Thanks Leslieann for the great review! We do try to elevate the history above the humor, but as you noted what the early settlers of Seattle thought they could get away with is pretty amusing. It helps to have great guides like Jerry, whose passion...More

Our guide was very good and a wealth of knowledge. I had been on a different underground tour which was good but not as historical. I really liked looking around the spook area before going.
