Private Eye on Seattle Tours

2012 Top Five Finalist Best City Tour on King 5's Best NW Escape

Since 1997 Private Eye Tours has offered unique and sensational tours of Seattle's dark history, mysteries, true crime & hauntings. The tours are scenic, historical and entertaining. The company was founded by Windsor Olson, a real "private eye", based upon his knowledge of Seattle's crime history and dark past. The tours have been featured in articles, travel guides and radio in both the Pacific NW and through out the world.  Nationally, we have appeared on the Investigation Discovery Channel. Local TV shows that we have appeared on include King 5's Evening Magazine, Northwest Cable News, and KSTW.  Internationally, we have been on UK's TwoFour's "Conversation with a Serial Killer" and the BBC's "The Last 48 hours of Kurt Cobain."

Since 2001 Jake, a true Seattle native, has offered the tours. Jake has a science background and life-long interest in forensics and the darker side of life. She has always had a fascination with ghosts and the paranormal and is a member of a local paranormal group. She has taught a class featuring Seattle's haunted locations at North Seattle Community College, Discover U and the University of Washington.

Five tours are currently available. The Queen Anne & Capitol Hill Mystery & Murder tours are true crime tours covering different areas of the city. Haunted Happenings: A Seattle Ghost Tour covers a wide area of the city. Our newest ghost tour "Spirits of Seattle Ghost Tour" travels through Capitol Hill, Belltown, the Market area & Downtown Seattle. It debuted in Spring 2011. Booze, Broads & Jazz Tour is our newest tour.

The tours are available year round by reservation only. They are driving tours, riding in a comfortable van, with locations where we stop that involve limited walking. The two true crime tours are usually available during the day while the Ghost Tours and the new Booze, Broads & Jazz Tour are offered at night. Please call 206 365 3739 or contact us for more information.
