Seattle By Foot's co-owners Heather Chermak and Penny Truitt first began planning tours years before they opened their tour guide business. With a love of storytelling and a passion for the city, they would brainstorm their ideal tours over cocktails and dinner. At Seattle By Foot, they bring the same joy and excitement of creation to their tours, each of which aim to educate and entertain, much like a teacher that juggles textbooks.
Their tours include a coffee crawl and a pub tour, which explore some of the city's more distinct establishments, complete with beverages, brews, and food tastings. They also lead a downtown walking tour, and offer guide-for-hire services. For this service, clients can customize a tour based on their own interests, and the guides will research and then lead tourists through unique sites and hidden gems.
