Hi Tamra! We're so glad Miriam was able to show you around the Market. She certainly does love all the tastings we offer - she probably referenced her "Savor 15" she's gained since working for us. All of us in the office adore Ellenos, Beechers, Pike Place Chowder, and everywhere else we visit. Thanks for coming on our Food and Cultural tour, and we hope to see you again next time you're in Seattle!

We certainly were entertained by our guide, Justin. Loved his stories on the history and his sense of humor. I did think it was an expensive tour for the amount of samples we got. This is my second time with this tour, and I'm pretty sure we walked away very full the previous

It's such an honor to hear locals learn something and find new spots to eat when they take one of our tours! Matt especially knows how to point out hidden gems both on and off our Food and Cultural Tour. We know we don't always have options for folks with dietary restrictions, but we're glad you still enjoyed all the Market has to offer. Hopefully, we can see you on another Savor Seattle tour sometime soon!

Wonderful experience! Our group of 4 had a great time. Matt was our guide and I’m so grateful he was. His enthusiasm, passion and energy for Seattle was tangible. The history of Seattle was all new to me so it was great learning about “Spoon Man” and many others. Food choices
