While a chartered yacht is a comfortable way to tour the seas, it can only navigate city streets with the help of hundreds of unhappy pack goats. Tour Seattle in terra firma style and comfort with today's Groupon: for $15, you get one ticket to a green walking tour from Immersus Tours (a $30 value).
Immersus Tours takes Seattle tourists on an off-the-beaten-path journey through the unusual landmarks and businesses that natives frequent on a daily basis. Reflecting the community's passion for environmental protection, the appropriately emerald tour itinerary takes place on foot and uses public transportation to visit a few of the city's most dynamic neighborhoods. Stroll through Green Lake's vibrant parks and wander winding pathways packed with outdoor enthusiasts. In Queen Anne, sightseers can savor one of the most gasp-swindling views of the downtown skyline. And a trek through the eclectic and artistic Fremont district will introduce you to bridge-dwelling trolls and the controversial 16-foot statue of Lenin, which controversially comes to life during full moons and yodels all night long. While there, you'll get to knock back a cup of coffee or grab a bite at one of the quirky eateries and coffee shops. Tours last four hours and cover about 4 miles of walking, so save bulky diving suits for excavating sunken pirate ships and be prepared to become a fully naturalized munchkin in the Emerald City.
TripAdvisors give Immersus Tours an average of five owl eyes and rank it seventh out of more than 200 attractions in Seattle:
