We couldn't believe all we got to see in one day. Lance was terrific! Learned tons of history but never felt rushed. a must for first timers.
We had a great tour guide in Gary. He was very knowledgeable and friendly. If you've not been to Seattle, this is a great tour to take.
Very Excellent Tour and Guide (Dave). We only had one day in Seattle and this tour did a fantastic job of providing the most comprehensive taste of what Seattle had to offer. The amount of time at each stop was very well allotted. Highly recommend for those with limited time in Seattle.
This tour was perfect. Nice small (13) group, knowledgeable driver, lots of time to explore sights of Seattle and get a flavor of the city.. ideal for a one day visit. Large buses take too long to load and unload so our bus size helped maximize our town.
This was a great experience for my family and friends. Several family members were on canes and could not walk long distances. The bus was comfortable and our tour guide very knowledgeable of the city. The guide was helpful and courteous.
This tour was excellent. Betsy was wonderful, knowledgeable and friendly. She communicated clearly, with extra special care to her passengers. If you have one day before cruising I would recommend this tour. The highlight was visiting the Space Needle and the Public Market place. We just needed an extra hour!
This was an awesome tour with an even awesome tour guide. The view were extraordinary on this day so looking at Mt. Ranier was very clear. Loved the Space needle but I think about all I liked the little things I saw like hearing about the history of The Panama Hotel or finding out about the Stalin statue and why it was there. Pikes Place is always awesome. Loved every minute of the tour.
We had a wonderful tour, when we were picked up at a hotel, after getting off of our 14 day cruise,Our driver and tour director was fantastic...His name was Gary,. .he knew everything about Seattle , non stop...was very friendly and kind...Our first stop was the Space Needle,. and it was great, we were there for about 1 hour....we toured around after then he bought us to the Pike Place Market...and we ate lunch there....It was amazing ...very busy...we were there for 2 hours....then Gary took us to Several places to take pictures...Then we finally took us back to our hotel...which was near the airport.....It was a great Tour.....
Very informative. Ron was very knowledgeable. Wished that Chihuli tour was included in tour along with the space needle. Enjoyed going through the different neighborhoods on the way to Ballard Locks. Wished we spent more time there.
Really enjoyed the tour! Visited the Space Needle + More. Our tour guide was Gary and he was outstanding! Very knowledgable of this beautiful city. I highly recommend taking the tour.
Our driver and guide, Lance, did a fantastic job. Talking about different places, history of different things, maneuvering through busy Seattle traffic, giving us the best tour ever. Great job, Lance!
Dave was a terrific guide and driver during a thorough and fun six hour tour of Seattle and its surroundings. Dave was very knowledgeable.
Hade a great time Daniel the tour guy was awesome. Very well worth the money and time. Highly recommend it.
The tour was fantastic. Our guide Daniel was very knowledgeable and very entertaining. This was time and money well spent.
This tour was amazing! I really got a solid sense of the city, and saw so much of it within a few hours! The tour's structure is great, too---there is ample time to explore major attractions, as well as a thorough viewing of neighborhoods outside of downtown. Mark, our guide, was wonderful--very personable and very knowledgeable, too. I learned so much of the city's histories from him.
great tour and our guide, Lance was terrific. would highly recommend.he was very interactive and informative
Our friendly tour guide gave us a taste of this busy and congested city. His knowledge and stories of the area kept us entertained during traffic delays.
Recommended. We had an excellent tour guide that was knowledgeable and fun. He knew to hit the Space Needle first to avoid massive crowds. If you have limited time and want to check out the Seattle with interesting facts, go for it!
Our tour was a great way to be introduced to Seattle for the first time. Our tour guide, Gary Taylor, was so informative. He was the best. He gave us so much history of the city. He was funny and helpful. Well worth the price.
