Sit back in a comfortable motor-coach as a friendly, expert Seattleite guides you through the city’s must-see attractions, famous landmarks and beautiful sights. Learn about Seattle’s history and culture, and get insider tips on special shopping and sightseeing areas.

The tour begins with a drive by Seattle’s waterfront en route to historic Pioneer Square, Seattle’s oldest residential area and now a major visitor attraction with restaurants, galleries and lively clubs. Alongside Seattle’s bustling Elliott Bay waterfront, view the exciting maritime activities, piers, ferry docks, souvenir shops, restaurants, boat cruises, the Seattle Aquarium and other Puget Sound attractions.

Next, guests will head to the Olympic Sculpture Park, which has transformed a nine-acre industrial site into an open and vibrant green space for art. This waterfront park gives visitors the opportunity to experience a variety of sculpture in an outdoor setting, while enjoying the incredible views and beauty of the Olympic Mountains and Puget Sound. The Olympic Sculpture Park features artwork from the Seattle Art Museum’s collection of sculpture, works built into the fabric of the park, video projection, and temporary installations. The art takes full advantage of the park’s distinctive Z-shaped design and it also includes a variety of design elements that showcases Northwest ecology and native plants, as well as restoration efforts for salmon recovery in Elliott Bay.

This tour wouldn’t be complete without a trip to Seattle’s most famous landmark: the Space Needle. Created for the 1962 World’s Fair, the Space Needle stands 605 feet tall and boasts fabulous 360-degree views of Puget Sound, Mount Rainier, the Cascade and Olympic mountain ranges, the beautiful city of Seattle and beyond. The Observation Deck offers complimentary Swarovski telescopes to allow for an up-close and personal view of Seattle’s commanding sights.

Located at the foot of the Space Needle is Seattle Center’s newest landmark, the Chihuly Garden and Glass Museum. This space houses the most comprehensive presentation of celebrated Northwest glass artist, Dale Chihuly’s artwork including impressive glass chandeliers, towers and a variety of unique installations.
