Community Impact: -Our tours are designed with our communities first in mind, meaning that we will always encourage supporting local, owner-operated, and start-up businesses such as those in Pike Place Market -We reduce overcrowding in over-touristed areas and lessen negative impacts on our local businesses by visiting lesser-known spots and shops in and around the Queen Anne neighborhood -The opportunity to add in walking segments to our tours reduces our carbon footprint and impact on the environment -We strive to represent all voices in our storytelling, for example highlighting the contributions of Asian immigrants to Washington's economy and African American influence on Seattle's music and culinary scenes Summary: Seattle is a city of distinct neighborhoods, and on this four-hour driving tour, we’ll explore the top-rated places and attractions bound to give you the full Emerald City experience! An obvious but worthwhile must-do for your whirlwind tour of the city is Pike Place Market and its dizzying array of shops and restaurants that have served the city’s residents for decades. Your tour guide will be happy to recommend favorite local eats, from fresh baked goods to excellent seafood, and introduce you to the market’s most beloved tenants, from the flying fish handlers to artisanal cheese mongers. Of course, no Pike Place Market tour is complete without a stop at the famous Gum Wall and a pass by the longest running Starbucks! Once you’re loaded up with market goodies, we’ll take a short ride along the scenic waterfront, with the Puget Sound made even more beautiful by a backdrop of the Olympic Mountains on a clear day. We’ll then take our Seattle driving tour up to the Queen Anne neighborhood, known for its steep hillsides, million-dollar homes, and amazing views of the city skyline and the iconic Space Needle. Time permitting, we can head north to Fremont and its Gas Works Park, offering more views of the Space Needle with Lake Union in the foreground.
