This was my first trip to Seattle and it was a great experience. I loved the seafood and the scenery was spectacular. 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. Our guide for the walking tour on May 26 at 10:30 am was polite... More

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.

I did this tour with my daughter (12), another mom and her 3 kids (9,7,4). However, the 3 kids do not speak English and the mom was focused mainly on them. That said, my daughter and I really liked the tour. The tour guide knew his stuff and keep a good pace for the walk - not too fast and... More

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
