We took the Snoqualmie Falls and Seattle City Tour with Terry. You can tell he loves what he does. We were only in Seattle for the day so it was a nice overview. The tour group is relatively small as well which we appreciate. The Ballard locks are fascinating. We were able to see them fill up and send the... More

We took the Snoqualmie Falls and Seattle City Tour. Terry not only takes his guests to the best spots around the city of Seattle, but also gives them the photo tips to get memorable shots. We really enjoyed his informative tour, great information but also many amusing asides. It is a very good overview of Seattle and well worth the... More

Shutters tours were very good. Every thing was very well organized. They covered all the interesting places of attraction within the desigated time. There was enough time to enjoy the attractions and take photos. Our guide, Chandler, did a great job to fill us in with everything during the tour with good sense of humour. It was so much fun.

Terry not only takes his guests to the best spots around the city of Seattle, but also gives them the photo tips to get memorable shots. I really appreciated his stories of Starbucks, Amazon, Boeing, Microsoft, and Nordstroms. The impact these entrprenurial companies have made on Seattle and our world are echoed in the creativity and passion that Shutter Tours... More

I wanted a local tour company and this was it. It was small (the bus seats 13). Chandler our guide was adorable! We saw so many things and learned a ton about the city. Since it was a smaller group it was very interactive. They were so accommodating as well. I would go on this tour again.

Our experience with Terry was wonderful from our initial inquiry through booking, pickup, the tour and drop off. He put together a wonderful tour hitting all of the spots that our 3 generations wanted to see and included taking us to an excellent restaurant for lunch. We were promptly picked up at our cruise ship and the 6 of us... More

My family of 11 wanted to take a tour of Seattle while visiting for a few days after a cruise. We were very happy we chose Shutter Tours. Terry promptly picked us up right from the cruise dock all 11 of us including our 11 very heavy suitcases and an equal number of carry-ons. His van easily accommodated all of... More

Terry, our tour guide, took us on a 4.5-hour tour (longer, depending on traffic). He is very knowledgeable about the Seattle area and, in addition, offered tips on taking photos. The tour bus holds 14 passengers, but ours had 11 that day. Water is provided to stay hydrated. Pick up and drop off, if not from a local Seattle hotel,... More

I wanted a tour that would show me more of the Seattle area than just downtown. This was the perfect overview for the first day of our trip. As we drove through the downtown area, Terry (owner/guide) pointed out the local sites and told stories of Seattle's development. As we drove to Snoqualmie Falls we learned about the greater Seattle... More
