Excellent tour of Seattle
Nov 2021
Tour is a small group environment, and very family friendly. Made a couple stops to look at features closer. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. I went by myself,, but a family also joined the tour. I highly recommend this tour!

Great intro to the city.
James was a very informative and personable tour guide. Could not have asked for a better introduction to the city. There were children on our bus and he went out of his way to make it interesting for them.

Great overview tour of Seattle
Nov 2021
We had a great Seattle City Tour with DC. He was a font of knowledge about the area and made the tour fun and personable. It's mostly a drive-by tour to introduce you to the history and highlights of the city, with just three stops - at a marina (restroom stop), at the locks and at a park with an incredible view of the skyline. It was just what we needed to start out our week in Seattle.

Outstanding!
Oct 2021
We had a wonderful experience getting to see and learn about this beautiful city. Our guide, DC, was very accommodating and changed our pick-up location to our convenience. He was extremely knowledgeable about many different areas of interest - about Seattle - including marine biology, geology, history and more. This made for a very engaging educational and interesting presentation, that lasted beyond the allotted original 3hour schedule.
This was one of the best guided tours we have ever had!

Overview of Seattle
I wanted an overview of the city earlier in my trip and this fit the bill. I had thought it would be a bit more walking through spots, but it is primarily a small bus tour with stops for a bathroom break, a look at the salmon locks, and photos at Kerry Park, which has an amazing view. You’re getting background as you’re driven around. It took longer than 3 hours - no one can control traffic - so just pad your planning. A couple people were getting sick of their masks toward the end of the trip, but presumably everyone was vaccinated. The tour came to 77$. I wouldn’t do it again, but I’m glad to have done the excursion.

Excellent overview of the city

Very informative tour. One gets to know a lot about the city. Mark is a very knowledgeable tour guide with all questions answered. Mark was very kind to bring my forgotten glasses after the tour to me. Recommended for new comers to the city.

James was an excellent tour guide! He's very knowledgeable about the area's history and is willing to answer any questions from the passengers (he's also honest, he'll tell you if he doesn't know an answer, that's appreciated).
