My wife and I had one day in Seattle on our way back home from Alaska and wanted a good half day tour that would give us a sense of the culture of the city not just the tourist highlights. We took the Shutter Tours Snoqualmie Falls and City Tour and it was exactly what we hoped for. Our host,... More

Wonderful tour with Terry, just 2 of us for the journey, and it was well planned and informative. Excellent tips on photography, snacks and water on offer, nice calm leisurely pace, and a great way to see a wee bit of what Seattle has to offer, highly recommended. Thanks Terry..............Linda.

I took my mom for a weekend visit to Seattle last December. It was our first time visit to the city and we had no idea of the places to go. I love photography and didn't have the time to look up and research about photo spots in the area. We took shutter tours and even days and weeks prior... More

A fantastic way to see a little bit of Seattle. The tour was done at a leisurely pace with no time pressure. Terry was very informative about Seattle with helpful photography tips. Providing water & snacks was a nice touch. Recommend this tour.

It was a very chill tour. We went to a few places that were located away from walking distance within Seattle downtown. Terry was our guide who was very knowledgable and patient. He was very into photography and taught us many useful tips on taking our own photos. We took our time visiting the places on the schedule and we... More

We had a short weekend in Seattle and wanted a quick tour to hit some highlights. Very glad we chose this one. Terry was awesome. Very accommodating, full of information and even taught us to take better pictures (tips that we continue to use). Our teenage son was even impressed which isn't easy to do!

I've visited the Seattle area many times, but this was my first professional tour. Terry and his operation, Shutter Tours, are truly top notch. I appreciate that they are a 'quality over quantity' tour operator, and their simple photography tips are a fantastic bonus that I will take with me into future adventures. Having grown up in Seattle, Terry and... More

This was a very informative and fun adventure. Our tour guide, Steve, was both entertaining and knowledgeable. I would recommend this tour to anyone that wants an overview of the city.
