A great way to do the Boeing factory tour from downtown Seattle

Very convenient. Tour guide collected me from my hotel lobby and the drive straight up to the Boeing factory giving interesting commentary on the way. He then handed us off to the Boeing tour guides for the factory tour which was great ! We then traveled back to Seattle with more interesting information given on route.

Although the Future of Flight exhibition was closed, we made instead a city tour before driving up to Everett to see the Boeing Factory. That was really interesting and well done and informatively. Our driver was really good and it was a pleasure to have had that drive with him
