tour guide.

Amy was our guide for this 2 hour venture.....although "off season" (late September), the market was pretty active and she chose to use the little radio receiver devices. This proved to be a great idea because u could hear hear her even when standing 10-15 feet away - never had to strain to understand what was going on. The food... More
