Customized Tours has been a family run tour business in Western Washington for the previous 20 years. We were founded in 1989 by Lou Mensonides, and prior to 2010 we operated under the company name Customized Tours & Charters, LLC. When we began operating in 1989 we were the first small bus tour company in Seattle. We used 15 passenger vans then, but established from the beginning an emphasis on fine customer service and interesting tours by knowledgeable guides who loved and wanted to show off Seattle.
In the succeeding 20 years a lot of changes have occurred to make your tour experiences even better. We have expanded our fleet to include a number of comfortable 28 passenger mini-busses.
We now offer numerous transportation services including private group tours, group charter bus service, airport pick-up, pre and post cruise tours, as well as scheduled year round popular public tours.
Lou has now retired from the company and has passed the baton of company operations over to his son, Joel Mensonides, now the General Manager. But we have never forgotten the fundamental principal Lou set from the beginning – Keep all our tours full of fun and entertainment with knowledgeable guides who know and love Seattle. That spirit is still alive and well at Customized Tours today.
