What sets your business apart from your competition?
The smaller size of our groups and our focus on history. We limit our groups to 22 persons which allows our guides to tailor information to guest's areas of interest. Other companies may have groups twice as large.
What was the inspiration for starting this business?
We were founded by four tour guides who wanted to share their passion of local history with smaller groups, and in a greater variety of underground spaces. All of our guides have previously worked as tour guides in the Pioneer Square neighborhood.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Beneath the Streets is a new tour that visits the areaways under the sidewalks in Pioneer Square. These spaces are commonly referred to as underground, although as you'll discover on the tour, they are actually Seattle's original ground level. Other tour companies visit similar spaces.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a customer?
"This is a great alternative to the traditional underground tour. The group was small so we could hear the guide, see the spaces and hear the questions and answers. I learned Seattle history I did not know about and enjoyed seeing different underground spaces. Everyone on our tour - locals and visitors loved the tour. I highly recommend it." -July 5, 2013 Trip Advisor review.
What?s your favorite part about your job?
Seeing the aha moment on guests' faces as they realize how the underground spaces they are in were created more than 120 years ago. Taking folks below ground and back in time to see, feel, and touch the Seattle of the the 1890's.
What does a city taste like? If you're on Taste Seattle Food Tours' excursions, it tastes like the multicultural blending of cuisines found in Pioneer Square, one of Seattle's oldest neighborhoods. An intimate walking excursion travels through the neighborhood at a leisurely pace and visits eight independent businesses, from boutiques such as Intrigue Chocolate Co. and Sous Sol Winery to gourmet caf?s and restaurants. Each stop introduces a small business owner, chef, or other culinary artist who divulges some of their establishment's history and explains its role in the neighborhood, whether as a cutting-edge food destination or the place where all the celebrity farmers hang out. Locations are chosen for their passion for seasonal and sustainable ingredients as well as their stories. Between each stop, the guide also delves into the history of Pioneer Square and points out some interesting elements of its Renaissance Revival architecture.
Big cities have a wealth of entertainment, but the options can be overwhelming if you don?t know where to start. Luckily, the founders of Festivals Inc. have established several events that gather the Seattle region?s diverse food, drink, and music all in one place. Their flagship shindig, Groupon Bite of Seattle, attracts over 400,000 people with healthy appetites to try cuisine from more than 60 eateries alongside craft beers and live bands. During the fall, Oktoberfest Northwest and Oktoberfest Monroe celebrate the German beer festival, while the Taste of Tacoma rings in the last weekend of June with culinary offerings from its titular city.
