What people are saying about Seattle

Amazing time in the space needle. Great views and complimentary print at home souvenir photos. Food was reasonable value and great quality, but definitely ‘light bites’ Chihuly garden and glass is a must see for anyone who is artistically inclined thousands of beautiful and breath taking pieces of blown glass included in the exhibit and the guided tour added many valuable insights to the collections more prominent pieces. Watching a live demonstration of glass blowing practices was a real treat and the artists were happy to answer any questions after the show- they even sell these demonstration pieces in the space needle gift shop! Ending in the theatre the documentaries give a good indication to the type of artist Dale Chihuly is and will transform the way you look at the pieces in the showcase. 10/10 space needle and Chihuly glass&garden is a must for any tourist

I live in Woodinville and have come to the Space Needle many times over the past 30 years with many out of town guests. This was the first time without coming for a breakfast, lunch or dinner at the restaurant. I did miss it very much but the view is still spectacular and the viewing platforms are very, very well done.

I loved that we were able to book last minute. It was awesome because it was a private tour. Our tour guide didn’t rush us and asked us what we wanted to do because there were only four of us on the tour. It was wonderful!

Fantastic fantastic fantastic! Silas was a great tour guide. He found a great balance of history, food and culture. It was a wonderful (re)introduction to the market!

Ivy was awesome! Great way to experience Pike Place Market
