Earl the Pearl of Seattle, Best tour guide ever.

Earl, is the best ever guide in Seattle. Luckily, there was just the three of us, so we got a personalized tour. He took us to the locks and gave a great impression of a seal, the houseboats, Pike's Market and a great cup of coffee at the Panama Hotel. We hope to go back to Seattle soon and catch a ride with Earl again. Earl the Pearl of Seattle.

We can’t even start to say what an amazing tour this was! Earl was knowledgeable, professional and absolutely hilarious! He made our time in Seattle so much better. After his overview, we felt comfortable navigating the city by ourselves. He introduced us to things that we didn’t even know existed. If you’re in Seattle, this is definitely the tour to take!

Earl was a great tour guide. He was very friendly and funny. We felt comfortable as soon as he picked us up. It was a very relaxing tour, and we learned a lot during the trip. I like the fact it wasn’t rushed, and we were able to just enjoy the scenery. I would book him again when we visit Seattle again.

Thank you so much, your sister had to the custom shirt of herself and I was thinking how can I get one of myself! Other guest were commenting as well, and sang happy birthday. As the song goes: "It was a good day" by Icecube for those reading this and thinking what song is that? Thank you. Earl

Great tour and great tour guide! Funny and interesting! My entire party had a great time. Earl went out of his way to pick us up and drop us off at our preferred location, which was super helpful since we came from out of town. Highly recommended!
