    OVERVIEW
    Discover the panoramic beauty and must-see highlights of Seattle in just a few hours, leaving time to explore the destinations you find most intriguing later on your own. Your introduction to the city will begin with a photo stop at the Space Needle, an icon since being built for the 1962 World’s Fair. You will also see CenturyLink Field, the sports stadium for Seattle’s professional football and soccer teams, and Pioneer Square, the city’s oldest neighborhood. The term “skid row” was coined in this now-elegant district, a reference to the logged trees that were once slid down greased skids to the sawmill. There will be plenty more to explore in Pike Place Market, the city’s oldest and largest farmers market. Don’t miss the “flying fish,” a spectacle in which the fishmongers toss even large fish to each other to save steps and entertain the onlookers. The original Starbucks is also in the market.

    • See Seattle’s highlights in just a few hours, leaving you with a great overview of the city.
    • Pause for photos at the Space Needle and pass by Seattle’s modern sports stadium.

    OVERVIEW
    Explore the remains of the original city that lie beneath Pioneer Square by walking the eerie subterranean passages with a guide that will regale you with stories of Seattle’s raucous past. A raging fire in 1889 destroyed a 25-square-block area and most of the district’s wooden buildings. During the re-construction that followed, fill dirt was added to raise the low-lying swampy streets and retaining walls were built, effectively burying the old city. For decades, this underground world was forgotten, as fire-resistant stone buildings were erected well above the former level of the city. Today, Seattle’s so-called basement is one of the city’s most unusual attractions. As you meander through the tunnel-like passageways, you will see Seattle’s original streets and first-floor storefronts of buildings that have been long buried. It will be like walking through a time capsule. To enhance the experience, the guide will describe the rogues and smugglers that once inhabited Seattle’s underground.



    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Walk along some of Seattle’s original streets, which have long been buried underground.
    • Gain an understanding of how and why parts of the original city were covered over.
    • Hear entertaining stories of the ne’er-do-wells that once lived in this underground world.

    OVERVIEW
    Sample a selection of wines at two celebrated wineries around Woodinville, an idyllic river valley setting on the outskirts of Seattle. You will first stop at Chateau Ste. Michelle, a winery established more than 50 years ago on the early 20th-century estate of a lumber baron. It eventually branched into two wineries—one for reds, the other for whites, which you will visit. Following an enlightening tour of the vineyards, you will taste several wines that may include a Chardonnay with ripe pineapple and butterscotch flavors and perhaps a Sauvignon Blanc that offers the bright fruit character of melons. The second winery will be chosen the day of the excursion from the hundreds in the Columbia Valley wine country. As the valley encompasses more than a third of the state, the terroir varies considerably from winery to winery. Even so, the Merlots are typically redolent of flavors such as sweet cherries, raspberries and chocolate.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Enjoy wine tastings at two esteemed wineries in the river valley around Woodinville.
    • Discover why certain varietals were planted while touring the vineyards.
    • Learn about the various terroirs that produce the valley’s award-winning wines.
