Downtown Seattle Trolley Tour
Starting May 6th! Our Downtown Seattle Tour showcases the best of Seattle. This roughly 1-hour hop-on/hop-off tour takes you to all of the major sights in downtown Seattle. Jump on or off the trolley at any one of the 12 stops as often as you like; just be sure to purchase your ticket ahead of time. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the city while our tour narration brings the fascinating history of Seattle to life. You'll also get insider information on where to dine, shop and more.
Trying to get to the game on time? Our Stadium stop gets you close to the sports stadiums, restaurants, pubs and shops for all major Sounders, Seahawks, and Mariners home games. Avoid game-day crowds and parking hassles; just hop on the trolley and ride it to the stadium. It’s that easy!
The Downtown Seattle Trolley Tour connects you to some of Seattle's best sites—all in one beautiful trolley ride. See well known landmarks like the Space Needle, Pioneer Square and Pike Place Market. Climb 900 ft and 73 stories high to visit the Sky View Observatory on the top of the Columbia Center building, and get a stunning 360° view of Seattle. Hop off at the waterfront stops to see vibrant street performers, shop with family-friendly vendors and watch ferries cross Elliott Bay.
There is so much to do! Take a ferry ride to Canada with Victoria Clipper or stay local and take a boat tour with Argosy Cruises. Stop for a bite to eat at Duke's Chowder House or Paddy Coyne’s on the waterfront. Hop off at Pioneer Square and take the underground tour of Seattle with Beneath the Streets. Or, if spooky stories are your thing, take a tour with Spooked in Seattle. Tour the Space Needle; visit the famous Chihuly Garden and Glass Exhibit or the EMP Museum, all at the Seattle Center. While you’re there, dip your toes in the International Fountain and watch as water performs a virtual ballet to music. There is something for everyone!
Our Downtown Seattle Trolley Tour will have full narration options in English as well as Mandarin and Japanese starting end of May.
