We decided the 3 hour city tour, which included drop off at our hotel was a great opportunity for us to see Seattle, and we couldn't check into our hotel before 3 anyway. The tour included a free drop at our hotel which was perfect (this is a savings of at least $45 that a Lyft/Uber would have cost.
Our tour driver DC (Dave) did a FANTASTIC job of giving us the story of Seattle, but he had extensive knowledge of geology and biology of the area.
Highly recommend this tour to anyone returning from a cruise who is spending at least one extra night in Seattle.

We did the Show Me Seattle tour as part of a cruise we had booked and were fortunate to have Spencer Fairbanks as our guide. I would HIGHLY recommend him as he was very knowledgeable about the area and had great stories. He went above and beyond by taking the perfect picture of us with the Space Needle in the background.

James Grindle was our tour guide. He did an excellent job of navigating us to the different areas of Seattle and explaining the history behind them.
We enjoyed this tour and wished we had booked it for the beginning of our vacation in Seattle versus the last day we spent in the city.
This tour is a must to get the most out of your vacation and learn the different areas and what there is to see in them.
We liked that the tour is kept to a minimum number of tourists, makes for a better experience.

We traditionally look for tours on our first day in a new city to acclimate ourselves and make final decisions as to what we would like to visit while there. We have never ever had a tour guide as experienced, enthusiastic, and genuinely caring as James! His knowledge of history of the area, his passion for nature and all its beauty, and his humor made the three hours absolutely fly by! We made new plans and changed some plans we originally made because of the wonderful things we learned.
Book this tour!!! You’ll be happy you did!

Two of the same tour, two different experiences. Due to my boyfriend not coming the first time we did it again. Our first driver was wonderful, knowledgeable, Hope to interesting facts and notions about the city and fun to listen. Our second trip was boring, dry, incorrect in information or at least inconsistent, drove poorly (hitting curbs and honking at ppl, over revving engine to get up hills etc) and not at all like the first trip except for the major spots. Except he didn’t hit the space needle at all, took an extraordinary long time on talking to us about salmon. I would highly recommend asking about who your driver is and what your trip will be like to understand your experience as they are not all the same. My driver on the second one was named Mark and worked as a teacher during the year. Yes he’s very knowledgeable but we didn’t get exactly what we thought we would.

This was an exceplent small group city tour. DC was cery knowledgable about Seattle’s past and present, and told some entertaining stories during our drive. We LOVED the salmon ladder, which I had no idea existed, and very much appreciated the 30 minute stop there. If you’re looking for a great city tour to hit the highlights when you first arrive, Show Me Seattle (with DC as a guide) is the company to go with!

We did this tour immediately after our Alaska Cruise. James Grindle was our
very knowledgeable and personable guide for the tour. His commentary about the architecture and history of the city and surrounding communities made the tour one of the best city tours we've taken. We highly recommend this tour and James Grindle as your guide.

This tour was really worthwhile. James, the tour guide, was very enthusiastic and articulate about the history of the city, current and future prospects. We covered a range of areas and neighborhoods. I loved visiting Ballard/Chittenden fish locks.

This was one of the best tours we have ever had, and we have been on many city tours and excursions over the years. The main reason we enjoyed it so much was our excellent tour guide, James Grindle. He was well read, incredibly well informed and full of wonderful details about Seattle, it’s history, it’s plants and wildlife, it’s architecture and current events. There were very few aspects of Seattle that he did not describe. There were so many tidbits I wanted to remember, I wish I had taken notes! He is a highly effective communicator and he had a passion for what he was doing and it showed. He made us feel like we got more than more than our money’s worth. I highly recommend this tour, especially with James. If the other guides are even half as good as he is, you won’t be disappointed.

A lovely tour with a small group. James was knowledgable, fluent and witty. We got a complete city overview and enjoyed the snippets and personal perspectives that he shared. There was some walking but it was not strenuous. Definitely worth doing.
