“Pike Place Food Tour”
Reviewed 15 January 2008

I am pretty new to Seattle and had some out of town guests (from Boston, NYC and Denver) visiting in December. I was very excited to show off my new city, but one of my friends came across the best find of all - this AWESOME food tour of Pike Place!

You start out the day at a local coffee spot near the market. Over a coffee sampling and some delicious hot donuts from the market, we kicked off the beginning of our tour. We were also given whisper ear sets, so we could be a bit more discreet as we made our way through the market. Along the tour, you got to try samples from a bunch of different shops and stalls, and the whole time be impressed by the comaraderie that our guide had developed with the different people that we met in our tastings. We were especially lucky as we had the owner, Angela, as our tour guide. She was fabulous! My favorite stops were Etta's for their triple coconut cream pie, and this cheesecake place in the market. Honestly, I didn't love the cheesecake, but the hot chocolate is TO DIE FOR. Go get some now.

The tour ends at a wine co-op... perfect ending to this tour of yummy delights! I would suggest doing the tour towards the beginning of your stay, as you'll get coupons for revisiting the places you tried. I would recommend the tour to locals too, as I now know a lot more about the history of the market itself and came across some good finds like the amazing hot chocolate! We were not hungry for a while afterwards.

I know Angela is cooking up some new tours for the city, and I definitely plan on going on them in the future!

“A Great Gift”
Reviewed 7 January 2008

My husband and I received a great gift, tickets for the Savor Seattle Food Tour. Angela, our tour guide, introduced us to the wonderful variety of foods and the people who prepare and sell them at the Pike Place Market. An added attraction was getting to taste a sample at each market stand we visited. Our tickets also gave us 10% off the price of everything purchased at the stands for the whole week following the tour. We shopped for all of the food we prepared for our family while visiting Seattle. Thank you, Angela!!!!

“Taste and See Behind the Scenes at Pike Place!”
Reviewed 4 January 2008

We loved our trip to Seattle, and one of our favorite activities was our guided tour through Pike Place Market. Angela was our guide; she was knowledgeable, interesting, and friendly. We met shop owners, locals, and sampled until we were full. We learned about the market history, Seattle style and the difference between a boy eggplant and a girl eggplant. Later, we returned to the market and used what we had learned to order our favorites. We bought the best salmon ever to ship home. What a delicious learning experience!

“A MUST on your to-do list”
Reviewed 11 December 2007

The warm, sweet, buttery scent of piping hot donuts lures you as a sweet smiling face bounces down the stairs to greet you.

A very obviously intelligent woman with a sparkling personality and warm smile, Angela was an absolute delight from the moment she met us.
Intoxicating scents meet you at every step, from the orange spiced teas, to the cardamom laced hot chocolate.
A brief onslaught of fish is forgivable, just watch out for the flying swordfish!
The whole tour was like a special backstage pass with personal touches at every shop we visited. Rich in history and flavor, the tour was full of smiling faces and heartwarming history.
The market by itself is fascinating with all the confections, produce, flowers, sauces, wines, teas, vinegars, crafts and so much more. But Angela's tour made the market take on a magical ambiance.
Thank you, Angela, for a marvelous idea and enjoyable experience. I highly recommend this to everyone. It's like your own market personal shopper!
