Overview

Go underground on a 1-hour walking history tour through Seattle's original neighborhood. Our experienced guides lead small groups through, and beneath, Pioneer Square to the street level that existed in the 1890s. Explore underground pathways that were built more than 120 years ago, learning details on early Seattle history, why these spaces were built, and how they have been used (and misused) over the years. Marvel at how this once Indian encampment has since transformed into one of the 20 largest cities in the United States. 

Highlights

  • Step back in time on a history tour

My friend and I are retired teachers and wanted to participate in at least one tour that gave us a little bit of insight into the history of Seattle. This tour started less than 2 blocks from our hotel and right underneath the coffee shop that we were going to every morning for breakfast. The tour itself only lasted an hour but it was packed with information. There are a few steps to go up and down but nothing too difficult. I have bad knees and it was quite doable. Between this and visiting the Gold Rush Museum, I walked away with a pretty good understanding of the history of early days of Seattle.

Great overview of the history of the area. Richard was a knowledgeable and friendly guide who made the experience extremely enjoyable and fun. Our tour only had 8 people so there was lots of opportunity to ask questions.

Mike was great and really knowledgeable. You can tell he really enjoys history and making the tour a lively, positive experience. We learned a bunch about Seattle that we never knew. I'd recommend for a fun date night or family activity.

This tour was terrific! We loved exploring this underground world - and learning about the history of this part of Seattle that I knew really so little about. Our tour guide Eowyn was wonderful. Highly recommend!!

An original and very lively way to discover the history of the city (and escape the rain a little !). We followed the tour with Jim who has a real gift for storytelling, full of historical facts and anecdotes ... Thank's

Great tour very informative and Jim was an awesome and entertaining guide! Don’t forget your covid vaccination card because it was required for the tour even though the booking agent said that it was not required. Fortunately we had electronic copies on our phones.
