Great tour of the Seattle and area neighborhoods. Our guide was super knowledgeable of the sights and was eager to share with us. The microphone worked well and all could hear. Mini bus very comfortable with large clean windows. Umbrellas were available for the brief shower. Stopped at all stops listed and able to view the many great blue herons feeding their young high in the tree tops. James is an asset to your company!

Gorgeous views and iconic art at two Seattle landmarks. Redeem GYG voucher at the Space Needle, and they'll print your tickets to both. Don't miss the rotating floor for more amazing views.
