Queen Anne Tour

Seattle's original true crime tour explores the Queen Anne, Pioneer Square and Chinatown neighborhoods of Seattle.

 
Grossly enlightening - Had a great time with Jake and found her to be very well informed not only on the notorious side of Seattle, but all aspects of the city itself. I am a true crime fanatic so this tour was right up my alley (and we went through some of those alleys)... you see parts of Seattle you won’t see on a regular tour.

A touch of Seattle Style Noir

In the annals of crime of any great city, there is always one case that for sheer savagery will never be forgotten. No professional criminal could ever match its fury, for it is the record of murder without reason, of fear and of terror of a killer who strikes without warning.
— Film noir movie "Without Warning"

The above quote also describes a Seattle crime recently featured on Investigation Discovery TV and covered on the tour.

This tour visits the sites of some of Seattle's most infamous crimes -- both solved and unsolved -- which are vividly described by Jake, a real storyteller!

Out of the mist comes the target vehicle...There’s this gal, see. She’s in red, too, at least her sweater...the color of the van...She’s a looker, all right. Blonde, short hair. Leggy. You know the type. The kinda babe who loves trouble and takes you with her. This must be...it is...Jake.
