Would absolutely recommend to anyone visiting the city. Gary, our guide, was fantastic and super knowledgeable. We were lucky in having a smaller group (8 of us) and Gary made us feel super welcome and showed off some of his singing talents! All in all, we had a great time and a brilliant tour guide!

Our tour guide Steve is very informative, friendly and helpful certainly enjoyed the tour. 3 hours doesnt feel enough, needs more stops to be able to take the time for photos and absorb the sceneries. Certainly tie it in with combine tickets for the seattle space needle and the glass garden. A must see.

There was so much information packed into this tour. Of course we visited iconic spots in Seattle places but our tour guide also pointed out some places off the beaten path which I always appreciate when visiting a new city. This is a great way to see Seattle or as a starting point for your own exploration of the city. I highly recommend it!
