There was some interesting stories but most of the items are dated tacky replicas. Our guide was just repeating facts, she wasn't passionate about sharing Pendleton's history nor wanted to answer any questions.

Reservations required. This fun tour does require walking up and down several flights of stairs and walking over uneven flooring, so it is only for able-bodied folks. It takes about 1.5 - 2 hours and is an experience you will not soon forget. You will learn all about Pendleton's wild west roots and it's darker side. Prepare to be thoroughly entertained while you are learning about our past.

You will be amazed to learn the story of why the Underground was created. At the most popular time in its history there were 35 saloons and 15 brothels underground. The city has done a good job of digging out and creating the underground to save at least some of the history. You are taken through 4 blocks underground and into a brothel on street level. A great tour.

Considering the time it took, not sure I would recommend it to my friends. Parts were interesting, but also some boring areas.

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 Our tour guide did a wonderful job responding to questions, as well as delivering the historical content in a lighthearted, comedic manner.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!
