Highly recommend the Market tour with Jake. He is engaging, enthusiastic and will share all sorts of insider tips about the neighbourhood. You also get to meet some of the vendors and get free samples of the food, not to mention discounts if you decide to buy their wares! Really informative and would like to try the Seattle 101 tour...

Booked both tours online and definetely worth it. I was travelling alone and had just one day to completely explore Seattle. This tour was the right track to do it. Jake was the perfect guide pointing out all the must see stops and telling us all the history and the unknown places you can find. He had all the attitude... More

Had a day to spend in Seattle before a week of work so what better way to get orientated than a walking tour. Joe the guide was great, kept the group interested the whole time with his great humour and fantastic knowledge of the city. He was there to get us through Seattle 101 and I think we all passed!...

booked the Seattle walking tours online. so happy that we did. we booked 2 tours Seattle 101 and the market experience. Both were top shelf. JAKE loves the history of Seattle and it shows. I learned more about Seattle by taking these tours. These tours are no charge, however I recommend great tipping. He's worth every bit of it. Thanks... More

My brother and I went on both the Market Tour (which we didn't sign up for) and the Seattle 101 tour (which we did) with Joe as our tour guide. We found him to be really funny and great at showing true highlights of Seattle. I would absolutely recommend any visitor of this city to go on either or both... More

Our tour guide was friendly, funny and very informative. Felt like we learned a lot about Seattle and the 2 hours went by fast. Would highly recommend doing early in your visit to Seattle so that you can get an overview of the points of interest so that you can explore more on your own.

We did both tours and learned a lot of Seattle! When ever you are there, at least do the Market Experience(around 1 hour)! Our guide was so funny and managed to guide us through Seattle in such a fun and winning manner. Not boring at one point and just great! You pay what you feel like, and I promise you'll... More

Had only one day in Seattle so took both the Market tour and Tour 101 with Jake. Both were excellent. He kept us entertained throughout even though it was a cold and rainy day. Lots of interesting history and local tips. Recommend the tour to everyone

Both tours were a great start to get to know Seattle. Our guide Sean was very friendly and gave us lots of information about Seattle and especially the Public Market.

Very informative pay what you wish tour. Learned a lot in a little time, including many quirks about the city. Highly recommended. Remember to ask Jake about local happy hours. He showed us an oyster place that served oysters for $0.75 each!
