Fishermen’s Terminal Fremont Neighborhood City Skyline Olympic Mountain Cascade Light House ........... The driver/guide is knowledgeable with great voice and clear speech
Informative but needed more.
Graeme_S, May 2024
Interesting views and anecdotes on the city with pleasant tour leader. Tour probably needed a few more photo stops and some more Seattle history.
Response from Host, May 2024
Hi Graeme, Thanks for taking the time to leave your feedback! I'm sorry we fell short of 5 stars for you. We try to be clear in the "What to Expect" portion of the listing that the tour makes 3 stops in order to accommodate everywhere we visit in the 3 hours. We will chat with your guide to ensure they are delivering plenty of Seattle history. We appreciate the feedback!
Ron was awesome, good feel of the city
Jacqueline_C, May 2024
Great tour for first timers in Seattle. You do two longer stops at the Klondike NP and the Locks. We weren’t allowed to get off on the Fremont trolls but Ron opened up the bus door to take pictures which was nice. The Seattle view was wonderful at the view point we went to. The driver and guide Ron was fantastic!! He was informative and made it fun. Great tour that gave me a good feel of the city before going off and exploring on my own.
New Appreciation of Seattle
Cherri_F, May 2024

We had an amazing tour with Amaria our guide and tour driver. She was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and jolly who made the trip an exciting one and briefed us with all historical facts about Seattle beautifully knitting with the present times.
Fun tour to get to know the city!

Ok but not best use of my time
Stuart_H, Apr 2024
Missed not stopping at the space Needle. To much time stopping at Starbucks and chocolate store. The
Response from Host, May 2024
Thanks for your feedback, Stuart! Unfortunately the Space Needle is not a stop on any of our City Tours as it takes about 90 mins to visit the top. We start and end our tours right next to the Space Needle though, so guests can enjoy the attraction before or after the tour if they'd like.
Great tour
Heather_P, Apr 2024
Jeff was a great guide.Got to see the city in a few hours from comfort on mini bus. Also enjoyed getting to know what others or the tour had already experienced.

Premium Tour and Guide
John_W, Apr 2024
This was exactly the best way to become familiar with and learn about Seattle. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and personable. I very much enjoyed myself.
Great city tour
Jacqueline_B, Apr 2024
My experience with this tour was great from beginning to end. Due to a flight delay I missed my early morning tour so I reached out hoping to reschedule for a later time and received an immediate response honoring my request. Not only did I get my time changed I got help navigating the light rail to get to my pick up spot. Once I arrived for the tour I was greeted by Ron who was extremely personable and pleasant. He went above and beyond to make sure he accommodated our needs from snacks to tips on places to go and offered a ton of insight on the city. He made the 3 hour tour one to remember. I would definitely recommend this excursion!
Must Go
Esmeralda_R, Apr 2024
I loved that I took this tour first thing upon getting to Seattle. It gave me a lay of the land so to speak. Then I went back to where I wanted to explore further. I got to see so many spots in the city without contending with being lost, etc. Such a fun and educational tour!
It was a very comprehensive and educational tour!I love it😊
