We did the Show Me Seattle tour as part of a cruise we had booked and were fortunate to have Spencer Fairbanks as our guide. I would HIGHLY recommend him as he was very knowledgeable about the area and had great stories. He went above and beyond by taking the perfect picture of us with the Space Needle in the background.

A lovely tour with a small group. James was knowledgable, fluent and witty. We got a complete city overview and enjoyed the snippets and personal perspectives that he shared. There was some walking but it was not strenuous. Definitely worth doing.

D.C. gave us a Seattle tour with a scientific bent! After days of walking, we were ready for a bus tour, and this one was great. Tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable, and we got a sense of the city’s layout we didn’t have visiting one neighborhood at a time.

And if you like seafood, D.C. is your guy! He got us samples of salmon cured in maple. “Salmon Candy,” they call it!

He made sure we all got a group pic in front of the Seattle skyline. Amazing view! This was a great addition to our plans.

Two of the same tour, two different experiences. Due to my boyfriend not coming the first time we did it again. Our first driver was wonderful, knowledgeable, Hope to interesting facts and notions about the city and fun to listen. Our second trip was boring, dry, incorrect in information or at least inconsistent, drove poorly (hitting curbs and honking at ppl, over revving engine to get up hills etc) and not at all like the first trip except for the major spots. Except he didn’t hit the space needle at all, took an extraordinary long time on talking to us about salmon. I would highly recommend asking about who your driver is and what your trip will be like to understand your experience as they are not all the same. My driver on the second one was named Mark and worked as a teacher during the year. Yes he’s very knowledgeable but we didn’t get exactly what we thought we would.

The tour was great to get an overview & orientation of the Seattle city. James was very informative & kept the tour going on time as best he could. He also kindly adjusted the tour stops to accommodate riders that needed to use a restroom & was patient & helpful with my elderly father. There was bottled water available. The bus wasn't full so there was some social distancing.

I would rate this tour 5 stars but for the following issues:
1. No hotel pickup at the Fairfield Marriott on 7th & John. My father is elderly & has trouble walking long distances. We had to drive around for over 20 minutes to finally find the closest parking spot which was still over 4 blocks from the Westlake pick-up by Wells Fargo. My father was pretty exhausted after the walk to the bus. I was told about a garage nearby but had difficulty finding the entrance & couldn't tell how far that walk would have been to the tour bus pickup.
2. When I called to get more info on the tour I was told it did not require much walking. But there was walking required to see the sites, including stairs, that again made it more difficult for my father to keep up with the group. James was very patient & directed my father for the shortest route. He also dropped us as close as he could to the street we parked on while still staying on his route.

We had a great Seattle City Tour with DC. He was a font of knowledge about the area and made the tour fun and personable. It's mostly a drive-by tour to introduce you to the history and highlights of the city, with just three stops - at a marina (restroom stop), at the locks and at a park with an incredible view of the skyline. It was just what we needed to start out our week in Seattle.

My girlfriends and I went on the Show Me Seattle tour. We had a great time and learned so much! Our tour guide, Elvis, was exactly what you want in a tour guide: outgoing, knowledgeable, funny and personable. We saw several of Seattle’s sights and learned about the history of this beautiful city. The length (3 hours) was perfect. We then went back to several places to further explore them. Highly recommend!!

Great tour! Loved James enthusiasm for Seattle and the surrounding areas. We learned about how the city came to be and enjoyed some amazing sites. I loved the tour though wished I could see a little better in the minibus. A/C was nice because it actually was a warmer day. The part where we got off to see the locks and salmon was awesome! And the baby heron in the trees, what a treat! James was also a safe driver and I felt so comfortable driving around the city with him. Thanks James for introducing us to so many neat things about Seattle.

Booked a 3 hour tour through Show Me Seattle and loved it! James G. was an incredible font of information and did not stop talking for almost the entire trip. History, businesses, neighborhoods, culture, wildlife, fish, plants and a dozen more – he had a ton of knowledge to share. I love not having to drive, navigate, and figure out what we are seeing and would highly recommend this tour and James as your guide.

I wanted an overview of the city earlier in my trip and this fit the bill. I had thought it would be a bit more walking through spots, but it is primarily a small bus tour with stops for a bathroom break, a look at the salmon locks, and photos at Kerry Park, which has an amazing view. You’re getting background as you’re driven around. It took longer than 3 hours - no one can control traffic - so just pad your planning. A couple people were getting sick of their masks toward the end of the trip, but presumably everyone was vaccinated. The tour came to 77$. I wouldn’t do it again, but I’m glad to have done the excursion.
