Seattle’s beloved Pike Place Market is nine acres of buskers, fish mongers, local farmers, artists, and specialty businesses. Explore this fascinating destination to learn about its offerings, history, scandals, and ghost stories.

It was decent. I would skip this honestly. Also, MOST of the shops if not all inside the market were already closed. If you want to do this tour, book for an early one. I was truly disappointed:/

We had a great time. Carolyn was very interesting and knowledgeable about the market. She gave us several recommendations of things to do and places to eat.
