Overview
Get to know Seattle's first established neighborhood, Pioneer Square, by walking its underground pathways as they existed in the 1890s in the company of a guide. Trace the city’s history, from an Indian dwelling to its Gold Rush days and up through its current state as a thriving modern neighborhood on this walking tour.
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 Salish Indian settlement to its modern iteration. It’s a perspective you can’t get by wandering on your own.
The tour concludes at Occidental Park.

NO! It’s NOT HAUNTED!!!

The first order of things to KNOW about Seattle is that there are 4 (1+1+1+1) different tour groups vying for your Tourist dollars. And they are not all equal! Mine was (to be fair) rated as Good. Is this a Must See attraction? Well if...More

Patti was an excellent guide taking us through the trials and tribulations of Seattle, its naming and its growth over the years. It was great to understand more of the history of this great city and how it has been burned down, rebuilt, and literally...More

Trip was OK. I really didn't care for Seattle, but this was as good as anything else we did there. As for your computer problems, just get rid of the Apple crap. I have no problem with my Samsung tablet.

There appears to be a typo in all of the tours of format: 10:30am Tour 12:30, 10:30am Tour 17:00 etc. The tour time is the last (or second) time listed. Do an 'Add to Cart' and you will see that 10:30am Tour 17:00 is... More
