Heather Chermak Co-owner/ Tour Guide
A wife, mother (of the cutest boy ever!) and daughter to a supportive father, comes from a family of entrepreneurs and story tellers. She left her hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada in 1995 looking for independence, a jump into adulthood and to mourn the loss of Kurt Cobain. When she arrived it was raining, she was wearing flannel and went in search for a coffee shop. She spent many years in food & beverage and event planning before stumbling upon a tour guide gig. Since then she has lead tours for the Underground Tour, Sub Seattle, Market Ghost Tours, Seattle Food Tours and Spooked in Seattle. It is a dream come true for her to continue to walk the sidewalks, telling stories about the city that stole her heart so many years ago. She likes her coffee with whiskey and her croissants with chocolate! Tours: Coffee & Pub Crawl, Seattle Kids Tour & Downtown By Foot

Ed Tour Guide/Rock Star
Ed walks and cycles all over Seattle and loves showing guests the city’s hidden gems. His tours are a mix of: 1. Cultural Seattle–history, art, architecture; 2. Popular Seattle–food, coffee, recreation; 3. Eccentric Seattle–insight on the city’s slightly schizophrenic (nice to meet you, please go away) personality; and 4. Essential Seattle–happy hour. Other topics include: lifestyles of local billionaires, the invention of hardcourt bicycle polo, and where to eat the world’s strangest-looking shellfish. He believes that seeing Seattle by foot is the perfect way to get an insider’s perspective on what makes the Emerald City a place like no other.
