We are a top rated Seattle sightseeing tour company designed to help you not only see many great locations but spend quality time to take photos and explore each spot. Our signature Snoqualmie Falls bus tour is a great way to see the falls and enjoy some time in the city exploring great locations like the Hiram Chittenden Locks, Fremont Troll and Kerry Park.

Highly recommend this tour company and Terry, our tour guide. Best tour we've taken during or after any of our many cruise vacations. Terry is so knowledgeable of the Seattle area. He's very entertaining and gives great photography tips to make our vacation photos the best. Our private group tour of 8 adults was a day long tour in a... More

Had a fantastic tour of the beautiful Tulips in the Skagit Valley. Terry, our driver and guide, was excellent. He even taught me how to do a Pano picture! When a friend saw my pictures, her comment was, "You saw more tulips than I did in Amsterdam!" So convenient to be picked up and dropped off at hotel. Enjoyed the... More

Terry was a very knowledgeable and interesting host for this tour that included helpful hints on taking better snaps of the points of interest. It was a very relaxed, friendly 4 hours and well worth the money. We were picked up at our cruise ship pier and delivered back to our hotel. We would highly recommend this tour of the... More

Having arrived in Seattle without too much pre-planning I was delighted to find that Shutter Tours had availability on their Snoqualmie Falls and City Tour. The tour offers hotel pick up and drop off in downtown and belltown and they call you the day before to let you know the exact pick up time - if, like me, you have... More

Terry, the tour operator was a wonderful host. He picked us up from the cruise center. Talk about friendly and patient. Our disembarkation was held up but he waited patiently for us and brightened up our day. His sharing throughout the tour was top-notch. We learned so much about the Seattle area especially about Starbucks! The highlight of our tour... More

My wife and I have just returned from our Shutter Tours tour of the Falls and the City. As first time visitors to Seattle we hoped this tour would give us an oversight of the city - it way exceeded our expectations - it was absolutely first class. Terry is an excellent tour guide and plainly very proud of his... More

We went on the Snoqualmie Falls and City Tour. Terry is a nice guy and provided a lot of information on Seattle, history and current, as well as helpful tips on taking good photos. The photo tips were appropriate to the type of cameras and degree of interest of the group - in other words, it was not overdone and... More

I'm one of those tourists that sticks to the familiar and the easily accessible. I don't rent cars, generally and I stick close to home base. Shutter Tours offers an easy way to get out of the downtown Seattle area and out to see sights I would not otherwise have seen with the Snoqualmie Falls and City tour. Terry (our... More
