Seattle Free Walking Tours

The first Free Walking tour we did was the Seattle Center one, we liked Jake and the tour so much we decided to do his other two, the Seattle 101 and the Pikes Market tour. All three tours gave great insights in how to enjoy Seattle's Best. I am not sure after living in Austin for over 35 years that we know as much about Austin as we learned from Jake in his three tours around Seattle. The West Coast is very young since it was the last to be settled and so the way the City has evolved in the last couple hundred years to the High Tech world happened much faster than the old world of the several hundred year old Eastern Seaboard.
Jake has something for every age in his walking tours and I guess that is why he gets such high reviews on Yelp. Either way he feels passionate about his City and he shares all that with anyone willing to listen. If you come to Seattle pick your tour but be sure to walk up front and ask all the questions that come to mind along the way.  You will get a custom tour that will have lots to look forward to as you try and check the best parts of the City off your list of things to do.
