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!

Our tour guide was DC, who is one of a kind. He is the best guide, I have experienced. My husband and I enjoyed the vast information, which gave us great love for Seattle. The knowledge shared peaked our interest to learn more about Seattle. My husband wanted to continue picking DC’s mind, but we ran out of time. This tour is highly recommend. Thank you DC.
