This is a great tour - Terry was very knowledgeable and insightful about Seattle; you will definitely learn a lot but also see sites that will make a lasting impression of each story you hear. I love Terry's photography tips and the wealth of knowledge he shared with everyone. He was also very helpful with directions and tips for places... More

We did a private tour which I highly recommend. Chandler was so accommodating, we had three kids, a twenty something and mom and dad (50). We saw so much in one day and on a very flexible pace. My kids could not last to the normal lunch stop, but he came up with three other options and let us choose.... More

This tour is professionally organized and takes in a diverse set of sites. The tour conductor picked us up at the port, took us to the station to store our luggage for our onward train journey and returned us to the station at the end of the tour. We enjoyed seeing the falls, locke and sampling chocolate (couldn't resist buying... More

Don't be put off by the name "Shutter Tours" as this is really for everybody. All of us were given a few pointers for taking photos at the different sites we visited, but detailed discussions of cameras were reserved for those who requested them. The small bus held 16 guests and the guide used a mike to be sure we... More

This was a fantastic tour with lots of good photo tips included. Not only did my husband and I learn a lot about Seattle but we learned about our camera, too! Terry was very knowledgeable and had lots of very good information while we saw some fantastic sites.

Its important for us to not only provide a fun tour, but helping you capture those photos is an added bonus. I'm glad we were able to help with your camera. There are so many options on cameras today and even we have a hard time keeping up on the technology changes and glad we could be of assistance. Terry... More

We took this tour to get an overview of seattle attractions that we could not see traveling the light link. We were a small group of teens with chaperones. The girls were really excited by all they saw, and enjoyed the history of the city as well as the photography tips. It was a great tour - thank you.

Shutter Tours gave us an overview of Seattle, took us to a beautiful waterfall, locks on a river, a quirky piece of urban art, and a park overlooking the skyline and Mount Rainier. Our guide, Terry, was personal and friendly, telling stories about Seattle history and some of the large Seattle companies. He also gave us some good tips on... More

It's always great to be able to share Kerry Park when Mt. Rainier is out and Snoqualmie Falls is such an amazing place to see mother nature at work. I like to joke when I am at the falls, that "I love my office" and I'm glad you enjoyed our stop there as well as the other locations. Terry Divyak... More
