“Great Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

You must take this tour if you are visiting the Market. Emily was great. She is very knowledgeable about the history and the area. The tour started on time, and with the headphones you could hear everything she was talking about as we went thru the market. We had such a great time the tour could have been longer. The tour was well organized and the email instruction about meeting was perfect. Really enjoyable experience. Make this a must do when you visit.

“Seattle - Public Market Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

The tour was a wonderful introduction to the rich history and exciting political roots of Seattle's Public Market. It gave us a much better idea of what we wanted to explore on our own after the tour and a better understanding of Seattle's past. Our guide clearly cares deeply, and was extremely knowledgeable, about the Market and it's associated charities, which added to our enjoyment of the tour.

“Public Market Tour of Seattle's Pike Place Market”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Even for a local, I was pleasantly surprised at all the things I didn't know about the market. Our guide, Tyler did a great job of informing and entertaining. Although crowded, the market is clean and colorful. The walking tour was well worth the price.
