How To Book Your Private Group Tour
Once you’ve decided which tour you would like to book for your group, there are two ways to proceed.
- Contact the Show Me Seattle Private Events Team or call their office (206-633-2489) to discuss scheduling and other options.
- Book the private Seattle tour yourself through our website. Each of our tours has a maximum capacity, so to ensure that your tour is private (with no surprise guests) book all the tickets for a tour where the maximum number of tickets are still available.

You will need to buy out all the spaces for a given time slot in order to have a private and exclusive tour experience for your group.

Private Seattle Food Tour FAQs
Give Show Me Seattle a call at 206-633-2489 and they may be able to open another time slot for you and schedule your booking over the phone.
Each tour type has the following time slots (pending real-time availability):
|Early Access VIP Tour of Pike Place Market||8:00am, 8:30am, 9:00am|
|Food and Cultural Tour of Pike Place Market||9:30am, 10:00am, 10:30am, 11:00am, 2:00pm, 2:30pm, 3:00pm, 3:30pm|
If your group’s headcount exceeds the maximum for a tour’s timeslot, we may be able to open up another timeslot that is 30 minutes before or after your primary timeslot(s).
For example: You have a group of 36 people and would like to do the Food and Cultural Tour of Pike Place Market. If space is available, we can split your group into smaller groups of 12 for timeslots of: 9:30am, 10:00am, and 10:30am.
There are several options available and the resolution for this issue ultimately depends on your flexibility and budget. Here are our recommendations in order of priority:
- Buy out all spaces for a tour’s time slot(s). As your group’s headcount fluctuates, it will not matter so long as your headcount does not exceed the maximum spaces you have already bought out. With this option, you avoid the stress and panic that often comes with the last-minute headcount changes of coordinating a large group.
- Book the number of tickets you know your group will definitely need right now, and then come back and purchase more tickets as your group size grows. The risk here is that members of the public may book for the same time slot, meaning your tour won’t be private and there may not be enough tickets later for the additional members of your group.
- Wait until you have the exact headcount and then purchase your tickets. The risk here is that there may not be enough tickets for your preferred tour type or time.
Unfortunately, we are unable to hold tours and tickets or issue refunds for unused tickets or no-shows. Spaces are confirmed and guaranteed upon receipt of payment.
That is ok! While it is ideal to get as much information upfront in the ticket booking process online, we understand the challenges of organizing an event for an entire group. Go ahead and give us as much information as you have about applicable dietary restrictions, and then follow up with each member of your group in the interim to secure and clarify their dietary restrictions.
The Show Me Seattle team will also be in touch with you as it gets closer to the date of your event.
Similar to a server in a restaurant, your tour guide works hard to ensure that your group is well-fed, taken care of, and having a rollicking good time! For all groups of 6 or more (public, private, or corporate event), a standard gratuity of 18% is customary for the tour guide. Our team will be in touch with you to secure this in advance of your tour.
Our experience continually confirms that it takes groups longer to organize and arrive at a start location than they might think. As such, please advise your group’s attendees to arrive at the start location 20 minutes prior to the event’s departure time. For example: Please arrive by 9:10 am for a 9:30 am time slot.
Our tours operate like carefully choreographed food and drink ballets! Because we have hot food and drinks waiting for us, all tours depart on time and we do not wait for late arrivals. If you are running late, please call our office and we will catch you up to the tour guide. We will not be able to save or provide “make-up” tastings for late guests.
