Amy was our guide for this 2 hour venture.....although "off season" (late September), the market was pretty active and she chose to use the little radio receiver devices. This proved to be a great idea because u could hear hear her even when standing 10-15 feet away - never had to strain to understand what was going on. The food on the tour was fresh, tasty, and varied (seafood to chowder to flatbread and more!). The vendors were prepared for our group of 5 and we never had to wait for the samples.
The market is vast and using this tour to gain orientation was perfect. Learning about the history of the place was enlightening and made it more interesting. Post-tour we spent another couple of hours on our own to savor more of the sights, sounds, and aromas!

Enjoyed the tour with Amy very much. We had originally been booked on the morning tour, but a few days before, the owner contacted me about a problem with the scheduled event. She offered other times and dates or to refund my fees. We chose the afternoon tour,v which actually worked better.

Amy was a great tour guide. She set an easy pace, watched over us, and kept us fed and entertained. She easily accommodated a gluten-free guest and guests who needed to rest occasionally. I definitely recommend Seattle Bites and Amy!

My wife and I had just jumped off of an Alaskan cruise, checked into the hotel and then hooked up with Amy for our tour. What a wonderful way to explore the Market! The various foods that we sampled were wonderful and varied. All were of a good sample size. The stories and background that Amy gave us that went along with the merchant and his/her foods painted a better picture of the overall Market scene.
Amy did a wonderful job and that always makes things better! This tour is a great way to get indoctrinated into the Market, its history, and its vendors. Top notch!

My husband and I has the BEST time on our tour of Pike Place with Amy. She is incredibly knowledgeable about the market! She gave us great historical insight in addition to sharing detailed information about current vendors. Her relationship with the market vendors is incredibly friendly and adds an intimate aspect to the tour. The food was AMAZING! We highly recommend Seattle Bites!

Amy is a first class tour guide who gives a wonderful tour of Pike Place Market. She is very knowledgeable about the history and food of the Seattle area. She has a great friendship with the many food venders we visited. The Market was just buzzing with excitement as we walked through the streets. Our tummies were filled by the end of the tour with the most delicious variety of foods. Amy stressed how the community and Pike Place Market really work together to make the Seattle area a wonderful place to shop, live and work! Just a bubbling, fun Day!
