It was a toss up for us which underground tour to take but we're glad we did this one. It was a small group (only 5 of us) and it was much more personal then the groups of 20+ we saw in the other tours. Very informative about the history of Seattle - the tour guide was great! Took you... More

Thanks for the great review! We are so glad you enjoyed our tour and agree that smaller groups make for a nicer tour. To be fair, however, sometimes we also have groups as large as 20. But you'll never see groups of 30 or 40 on a Beneath The Streets tour. That 's one of the ways we differentiate ourselves... More

Terry Lynn provided an extremely entertaining, lively, and factual tour. I found the historical facts to be very interesting and there was a lot to see. I would recommend bringing your camera. I didn't think to take mine because most places don't allow pictures but you are welcome to take as many pictures as you would like. I would definitely... More

Our family recently visited Seattle for the first time, and with recommendations from Trip Advisor, decided to take this tour. Wow, what a surprise! The history of Seattle was so interesting from underground. Our tour guide, Terrie Lynn, was very knowledgable and energetic, but not in a "scripted" kind of way. The tour was approximately one hour, which was great... More

I learned a lot on this tour. It was a great way to learn about the history of the city. I took my mother on the tour who really enjoyed it and was able to handle the stairs. Definitely worth looking into.

I am so glad that this tour only does small groups. It allows for questions but also allows you to hear all of Terry Lynne's jokes. She is witty and SO KNOWLEDGEABLE and helpful. It is amazing that Seattle survived and there IS ALOT going on "Beneath the Streets"

Great tour, taking in some interesting aspects of Seattle that I did not know were there. This tour was a small group and lasted about 60 - 90 mins. The tour guide was very informative and witty (sorry I can't remember her name). Well worth doing to see another side of the City and learn about the City's history. We... More

We asked first if this would be too tiresome for our elderly father, and though there were a couple flights of stairs and we covered a large area, he hung in there. We planned to do this on our last day only if we had time, and we are glad we did! It was worth it to learn the history... More

Fascinating history of Seattle. Very informative, nice easy pace. Small groups so you have an opportunity to ask questions. One of the highlights of our trip. Well worth the money.

My husband and I had two free days in Seattle. Since we enjoy history, we decided to do the Beneath the Streets tour. It was really a lot of fun and informative stories about early Seattle.
