Excursion Overview

Welcome to Seattle!

Explore this cultural nerve center with a local guide on our curated 3-hour city tour. Hop on the mini-coach and you will learn all about the history, culture, and stories that have built this iconic Washington port. Once you finish your one of a kind city tour you will have enough information and recommendations to pass as a local!

Your tour will begin in downtown Seattle highlighting the longest operating farmer's market in the US the Pike Place Market, Fremont neighborhood, and the world's first Starbucks coffee shop.

After downtown you will head over to Pioneer Place, a 35 block historical district filled with art galleries, romanesque architecture, and trendy restaurants that surround the famous sports stadiums for the Seahawks, Sounders, and Mariners!

Moving on to Seattle's waterfront and home to our Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean, Cambodian, and Hmong communities, our international district continues to play the main role in Seattle's multicultural identity. Check out the Ferris wheel, aquarium, popular seafood restaurants, unique souvenir shops, and our historic piers.

Home to the iconic Space Needle, you will finally make your way to the Seattle Center and Kerry Park viewpoint. Make sure to snap a picture before you check out Paul Allen's Experience Music Project (EMP), Dale Chihuly's Garden and Glass exhibition, and the Pacific Science Center.

Finally, you will arrive at the Ballard Locks where the freshwater of lake Union and Washington meet with the saltwater of the Pacific Ocean. View the most popular place in town to view the boats navigate the waterways and if you're lucky enough to visit during the salmon spawning season, watch the seasonal migration with the featured fish ladder.

We had an excellent tour guide and saw more of the city and learned more of the city than we would on our own. It was also a great bang for your buck!
