Thank you to Jake for a great tour! I enjoyed the true crime tour. What a great opportunity to see Seattle in a different context. The tour takes you past the Kurt Cobain house among other places where true crime happened.

First, I would like to commend Jake, the owner, on her willingness to accommodate out-of-state guests. Her knowledge of the city and its history was phenomenal, she's a native to Seattle. It's a 3-hour tour without a dull moment, and with a potty break mid-way. Our bus included Seattle residents as well as an out-of-stater, and we all walked away... More

We took a visiting guest on this tour after I bought a coupon for my husband and I. It was highly entertaining. Jake has a theatrical and fun way of presenting information and she's got good information on some real Seattle crime history. My one complaint would be that she sticks to the stories from her past as an actual... More

Jake has a number of tours. We took the True Crime tour in the Capitol Hill neighborhood. My party was the only one on the particular tour. The tour took us to places not necessarily included in other tours. Jake told us stories you probably won't find in the guidebooks. If you an interest in crime and the criminals from... More

let me start by saying that Jake is amazing!!!! She is full of information, and was just fantastic. Our tour started off by the docks, Jake picked us up in the private eye van, and lucky us, we were the only 3 on her tour on Thursday 3/12/2015. We stayed quiet as we didn't want to miss anything Jake had... More

We travel a lot and I love tours. According to my family this is the best tour I have ever taken them on. Jake and her van took us all over Seattle. She doesn't tell you any ghost stories that she has talked to someone first hand that says it is true. It was amazing, and really creepy. If you... More

I have always been a fan of ghosts and the paranormal so when I headed to Seattle, I had to check this out! I had never been on a Ghost Tour before so I was quite intrigued about going on this tour. Jake, the owner, was very informational about Seattle and their ghosts. We took the "Haunted Happenings Tour". This... More

Wonderful, entertaining and interesting tour! Jake is extremely knowledgeable and so very nice. She answered all our questions and really gave us a view into Seattle that you wouldn't get anywhere else. We were a first time visitor to Seattle from Australia and a 20+ year resident of the city and she managed to really engage us. Highly recommended!!!

Great tour. Our guide (Jake) was very informative and had many intersting stories to share. She was also very kind and took great care of us. It is a small tour group (about 8-9 people) so we received very personal attention and were encouraged to ask questions and tell stories of our own. Most of the tour is from the... More
