Day 1 – Your journey begins in downtown Seattle, where your home-away-from-home will be at the Hyatt House Hotel Seattle/Downtown. This hotel is a stone’s throw away from the Space Needle, Olympic Sculpture Park, and EMP and Science Museum. Become acquainted with the city by enjoying a Seattle City Tour, filled with beautiful sights and a professional tour guide to narrate the way. A tour highlight includes a stop at the Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibit, located in the Seattle Center. Explore the Garden, the Glass-house and other exhibits that are featured. The evening will conclude with a lovely welcome dinner at the Seattle Space Needle.
Day 2 – Today we spend the morning at the beauty of Snoqualmie Falls. We will walk the trail to view one of Washington’s most popular sights. Located conveniently close to the Falls is a 2-acre park, an observation deck to enhance your view, and the gift shop. Our next stop of the day includes a wine tasting and tour at the Chateau Ste. Michelle where wine and heritage intersect into an unforgettable experience. After wine tasting, conclude the afternoon by enjoying a nice, casual lunch at Red Hook Brewery.
Day 3 – We transition from land to water by taking a ferry ride to Friday Harbor in the San Juan Islands, where we will take a Wildlife and Sealife Cruise. Enjoy your time on the water where you will learn about, and experience, Seattle’s beautiful wildlife, marine life, mount ranges and waterfront views. As we return to port, enjoy leisure time in Friday Harbor! Choose to eat at the various island eateries, stop and shop at different galleries and gift shops, or just sit back, relax and en-joy the view.
Day 4 – Take an opportunity to experience Seattle on your own, or continue to rest and relax, with free time in the morning and early afternoon. Moving our focus from water, and back to land, we then visit the Theo Chocolate Factory Tour. See the transformation of the cocoa bean into Theo Chocolate’s decadent creations. We complete the day at Ballard Locks seeing a salmon run and dining at Ray’s Boat House Restaurant.
Day 5 – Before heading home, the last stop on our trip is a tour of the Boeing Factory. You will surely be impressed at the Boeing Factory in the world’s largest building (by volume) as the Future of Flight Tour presents a close up view of the 747- 787 production lines, where skilled workers build these colossal airliners. End the day saying goodbye at Seattle’s Airport, catching your flight, and reminiscing about the delightful city and your fun-filled vacation.
