Seattle, WA, USA
When your cruise ship docks in Seattle, meet your guide upon pickup by private transport. Start your sightseeing shore excursion with a scenic drive into the city and hear interesting commentary about Seattle’s history, architecture and cultural landscape along the way.

You’ll visit multiple neighborhoods and view must-see landmarks throughout the 3-hour private tour, which lets you explore a few areas more in-depth on foot. Ride through the Chinatown-International District and meander past the charming boutiques and cafes of historic Pioneer Square.

Continue to Belltown to soak up the bustling atmosphere of Pike Place Market, Seattle's original public market, where you’ll find vendors specializing in locally sourced produce, artisanal foods and unique crafts. Nearby, grab a coffee at the original Starbucks (own expense) and pop into some local art galleries if you wish.

Next up is the Space Needle, where you can hop out of your vehicle and purchase an admission ticket to the top-floor observatory for an unforgettable vista of the Seattle skyline, Puget Sound, Mt Rainier, the Cascade Mountains, and the Olympic Mountains.

Your guide treats you to additional city views at Queen Anne Hill before continuing on to the Ballard Locks (formally known as the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks). Learn about the engineering feats behind this complex of locks linking Puget Sound with Lake Union and Lake Washington.

Don’t miss Safeco Stadium, Century Link Field, Olympic Sculpture Park, Fisherman's Terminal and the Elliot Bay waterfront before returning to the cruise terminal to end your tour.
