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 tour itself is well planned. But you have to keep in mind that you don't get off at all sights. We only had 4 stops in total, which I found a bit unfortunate. BUT we also had really bad weather, so it was ok. Like the day before, our guide KEN was fantastic, entertaining and informative. At least on this tour I could tell that I like the surrounding area of Seattle better than the center.

Would be better if we had time to get off, get fresh air and take more photos. Very knowledgeable guide but not able to enjoy the tour in an easygoing manner. Rushed to get on the van after a few minutes. We were rushing so much, the trip should be longer with slower driving and more breaks.
