My wife and I took the harbor cruise and The World's Greatest Seattle Walking Tour. The cruise was great the waking tour was horrible.

My girlfriend and I took this tour on a Saturday at 10:30am - with Wendy as our tour guide. She was absolutely amazing and informative and I learned more than I could have imagined about Seattle and each of the neighborhoods. I am so happy we decided to do this tour - plus it was a bargain at $15/person and... More

This was a good way to kill a few hours and see some of the highlights of down town Seattle. No offence to the guide but he seemed a little uninterested, a bit like he was just going through the motions. The tour is worth going on, just not likely to be a highlight of your trip.

Really enjoyed this walking tour! We covered a good amount of the downtown area and learned an entertaining mix of history and current day info (for example, how Seattle-ites really feel about Starbucks!) We had some free time to walk around Pike's Place Market too (it felt like the right amount of time, enough to look around a little, but... More

We took this tour on our first day in Seattle and it was perfect! Personalized and leisurely, we learned both the history of Seattle and some great pointers for our trip. We really liked the relaxed, non-gimmicky nature of this tour and that we got a preview of the highlights which helped us choose an itinerary for the remainder of... More
