Today we, the family of four, spent a couple of hours on a wonderful, fun and informative Fremont Tour. Our quirky guide, Rocket Man SH, drew us into the amazing world of Fremont, its public art, some politics and playful citizenship. He somehow managed to even involve our 10-year old, who grudgingly went on the tour, and who declared in... More

Fremont is a very interesting area, and you will be amazed at what you see there. We had a "fairy godmother" who led the tour, complete with her kilt-clad husband taking photos. You get to see the Fremont Troll and so many other things, this is not to be missed (but I do not think children would enjoy it).

This tour is a true Seattle must. You can't fully appreciate Seattle without hearing the rich history and seeing the creative spirit alive in Fremont. The tour was entertaining and informative. My sons (12 and 8) were hesitant when I booked, but listed this as one of their favorite outings. Give yourself time for dinner in the area afterwards -... More

It was an awesome tour!! It's a very engaging tour, you're not just listening to the tour guide like on your typical tour. Street passersby join in for fun, frolic and good laughs. I think if it wasn't for this tour wouldn't have ventured to Fremont on my own, even though when driving thru I had told myself to explore... More

Purchased a livingsocial deal for this tour. Took some friends from out of state. Fremont has a reputation for being--just a little different--and so is the tour. The tour's website promises "a mix of public sculpture and improvisational street theater." Our experience was more of an "arts walk" with a sprinkling of public interaction/improvisation. I would not classify it as... More

My sister and I had so much fun with Rocket Man as our tour guide. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Seattle. Get out of downtown and explore the neighborhoods!

Our tourgude, RocketMan, was a bit (actually quite) self-promoting, stopping some strangers along the way to become "involved" with our group and the artistic and surreal experience of street art. Hey! Pay your $20, that's what I say! RocketMan (don't know his real name, but it appears he may own this tour group) comes off as a bit pompous and... More

My partner and I took our grandaughter on the Fremont Tour when she was visiting from Minnesota. It was a perfect sunny day, and we all had a fun time. Our tour guide, Rocket Man, was excellent and made the experience an excellent one.

Even for a local, this is just fun! If you have ever been a Patches Pal, have ever waited for the Interurban, or just want some irreverent commentary on the quirky community that is Fremont, give it a try. Bring the camera, the under-the-bridge view is beautiful. And that is pointing away from the Volkswagen eating troll.
