Great overview of Seattle!

Cap’n Steve was a wonderful host! I highly recommend this trip! He kept us safe and very well informed, even during COVID. Steve was very knowledgeable of the area and also tossed in some humor and music clips that fit the topic. Great photo stops! This tour was an awesome way to get an overview of Seattle on our 1st day of a 4-day trip. 5 stars!

Seattle highlight tour

We had a great tour with our personable guide - Captain Steve. We covered lots of ground and had several stops for brief walking and dining. This was a very efficient tour to get introduced to Seattle. Highly recommended. Smoke limited our visibility of vistas, but no one can control the weather. The guide followed recommendations for Covid19 safety. We felt very comfortable.

Lots to see

Had a great time with "Captain Steve", we went when the city was "opening back up" from the Covid and riots, so some of the places that would have been visited were closed or boarded up, but Steve made the trip with add on's and different stops. Had lots of places that were great for picture taking and taking in the view, along with lots of good information about the city. The price is right, could not have gotten an Uber and driven around for that long, and if we would have driven ourselves we would have never seen or heard about all the "hidden" sites. Felt very safe as far as the Covid went. My husband and I were in a 15 passenger van with one other couple, so it was all the more private.

Nice but rather boring
JoAnn_L

The tour guide was extremely pleasant. The problem was that we were seeing things that seemed more of an interest to him than us. We wanted more time at the public market and the space needle. Just wasn’t what we needed to hear and see with such limited time in the city.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2020
Thank you for your review. We are sorry that this tour was not what you were expecting. There is a description of the tour listed on Viator that explains that the guide has many different areas of Seattle to show guests in a short amount of time. I believe your family would have been better suited with a private tour so that you could have had more time in the areas that interested you. Should you find yourself in Seattle again, I would hope you give us the opportunity to give you a customized private tour.

Starbucks and so much more!
Harold_W

We were picked up from our RV park promptly at 8:30, and the tour just got more wonderful after that. Because of COVID-19, we were the only three people on the tour, but our tour guide (I am so sorry that I don't remember his name.) said that he loved giving private tours, and he meant it! Much to our delight, our first stop was at a Starbucks, but lots more was to come. We hit all the highlights mentioned online, and he added a few others, too, like the building where they film the outside shot of Greys Anatomy, Also, the 12 person van was a pleasure to tour in. I totally recommend this tour.

Very good tour mostly due to our guide Andre (lady). Tour actually went longer than scheduled and took us to a few additional sights that were not part of the regular route. She was very knowledgeable of the sights in the Seattle area.

Driver was great. Good way to broadly see Seattle and decide where to go on your own. Only bad thing is it’s hard to see out of shuttle buses.
