Seattle: Private Highlights Experience with a Local

4. Seattle: Private Highlights Experience with a Local

This experience is essential to anyone who is serious about exploring the best of Seattle. You'll be paired with guides that are passionate about the place they call home and who choose to spend their free time sharing it with like-minded travelers matched to them. Lace up your walking shoes, grab an umbrella if it looks like rain and get ready to hit the streets of Seattle with your local host. You could start by grabbing a coffee to go in one of the historic coffee houses and visit two of the city's top attractions - Pike Place Market and the Olympic Sculpture Park.  Your local host will point out the market's best arts and crafts vendors, where you can shop for distinctive gifts and souvenirs or pick-up a handmade pastry. Wander through the dark depths of the market to search out unusual specialty shops which tourists normally miss. Notice the contrast with the tacky tourist shops, fish and chips counters and mediocre, overpriced restaurants on the waterfront, where the redeeming features are the views across Elliott Bay to the Olympic Mountains. A wide sidewalk along the waterfront is perfect for strolling and admiring the Seattle Aquarium.  Next, you could wander towards the historic Pioneer Square area and stop to check out the big windows and local artwork at Zeitgeist Coffee, which is popular with Seattle's local art crowd. Your local host will recommend a few options for places where locals go to have a quick bite so you can get your energy back. For the afternoon, you may want to visit the Seattle Center, primarily known as the home of the iconic Space Needle, but also home to the Seattle Opera, the Pacific Northwest Ballet, numerous theater companies, a children's museum and a science museum. If you are interested in finding out more about the shows and exhibitions, your local host will be able to advise and help with your bookings.  Finish your day back where you started at Pike Place Market. By nightfall, the fishmongers and flower vendors will be long gone and the shops will be closed but some of the city's best restaurants and most enjoyable bars will light up. Whatever your mood or preferences, share these with your local host to get recommendations on the best places to catch an eclectic musical act, listen to Irish music or enjoy a romantic late dinner. This experience is great for all ages.

I had high expectations for the tour after reading the reviews but it still exceeded them. Will was just the right blend of laid back, informative and friendly. We got to try so many delicious foods that I would not have found on my own. He clearly has excellent relationships with the vendors. I loved this, many thanks.
