About Us Seattle Free Walking Tours’ mission is to educate others about Seattle’s diverse history and culture while providing work opportunities for members of the community. The organization is a nonprofit, which means every penny it receives through direct donations (see goes towards fulfilling their mission. At the end of each tour the guides are compensated by accepting tips from people who can pay as little or as much as they like. Suggested contributions are $15, similar to the Seattle Art Museum. This service was inspired by the free walking tours that currently exist in cities throughout Europe.
