I had booked a tour for our family of four with another company based on price and ratings. However, after looking at the reviews again and seeing that Shutter Tours included the Falls, I changed my mind and decided to book with them. When I went online the day before to book them, the tour did not show as available.... More

I'm glad we were able to have the tour together and I'm happy you called to take a chance with a tour being available. Your family was wonderful to share Snoqualmie Falls and the city with and I too had a real enjoyable day. Thank you again and you made my day with these great comments. Terry Divyak Owner -... More

Shutter Tours is the best way to see Seattle and its surrounding areas. Terry (tour guide) is a Seattle native that shares the beauty, culture and history of his city. The sites that you visit are not only breathtaking, but they are often historic. Being in the comfort of his well-appointed and modern bus allows you to cover areas that... More

Terry, our guide, was outstanding in every way! He was knowledgable, a patient teacher, friendly, and flexible. He took us to some of the most interesting places in Seattle and we learned a lot about the city. There is no way we could have covered all the ground he did by ourselves. His tour bus was very clean and comfortable... More

First of all, credit needs to be given to Terry for his graciousness in making sure everyone on tour was well taken of. Terry is knowledgable of the history of the sites visited, and told interesting stories of Seattle's past. What made this tour unique and outstanding is that Terry is an experienced photographer. At the start of this tour,... More

My daughter, best friend, and I had a wonderful experience. Terry, the tour guide, is very knowledgeable and patient. He was always available to help take our pictures and offered the best advice on capturing great shots. Thankfully, the weather was much better than the day before. We wish there was time to stop at the market since we didn't... More

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the tour and I'm glad you had such a great time with us. One of the reasons we utilize the Pike Pike Market as a pickup and drop off point is that it allows our guests to explore the market on their own and we can spend more time seeing locations that require...

Highly recommend this tour to anyone in the Seattle area ... visiting or otherwise! I did not make the connection at first with "Shutter Tours" and photography, but it didn't matter. You do not need to be an experienced photographer to take this tour. Our guide, Terry, provided amazing views and experiences that in turn provided all levels of expertise... More

On a recent first-time visit to Seattle, my 2 adult daughters and I decided to try the "Snoqualmie Falls and City Tour" hoping to get an overview of both downtown and some outlying areas. This tour was all we were looking for and more! In 3+ hours, we saw such a variety of fascinating spots in and around the city,... More

Wow! Terry showed our family Seattle in a unique way keeping 2 teenage boys entertained, answering endless questions and going well beyond any tour I have been on. It turned out we were the only people on the tour and Terry catered the time to what we had not seen so far. The day was stunning but cold and ice... More

Background: I lived in Seattle for a year, somewhat against my will. I stayed in hotels the whole time and high-tailed it back to SF as soon as I could. Meanwhile, while in Seattle, I discovered this neighborhood or that, saw a few sights, but never got a real pulse of the place. I was up for a couple of... More
