I would highly recommend both of these tour. Jake was very knowledgeable and entertaining. It was a great way to spend 1/2 a day. We had booked the tours on a whim and they ended up being one of the highlights of our 4 week trip. It made us realise we needed way more time in Seattle. We will definitely... More

It's an amazing lesson on the history of Seattle, a city build on top of a city. The walking tour.. well, you gotta walk alot and do bring a small bottle of water. The guide is funny and very hepful on questions

This was my first trip to Seattle and it was a great experience. I loved the seafood and the scenery was spectacular. My wife and I took the harbor cruise and The World's Greatest Seattle Walking Tour. The cruise was great the waking tour was horrible.

My girlfriend and I took this tour on a Saturday at 10:30am - with Wendy as our tour guide. She was absolutely amazing and informative and I learned more than I could have imagined about Seattle and each of the neighborhoods. I am so happy we decided to do this tour - plus it was a bargain at $15/person and... More

This was a good way to kill a few hours and see some of the highlights of down town Seattle. No offence to the guide but he seemed a little uninterested, a bit like he was just going through the motions. The tour is worth going on, just not likely to be a highlight of your trip.

I did this tour with my daughter (12), another mom and her 3 kids (9,7,4). However, the 3 kids do not speak English and the mom was focused mainly on them. That said, my daughter and I really liked the tour. The tour guide knew his stuff and keep a good pace for the walk - not too fast and... More

Really enjoyed this walking tour! We covered a good amount of the downtown area and learned an entertaining mix of history and current day info (for example, how Seattle-ites really feel about Starbucks!) We had some free time to walk around Pike's Place Market too (it felt like the right amount of time, enough to look around a little, but... More
