We enjoyed the Market tour very much. Our tour guide was very funny and we laughed a lot and learned a lot, plus we sampled some great treats from the various shops. Highly recommend.

In my honest opinion, even I was bored plus 2 more. So yikes kids that age would be extremely bored. Skip it and just take him to the Mo pop museum next to the Space needle. They have video games there. Just saying.

Which tour? The Pike Place Market didn't have a lot of steps but the aisles seemed tight and I didn't see any strollers around. IIRC the city tours are not strenuous, the are described pretty well on the website.
