A private tour with WeVenture Seattle is always a completely custom itinerary, created just for you and your group! A private city tour of Seattle can be from 4 hours – 10 hours, depending on the destination. Pick-up and drop-off locations are the group’s choice. While many visitors to Seattle have specific sites they would like to see, many are happy to let our team create a custom itinerary that fits their interests, budget, mobility, and timeline. Typically, tours spend most of their time in and around central Seattle, but we welcome any ideas for your dream tour.
No two groups are alike and we will plan a trip tailored to your group’s interests, budget, and needs. Below are some sample itineraries to use as inspiration for your perfect tour:
Highlights Tour: A driving tour will cover the must-see spots of Seattle, with options to briefly explore on foot or otherwise enjoy the sights from inside the vehicle.
A top destination in the city we highly recommend for your Highlights tour is the historic Pike Place Market. Here, you’ll have the opportunity to stop and explore or get your guide’s recommendations for the best food the market has to offer, from rich clam chowder to fresh fruits and cheeses. You’ll definitely want to check out two of the market’s most fantastic attractions: the famous flying fish and (in)famous Gum Wall. Coffee fanatics rejoice: this is where we can gawk at the long line outside the original Starbucks!
From here, we can take a stroll down to the waterfront or hop back in the vehicle to take a leisurely drive along Alaskan Way, home to the Seattle Ferris Wheel, Aquarium, and plenty of souvenir shops and restaurants where your group can enjoy anything from oysters to halibut.
You’ll fall in love with the city and the Puget Sound as we enjoy views of the distant Olympic Mountains from the boardwalk or nearby Olympic Sculpture Park.
Half-Day Tour: This 4-6–hour option will give your group plenty of time to explore Pike Place Market, the beautiful waterfront area, and more, including the most recognized symbol of the city, the Space Needle and its breathtaking views from the observation deck! Arrange admission with or without your guide to Seattle Center’s fantastic cultural institutions: besides the Needle, music enthusiasts in your group will love the Museum of Pop Culture, while art lovers will be in awe of the incredible works at Chihuly Garden and Glass. Sports fans might want to make a stop at the Climate Pledge Arena, home to the Kraken, Seattle’s ice hockey team!
This area of Queen Anne and neighboring Belltown are full of great restaurants and cafes where we can stop for a bite or a sampling of Seattle’s best coffee. A drive up the steep hills through the beautiful residential neighborhood will provide even more amazing views of the Sound and the city skyline.
If your party includes any foodies, we’ll be sure to make a stop at some point at our top-favorite places for Thai, Vietnamese, and more in the International District!
Full-Day Tour: A full-day experience might be the way to go if you’re looking to really cover some ground and truly get the full Seattle experience. While we’ll hit all of the major places downtown – including the historic Pioneer Square area and its beautiful turn-of-the-century architecture – we’ll be able to venture farther out to neighborhoods such as Ballard and Fremont, home to truly unusual art like our beloved Fremont Troll.
Nearby, we can enjoy spectacular views of the city from the repurposed waterfront space known as Gas Works Park. Nature lovers will enjoy this recreational area as well as the Ballard Locks Fish Ladder & Visitor Museum, where you can watch the tugboats rise through a series of locks and – at certain times of the year – go underneath the locks to watch salmon fight the current to make their long journey back to their breeding grounds.
Add some extra interest to your trip with arranged admission to the Museum of History & Industry or National Nordic Museum to learn about the area’s ties to Nordic culture. Arrange for an electric boat outing on Lake Union with your guide as captain and narrator, or jump back in the vehicle to check out West Seattle and enjoy some wildlife watching in the summer months, when we may spot some harbor seals lounging in the sun along the beach!
