Found this tour through Groupon, but this would have so been worth it at the full price...but maybe I'm just a history buff. Rick does an awesome job of bringing the Klondike Gold Rush, and Seattle influence on it, to life.
Rick is the best kind of tour guide: passionate about his subject and his city, full of knowledge and able to make it fascinating! He really brought the people and places to life with his storytelling. I have lived in Seattle for over thirty years...More

Thanks, Jessica, for submitting your review. Rick's passion for Gold Rush and Seattle history is obvious, and contagious. Thanks for the 5 stars. We're glad you "enjoyed every part of the tour". We'll make sure that Rick sees this review!
My traveling is always to destinations where I have friends. But when I'm in new places I need to know about the local history and culture. Of eight days in Seattle, this Untamed Tour was the best use of my time.

If your looking for a fun tour with a difference and history is Seattle, with links to Alaska.
We visited Seattle for three days and started with a Seattle Untamed walking tour.
Rick was our host and he is brilliant, humour, history and helpful!

Great question! The Seattle Untamed Tour does not go underground. It is a mesmerizing tour above ground in the footsteps of the prospectors who poured into our neighborhood to book passage north for the Klondike gold rush. It focuses overwhelmingly on the Seattle gold rush years. Beneath The Streets offers a separate tour of the amazing underground.
