Alki Tours

Letter of Recommendation

Posted in Raves and Reviews

To Fellow Chamber of Commerce,

The Seattle Chamber of Commerce offers a Tourism Travel Program as one of the many events we organize. The purpose of the rips is to raise funds for the Chamber and also provide high quality travel opportunities.

We have partnered with Alki Tours on three trips: The Costa del Sol in November of 2012, Thailand January of 2013 and South Africa in March of 2013.

All three tours offered excellent itineraries, accommodations and local tour guides at very reasonable prices. Alki was also willing to work with me to make several changes to the South Africa itinerary.

I handled all questions and registrations from our travelers and the office staff at Alki Tours was great to work with as back-up to help me answer questions, handle special requests and make all of the final arrangements.

These tours were a success and had very happy travelers who want to travel with us again!

Tour overall excellent.
Guide Kobe is excellent, as always.
He is courteous and attentive to all tour members. He suggested e-mail of comments rather than filling out the comment cards.
The driver and bus were excellent.

Northern Quest

Posted in Raves and Reviews

We went on the Northern Quest trip in May, and the whole thing was great. Of course we had Kody as a guide, so what else did we need?

Accommodations were lovely, all arrangements were more than expected. We had arranged for my niece in Spokane to join us for the boat tour at Coeur d’alene, and that worked out so well!! Thank you.

Also, it was an unexpected trip downtown Spokane to the tram and carousel. We didn’t know about this, and it was just perfect.

The Wind Farm was much more than expected, and the driver was lovely. Thank you so much.

We enjoyed our tour to the Chuckanut restaurant very much. The Motorcoach Driver, the new bus and Tour Director were excellent, Restaurant food service was excellent/beautifully done, as well. The prime rib had no parts well-done, but they cooked it more when requested. It was a very nice dry day, although cloudier than on our previous to Boeing-Everett with Alki, so continuous mountains not shown off as well. Were hoping to see more of the waterfront drive, so guess we didn’t read brochure well enough. Looking forward to our next trip on our own with out-of-town guests now that we’re more familiar with the area

Thanks for a great trip!

Leavenworth Snow Bus

Hello – My husband and I have just returned from a day trip to Leavenworth from the Northgate pick up location. Kody (with a long and difficult last name) was our guide and Charles was the bus driver. I would just like you to know how great these tour providers were!!! I am a registered nurse as well as an experienced tour guide myself (I have planned and guided several tours of junior high orchestra kids to Portland, Idaho, Vancouver..including hotel overnights, Amtrak, MTR busses). Kody was exceptional in his professionalism, attention to detail, meticulous cleanliness (which he probably didn’t know I was watching but he was in the seat ahead of me and I am an RN so I notice those things The driver was excellent and accommodating as well. We have never taken an Alki tour before. Today was our 29th anniversary and we had a very nice time! We would certainly not hesitate in taking an Alki tour again!
Thank you to all the other passengers who were ON TIME (even early!) and well behaved and to our tour operators for making this a great experience!! Happy Holidays, Cheryl D.
