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.

What a pleasant way to spend an hour in Seattle. Guide Jim was a fount of knowledge and made the experience interesting, informative with just the right amount of humour - although an hour is bit tight - recommended

Great tour. Small group numbers and very knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide. They were happy to answer off topic questions as well as the normal expected questions regarding the tour. Learnt heaps on the tour and found it absolutely fascinating. The genuine excitement from the tour guide for history was energising.

This tour was amazing. Don't be thrown off by the haunted tours that also take place here after dark, the daytime tour, with tour guide Dan is AMAZING! He is charming and entertaining without being over-the-top comical. He did an amazing job of setting the scene for what it was really like on the "ground floor" of Seattle. We learned... More

Excellent tour guide. He had a great personality and managed the group well. We felt that the tour was well worth the price.You will gain access to areas that you could not see otherwise and learn part of Seattle's interesting history.
