There was so much information packed into this tour. Of course we visited iconic spots in Seattle places but our tour guide also pointed out some places off the beaten path which I always appreciate when visiting a new city. This is a great way to see Seattle or as a starting point for your own exploration of the city. I highly recommend it!

The driver/guide was excellent and his knowledge of every stop and district made it really interesting

Tour guide did a great job at discussing the sites we drove by.
