“Fun in a bus with Dan!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Our tourguide and busdriver was a fun guy and took care of our group (we filled the bus with 11 kidsand 11 adults. The kids sang and made the tour more fun overall.
Our tourguide took us to the chocolatiers where we tasted hot chili chocolate and coconut curry chocolate for the first time ever! Great stuff.
All in all, this was a fun 3 hours but I wish we could have gotten closer to the Space Needle and actually visited same. I guess it wasn't meant to be. Maybe next time...

“Boeing Tour with Tours Northwest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

The Boeing Tour is not actually a Tours Northwest tour. What they will provide to you is just a shuttle, and include the tickets to the Boeing Tour, which is not provided by Tours Northwest

The shuttle was late, about 20 minutes. However, we were right on time for the next tour.The shuttle was just ok in terms of confort and cleanness. The driver was kind and gave us some information about Seattle, Boeing and its founder. I will not talk about the tour itself, because it's not Tours Northwest' responsability. After the tour, the driver offered to take us to wherever we wanted, as long it was close to the original route back to the hotels.

I think the driver's information and willingness to take us to other points of Seattle compensated its late arrival. On the other hand, the package doesn't realy add much to the Boeing Tour. Again, it is just a shuttle there.

I would recommend this tour instead of tacking a cab. But you can drive there yourself if you have a car

“Great Tour - April 15, 2013”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

We had a great tour guide David. He was so informative about all things Seattle. We were a very small group and he did a wonderful job of showing us the whole city. We had many opportunities to take pictures. I highly recommend this tour as a starting place for your Seattle visit. David made other great suggestions for things to do and places to visit. The tour bus was clean and we had a great day. The price was very resonable. Thank you David for a job well done.

“LOVED THE TOUR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

There were 5 of us and we all loved the tour. It was so informative and we would never have seen as much of your city had we not signed up for this tour.The tour guide was great and he suggested other places for us to see which we did. We are back home again and we want to thank you very much for providing us with such an experience.
