The driver,Mark did a wonderful job….. the vehicle’s air conditioning was not that good….. changed vehicles and the second vehicle…. The air conditioning was only ok… not great…. But yes I would recommend this excursion to friends
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
Hi Scott! Thank you so much for sticking with us through the change of vehicles, and we are so glad you enjoyed Mark as your guide. Apologies again for the AC issues; while "Seattle remains the nation's least air-conditioned major metropolitan area" (WAPO), we do encounter issues during heat waves maintaining proper AC service in our vehicles. We so appreciate your patience and good humor, and would love to follow up with a discount card for future travel as a thank you. Please email us if you are interested! info@showmeseattle.com

DC was an excellent tour guide. We started at Pikes Place Farmers Market and finished our tour in Queen Ann Karrie Park where DC took individual group pictures of us w/the beautiful scenic view of the city with the space needle in the background. I was really facinated by Ballad Locks and ladders..Would recommend friends to take this tour.

We had a wonderful tour with Mark this morning - he is friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining. The tour was great, especially seeing the salmon and the otters. We were only in town for a couple of days, so I would highly recommend this tour for a complete overview and interesting history of Seattle.

Mark has lived in the city for many years and had a wealth of information to share. He recounted the history of Seattle as well as sharing personal stories and anecdotes about life here. The stops were perfectly timed. He dropped us back at the Market at the end of the tour, as requested.

Seattle is a beautiful city and this tour really pointed that out to me. The downtown area with it's sparkling skyscrapers and high-tech everything is truly inspiring. The views which Mark showed us at every possible vantage point are awesome. Our tour guide's love for and familiarity with his hometown were evident at every point. He took great care of me and adapted our tour to accommodate my disabilities. It was truly worth it.

We loved seeing so many places without having to research where to go. I'd highly recommend doing this tour to start your trip so you know where to focus the rest of your time. In our case, we were only in Seattle for the day, so this was a great way to see everything and maximize our time. DC was a great, knowledgeable guide!

Tour driver David packed a lot in our three hour tour. He was very accommodating. We made four stops and got off the bus for snacks or restrooms or photos or extended viewing. We saw many areas of the city. Highly recommend
