Linking tour sights via light rail and streetcar!

Leave the car behind and enjoy a tour of historic Pioneer Square, the origins of Seattle, and then ride out to Capitol Hill, and the University of Washington. This tour combines several distinct neighborhoods with a visit to the Elliott Bay Bookstore, shops on Capitol Hill, and possibly the Henry Art Gallery, or Burke Museum on campus at U. W.

This tour is new, and has a lot of flexibility for a customized itinerary.


From downtown we'll ride light rail to Chinatown and Pioneer Square and enjoy the historical sights of Seattle. Then we'll ride up, and stroll the Capitol hill area, and travel on to the beautiful campus of University of Washington before returning downtown.
