We really enjoyed our tour. It was a nice size group with 12 people our tour guide spoke up clearly and loud enough for everyone to hear. The samples he gathered for us we're out of this world. I would recommend taking this tour to anyone heading out to Seattle

The best tour we did in Seattle. Totally a highlight of our whole vacation. Chef John is the best tour guy ever. He grows up in the Market and knows every vendor there. We learned a lot of fun history about the Market and had great food. Best part, you do not need to wait in line to get your food with this tour!
