During your Taste of Pike Place, you will be guided deep into the heart of this lovely place, for a taste of some of the best parts of the market. Your guide will share with you the legends and history of the colorful characters who have walked the hallways and hawked their wares.

If you enjoy history trivia and good food, then this is the tour for you. Our guide Chip was very knowledgeable and very likeable as far as tour guides go. I was hoping for food tastings that were more uncommon, but these are pretty standard fares. Don't get me wrong, they are from great purveyors in the Market, but I think next time I would sign up for chef-led tour instead.

Dani was great: funny, thorough and engaging. Food was amazing as expected. We had samples from 9 stalls, and it's not that we couldn't find these places by ourselves, but 2 critical advantages to a guided tour: first, you get to skip the lines, where in some places it looked like a line of 60+ minutes; Second, you get a sample size of each dish which is the only bearable way to visit 9 different stalls. Plus - you get the stories behind and some history. We were a family with 1 vegetarian and 3 kids ages 7, 12 and 14, and all 5 of us loved it! Would totally recommend!

Excellent tour! There is so much more to Pike Place Market than flying fish! It was so interesting to learn about the history of the market and what they are doing to support their community today. Plus the food was fantastic - we received 9 samples with a variety of offerings, skipped the lines, and left full!
