To The Emerald City (Part 2) : Pike Place Market Tour

So I failed to post the part 2 of the Seattle blog last week, it's been non-stop busyness for me since our weekend getaway.  But in case you missed part 1 of blog, you can always check them out HERE. Last September, during our trip up to the Pacific Northwest we tried out the Gourmet Seattle Tour by Savor Seattle Food Tours.  Initially skeptical of food tours, the tour proved us wrong and blew us away by the awesome tour guide, the amount food we indulged and awesome overall experience.  So this time around, we signed up for TWO different tours and for this part 2 photo-blog, I'll focus on our Pike Place Market Tour:
