Overview of Seattle
SherylSonnacchio

Very nice overview of Seattle. A very nice day was had by all. Disappointed we missed getting out and walking through Pikes Market. Tour would have been better if we skipped the glass shop and the chocolate shop and instead went to the market. Captain Steve is very knowledgeable and did a great job narrating and keeping us on schedule.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you did enjoy our guide and tour. Unfortunately when you have large groups it's too difficult to let everyone loose in Pike Place for extended periods of time. We always suggest that guests who would like to spend more time there ask to be dropped back off around that area after the tour and you can explore without a time limit.

Our tour guide Don was the best. The pick up and drop off were on time. We heard great stories as we passed thru Seattle neighborhoods and top sights. We had time to get off and enjoy many spots such as a city view, the Space Needle, the City Market, a totem pole and several more. Don went above and beyond to provide a memorable experience. Take this tour. You won’t be disappointed.

Informative and fun sightseeing tour of Seattle
ThomasA_R

Captain Steve picked us up from our hotel near the airport., he was a fantastic driver/guide. He really brought the city to life with the history and the stories and illustrating it all with music. We saw so much more than we would have seen driving around ourselves and it was great to leave the driving to someone who knew what he was doing. The pace of the tour was good, we stopped for coffee in the morning and a lunch stop too. We also had several other stops to look at things and stretch our legs. I really do recommend this tour.

The stop at Fred Meyers to get Starbucks was unexpected. Joe had a lot to share about his personal life but his opinions were not very positive reflections of Seattle.
icon Response from Host , May 2022
I am glad you enjoyed the unexpected stop at Starbucks. Seattle can be a hard place to live and many controversial things going on however I do apologize on behalf of our guide for putting in more of his personal opinions and not facts about Seattle.

Marc was a perfect guide while touring the city of Seattle. He arrived on time at our meeting point, and offered us a tailor-made visit, showing us the points of interest of the city and its treasures, dotted with breaks and moments when we could wander around at our own pace. His advice was invaluable.
