Highlights
Learn the history of Pioneer Square from a unique, below-ground perspective
Walk the neighborhood's subterranean tunnels with a knowledgeable guide
Trace Seattle’s history from an Indigenous encampment to the 1890s to today
Seattle history tour covers the basics while leaving time for other sightseeing
What to expect
Meet your guide and group at 102 Cherry Street, near Pioneer Square, at least 10 minutes prior to your scheduled departure. Be sure to wear good walking shoes as this underground walking tour covers uneven terrain and involves ascending and descending about six flights of stairs. After a brief introduction from your guide, set off to explore one of Seattle's oldest neighborhoods and its subterranean tunnels on this guided tour. Listen to stories of Seattle's past, from the Klondike Gold Rush to Skid Row, as you wander dark passageways and then back up to street level. Over the course of three blocks, you'll cover a century of history, from the neighborhood's origins as a Coast Salish settlement to its modern iteration. It’s a perspective you can’t get by wandering on your own. The tour concludes at Occidental Park.

Sep 2021 • Friends
Our guide was extremely informative on the history aspect of the tour. Unfortunately the rest of it was extremely underwhelming. You basically walk through one basement go outside walk across the street to another basement and that’s it. The most exciting and frightening part was waiting in line while an extremely violent and belligerent homeless person threatened to stab some of the patrons children and grandchildren in the face while waiting. Save your money and do something else.

Great Experience
Jennifer was our tour guide. She was really great and knew so much especially since she was 4th generation that her and her family has been here. The tour itself was pretty fun. I do wish there was a bit more to see under ground since that was the tour name.

Fantastic tour
Sep 2021 • Friends
Fantastic tour, just amazing! We were listening to part of the tour before us, and I told my friend, "I hope we get this guide, he sounds great!" We didn't get him, but were lucky enough to get Jerry instead. He was fabulous! You could tell he had a true passion for Seattle and it's history. So knowledgeable, and a great sense of humor! He made it a point to personally connect with each guest, which was much appreciated. This tour has smaller groups than the other one, so it's more comfortable and intimate. Definitely a must do!

Very informative and fun tour! Our tour guide, Jim, added to the experience. He was entertaining and knowledgeable. We started on time and ended on time. The tour consisted of underground and on the streets that tied in with the history. Learning the history of how Seattle came to be was very fun!
