Whether you’ve chosen a morning or afternoon tour time, meet your guide and group at the Market Theater, near Seattle's famous gum wall, at least 15 minutes before your scheduled tour.

Set off for the Pike Place Market, the epicenter of Seattle's rich food culture. Follow your food-loving guide to the best stalls in the market, where they'll introduce you to winemakers, famers, butchers, bakers, and craft makers of all types.

Hear about the history of Seattle's culinary scene and learn about its bounty of products. Along the way, you'll get to taste 16 different samples of local foods, including clam chowder, fresh produce, artisan cheeses, and fresh donuts. The amount of food tasted on the tour is equivalent to a light lunch.

Walk away with an in-depth understanding of Seattle's food culture and a repeat visitor card, good for 10 percent off purchases at tasting locations.
