We had Amanda as our tour guide. She was on time l, friendly and very knowledgable about the city We learned so much about Seattle and the area of Snoqualmie. We had been to Seattle before but decide to take a little tour and adventure out. This was a wonderful time! We didn't feel rushed and saw parts of the city we had never seen!
Preston was a wonderful guide who even helped our family take a few group pics. The falls were amazing and the snow only made it better!
Amazing beautiful experience. Highly recommended to anyone . Breathtaking views Amanda was the perfect guide.
Guide was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us all very good tips on picture taking especially composition!
Love the falls and the tour of the City, There was so much history covered and the beauty of the surrounding areas were great. Had a great time. The Tour Director did an outstanding job.
Lots of great information! We didn't feel rushed at all during the tour and Preston (our tour guide) was so helpful in taking pictures of our family! Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a short and easy tour of Seattle and Snoqualmie falls!
Amanda was our tour guide and driver. She was friendly, informative, entertaining, and helpful. She offered and took pictures for several of us on the tour. She was so personable, talking one on one with us. Great tour guide and excellent driver.
This tour was fun and exciting. Visiting Snoqualmie Falls is the draw and the falls are breathtakingly beautiful! During the drive to the Falls, our tour guide Preston, provided such a colorful picture of the city, from its origins to the current tech hub scene, and so many historical and fun facts. After the Falls, we went to Ballard Lockes to see the salmon run and then to Kerry Park for the most picturesque views of the city. To top it off Preston provides helpful tips about how to take better photos and just in case you didn't pick up on everything, he takes several photos of you at all the stops along the way. My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would recommend it to anyone visiting Seattle.
We had a wonderful tour guide in Amanda! The Snoqualmie Falls were breaktaking, and we wouldn't have known they were there, if not for this tour. The bus was a perfect size, the ride was comfortable, with snacks and water provided (a plus for my 7 year old daughter). Lots of interesting facts and stories were told on the to/from trip, Falls to City, and back. We learned a lot about Seattle, and the history of local companies like Google, Starbucks and Amazon. The Fremont tour was also super fun, with relevant stops and fun history to learn. This really takes you around the 'outskirts' to things you may not have know about to see otherwise. Great value, relaxing tour, lots to see and do--overall was a great way to spend about 1/2 a day, seeing Seattle!
The tour was great and Terry our tour guide was very pleasant as well as knowledgeable about the Seattle area so it was quite informative. Shutter tours were on time, each location visited was worth the time - would definitely recommend the tour and Shutter tours specifically.
Very informative tour to the Falls and to several points of interest around Seattle. I learned SO much about Seattle, its history, and its environs. Stops along the way were not rushed at all...I had sufficient time at each stop to take pictures and to enjoy the sights. I also enjoyed learning how to take a “better” picture prior to getting off the tour bus at each point of interest. I highly recommend this tour if you want to enjoy a beautiful bit of nature as well as learn about Seattle.
It was a beautiful site seeing the Snoqualmie Falls. It was bigger and loud in person. Thanks for our informative tour guide who is very knowledgeable with a pleasant personality.
We enjoyed every moment of this tour. I think it would be nice to have a little bit more time at the The Falls but Overall this trip was a great price and well worth our time. Thanks Everyone on the tour team for making our time that much better!
Our guide was Amanda. She was knowledgeable and a very friendly, outgoing hostess. The personal touches such as water and snacks were appreciated, as was the post cards and gum at the end. I'd recommend this trip to all.
Thoroughly recommend this trip. Our tour guide, Amanda, was very informative and helpful. This was definitely a highlight of our trip to Seattle.
There was so much to see, we ran out of time. Terry was a great tour guide.
Professional guides, plenty of time to enjoy the sites. As a solo traveler, I was thrilled that not only did I get fabulous tips on taking better photos but that the tour guides offered and took pictures of me. I loved every stop and learned so much. Definitely recommend.
we did this trip with Amanda, she really made our day with her great local knowledge and friendly manner. Nice comfy mini-bus with a small friendly group.
This was a great tour! The guide was very knowledgeable and provided many details of points of interest all along the tour. The stops were perfectly timed. There was ample opportunity to experience the falls, park, the troll under the bridge, and the lock and fish ladder. Definitely recommend!
