Beginning June 2017, new rules will apply to all guided tours in Pike Place Market, on the street and in PDA buildings. All tour guides must display visible permit badges. Tour guides will have to be sponsored by a company that has a license to conduct tours issued by the PDA. These companies must provide commercial liability insurance, have tour routes described in detail, and list all businesses locations they will visit. Beginning this year, an access fee will be charged for each tour guest as a cost to each of the tour businesses. Group size will be limited to a maximum of 16 persons per guide. If you have any questions please contact John Turnbull, Director of Asset Management, at JohnT@pikeplacemarket.org.
