Earl makes the 4 hours pass so quickly. Very knowledgable and all facts imparted with witty stories. Visited everything you would wish to see on the city tour. Earl’s seal impression is the best we have heard in years. Makes everyone feel at home.

Earl was absolutely amazing! He was energetic and knowledgeable, and I loved that he took us to one of his favorite local coffee/donut shops. Earl's humor kept us laughing the whole time and he was great at pointing out sights of interest and letting us sneak a picture even if it wasn't a planned stop.

We had one day in Seattle and wanted to utilize our limited time. We were so happy we decided on this tour. Earl is absolutely the best tour guide we have ever had - extremely knowledgeable and very entertaining! We saw all the highlights of Seattle and more! We loved the stop at Top Pot Doughnuts - we never would have discovered this gem on our own. Thank you, Earl for a great day in Seattle! Highly recommend this tour - you will not be disappointed!
