Free Walking Tour Seattle

Experience the best of Seattle and Pike Place Market with a local guide and only pay what you feel!

Free Seattle Walking Tour

Seattle Free Walking Tours began as an idea while the founders backpacked around the world on a 2 year honeymoon, it became real in 2012. The goal: To provide the best most authentic Seattle experiences at a Pay What You Feel price.

We offer two unique adventures: 

Seattle 101 our flagship tour covers big picture Seattle history and visits the sites of its most pivotal events. You can snap the best photos of Downtown, the historic district of Pioneer Square, and the city’s beautiful waterfront. By the end you’ll know about the land's indigenous people, how Seattle started and grew, and what it has become. Seattle 101 is the best first thing to do when you visit the Emerald City. 

Market Experience is our deep dive into Seattle’s famous Pike Place Market. Beautifully vibrant, diverse, so tasty, a bit rough around the edges (in a good way), the market is the soul of Seattle. Expect, history, unique characters, delicious tastings and a well connected guide to lead the way. 

Join us today! Don’t just visit Seattle, Experience Seattle!

Definitely recommend this tour. This was our first trip to Seattle. Our guide, Shawn, gave a tremendous amount of history of the area, and in a very entertaining manner. He also gave many tips on what else we should do / not do while in Seattle, and how to save $ while here. Wish we would have taken this tour sooner.

We've done many free walking tours all around the world and Jake's Seattle 101 was as good as any of them. Jake's insights provided us with a really good understanding of the history, layout and culture of this very fine city. His helpful suggestions about where to eat or just catch a beer were also very much appreciated. Well done Jake and thanks very much.

Both tours are designed to be easy. There are uneven surfaces, a few stairs, and require being on your feet for up to 2 hours.

Can I still attend if I haven’t signed up or if the tour is Sold Out?
