PROJECT: Seattle Bites Food Tour
Seattle Bites Food Tours give tourists and locals a way to experience the rich history and culture of Seattle’s famous Pike Place Market while sampling the crème de la crème of the food.
Jan Marie Johnson and her husband, Mark Brietfuss wanted to create a tour that caters to the participant and creates an unforgettable experience. Since 2008, the couple has worked together to build a tour that shows there is more to the market than just food, fish, and flowers.
On each tour, participants receive a bag with napkins, map, plastic ware, and a Listen Technologies receiver and ear speaker. The equipment is easy to use and as the tour progresses it quickly becomes apparent that not only are the receivers a nice touch, but a necessity. As the market bustles with activity, it allows the tour guide to use the transmitter and seamlessly talk to those participating. In addition to hearing every word, it keeps the tour guide within reach, even if not in sight and able to relay directions, history, and instructions.
As their website states: …the tour of The Market is more than simply a sampling of big and delicious bites. Seattle Bites Food Tour will share with you the complex and fascinating tales of how and why The Market got started, the heroes that created and saved it, and the beloved merchants who have made The Market their home.SYSTEM COMPONENTS
