Silas was an awesome guide. He was friendly and answered all questions and provided information. I would highly recommend this tour. Our favorite sample was at Hellenika, we have been back twice for more since the tour.

Great tour, food and info. It is ridiculous to be required to wax eloquent in order to give a review.
Perfect Market Tour
David_C, Sep 2023
Chef Sean was an amazing tour guide who has incredible depth of knowledge and love for the Market. The Market is challenging to navigate without knowing where to go, so this tour was exactly what we needed. We sampled some great food and finished very satisfied.

Our guide, Jonathan, was excellent. He shared loads of info about Pike Place Market and guided us through a wonderful tasting tour. I highly recommend this as a great way to experience Pike Place without joining the queues.

Mark_Y, Sep 2023
Informed but robotic guide. Food samples ranged from excellent to barely OK. We had nice weather and an uncrowned tour. Wasn’t sorry we went but not recommendable.
Response from Host, Sep 2023
We're sorry the Market’s world-renowned tastes weren't to your liking, & that you found your chef robotic - we usually hear the opposite about him. Please feel free to email us if you have any additional comments; we welcome feedback & will use it to improve wherever we can.
Delicious and Informative and Fun

Silus was a great tour guide. Extensive knowledge about the market and the food. Lots of detailed conversations re prep of the food and the providers history in Pike Market. Don’t eat before this tour as there are nine food stops so very filling!
