Compact and full of interesting things to see, Seattle is a great place to take a walking tour. The World’s Greatest Seattle Walking Tour is a two-hour tour of popular Seattle attractions like Pioneer Square and Pike Place market, led by doctoral students of history who can give the background on the places you are visiting.
- 15 cash or plastic (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, AMEX). Tickets are sold at the meeting location or online (click the Buy Now button below). No reservations accepted (or needed).
- The tour meets at Westlake Park on the corner of 4th Avenue and Pine Street, kitty corner from Macy’s (click here for map). Look for the guide holding the sign, present 20 minutes prior to the start of each tour time.
- Lasts 2 hours, covers 1.5 miles, and ends in Pioneer Square, which is a 20 minute walk or short, free bus ride from starting point. Or better yet, you can parlay your Pioneer Square visit to hit up nearby attractions such as the International District, Bainbridge Island Ferry, West Seattle Water Taxi, waterfront, Klondike Gold Rush Museum or even the Seattle Underground Tour.
- The tour is almost entirely flat or downhill and is both dog and stroller friendly.
If you want to exercise your noggin as well, they also host a trivia crawl in Capitol Hill where you take a walking tour interpreted by stop at local pubs for some trivia contests.
