      Great citywide tour
      I highly recommend this tour for first time visitors to Seattle. You get to sights would probably never see otherwise. So many neighborhoods and a few great stops. Our tour guide Avery was so fun and knowledgeable. The wonderful hilltop park view of the Seattle skyline at the end of the tour was the cherry on top.

      felt like I was at dinner with the fam.
      Talk about the soul of Seattle. The entire time it felt as if I was chillin at dinner with the fam. He brings such a warm and pure energy to his audience. I was amazed at how much history he knew and delivered to us about in such a charming way. I can say being from out of state I felt sorta caged when I got here and afraid, but after his tour I became one with the city. I felt as if I’ved lived here for lifetimes. What a treasure he is to state of Seattle! And my god he is HILARIOUS, In a real deep way. Continue doing what you so Earl, god is using you! And please check him out you won’t regret it! I don’t lie!

      Seattle’s Best!
      Where do I start..... Upon booking we were in constant contact with Earl, giving us updates on our tour. Being picked up at our hotel we then embarked on a absolutely fantastic tour of Seattle and the surrounding area. Earl was a great tour guide, giving us the history and unknown insights of the areas we visited. He was professional yet very personable with a great sense of humor and positive attitude. This tour was so much more than we anticipated and we are so grateful to Earl for going the extra mile to make sure that we were beyond satisfied. If you are in Seattle and interested in touring the area, please book your tour with Puget Sound Tours and Earl. -Ken & Portia Johnson

      Trip Advisor did not steer us wrong!!
      Earl is a busy one-man tour operator! I read Trip Advisor reviews and decided this smaller tour was best for us. He picked us up at our hotel and then picked up at other hotels. He was funny, knowledgeable, and safe driver. It was a great introduction to Seattle. Would highly recommend him.

      Amazing tour with a great guide!
      We were contacted by Earl to finalise the pick up point for our tour the day before. Earl greeted us the next morning and what a great and friendly guy he is. His funny stories had us laughing throughout the whole tour. We had an amazing time and would 100% recommend this tour to anybody considering an informative guide of the city. You will not be disappointed!!

      Great way to get to know Seattle
      Small van that is quite comfortable. Get a window seat to take pictures. Or, seat up front on the passenger side. Earl the tour guide bends over backwards to ensure your tour is the best. He even offers you a bottle of ice cold water.

    WOW! This was our first time in Seattle and we didn’t know where to start. This is a huge city but this tour took us through all the ins and outs of the city. EARL was our tour guide and he was amazing! He’s lived here since he was stationed here in 1986 and knows what’s going on in the city now and so much of its history. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. We had a very diverse group but Earl kept us all engaged in the conversation and found places of interest for each of us!

    Earl, the tour guide, was a theatre major and part-time actor and he definitely brings his talents of entertaining to the tour. He is knowledgeable about Seattle's neighborhoods and gives his guests a great introduction to the city and its main attractions. Highly recommend starting your visit to Seattle with this tour.

    This tour is special because Earl is a people person with a lot of knowledge and history of Seattle. He will drive you around in a small group (14), point out highlights of downtown, inform you or entertain you with tidbits, and invite questions as you ride along. Earl managed, on the spot, a very, very special inside tour at the Puget Sound locks. This extended our 4-hour tour to 5 hours (without charge and no tip), then offering us 1 of 3 drop offs. As I left his bus Earl asked, “Didn’t you have a jacket on when you arrived?” Yes, but I took it off and stuffed it in my bag. Thanks for looking after me, Earl!

    Our driver/guide Earl was consistently fun and upbeat for the entire trip. He drove us through streets no charter bus would ever attempt. We never felt rushed and there were plenty of bathroom and photo stops. I would recommend this city tour to everyone wanting to get an overview of Seattle and it's various neighborhoods.

    Do you want to take a generic, boring tour of Seattle? Book with one of those other companies. Do you want an interesting, fun, hilarious tour given by someone who knows the city and will make sure you have a good time? Book this tour! Earl and Cleo (the tour bus) will take care of you. They will show you things about the city that you didn't know existed. The pace was great, we were never bored, and the time flew by. Earl provided bottled water, you can bring food on the bus, there are bathroom breaks, and there was also a stop at a donut place (your own expense). Stop reading these reviews and take the tour!

    I had a fantastic introduction to Seattle's history, architecture, and landmarks on this tour. Earl is an incredible tour guide and human being. He knows this city like the back of his hand and his enthusiasm is contagious. In addition to seeing downtown Seattle, I learned about the history of the Panama Hotel, watched boats and seals at the Ballard Locks, saw cool public art, and even had some delicious local coffee. I highly recommend Earl's tour, it's the best way to see Seattle in all her glory.

That was the 1st time I stopped twice for coffee, it also may have had something to do with people needing to pee after the first coffee stop:) Thank you some much for the review I need all the help I can get after, not touring for over a year do to COVID.

    This city tour is one of the very best tours I have ever been on. As a hotel concierge from another major city, I have taken dozens of tours in my city and other cities that I have visited. This tour ranks at the top. Earl has the perfect personality to guide visitors through Seattle; a mix of Seattle history, current events, jokes, trivia and personal stories keeps this tour engaging and fun. Highly recommend to anyone, from teenager on up.

    I had a limited amount of time in Seattle (one day) so I wanted to see as much of it as I could, this tour did not disappoint. Not only did Earl cover all of the interesting sites, he provided awesome dialog, history and humour for the entire duration of the tour. His knowledge and passion for the city was evident in how he discussed the different neighbourhoods, and I like how he talked about more recent events such as the impact of the pandemic on the city and the whole CHAZ incident. He also dropped me off at the Space Needle at the end of the tour which helped me see even more of the city before I headed back to Canada the next morning. If you are visiting Seattle and looking for a great tour with a personable and knowledgeable man, look no further than Earl and Puget Sound Tours!

    The tour guide Earl was very engaging, he was simultaneously funny and informative. I appreciated the fact, we were not crowed into his tour bus like cattle. Learned much about Queen Ann neighborhood , seems like a lovely place to live. Loved seeing house boats and the area of Boeing first test flight denoted by a simple plaque
