The Grey Line of Seattle meet are needs. My wife and I had never visited Seattle and were there for just one day. Having had great experiences with hop on and hop off bus tours in other cities we thought that this would be a good way off seeing a good part of the city in one day. There are 8 stops covering the major attractions and close to the major hotels. Space Needle, Olympic Sculture Park, Bell Street Pier 66, Tillicom Village (Pier 56), Pioneer Square, Pike Place, Shopping District and Belltown (Warwick Hotel). The loop takes about an hour. I suggest that you ride the full route first. Take note of the stops since they sometimes are not marked. Sit on top and take pictures and listen to the imformative information given about the city. After a full loop decide where you want to start and jump off. A two day pass cost about $31 and the bus runs from 9am to 6 pm, May through October. They say that the bus arrives at it's stops every 30 minutes. Well our experience is that it arrives sometimes sooner, sometimes later. Some stops can be easily walked so you do not have to wait for the bus and I suggest you do not. If you are a young physically fit person, you could possibly walk the entire route. At 63 I decided to ride the bus although I might have walked it and left myself little time at the stops and physically worn down. A further suggestion is to combine the bus with a City Pass, it saves you a lot of money and you can see so much more. My biggest regret is that it was a ttight loop and did not include some neighborhoods like Queen Anne and Capitol Hill.
