Seattle City Private Walking Tour Details

Highlights Tour

A 2-3-hour walking tour designed to give you a taste of the city will focus on areas along Elliott Bay. Learn about the founding of Seattle in downtown Pioneer Square, where we can stroll the historic streets, take in turn-of-the-century architecture, and even arrange admission to the Smith Tower Observatory, with sweeping views of the Puget Sound.


From here, we can make our way up to Pike Place neighborhood, passing by incredible feats of architecture like the Seattle Public Library and Columbia Center. Pike Place is home to the one-of-a-kind historic farmers market, a maze of food stalls and shops where your guide will introduce you to generations-owned businesses and food unique to the Pacific Northwest.


If there’s time, we’ll walk off the calories along Seattle’s beautiful waterfront, home of the Seattle Great Wheel, souvenir shops, and plenty of spots to grab a group photo with the Olympic Mountains and Salish Sea islands.

Half-Day Tour

Building on our Highlights tour, extend your time with us to enjoy more of Pike Place Market and the waterfront or take the short but fun ride on the monorail to Seattle Center. Here, we can arrange admission to one of the Center’s top-rated attractions, including the iconic Space Needle, the other-worldly exhibits at Chihuly Garden and Glass, and – a mecca for music fans – the Museum of Pop Culture.

This neighborhood of Queen Anne is an excellent place to explore cafes and restaurants, and, if you’re up for the climb, take a hike up the hillside to some peaceful parks with jaw-dropping views of the Sound and the city skyline.

Full-Day Tour

There’s so much to see in Seattle, and you can get around fairly easily by foot, public transportation, and even ferry! Add a truly local experience into your visit by hopping aboard the commuter ferry with us to Bainbridge Island. Once there, we can stop at one of the island’s cafe-bakeries and take a leisurely stroll through nature to Bainbridge Island Japanese American Exclusion Memorial, a touching tribute marking the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II.


Alternatively, we can use public transit to make our way north to the neighborhood of Fremont. You’ll fall in love with the vibe and funky art scene here, with a chance to see one of Seattle’s favorite sculptures, the Fremont Troll. Your guide will give you great recommendations for dining and drinking, live music and comedy shows, and more eccentric art to check out in this lively neighborhood! 


To put the cherry on top of your Seattle experience, arrange an electric boat ride on the lovely Lake Union for spectacular views of the city from the water

Space Needle

This iconic symbol of the city’s skyline, stands at 605 feet tall and was constructed for the 1962 World’s Fair. With its futuristic design and rotating observation deck, it offers panoramic views of Seattle, including the Puget Sound and the surrounding mountains.


The futuristic monorail, originally built for the 1962 World’s Fair, provides a quick and unique transportation experience. Traveling at an elevation, it offers passengers a scenic journey while providing efficient connectivity between these two prominent locations in the city.

Seattle Waterfront

The waterfront is home to many souvenir shops, restaurants featuring fish and chips and local oysters, a ferris wheel, and docks serving as departure points for sightseeing cruises as well as the Washington ferry system. On your Seattle walking tour, you’ll enjoy a stroll past these attractions and enjoy views of the beautiful Puget Sound.

The Gum Wall

Your Pike Place tour will stop at one of Seattle’s most unusual attractions, a 50-foot-long wall entirely covered with chewing gum! No matter how you feel about it, you’ll definitely want a few photos at this iconic spot and hear all about its history and present-day care and maintenance.

Starbucks (1912 Pike Pl)

On this Pike Place Market walking tour, we’ll pass by the place where it all started for one of the world’s biggest coffee chains, the original Starbucks. If we’re lucky, you can grab your own cup of java, or simply marvel at the endless line as people queue for their lattes at this historic and cultural site.
