Customized tours for new arrivals/students and parents
The University of Washington main campus, and Seattle University on First Hill, and Seattle Pacific University are each located in distinct neighborhoods in the city. I'll customized a walking tour for students (and parents) to visit the campus, neighborhood, and local parks. We'll also enjoy downtown areas of interest. As a custom tour, it's an afternoon of easy walks, local transportation, and Emerald City beauty.
YOU'VE JUST MOVED to Seattle? I can create a tour that shares the city's history, and culture so you'll feel at home, and enjoy our urban treasures. Seattle's museums, parks, and special city events outlined in a fun overview.
Tours are customized to your interests. Additional time is allowed for museum visits.
