Tours in Seattle

The charming, modern metropolis of Seattle is home to a kaleidoscope of cultural influences, be that in its all-encompassing international cuisine, tales of Bigfoot at its nearby national parks, or its many artistic neighbourhoods spanning the city.

As part of our Artisan Adventures in the Wild Northwest tour, you’ll overlook the Seattle skyline as you enjoy a gourmet dinner with a view from the top of the soaring Space Needle. Immerse yourself in the city’s fascinating past with an underground tour of its former streets. Visit one of Seattle’s many vibrant museums, including the Museum of Pop Culture – designed to resemble a smashed-up guitar; the international offerings of Seattle Art Museum; and the vivid glass sculptures of the Chihuly Glass Museum.

Wander through one of America’s oldest farmer’s markets, Pike Place, observing the ‘fish throwers’ and the plethora of fresh fruit on offer. Slurp locally-sourced oysters in family-run restaurants, then shop for souvenirs, antiques and collectibles, before browsing classic literature in independent book stores. Alternatively, head to the multi-cultural International District and sample fusion cuisine inspired by famous dishes from across the globe.
