About
This tour is like binge watching four episodes of Game of Thrones, minus the dragons. I do have a troll, a Space Needle, waterfall, giant spheres and an "UP" House just like the movie, sometimes it has balloons. You will get your money’s worth, and even see baby Pterodactyl in Spring and early Summer thus saving your money for Jurassic Park. I ain’t lying. I have lived in Seattle since 1986 stationed at McChord Air Force Base, before Seattle became such a tech city. Microsoft wasn't a household name, and the only Amazon we knew from Wonder Woman. Basically you will spend 4 hours having learning and laughing. Earl

Where do I start.....
Upon booking we were in constant contact with Earl, giving us updates on our tour.
Being picked up at our hotel we then embarked on a absolutely fantastic tour of Seattle and the surrounding area. Earl was a great tour guide, giving us the history and unknown insights of the areas we visited. He was professional yet very personable with a great sense of humor and positive attitude. This tour was so much more than we anticipated and we are so grateful to Earl for going the extra mile to make sure that we were beyond satisfied. If you are in Seattle and interested in touring the area, please book your tour with Puget Sound Tours and Earl.

If you are visiting Seattle, you can get a beautiful view of its skyline from Puget Sound. On a clear day, take the ferry to Bainbridge Island for lots of photo opportunities of both Seattle and Mount Ranier. The ferry to Bainbridge is just $8 round trip.

Take this tour if you want to laugh and be mildly entertained on a minibus. If you want a real tour of Seattle where you learn about the city and see its sites and neighborhoods, I would not recommend this tour. I didn’t see much of the city on the tour except did hear a lot about the worsening traffic in the city. However, Earl is definitely an interesting character.

My first 1 star, everyone will read this due to human nature to see why I received a one star, I would if I was thinking of booking, just out of curiosity. Julie if you really feel this was a one star tour, contact me and I will give you a Full Refund and I will pay for you to take another Seattle city bus tour. I know for a FACT you saw Pioneer Square, Downtown Seattle, floating houses on Lake Union, Amazon Spheres, Century Link Field, Fremont Troll, Ballard Locks, Lenin Statue in Fremont, Space Needle, Pixar Up House in Ballard, Museum of Pop Culture, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Waterfall Garden Park, Queen Anne Neighborhood, Occidental Park, Kerry Park, House Boats, Smith Tower and, complimentary bottle water, your tour was more than 2 hours, it was probably 2 hours, 25 minutes. I went everywhere I promised in my brochure. You even laughed according to your review and was entertained (mildly), however, I appreciate the review, so I will step my game up even more, if that is possible. I am NOT kidding about the refund email me at: pugetsoundtours@gmail.com and I promise to refund your money. Pick another tour if you are in Seattle and I will arrange the transport for you. My Theatre (spelled that way intentionally) professor told me if you believe the good reviews you must believe the bad also. I appreciate your review, and with all sincerity contact me for a refund! All the best. Earl

Hey Doreen, thanks for the review, that was a fun tour, I felt like Nostradamus guessing you kids age, though they are not kids anymore, but James is a man/child until he shaves. Thanks again. Earl

We spent the afternoon touring Seattle with Earl. He was knowledgeable and hit all the highlights! He was so easy to book and arrived on time at our hotel with a clean bus , soft drinks and a warm smile. Great communicator and really knows all the neighborhoods and history.

You get a locals perspective with lots of entertaining stories. We even stopped for a quick coffee and donut at a local coffee cafe and bathroom break. His stories are real and entertaining. You visit all the various neighborhoods and learn about Seattles past & present. Earl is a safe driver and so fun ! Anyone visiting Seattle should book a tour with , Earl ! We were a group of 10 adults from 23 years of age to 60 years of age and all would rate this tour, 5 plus stars !

Thank you for a memorable day and for snapping a few group photos ! We so enjoyed the beautiful scenery and stops. Don't miss this tour ....

Earl , you were right! Should have ate local. Aqua by El Gaucho was definitely below average ! Food undercooked and wouldn't recomend . Lesson learned ... listen to a local .... thank you again for a great day before we head out to Alaska. Hope you get to cruise , soon !

Small van that is quite comfortable. Get a window seat to take pictures. Or, seat up front on the passenger side. Earl the tour guide bends over backwards to ensure your tour is the best. He even offers you a bottle of ice cold water.

I can't people passing out from dehydration, that would take away from the tour! You are awesome for writing this for me, I super grateful when I get a review, because everyone believes they will write one, but with life happening at the speed of inflation, it takes a little extra effort so THANKS.

Earl picked us up at our hotel for a 2 hour tour. This is not your usual city tour. You are taken places that only a local knows. The locks, the fish ladder for the salmon and the blue heron nesting trees. Worth every penny and more. Tour was closer to 2 plus hours with drop off where you want.
Highly recommend.

I don't know you by the name BonBonD, however I am grateful for this review and of course if I saw your face or real name I would know. I appreciate the review and I wish I could see the look on people reading your review and are not sure what a fish ladder is. Thanks again. All the best. Earl
