3. Seattle: 3-Hour City Highlights Tour
See the sights of Seattle with a courteous and knowledgeable guide, and explore the city like a local. Hear interesting anecdotes and discover little known gems within the unique neighborhoods that make Seattle such a special place to live.
Climb aboard a minivan and drive through the bustling downtown retail district into Pike Place Market. See where the world's first Starbucks coffeehouse opened, and keep a look out for flying fish! Admire the diverse architectural styles as you cruise from the award-winning, ultra-modern public library to the greatest concentration of early 20th-century Romanesque architecture in the USA.
Get an up-close view of side-by-side mega-sports arenas practically across the street from the Port of Seattle. See the International District with its diverse pan-Asian community and artistic presence. Journey past King Street Station and Union Station, and continue to the waterfront before making your way past the Space Needle, Chihuly Garden and Glass, and the Experience Music Project Museum (also known as the "Museum of Pop Culture" or "MoPOP").
Go to the Kerry Park viewpoint atop Queen Anne Hill for a picture-postcard photo opportunity. On a clear day, you can see as far as Mount Rainier and experience a vista that will take your breath away. Take an interactive tour of the Ballard Locks and Fish Ladder, and learn about the miraculous lifecycle of Northwest Salmon. Watch as commercial boats navigate through the government locks, where the saltwater of Elliot Bay meets the freshwater of the Cascade Mountains, Lake Union and Washington.
Drive through the artsy neighborhood of Fremont and see the famous Fremont Troll and the statue of Vladimir Lenin from the Cold War-era Soviet Union. Then, make your way back downtown for convenient drop-offs at all downtown attractions or your hotel if you prefer.
