How does it work?
Once you’ve decided on a tour type for your group, book tickets online for an available date and time. It’s that simple! Be ready to share the name of the “person in charge” of the group on the day-of, as well as all dietary restrictions applicable for members of the group (e.g. vegetarian, pescatarian, do not drink alcohol).
After booking your tickets, we will follow up to secure an 18% gratuity for your tour guide and confirm all dietary information for your guests. You will automatically receive a confirmation email with meeting location instructions and information you can forward to all guests in your group.
Each of our tour types has a maximum capacity per tour guide and time slot. When you book tickets, if the number of tickets available for sale on a given date and time is less than the numbers listed here, you know that there are already people from the general public booked in that time slot.
Give us a call at: 206.582.3504 ext. 0 and we can open another timeslot for you and secure your booking over the phone. You will need to buy out all spaces for a given timeslot in order to have a private and exclusive tour experience for your group.
|Tour Type||Maximum Capacity Per Timeslot|
|Early Access VIP Tour of Pike Place Market, Gourmet Seattle Tour, and Seattle Dinner Soiree||12|
|Food and Cultural Tour of Pike Place Market, Chocolate Indulgence Tour, Hip on the Hill Tour, Booze ‘n Bites Tour||16|

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 apart from your other timeslot(s).
For example: You have a group of 48 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 16 for timeslots of: 9:30am, 10:00am, and 10:30am.
Alternatively, if your group’s headcount exceeds the headcount maximums per timeslot by a factor of 1-2 people, we can usually get everyone into one group and not split them up. We have the greatest flexibility on the Seattle Dinner Soiree and can take up to 18 guests in one timeslot. Please call us to learn more about this option prior to making a purchase.
With the signature Food & Cultural Tour of Pike Place Market, we have a hard limit of 16 guests per timeslot, per Pike Place Market’s governing regulations.
There are several options available and ultimately depends on your flexibility and budget. Here are our recommendations in priority order:
- 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 are avoiding stress and panic that often comes with last-minute headcount changes with coordinating a 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 is that 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 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 and secure and clarify their dietary restrictions.
Our team will also be in touch with you as we get 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 tour or private group), 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 event.
We have found in our experience that it typically takes groups longer to organize and all arrive to a start location. As such, please advise your group’s attendees to arrive to the start location 30 minutes prior to the event’s departure time. For example: Please arrive by 9:00am for a 9:30am 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.
