Guide Bio

Felicia began life in a small rural community in a land-locked state. She gained an early appreciation for fresh produce as her parents planted a huge garden every summer. She believed early on that she didn’t like seafood (do fish sticks really count as seafood)? After high school, she ventured out into the world and lived on ten different islands over a span of four years. There she discovered that eating fresh food from the sea is a life-altering experience. She has since been to over 25 different countries and found the best part of traveling to be experiencing a different culture through food.

Felicia is an avid supporter of local, seasonal food, farmers’ markets and eating at the many amazing restaurants we have in Seattle. She united her love of writing and food and is a co-author of a local food blog.

Taste Seattle Food Tours is the perfect vehicle for Felicia to share her passion for local Seattle food hotspots with both locals and visitors to the Emerald City.

    As seen on: Yelp 5.0 star rating 7/19/2013 Having lived in Seattle for over 20 years I’m astonished to be shown such beautiful new taste sensations on the Taste Seattle Tour. The tour guides knowledge of culinary arts and Seattle history made for a delicious and engaging adventure. I also informed my wife that I will now need to have an open relationship so I could marry the pastrami sandwich at Tat’s! Kelly R. Seattle, WA

    As seen on: Yelp 5.0 star rating 8/23/2013 Wonderful tour! Felicia was fun and knowledgeable . Our food and drink stops all had phenomenal tastings, and many of our stops featured tastings of things not yet available, including exclusive wine. We also got to skip a few very long lines. I recommend this trip for visitors, though local will get something out of it too. My friend has lived here for a few years and had a blast as well. Mitch K. Mountain View, CA 138 friends 4 reviews

    As seen on: Yelp 4.0 star rating 9/24/2013 1 check-in Felicia was great! She was extremely friendly and knowledgable about the area. I loved learning about the history and culture of the area. The hidden waterfall was a must see! My only qualm was that the samples were pretty small for the price we paid, with the exception of the Philly cheesesteak (delicious, one of the best I’ve ever tasted!). Katie K.

    As seen on: Yelp 5.0 star rating 7/23/2014 Alki like you’ve never experienced it before! So we went on the Alki bike and bite tour, which was only their second time. It was hands down one of the best experiences ever! I’ve been to Alki a number of times, tried out the various locations, etc.; but Felicia brought it to LIFE! It was great to get the history behind not only the general location but the stops along the way. Throuw in the bikes on a beautiful day and it was priceless! Totally worth every penny. Jon F.

    As seen on: Yelp 4.0 star rating 8/30/2014 1 check-in My husband and I took the Alki Beach Bikes & Bites tour for our anniversary and we had a great afternoon. We are new to Seattle and hadn’t explored this area yet. What better way than to get on a bike and see the gorgeous scenery while trying new food? I was a little anxious because I hadn’t ridden a bike in about 20 years but you know what, it’s just like riding a bike! LOL. Felecia was a good tour guide, very informative but also low key, not intrusive or in your face. We enjoyed that. The food we tasted was good, we will definitely go back for fish n chips and also brunch at Salty’s. I’m giving the tour 4 stars instead of 5 because my bike was kind of wonky, the tire could have used some more air and the handlebars kept slipping. So be sure and test your bike around the parking lot before you take off. But other than that I highly recommend this tour for a fun way to spend the afternoon. Susan M.

    “Taste of Seattle is EXACTLY what I was looking for in a tour!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013 I went on this tour with little expectation as I’ve lived here for 12 years and thought I knew where all the good spots were. Well this tour really opened my eyes to what the Pioneer Square area has to offer – not only in it’s rich history, but great local eateries. The pace of the tour is well managed where we stopped at each place to try their most popular menu item (some were paired with great local wines too!). The tour guide provided great insight into the Pioneer Square neighborhood that I never knew about. This is a great tour for locals and visitors alike and of course for those foodies that want to discover new places to try. It’s a great option when you have family and friends that visit and you don’t know where to take them. I especially enjoyed the Sake sampling on this tour and the chocolatier shop was delicious! If you’ve been here as long as I have and want to discover what Pioneer Square has to offer and it’s rich history – this is the tour for you. I will definitely recommend to my family and friends when they ask or visit. Wear comfortable shoes and clothing as this tour is about 3+ hours long – not a lot of walking as you might think (just climbing stairs, uphill walking…etc.).

    As seen on: TripAdvisor “Special Treat in Pioneer Square” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013 My husband and I used a groupon coupon for what became a private tasting and historical tour with Felicia.We were on vacation and she accomodated us in our choice of dates. We did not feel rushed to complete the tour although we probably spent about an hour more than advertised because she was so interesting and personable. She conveyed the history behind different aspects of Pioneer Square as well as the personal stories of some of the shop keepers. There were 8 enjoyable stops, one of the nicest was sitting at a waterfall oasis and sampling a variety of different, uniquely flavored salamis. Another, (Philly Cheesesteak sandwiches),brought back memories of our East Coast roots. Not too much walking and plenty of food. Visited August 2013 Hondo3700 Plano, Texas

    As seen on: TripAdvisor “ABSOLUTELY FIRST-CLASS PIONEER SQUARE FOOD Tour” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013 I was very, very pleased by the food tour arranged by Taste Seattle. I live in Seattle and thought I was familiar with most downtown food venues. NO, I was wrong! Taste Seattle found little family-owned businesses that welcomed us with open arms. The arrangements had already been made ahead of time with the owners and it was a seamless and professional experience. I wish it were open in the winter so I could take out-of-town friends there in November and December, but I understand the “chance” of inclement weather sort of precludes a downtown outside walking tour. Well, I’ll wait for the Spring and do this again, for sure. At least, I live in Seattle, so I can visit these places on my own. And I WILL do that! Thanks, Felicia!

    As seen on: TripAdvisor “Run, don’t walk, to this delightful, delicious and heartwarming tour!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013 I was born and raised in Seattle and have thought it a shame as Pioneer Square has grown quieter over time. It is our first historic district filled with colorful stories of pioneers, Native Americans, gold rush profiteers, and many more. This tour revels in the reawakening of this area for restaurants and retail. Felicia was a wonderful guide who brings the past to life and she is also very organized. The food and drink were prepared and ready for us (no standing in line with the lunch crowd!) and food allergies and preferences were noted in advance. This is local artisan cuisine. Amazing to find out all the good things happening in the area. The owners were very personable and their food and drink delicious. Some are so tucked away, you wouldn’t ever know they were there…. Run, don’t walk, to take this tour whether you are a resident or a visitor. The experience is unique and it is heartwarming to see so many people following their passion . Plus, the food and drink were terrific. Visited September 2013 nancir1 Seattle, Washington

Felicia was very informative, provided history of the city and personal stories behind each of the food vendors we visited. We tasted coffee, wine, chocolates, flavored soda, and salami. Yummy! Definitely would recommend this tour to anyone going to Seattle. Visited September 2013 Jean R Oakland, California

    As seen on: TripAdvisor “Great Fun!” 4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013 Having lived in the Seattle area all of my life, it’s always nice to get a new take on the city. Felicia was super informative about city facts and fun details of the restaurant owners. The food was delicious and full of variety. I would most definitely recommend for a fun outing whether you are visiting or just need a reason to visit the city. Visited October 2013 Gina S Redmond, Washington,

    As seen on: TripAdvisor “Vroooom…bikes and bites on Alki…so fun!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014 I love riding bikes so was very interested in the opportunity to combine biking with gorgeous views. Oh, and delicious food! Who doesn’t like food? We started with Hawaiian food from Marination Ma Kai (big, delicious portion to fortify for the ride!) then picked up our rented beach cruisers and took off. This Taste Seattle experience seemed more like an adventure than a tour. Most of the bikes had cute baskets to hold our bags and cameras which was convenient. This is a beautiful area of Seattle and Taste Seattle gives a wonderful introduction to the area. Our tour ended at Salty’s, a wonderful place to spend happy hour after the tour! Enjoy…I know I did.

    As seen on: TripAdvisor “Tasting in Seattle” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014 If you want to see an off the beaten track part of the city, ride over on the water taxi, sample foods from some outstanding restaurants, and get in some exercise on a coaster style bike, this is the tour for you. Felicia was a friendly tour leader full of knowledge on the history of this part of town. We were also greeted warmly by the folks running the restaurants where we stopped. The highlights for me were the fish and chips at Spud’s and the white chocolate cake at Salty’s. Visited July 2014 newurban14 Gaithersburg, Maryland

    As seen on: TripAdvisor “Great for both local and out-of-town tourists” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014 I have lived in Seattle for about a year but had not yet spent time on Alki Beach. My friend was in town visiting from Eastern Washington, and we decided to give this tour a try. It was one of my favorite local excursions yet. I hadn’t been on a bike in a while, but you know the saying, and the 6-or-so-mile ride was very pleasant (and appropriate for people of almost all fitness levels). Felicia did a great job of giving us some insights and history about different locations along the tour without making it feel too touristy. The cadence of the tour was great–I never felt like we were lingering in one spot for too long, but we were also allowed to sit down and enjoy ourselves at the different food stops along the way. Our “tasting” options were delicious and diverse. And filling. I was happy I hadn’t eaten breakfast that morning. Overall, I felt like I really got a great Alki experience and was able to visit more places than I would have if I had just gone over for a day trip on my own. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting from out of town and even local Seattleites looking for a fun afternoon activity. One tip: if it’s a sunny day (lucky you!) and you are fair-skinned like I am, make sure to pack your sunscreen. Visited July 2014 Susie N Seattle, Washington

    As seen on: TripAdvisor “Great Team Event” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013 Our work department took this great “foodie” tour of old Pioneer Square Seattle today. Born and raised in Seattle and yet learned history I never knew! Loved each stop and the variety of “tastes” available. I plan to revisit a few of the stops for a full meal and soak up the beauty of old Seattle. The tour guide was so friendly and knowledgable. Highly recommend.

    As seen on: TripAdvisor “Foodie tour for natives & visitors alike!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013 I LOVED this tour! I’m a native Seattleite so wasn’t sure if I’d learn anything new and boy was I wrong! I had no idea you could sample saki in our city & fine saki too!u So many delicious tastes and drink treats I can’t pick a favorite. Felicia & Roen are lovely well informed hosts who have done all the work to find the unique and sumptuous side of Pioneer Square. If you love food and interesting facts about a city, you will love this tour too! Visited July 2013 Carolyn Abbott Seattle, Washington

    As seen on: TripAdvisor “Local Seattle foodies and history buffs unite!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013 This tour combined my two favorite tourist activities; eating and history. We sampled locally made wine, chocolate and many other delights. Felicia is a down to earth, friendly and informative hostess. I learned so much about a town I thought I knew well and am looking forward to returning to many of the locations. We had so much fun that the whole group actually did return to one of the first restaurants immediately afterward for drinks and conversation. Well worth the money and time. Enjoy!

    As seen on: TripAdvisor “Alki Bike Tour – Delightful!” 5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014 We did the new Alki Beach bike tour this weekend and it was great! I’ve done the Pioneer Square tour and the food on the Alki was more beach-y (like sliders, pizza, fish & chips) but it was excellent quality beach food. We sampled from five places (two were right next to each other – pizza from one and beer from the other) and the portions were perfect for the quantity of food plus bike riding. The pace on the bikes was perfect, and it helped us burn off all the calories. And as usual, I learned a lot about the area from Felicia, who kept the tour moving and interesting. The scenery was gorgeous, and the beach cruiser bikes were easy to ride. All in all, a really good experience and highly recommended.
