Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had just one half-day in Seattle before joining a cruise to Alaska, and came across the Tours Northwest brochure which gave us the perfect solution to how to see the most we could of the city and get to our cruise on time and without hassle.
We were picked up right on time from our hotel, and our baggage stowed in the back of the bus by our very jolly driver Doug, whose commentary throughout the tour was really interesting and informative. We didn't know much about Seattle before this and actually found we could have spent more time there quite happily. Anyway, we got to see many of the city's neighbourhoods and attractions and got a feel for the place, with several stops to walk around and take photos etc. Even got to see the famous view of Seattle from 'Frasier's' eyrie. At end of tour, Doug dropped us off at the cruise terminal with plenty of time to spare. A most enjoyable morning and well worth doing as an orientation if you haven't been to Seattle before.

We were picked up from the hotel near airport promptly alongwith our luggage for the city pre cruise trip. The driver was very knowledgeable and took a round of the city explaining all details from the past to the current. There was not sufficient time to get off at every place. Finally at the end were dropped on time to the cruise terminal

This tour was wonderful- they show you so much of Seattle when you’re only in town for a short amount of time. Our tour guide, Avery, was fantastic! He told us so much about all the sites we were seeing and answered any questions that we had. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to see Seattle prior to departing on a cruise.

What a great way to spend a few hours exploring Seattle! We had a very small 6 person group on 7/1 Our guide was amazing and funny and a huge Star Wars fan. He was also kind enough to drop us off at the ship before the main drop off.
