I have lived in Seattle all my life and been to the market many times but never appreciated it as much as I did today. I learned so much and tasted some awesome food. We all want to come back and spend even more time there. Thanks Lucky for the great tour!

We had an almost private tour because of the low season. Jerry was our guide. We visited 11 food places. Jerry was very knowledgable of the market. We ate so much we skipped lunch. I recommend this tour and the price was right.

Marcia was our guide and gave us and intimate tour on Pike Place. We sampled 13 places when were only told 8 which was huge success. Not only did we have a bunch of food but I even got a birthday surprise! Thank you for the wonderful memories it will make a lasting impression on

This tour covered a LOT. So many interesting facts that we would not have known about doing it on our own. After the tour we still had time to do things on our own too. I have lost his card, but the guide was SUPER! He was patient, helpful, and got us the best samplings!
