Seattle's only "Pay what you feel" tours! Join us for our distinct tours! The Market Experience- 9:30AM & Seattle 101 - 11AM. You can do both tours the same day! The Market Experience (9:30AM) is mostly indoors and out of the rain, it features an hour long whirlwind of samples and history in Pike Place Market as it's coming to life. Seattle 101, (11AM) our flagship city tour, runs 2 hours and covers the best of Seattle's essential sights, history, activities, restaurants, and money savers! Both tours meet at the corner of Western Ave & Virginia St (2000 Western Ave) at the north entrance to Pike Place Market. Look for the guide with an SFWT flag; you can't miss us. All tours run rain or shine, dress to impress Mother Nature. Contact us directly to book private group tours for your business, school, convention, or family gathering.

Jake (the guide) is fantastic: he is enthusiastic and, even if you are not coming from an English-speaking country, he is able to make you understand the most. What he tells you and what he shows you make your trip unforgettable! I have participated both "the Market tour" and the "Seattle 101" in the same morning (9:30-10:30 and 11-1 pm)... More

We took both the Market Place tour and Seattle 101 and Jake was awesome. So much information that was useful and you would not know if you were a first time visitor. We made use of some of the tips and can't wait to go back and cover the rest. Best advice: do early on so you can take advantage... More

Jake is very knowledgeable about both the past and present of the city and provides you with a historical prospective of the city while also providing insight into happy hours, tourist attractions, and the ins-and-outs of making the most of your...

Jake is an amazing guide and knows all the ins-and-outs of the city. He is really knowledgeable and not your usual tour guide. Thankyou for the amazing tips that you had given us - including the fun facts of Seattle to quirky must-eat places in the city!

Terrific walk & talk tour. I did both the market tour and the Seattle 101. I only had two days to visit and glad I came here first. Jake is very knowledgeable about both the market and Seattle history/city/foods, etc. He will take you from the yuckiest spot (gum wall) to the cleanest bathrooms in Pike's Market. Rather than wandering... More

Jake was very enthusiastic and very knowledgeable of the area. My husband and I did both his market and Seattle 101 tour, and we were not disappointed. We only had one full day to explore and it was the best way to spend it. His suggestion to grab beechers Mac and cheese with the truffle oil from down the street... More

Only two days in Seattle I had absolutely no clue about anything as I fortunately found the Seattle free walking tours! I am really great I did it - it was the perfect start. The guide was funny, enthusiastic, witty, frank - everything a good guide should be. I got very good overview of Seattle Downtown and continued exploring right... More
