Departure Time

10:00 AM
The day begins with a hotel pickup by air-conditioned mini-coach before you venture to Seattle’s main attractions and landmarks in and around the city. There’s the famous Space Needle (admission included). Bring a camera to capture incredible views of Mt Rainier, the Cascade and Olympic Mountain ranges, Puget Sound and the Seattle skyline. Your knowledgeable and friendly guide will provide commentary on the city as you go.

Travel to the Lake Union area, with a number of floating homes, including the one from the movie Sleepless in Seattle. Pass by the University of Washington and find the famous public sculpture called the Fremont Troll.

Ballard Locks is one of Seattle's most popular tourist attractions, especially during the warmer months. Then there’s historic Pioneer Square, the birthplace of Seattle and the city's “first neighborhood,” with great restaurants, shops, night life and two pro sports teams. Also visit the Chinatown-International District, also known as ID, one of Seattle’s oldest neighborhoods.

Over in Belltown, the city’s most populated neighborhood, is the famous Pike Place Market, one of the oldest public farmers’ markets in the United States. Stop for lunch (own expense) and leisure and spend two hours wandering and welcoming the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of this remarkable nine-acre market. Coffee lovers will want the experience of stopping at the original Starbucks here, too. Feel free to stop and get out at any of the sites or attractions that look especially appealing.

Tour concludes at Space Needle, so guests can spend as much time as needed here. Two hours of time is recommended to get the best experience at the Space Needle. Experience breathtaking territorial views from Seattle’s iconic Space Needle. Built for the World's Fair in 1962, Seattle’s “must see” is now a “must do” following the Space Needle’s multi- million-dollar renovation. Take in views of Puget Sound to the west, framed by the snowy peaks of the Olympic Mountains. Look for stadiums home to the Seattle Seahawks and Mariners to the south, catch glimpses of the Cascade Mountains to the east, and look for the peaks of Mt. Baker and Mt. Rainier as you explore every possible viewing angle. Glide onto The Loupe, the world’s first and only rotating glass floor, for never-before-seen views of the structure and the city. Lean into our Skyrisers, the tilting glass walls on the open-air deck, and float over Seattle on one of the 24 angled vantage points. Sip and sample the Pacific Northwest’s best while savoring the thrilling views.

This tour allowed me to see all around seattle in a comfortable air conditioned bus with a very knowledgeable driver and tour guide. With periodic stops to be able to step outside stretch and see what he was talking about. Absolutly loved the stop by the fishing boats. Tour ended with tickets to the space needle and many coupons to the site seeing locations. Highly recommended to do early in your visit to seattle

Charles was funny, knowledgeable and so informative! We had only two days in Seattle and this was the best way to get in as much as possible. Not only Seattle but also close subdivisions. He gave plenty of time at each stop and told us what to look for and expect. Suggestions of places to eat, and where the bathrooms are located. We discovered that we'll have to return for at least a week!

We have been to Seattle before, but our teenage son had not. Ken made the in town narration and route interesting. The close but outside Lake Union and Ballard Locks made for a variety on tour we appreciated. We ended at Space Needle. Ken was a great tour guide. Mix of Seattle details and real things of interest. He directed us to Monorail for our solo ride back. We really enjoyed our tour!

The bus tour was superb. You'll see everything you need to see to get familiar with Seattle. The included ticket for the Space Needle was great and gets you to the front of the line--- a big deal!! Narration was informative. HOWEVER, the tour does not provide you with a return to your pickup place. It leaves you at the last stop--Space Needle. Fortunately there are PLENTY of taxis standing around.

Our tour was excellent and our guide Geoff was superb, very informative and welcoming and friendly. The office staff were amazing considering we missed our pick up and they arranged for an Uber to take us to meet the tour, very much to be congratulated in customer service and satisfaction.
