Know More about this tour

After hotel pickup (only for those staying at downtown Seattle hotels, south Lake Union hotels, or university area hotels), start your 1.5-hour sightseeing tour by comfortable minibus in downtown Seattle. Your guide engages you with humorous stories and in-the-know facts and stats about the city. Tunes from Seattle’s famous musicians, like Jimi Hendrix and Kurt Cobain, amp up the liveliness on board.

Weave through the main retail district, and cruise past the culinary landmark of Pike Place Market and the picturesque waterfront. Gaze at Seattle’s oldest buildings in Pioneer Square and learn about the city’s gold rush while passing through Old Town. Then drive through the Chinatown-International District, known locally as ‘ID,' which dates back to the early 1900s.
Cruise past the former home of Kurt Cobain and the high school that Quincy Jones and Jimi Hendrix attended. Along Lake Washington, see Governor Albert D. Rosellini Bridge, the longest floating bridge in the world.

Go through the hipster-hot neighborhood of Capitol Hill en route to Lake Union, where you’ll see floating homes, including the one filmed in Sleepless in Seattle. Pass the University of Washington and then under a bridge, discover the Fremont Troll, an 18-foot-tall (5-meter) sculpture of a mangy-haired troll with a gimlet eye.

At Kerry Park, disembark for a brief photo stop and admire stunning city views. Glimpse the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation building and Marion Oliver McCaw Hall, home to the Pacific Northwest Ballet and Seattle Opera.

Set eyes on Seattle’s most iconic landmark, the Space Needle, before being taken back to your hotel or, if you prefer, one of the select drop-off points in the city.

  • The tour guide was excellent and entertaining throughout

  • This tour is just a quick overview of what you need to do in Seattle. A little background, locations of where stuff is and of course Charles the tour leader. He was very good at keeping things interesting and funny. Well done tour.

  • Beautiful ship, good accommodations, staff extremely responsive to any request. Wide array of food choices. Fruit fresh and sweet.

  • Chuck the driver/narrator was GREAT and exceptionally funny! My wife and I enjoyed every moment of the Seattle City Tour prior to our pre-cruise departure to Alaska. We loved visiting Seattle.

  • Oh my goodness! What a great tour. I hope that you get to experience Chuck! He is a hoot and a walking encyclopedia of all things Seattle.
    I was amazed at how much territory we covered in 90 minutes and how much we learned. I have been visiting Seattle for decades. It was my friend's first visit-- so I thought why not try it? I am so glad that we did...because you can never have too much cowbell!

  • This was a well organized car tour of the downtown area that gave us a great overview of Seattle. Our guide/driver mixed an appropriate amount of humor with history to orient us on our first visit to the area.

  • Good tour, Chuck knows the main areas of Seattle. I highly recommend it.

  • Chuck made our tour very enjoyable with his antics and humor. He also gave us tour tips we could use on our own. He also dropped us off right at the cruise terminal which saved us an additional of cost of a taxi. Well worth our time.

  • Chuck was one of the most energetic tour guides I've ever met. He was so enthusiastic and engaging. The tour was a great way to see the areas you want to come back to. The tour lasted 90 minutes and it felt like the perfect amount of time to get my bearings while checking off a few must-sees like Kurt Cobain's house and Kerry Park. I would recommend to anyone that wants a quick tour of the city to start their trip.

  • great tour!
