According to the overview of the trip, it mentions what’s included and excluded. It specifically says that admission/entrance fee to the space needle was excluded!!! So looking at that we thought that the tour would stop at the space needle!! It didn’t!!!! What a disappointment! Probably the last time I use the site for booking!!

Jeff was a fantastic tour guide, personable, passionate about Seattle, very knowledgeable and several back stories that you wouldn’t normally hear about. We live in Seattle area and have gone on several tours when visitors come to town but this was the best because of Jeff!! Kudos!!

Great tour to start our visit to Seattle and get to know the city. Very knowledgeable guide. Relaxing to ride around in the small bus and admire from inside after flying in and waiting for our room.

Our tour guide was great (so sorry I don’t remember his name, older male).

Tour guide I give 5 stars to. He was informative, engaging, answered questions, and was very friendly.

The tour itself - I think is closer to 3 stars.
I felt like we drove past lots of areas, and in hindsight, I think I would have preferred less places and more stops.

For ex: we drove past the troll under the bridge. The tour guide said they don’t stop for us to get out. He pulled over and opened the door for folks who wanted ti take a picture.
Same for other attractions, drive by only.

This tour made 3 stops: one by Pioneer Square for bathroom break and pics by the small waterfall where UPS originated.

2nd stop: The Ballard locks - this was a nice stop. I had no idea Seattle at Locks so it was nice to see and explore a bit (especially since we just visited Panama Canal in April).

3rd stop: Kerry Park for the beautiful view point.

Again, it’s a good tour (not great).
I think it would have been nice to drive through less neighborhoods and make more stops like at the troll.

Thanks for joining us and leaving your review! We try to be clear in the "What to expect" section of the tour listing that this is a mostly-driving tour with the 3 short stops that you mentioned so folks know in advance before booking. We'd love to stop for more than just photos at the troll, but we try to be friendly with the neighbors in the area who've asked tour companies not to park in the area. Likewise, we would be on tour all day long if we stopped everywhere we wanted to show off! Thanks again and happy travels in the future.

Really good experience, and highly recommended. We arrived early for an Alaska cruise that sailed out of Seattle, and decided to take the 3 hour Seattle city tour. Very friendly and knowledgeable guide/driver. Felt like we saw a ton and the trip flew by! And I'm now seeing that these guys offer a Mt. Rainier tour which I would love to go on with the same crew!

The tour was a great way to get an insight into Seattle. My guide (unfortunately I don’t remember her name) was a driver for special needs kids also. She was excellent and provided a great amount of information on each of the sites. The tour was quite comprehensive and I would recommend to anyone visiting Seattle.
