Full description

See the sights of Seattle on a guided minibus tour. Hear interesting anecdotes and discover little known gems within the unique neighborhoods that make Seattle such a special place to live.

Climb aboard the climate-controlled minibus 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 that are thrown at the market. 

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 country. 

Get an up-close view of side-by-side mega-sports arenas by 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 distinctive Space Needle, Chihuly Garden and Glass, and the Experience Music Project Museum.

Go to the Kerry Park viewpoint atop Queen Anne Hill for a 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 Elliot Bays meets the waters of Lake Union and Washington.

    Our guide for this tour was called DC. It was an awesome and unforgettable experience. DC was uber knowledgeable, patient and always went the extra mile to satisfy everyone’s needs/wants. Within the 3-hour long tour, he ensured that no stones were left unturned and in detail explained to us clearly and patiently about each and every spot/destination we were introduced to. This is one of the best tours we’ve ever experienced. Thanks, DC, for a memorable and wonderful tour.

    This tour was a great way to get to know the city of Seattle. I learned as much as I could want to about the city. The tour guide was prompt and very good about making sure our questions were answered. He took pictures of all families at our stops. He was very knowledgeable and excited to share information about the city.

    I had foot surgery about a month ago and knew I would have a difficult time walking around Seattle. I wanted to see as much of the city as I could in the 21/2 days I was here and this tour took me to so many parts of the city. DC, our tour guide was so knowledgeable. He gave us great insight into both the history of Seattle and it's modern day activities. I'm so glad I took this tour. I highly recommend it.
