“Pike Public Market Tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We took the Friday 2:00 ( Oct.18) tour and we thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. The guide was excellent -well informed, entertaining, and easy to hear. Even though we had been to the market many times, this was most worthwhile. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting or native to Washington.

“Fun and informative tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

We went on this 1-hour market tour on a whim. As locals we were sure we knew all there was about the area but we were surprised! We found out some things we hadn't heard before and also discovered some hidden spots to visit later. Our guide was knowledgeable and fun. It was a great short tour!

Good information on the market for a a local tourist. Small group for the the market tour made it easy to hear all the information given and easy to ask questions.

“Friendly & informative fun tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

The benefit of talking this tour on a Sunny and warm Autumn day goes without saying however I think I may have enjoyed this tour almost as much on a cloudy day as the tour guide was informal, approachable and easy to listen to when she explained the history of the market. The colourful characters including Nellie, the madam and brothel owner, get their story told so you get more of a sense of the history of the place instead of just facts & figures.

Enjoyed the tour and at an hour it's just the right length.

“Take the Tour first thing!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

We had three days in Seattle before our cruise to Alaska and walk Pike Place Market several times before we decided to take this tour. EMILY was amazing, fun and VERY knowledgable. I highly recommend this tour and do it first thing upon arriving in Seattle.
