    Does this tour have anything to offer a native Seattleite?
    Definitely!  Many tour participants live in Seattle.  Locals often join the tour to learn about the great food find right in Seattle that have been under their noses the entire time!  Seattle is brimming with lively tales and history, and this will be a great way to rediscover your hometown.
    Do the tours start and end at the same place?
    The tours end within a few blocks of the starting point.  Your tour guide will be happy to assist with directions at the end of the tour.
    Are the tours wheelchair / stroller accessible?
    Unfortunately tours are not wheelchair/stroller accessible.
    What is included in the ticket price?
    - All food and drink tastings (enough for a meal) - Signature merchant and dining guide - A special VIP discount card that is only available to tour participants. Return to your favorite shops and vendors you tasted at on the tour and receive a 10-15% discount on your entire purchase.
    Should I eat anything before the tour?
    It is recommended that you eat a light meal before participating in the tour. The amount of food sampled on the tour is significant enough that many people delay or skip lunch afterwards, or will opt for a later dinner depending on the tour time.
    Do we only walk around and sample food?
    Absolutely not! You will taste locally made foods and beverages that will awaken your palate, while learning about and meeting the storied characters and vendors that give Seattle life. Soak up the rich and vibrant history that even locals don’t know about!
    Are there age restrictions?
    Children are welcome, but please bear in mind that some children have a limited attention span and therefore a 2-3 hour tour or event may not be appropriate for them. Parents know their children best and should assess the situation individually. Since there is a lot of standing, walking, and congestion, please consider this when deciding whether the tours and events are appropriate for your child.

    If your child is 2 years of age or younger and will not be eating, you will not need to purchase a ticket for him/her. If your child is 3 years of age or older, you will need to purchase a ticket for him/her, regardless if he/she will be eating. Please bear in mind that strollers are extremely challenging on the tour.

    Hi Sandy, That's wonderful! I'll be sure to let Matt know how much you enjoyed your time with him at the market. I hope you discovered some of the hidden gems Seattle has to offer and found a couple fun new spots to revisit! Cheers, Inah
    The Pike Place Market food tour with Savor Seattle was one of the highlights of my trip. Kat was an amazing tour guide. She know a lot about the history and built strong relationships with a lot of the vendor. This tour was just about eating food, but learning as well. I would definitely recommend my family and friends.

    Great tour, Amanda was a great guide and we loved it!!
    Our tour guide was extremely informative and friendly and caring all of the participants. Also it was awesome that I could try some of the most delicious foods without standing in a line. I would definitely participate in this tour again in the future and recommend this tour to others without doubt. Thumbs up.
    I've been living in Seattle for almost 2 years, and after that food tour, I felt there's still so much to go and see. I would like to thank Justin, the tour guide. Awesome and highly recommend tour.
    Justin was a terrific guide. He was both knowledgeable and entertaining.
    We loved this. Our guide, Carla with Savor Seattle, was terrific! She was fun and very informative. She made the experience!
    A bit long winded to the first taste. Well worth the time, however.
    Educational, fun and the great quality food you find in Seattle.
    Patrick did a great job guiding us on the Food Tour of Pike Place Market. He had a strong command of the history and people that made the market what it is today. I would highly recommend the tour to others.
    It was a great way to see Pikes Market. Our guide (Brett) was very knowledgeable and very entertaining. It was our first day in Seattle, and our favorite Seattle experience.
    Our tour guide (Warren) was personable and knowledgeable. It was nice to have direction in a somewhat overwhelming marketplace. We also learned a lot of interesting facts. The fresh cheese tastings were my favorite!

    The Pike Place tasting tour was so much fun! JR was a great guide who made an effort to get to know each of us and took us to a fantastic variety of eateries. He also shared some interesting historical facts about the venue. Overall, highly recommended.
    Pikes Place Market was a definite stop - getting a tour was the best may to be introduced to the Market. We had samples from each stop and the history of the Market was also found to be exciting! Our guide was knowledgeable and entertaining as well! Tyler was perfect for the position of being a guide! We all loved him! Tyler explained everything in a fun and loving way - he was very passionate about the Market. He took our needs into consideration, as I am allergic to 'crab meat'. The shops' personal also gave details and presentations which were enjoyed by all! Thank you so much for this tour!!
