First time in Seattle and I couldn’t have asked for a better tour. Terry was amazing. He was full of great info and history regarding Seattle. Helped my boyfriend and I take some wonderful photos. I would recommend this tour if you’re in Seattle.

Having taken this tour 4 years ago, I was so glad Terry was our guide again. He is such a wealth of knowledge about Seattle. And, his photo tips are excellent. The best photos from the tour are portraits that Terry took of me and my fellow traveler at the falls. To heck with

Carl, it was so great to see you again and I really enjoyed having you and Don on the tour. Your suggestion to get to the market early and explore is great advice, one of the main reasons we chose the Pike Place Market for our pickup location. As you know, photography is a passion for me and I'm happy you received some benefit out of the ebook we created to help you take better photos.
