Response from JennieSavor, Guest Relations Manager at Food and Cultural Walking Tour of Pike Place Market
Responded 4 days ago
Thank you so much for your recent visit with us. We are glad that you enjoyed your tastings, and are sorry to hear that you didn't have the best experience possible. We try to share as many of the rich cultural facts about the market as we can in a short time period because we're so proud of it. Sometimes it's tricky to keep the balance between history lesson and lighthearted activity. We take feedback seriously, and thank you for taking the time to write in. Any suggestions from guests can only help to improve others' experiences moving forward. We'd welcome the chance to host you on another Savor Seattle tour if you are local or will be back in the area. Thank you again.
