We've travel to other countries and the U.S., always found the trips to be more enjoyable with a local driver/guide. Large groups on tour busses suck. With Cheryl, we were treated like family, (the ones she loves). I highly recommend booking her services which will lead to a wonderful, memorable experience. We still keep in touch with her 3 years later from our home in Florida.

We will descend into the gorge with stunning views of the mountain and the length of the gorge toward Portland.

Booked the VIP Ultimate Seattle Food Tour for 6 people on January 6th for March 18th. I was notified that our host was being briefed on March 3rd and I was contacted by March 4th. Details were exchanged and a proposed itinerary was received on March 15th. We paid $976 for this 4 hour tour and I was told that our "budget" for food for the 6 of us was $213. The itinerary included 3 stops where we were expected to order off the menu and share. Transportation between restaurants was not included. I asked our host what their recommendations were (why those particular restaurants were selected) and commented that making 3 reservations, being responsible for our own transportation, and ordering off the menu/sharing was something we could have just done on our own. On the morning of March 17th - ONE DAY BEFORE OUR TOUR - I received notification that our tour was canceled "due to COVID" (which isn't being honest, IMO). What horrible service.

Starting on the North side of Lake Union you will cruise by boats and floating homes of all sizes, shapes and ages.

After your journey aboard Candere, you will want to stay all day.

My hubby and I just finished the bike tour with CoCo and there are really no words to describe just how awesome this tour was. From the get go CoCo was personable, engaging, funny, and energetic. We knew before the tour started that it was going to be a blast. We absolutely LOVED it and learned so much about this amazing little Leavenworth city. Every stop we made was literally breathtaking. It has been one of the best activities we’ve ever done while vacationing - truly! Highly recommend- you won’t be disappointed !
