Interesting foods, guide and tour
Ruth_T

Chef Eric was very knowledgeable about all the foods we tasted. He kept the day lively with interesting commentary while staying on his schedule. He took time at the end to answer all questions regarding the tastings. The selection of food was excellent. I've been on several food tours and cannot recommend this one high enough.

Wish they paid more attention to dietary restrictions
Sarah_S

Overall the tour was great, but I do not recommend it to those with any dietary restrictions. One of our group members could not eat pork for religious reasons, and I made sure to make a note of this when I booked the tour. However, 3 of the vendors we stopped at only had samples that contained pork! I was highly disappointed as this group member felt left out and excluded. I was expecting them to accommodate us and they did not. The food was amazing, the tour guide was knowledgeable and personable however, the experience we had regarding dietary restrictions not being given any attention, or even cared for really made the tour unenjoyable for our group. If you have any dietary restrictions whatsoever I don’t recommend booking this tour.

We are so sorry that this person felt excluded. We have a variety of different routes and we should have modified the tour if you let us know in advance. That's our fault and we will work to do better.

What a fantastic way to start our visit in Seattle. Sean was great, sharing so much about Pike Place Market. We had no idea how huge it is, and where to find all the amazing food. We totally relaxed, forgot to take pictures, and just had fun. Highly recommend!

Chef Eric for the win!

This is my second tour and I had the pleasure of being guided by Chef Eric for the second time. The first time my teenage son came with me and he enjoyed it (and that boy is hard to please). He enjoyed Eric’s humor and personality and his knowledge of the food … and the food! This time my dad came along. My dad is visiting me from our home in Hawaii. He loves history and all things knowledge. He really appreciates Eric’s knowledgeable background, his humble and respectful demeanor, humor and his way with a group. He gave him 9/10! And my dad is a tough rater! Excellent tour. I’ll definitely be back!

My partner and I had an amazing time on this tour! Our guide was Eric. He was very knowledgeable and organized, and it was a really love experience for us. He taught us about the history of Pike Place and how did foods are sourced, made, and prepared. He included information about the history of indigenous gathering and cooking, as well as the experiences of Japanese people in the area. He also talked a lot about how to make the most of the local ingredients and sustainability practices used by the vendors. All in all, it was really lovely—the food was awesome, we learned a lot, and it was so easy for us. Don’t miss this tour.

Getting to see pikes place. John was a great tour guide. Made sure we got to taste what was offered. Indi chocolate was a disappointment lotion instead of chocolate. The rest of the food was awesome. Just felt like we were rushed.
