The tour guide really knew his history and information about Seattle. We learned a lot about the city and a few cheap/free places to go for the rest of our stay. I would definitely recommend this tour to others.

We did two walking tours with Jake. He knew his stuff and delivered it with a great sense of fun. He was on time and went at a pace that was comfortable for all. He gave us a great insight to Seattle and also advice on places to visit. Couldn't recommend him highly enough. Thank you Jake.

We met our guide who was on time and waving his identifying flag at the intersection of Virginia and Western. He was both knowledgable and humorous. He led us through the maze of the market, making a few stops for vendor samples and arranging for the "fish toss." With a limit of 15 in a group, reservations are highly recommended.... More

Jake did a great job in introducing us to Seattle. We did both tours in one day; a lot of walking. Jake knows his stuff and enjoys what he is doing. Would highly recommend these tours. If you can, do it in two days. Thank you Jake!

Because this is walking tour, we had the chance to thoroughly view the sites and ask questions "on the spot". Our Tour Guide balanced the pace of the tour, questions from the group, and information delivery like a true professional. Definitly worth it!

Jake is an excellent guide. We went on both tours and had a great time. In addition to the history and interesting trivia, he gave us great tips on making the most of our visit to Seattle. He's enthusiastic, informative and professional.

Thanks to Jake for a fascinating and insightful walking tour. This was our first visit to Seattle and you could tell how much he loves and knows about his city. Be sure to do this tour as soon as you get to the city as it gives a great framework for your visit.

Both tours were excellent, very easy pace and Jake is so informative of everything in Seattle and so funny. We learned so much about the city of Seattle and especially Pike Place Market. We would recommend both of these tours to everyone. The tours are free and well worth it, please tip Jake well :)

I took my 2 daughters (9, 12) on this tour. Not sure if they would like it, but half way through they told me they loved it. Jake was very informative and made history very interesting. Thank you.
