Very impressed by the knowledge of area underground history by the tour guide (He previously was with Bill Speidel Tours for 16 years). Smaller group size, kid friendly, interactive and interesting. What more could you want.

This is a great tour. You may feel you have to choose between this and the Underground Tour. You don't. Both are very good, themed differently, and have their own locations to explore. I suggest splashing for both. This one is a little less crowded and more personal as a result. At least it was when I visited. It is... More

This came recommended to us from a friend that had previously lived in Seattle so we decided to try it and were super glad we did. It was only $15 for an hour tour but it was FULL of information and just so fun to see the "original" Seattle! Our guide, Jim was excellent!! His background made him a wonderful... More

This family outing is so worth the time it takes to get from Bremerton to Seattle. We all loved the fascinating tidbits of history, the humor that our guide, Jim, added to the presentation, and the awesome underground and how how it is preserved. Some of the architecture on buildings is so beautiful and something we didn't pay close enough... More

I spend a couple of days in Seattle after a business trip and added this tour to my agenda. The group was only about 5 people, which allowed us to ask questions and really get a feel for the area. The tour went through three different underground areas, and showed us what to look for above ground to see part... More

I went with my grandpa for a belated Christmas gift since he had seen a little bit of the underground years ago when he worked construction. We learned a lot about the underground and walked away with a lot of information! We really enjoyed the tour and I would go again! I even had to reschedule the day before the... More

I live in the Seattle area and my sister came to town from Portland. I had heard great things about the Seattle underground tour and had yet to experience it myself. I thought this would be a perfect, fun activity for us to enjoy together. Tickets were about $15 each and for the hour long tour, well worth the cost.... More

This was a very interesting tour and I did enjoy it. In my opinion it was a bit expensive for the tour and there were way too many people in each group which took away some enjoyment factor.

Skippydoo 22, Thanks for the feedback, and we are glad you enjoyed your tour. However, your use of the phrase "too many people in each group" has us wondering if you took our competitor's underground tour. They start in a restored saloon with a large group that often exceeds 150 people. After a short introduction they break into "smaller'" groups... More

Did the underground tour with this company. Jerry was our tour guide. He did an excellent job giving the history of the city and how Seattle came to be what we see today. Our family of 4 adults were really pleased. I highly recommend it!
