Hearing the history of Pike's Place Market was fascinating and the food morsels were all delicious! Our tour guide, Bob, is very knowledgeable and took good care of each of us on the tour, always being aware of our needs and whereabouts.
Fun, friendly, and informative!

Great Way to See and Taste Pike Place Market

Woody was a great guide and shared so much more about Seattle and Pike Place Market than simply telling us about the good. I enjoyed all the different stops for tastings and interesting facts. I did not expect the fish market to be one of the spots where we stopped for a sample of salmon. Delicious! All the food was. Great tour.
Terrific tastings
Billie_W, Sep 2023
The selection of tastings were very diverse and excellent. A few of the places I might not of stopped at on my own to taste but was happy we did. Our guide was gracious and very informative.
So so tour
Elizabeth_P, Sep 2023
Bob was our guide. He was ok, but didn't quite offer much in the way of history..just a bit here and there. He was offering us hand sanitizer every stop. He had a bad habit of talking with his hands, and almost hit at least 4 people as they were passing by. He didn't like to be interrupted with questions or comments..

Don't miss the Truffle Queen
Gary_G, Sep 2023
Real fun time. Learned some very interesting facts about Pike Place. Group leader was very professional and easy to understand. Visited several shops and got to meet some of the people who work there. Plenty to eat, lots of delicious food and snacks. The staff at Truffle Queen made it worth the trip.

Our tour guide "Woody" made this experience fun, educational and memorable. Loved the history, the vibe and the tastings were perfect choices. We certainly had the flavor of the market, vendors and patrons. He also added tidbits of info from his wealth of knowledge. Would highly recommend this tour and tasting - and watching them throw the fish !!
Worth It
Dan_A, Sep 2023
Even though we had looked through the market a bit on our own, Nola added many more details about its deep history. The skip-the-line food samples were also very tasty and filling with.
Exceptional Food Tour
Sonya_F, Sep 2023
Woody our tour guide was EXCEPTIONAL! He was very knowledgeable of the city, told us all the hidden secrets, he was friendly, accommodating and funny too. This was our first tour on our vacation. It was a great start as I now know which restaurants I want to go to. BOOK THIS TOUR! It was filled with lots of sample foods from all the restaurants….more food than I expected! We were so full that we didn’t eat until dinner. Thank you Woody for a great introduction to SEATTLE!
Delicious treats at the market

Maleah was our tour guide for the tasting tour. It ended up just being our family and she did a wonderful job engaging our girls. There were so many delightful surprises along the tour. Maleah knows her stuff and told a great story. Our teens were never bored and we all learned something new. If you book a tour ask for her she was amazing.
Lot of fun and great food!
Jay_M, Sep 2023
Sarah was a great guide. She had both knowledge and enthusiasm. She mixed local info with info about Washington overall.
Worth every dime!
Holly_S, Sep 2023
We were first-time Seattle visitors and, of course, wanted to visit the Public Market. But with so many vendors it was daunting. Imogen (our guide) made it a perfect tour! We stopped at a few snack and food vendors, saw the great Pike's Place fish throwers, and heard the history of the market with details we did not know! I would 10 out of 10 recommend the guided tour! Made the visit so much more enjoyable!
Post cruise tour

Bob was an excellent guide. He is very knowledgeable and obviously loves Pike Place. It would have been very entertaining to spend many more hours with him. There were several in our group that were difficult ( needed a walker, negative comments. Didn't like the food, etc) He was very patient with them and made sure they were comfortable. My husband ans I enjoyed the tour very much
Wonderful time
Amanda_T, Sep 2023
Well I'm a foodie and love tasting new foods so this was right up my alley. Everything I tasted on the tour was delicious and Nola our guide was friendly and wonderful. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone new to Seattle.
Great tour
Justin_R, Sep 2023
Awesome tour. Learned a lot. Have some yummy bites. Been to pike place before but never like this. A must do tour!
Great guide
James_S, Sep 2023
Bob was our tour guide. He was very thoughtful. He not only ensured we had hand sanitizer and napkins, he also ensured the food my wife received was gluten free. She is very sensitive and will get sick if she has gluten. He was very careful and offered alternatives
