Go underground on a 1-hour walking history tour through Seattle's original neighborhood. Our experienced guides lead small groups through, and beneath, Pioneer Square to the street level that existed in the 1890s. Explore underground pathways that were built more than 120 years ago, learning details on early Seattle history, why these spaces were built, and how they have been used (and misused) over the years. Marvel at how this once Indian encampment has since transformed into one of the 20 largest cities in the United States.

Well I came across this tour an throught it would make for a fun afternoon. We live in Tacoma and don’t come up north often but thought we’d make a day if it. This tour was informative, interesting and we really enjoyed the details and facts from Dave. He made the tour fun, the group was fairly small so it felt very intimate. I highly recommend for a fun fact filled hour.
Thursday afternoon tour, Mike was very knowledgeable and made it entertaining and interesting.Highly recommended
This tour takes you below and above the historic section of Seattle. The history is spellbinding and our tour guide was very entertaining. It was raining the day we went so there were some puddles to deal with so wear comfortable shoes that are appropriate for the weather. This is a walking tour but except for 2 sets of steps (not steep) this is an easy walk. You will never see Seattle the same way again after this tour...we really enjoyed it and highly recommend it to visitors and especially to locals who do not know the rich history of the city.
