Our guide was amazing and knew lots of history and interesting stories. She was so fun and friendly. I would highly recommend this tour. I learned so much about the market and tried so many foods. The chowder was so yummy! I have never tried white truffles or pistachio sauce-delicious!!!

I was originally going to sign up for the chef guided tour but decided to go with this one because it would include more history, and I’m so glad I did. It was so packed with food and stories and history - I loved it! Our guide Lucky was the best! He was so extremely knowledgeable, personable, and informative. He has years of experience as a tour guide. He said he does it because he loves it - and it shows. He has a deep knowledge of the entire city of Seattle. Afterwards he said we could call or text with any questions and he would be happy to answer questions or give recommendations. I was the only tourist in the group so that was great for me. Like I said, he was truly the best.

I wrote a review on TripAdvisor where I found the tour and purchased the tickets ...we had a absolutely awesome time with Melissa as our guide plus we had a terrific group! Melissa is so knowledgeable of the Market’s history and the family stories of many of the vendors we visited! The samples were abundant and super yummy! This experience was a highlight of our Seattle adventure, thanks Melissa!
