- Walking Food Tour
Join us on an intimate guided food tour of the world-famous Pike Place Market as we explore the back alleys, narrow corridors, and tiny storefronts in search of our favorite places.
Seattle is a cultural mecca where technology, nature, and the arts intersect to produce a rich tapestry of experiences. We’ve curated the quintessential Seattle experience into a three-hour intimate tour that explores the many forces that have shaped the city from past to present. Your friendly guide keeps you entertained and informed with stories, facts, favorite places, and so much more. Take this sightseeing tour early on in your Seattle visit in order to benefit from all the information and recommendations!
The city tour begins in Seattle’s bustling downtown core, highlighting the Pike Place Market, Seattle Art Museum, Shopping District, and the world’s first Starbucks.
Seattle’s original downtown is now a 35-square-block historic district filled with turn-of-the-century Romanesque architecture, art galleries, and trendy restaurants, all of which border the sports stadiums for the Seahawks, Sounders, and Mariners.
Home to Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Korean, Cambodian, and Hmong communities, this neighborhood continues to play a role in Seattle’s multicultural identity. Seattle’s waterfront includes the aquarium, Ferris wheel, classic seafood restaurants, funky souvenir shops, historic piers, and ferry and water taxi terminals.
The Seattle Center is a 72-acre urban park and is the site of the 1962 World’s Fair. It’s the home of the Space Needle, Paul Allen’s Experience Music Project, Dale Chihuly’s Garden and Glass exhibition, and the Pacific Science Center.
Kerry Park on Queen Anne Hill provides a dramatic panoramic photo opportunity of Seattle’s skyline. You also view the spectacular architecture and aesthetic in one of the city’s more exclusive, old-money neighborhoods.
Opened in 1917, the lock system and ship canal connects the fresh water of lakes Union and Washington with the salt water of the Pacific in Puget Sound. It’s a popular destination for watching boats navigating between the two waterways. It also features a fish ladder for observing the seasonal migration of salmon.
Fremont neighborhood, famous for its outdoor art and nude bicyclists in the Summer Solstice parade, is also a microcosm of the challenges Seattle faces as it grapples with growth. This once-quirky bohemian artist colony is now transforming into a high-tech powerhouse with offices for Google, Tableau, and Adobe while remaining true to its artsy roots.
We take the health of our guests and our guides very seriously. We’re carefully following evolving COVID-19 health and safety recommendations set forth by our local and state Public Health authorities, and the CDC. Until further notice, we require that masks are worn (covering both the mouth AND nose) at all times on tours. We will also adhere to social distancing protocols.
We strive to create an experience that guests will enjoy and remember – and, in these times, where everyone will also feel safe. If anyone arrives on tour without a mask, or displays incorrect mask usage during the tour, they will be asked to leave in order to protect the safety of the group. Similarly, we ask that all guests adhere to the social distance guidelines that our guides set forth while on tour to ensure that everyone has a safe experience. Thank you!
