The Tour guide Earl was simply Nothing but Spectacular and then some. He went over and beyond his duties as a tour guide to have made the tour exciting. He was full of knowledge about the city, not to mention he kept us all laughing. I would definitely recommend this tour to family and friends!! Thank you and will see you again the next time that I’m in town. Matt

Earl was amazing! He made the tour very fun and memorable. I was in town only for the weekend and this tour made it amazing. So much trivia information about Seattle. Great picture opportunities and thankfully the others on the bus were relax and willing to take extra time. The last stop after the vampire house (lol) had the best view and picture opportunity. I would do the tour all over again!

Best Seattle Tour and AMAZING Tour Guide
Abby_H
, Oct 2021
Earl was AMAZING!!! He made the tour fun, exciting and made us laugh the whole time. He’s hilarious and really takes the time to get to know each person on the tour. He knows the city so well and took his time on the tour, making sure to cover everything we wanted to see. It was truly the best way to see the city from a local’s perspective and get to know Seattle before fully exploring each area on your own. I highly recommend this for the start of your trip! And Earl will make you laugh your butt off; it’s a sure way to start your trip off right!
