It's not just the amazing food, it's the amount you learn about Pike's Place Market and Seattle as a whole. The social history is compelling, and all the while you're fed an amazing range of top quality food. Towards the end (when you're stuffed!), there's wine tasting, olive oil and balsamic tasting. Everything is delivered with huge enthusiasm and an... More

Loved this tour, lots of history Pike's Market and good variety of foods to taste. Lovely red headed guide [blanking on her name] gave us time to explore and talk as we went. Also got a great little shopping bag, which is good because stores charge for bagging items in Seattle. I would go on this tour again.

Our tour, with Marla as our leader, was a wonderful way to learn the ins and outs of Pike Place Market. We really appreciated learning the history of the market while tasting some amazing dishes. You definitely get to sample quite a bit and it can be considered your lunch for that day-you won't leave hungry. My favorites were the... More

Not only did we sample the best of the best in Pike Place Market, our tour guide, Marla, was so engaging and fun and full of incredibly interesting Seattle facts. It was truly the best introduction to Seattle we could have ever wanted. Touring the Market with Marla was so fantastic, each food sample out did the last. I will... More

Pike Place Market has such a wide variety of amazing food that this is the best way to fit it all in (time and belly). It's a little pricey, but you get some awesome food and history behind Pike Place Market.

This was by far one of our favorite things during our trip to Seattle. Marla was our host, and she was wonderful. She was informative, funny, sweet, always made sure everyone was doing okay during the tour, engaged, and could hear everything she was saying. We went during the summer (August) so there were two tour options. We took the... More
