This tour allowed me to see all around seattle in a comfortable air conditioned bus with a very knowledgeable driver and tour guide. With periodic stops to be able to step outside stretch and see what he was talking about. Absolutly loved the stop by the fishing boats. Tour ended with tickets to the space needle and many coupons to the site seeing locations. Highly recommended to do early in your visit to seattle

The driver was outstanding and very knowledgeable. I learned a lot about the city and its history. It was well worth it.

Charles was funny, knowledgeable and so informative! We had only two days in Seattle and this was the best way to get in as much as possible. Not only Seattle but also close subdivisions. He gave plenty of time at each stop and told us what to look for and expect. Suggestions of places to eat, and where the bathrooms are located. We discovered that we'll have to return for at least a week!

Lance our driver was very knowledgeable. He had so much information to share. The stories he told made the trip even more interesting. The various stops at sites and attractions were beautiful. Would definitely recommend this tour

We have been to Seattle before, but our teenage son had not. Ken made the in town narration and route interesting. The close but outside Lake Union and Ballard Locks made for a variety on tour we appreciated. We ended at Space Needle. Ken was a great tour guide. Mix of Seattle details and real things of interest. He directed us to Monorail for our solo ride back. We really enjoyed our tour!

The bus tour was superb. You'll see everything you need to see to get familiar with Seattle. The included ticket for the Space Needle was great and gets you to the front of the line--- a big deal!! Narration was informative. HOWEVER, the tour does not provide you with a return to your pickup place. It leaves you at the last stop--Space Needle. Fortunately there are PLENTY of taxis standing around.

Lance did a superior job of narrating the tour. He talked almost non-stop, yet he was a very safe and cautious driver. This tour was a highlight of our Seattle visit!

Our tour was excellent and our guide Geoff was superb, very informative and welcoming and friendly. The office staff were amazing considering we missed our pick up and they arranged for an Uber to take us to meet the tour, very much to be congratulated in customer service and satisfaction.

had a problem getting to the tour but Cool Destinations sent an Uber to pick us us up and brought us to the next stop. the driver let off his passengers and let us on and took us on a short tour so we can get caught up.very nice driver and knowledgeable, we thought we were going to get dropped off at the hotel, didn't know we had to Taxi or Uber back, that was the only down fall
