For those who want an inside edge on navigating Seattle’s culinary stops—whether that means beating the line for a salumi platter or sampling a neighborhood’s best banh mi sandwiches—food tours are the way to go. Options abound in Seattle for various tastes and locations, from a chocolate-focused walking tour to a biking introduction to boardwalk treats. The experience can be as fulfilling as it is filling.

Eat Seattle

Think cooking class meets food tour. Eat Seattle’s two-hour, chef-led tours of Pike Place Market start with a shopping trip through the market and end with a cooking demonstration in the market’s Atrium Kitchen. Look for classes led by Emily Moore, one of Seattle’s first star chefs and a longtime culinary school instructor.

Savor Seattle

One of the first foodie tour companies, Savor Seattle features a variety of walking tours, including a sweet look at the city’s many chocolatiers and a filling sample of the hip eats and sips on Capitol Hill. Its early-access tour of Pike Place Market showcases a unique side of the market, before the crowds come through.

Taste Seattle

This tour company offers a biking food tour of Alki Beach in West Seattle, as well as a walking tour of Pioneer Square, covering both the neighborhood’s rich history and its status as a newly hot center for fine food. Expect not only surprising discoveries in Seattle neighborhoods but also great eats in generous sample sizes.

Ethnic Seattle

Restaurateur Taylor Hoang knows the ins and outs of Seattle’s Chinatown and Little Saigon, and she shares all of that knowledge with visitors during a Chinatown-International District food tour. Navigate through her favorite stops, from a tofu factory to a seafood market to a local tea shop for tastes and dining recommendations. Her insights, whether showing you how to peel longan fruits or sharing her picks for dim sum, open up a world of flavors.
