          Great tour for first time visitors to Seattle
          Erica is an excellent tour guide. Having been a lifelong resident of the area her local knowledge of Seattle added a lot to the tour. We would highly recommend anyone coming to Seattle for the first time to take this tour.

          The best of Mt Rainier.
          Our tour guide Ken made the experience most enjoyable with his local knowledge of the Seattle and Mt Rainier area. This tour is recommended. Unfortunately Ken does not work on weekends.

          Amazing Daytrip
          Our tour guide, Ranger Ron, was simply great! He looked after us perfectly throughout the day, was very courteous & funny, showed us great places and told us a lot about them and was very helpful when it came to photos. He took plenty of breaks to go to the toilet and provided water. A really great day with lots of wonderful impressions. Absolutely recommendable a tour with him!

          Great experience
          Bryan was wonderfully informative and funny. The tour has given us a much greater appreciation of the history and current items of interest than we would have gotten on our own. We also appreciated the clean, air conditioned bus. Nice stops, plenty of restroom breaks. An overall great experience. Highly recommend.

          Awesome Seattle Tour
          Ron, our tour guide was phenomenal. He was full of knowledge about the history of Seattle and my family and I learned a lot. Ron has a colorful personality in a good way and engaged the group into participation. The 3-Hour experience was more than what I expected.

          We Love Ken!
          Fantastic one day tour! Excellent travel option if you have a day to spare. Don’t worry about walking too much! Our tour guide Ken, had options for folks that didn’t wanna move a ton & true explorers! He answered all our questions since we were traveling to the west coast for the first time. He was very knowledgeable of the old growth ecosystem that was Mt. Rainier. He also added his own touches & flair of history & dry humor! Additionally, he adequately accommodated international travelers that were on the bus with us!

          This tour was the best thing we did in Seattle and we are so lucky to have had Steve as our tour guide!
          We did this tour on our first day in Seattle and it was the perfect introduction to the city and three hours is just the right amount of time. The city is very spread out and we would never have been able to see all the sights and neighborhoods on our own. Our driver and tour guide, Steve, was FABULOUS!!!!! He talked the whole time - in a good way! - giving us information about the sights we were seeing and as well as lots of history and lore. We enjoyed three more days in Seattle, and doing this tour first gave us lots of ideas about how to spend the rest of our time, and we were constantly referring back to what we learned from Steve.

          Great trip!
          Ron was an exceptional tour guide! 3 of us booked this trip last minute and we are glad we did. We learned way more than expected about geology and Mount Rainier thanks to Ron. Even though it was a rainy day we still had a great time. Well worth it.

          Seattle in a nutshell
          Small group tour with very professional and knowledgeable guide who was able to answer all of the questions put to her. We got a very good overview of greater Seattle. Excellent tour to get an impression of Seattle.

        This tour was wonderful- they show you so much of Seattle when you’re only in town for a short amount of time. Our tour guide, Avery, was fantastic! He told us so much about all the sites we were seeing and answered any questions that we had. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to see Seattle prior to departing on a cruise.

        What a great way to spend a few hours exploring Seattle! We had a very small 6 person group on 7/1 Our guide was amazing and funny and a huge Star Wars fan. He was also kind enough to drop us off at the ship before the main drop off.
