Animated tour guides weave humor, statistics, and history into an educational tapestry as Seattle Qwik Tour buses wend their way along their city route. Tours roll by locales famous for their TV cameos and cultural import, ranging from sites of emergency makeup retouching in the medical TV show Grey’s Anatomy to Sleepless House to the iconic Space Needle. The massive stone troll lurking under the Fremont Bridge terrorizes unsuspecting riders, and the Sleepless in Seattle house recalls the classic romantic comedy’s unsettling scenes of chronic insomnia. Upbeat tunes create a festive atmosphere on the bus as shutterbugs capture landmarks on film during at least two photo stops. Tours pick up and drop off passengers at either Pike Place Market or at the Space Needle.
Seattle Qwik Tour
Charles Mickelson knows Seattle so well, he can unearth trolls hiding under its bridges—specifically, the Fremont Troll, an 18-foot-high stone troll statue nestled beneath the Fremont Bridge. This is just one of the landmarks that Charles’s company, Seattle Qwik Tour, showcases on its signature 90-minute mini-coach tours. Their tour routes also pass the Space Needle, the Central District, and Viretta Park, one of Kurt Cobain’s old haunts. As the group rolls through the city, passengers learn statistics and historical tidbits from their guides while snapping photos of the scenery during periodic stops.
