Once we got started the tour was very informative. Adam made it very fun. However, there was some mixup in the pickup. Also, we went to the Chocolate store ? and it was closed due to a company event. I think the company should have alerted the tour company and guide of that closure. No worries, Adam was still very good!

This was a pre-cruise tour that picked you up at your hotel with your luggage, toured you through Seattle and left you off at your ship with your luggage. A wonderful way to see Seattle prior to a cruise. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, funny and a good guy to spend a few hours with. We know more about Seattle because of him and a good time learning. We highly recommend this tour if your are going to take a cruise.

Horrible! A waste of money. For example, we didn't stop at Pike Place which would have been preferred over stopping to see the lake and tour the neighborhood homes. We were also told that we would get to see the needle. Nada! This was a complete waste of money. Either be honest with your customer or change the tour to meet what is promised! Gail S.

Great overview of Seattle. We wanted to use our time effectively and end with our transfer to the cruise terminal. On the day we took the tour, they combined the Pre-cruise with the normal city tour. It worked out very well.

The tour was OK, I guess it would have been better if our tour guide was a little more presentable. He looked like he have just rolled out of bed.
