Absolutely worth the money. Driver was very knowledgeable and so informative. Don't miss this one if you're in Seattle!
Extremely knowledgeable and passionate guide. This 3 hour tour went slightly over time due to traffic and amount of content to cover. Information shared by our guide about Seattle was interesting and enlightening. Well worth the time and cost. Small group tour is great. For spots we ran out of time to see eg. Troll under the bridge because of Friday afternoon traffic, our guide gave us directions and suggested other similar attractions to visit. Will definitely recommend this tour to friends.
My parents also used the same company to tour the Boeing Factory and had a positive experience.
Our guide Leila was wonderful - very informative, fantastic presenter, great sense of humour and an excellent driver. We enjoyed the tour very much.
This is what you want to do on your first day in Seattle. It's a small bus tour where you go through all important parts of the city, and the guide tells you about its history, landmarks, attractions, famous people, etc. Our guide was fun and knowledgeable, we loved the whole thing, and it made it easier to plan the rest of our vacation.
Our tour-guides James and Layla are very friendly and knowledgeable of Seattle, and kept us interested of the sites we visited throughout the entire 3 hours. The best part is the view of Ballard Locks and Fish Ladder. We were lucky the weather was beautiful and get a good orientation of the Emerald City with this tour.
