We thoroughly enjoyed the underground tour. It was both informative and entertaining. We learned about the establishments that existed beneath street level (tavern and gambling hall that continued to do business during prohibition, living quarters for Chinese workers, meat-cutting room for the butcher, etc.), but we also visited and learned about one of the brothels that continued to do business into the latter part of the 20th century. Our tour guide did a wonderful job responding to questions, as well as delivering the historical content in a lighthearted, comedic manner. Highly recommended!

Probably one of the best tours we have ever been on. A real must do! Takes almost two hours. Goes through a lot of the underground and a brothel. Very authentic.

Made a big mistake! Didn't realize reservations were needed and completely missed the opportunity for the tour! Darn! Looks great and will do it correctly next year!

We enjoyed the tour and learning the history of the Chinese, the red light district, and Pendleton itself. The tour guide was informative and friendly. The tour took two hours. She didn't go too fast and we seniors were able to keep up. There was a flight of 31 steps that one needs to not take too fast. I do recommend this for anyone in the area. I think it will be great when they do the "living" tour.
