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.

The space needle was very worthwhile. My height fear wasn't bad at all. I had a beer and chips to calm me down. The shop also has a lot of selection. The clear rotating floor was a tad unnerving though. Very well run!

The history of the Space Needle, exploring at the top and beauty of Chihuly gardens can’t be beat. We will definitely do it again the next time we are in Seattle.

We loved the tour. Jeff was welcoming and very guided us and entertained us throughout the trip. Highly recommend this tour.

Unbelievable amazing views. Glass garden a must see also
