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
  • Small-group tour

I took some time away from a conference to take this fascinating subterranean tour of Seattle's history, and it was thoroughly enjoyable! I got to learn more about the original Pioneer Square, some of the original roads and walkways, and other interesting points in Seattle history, such as the Klondike Gold Rush and Skid Row. There's a lot to learn, and our guide was very captivating and informative. If you have trouble managing stairs, then I would recommend not taking this tour.

We weren't expecting an underground tour to be the highlight of our trip to Seattle, and this absolutely was incredible. The walk isn't long at all, the tout guides are fun and knowledgable, and we meet so many different people from all over the world. I, for one, did not know there was even a city underneath Washington! It gave such a great historical and enjoyable education to really culminate our summer. 100% would recommend!

As with all historic tours, the guide makes all the difference and ours was great. I had heard there was an underground but the history of Seattle and why the underground is fascinating. Need to be able to go up and down stairs, but otherwise an easy stroll.

Great underground experience! Never knew Seattle had underground history just like we did not know Seattle had some hills (best kept secret). Mike was a great and energetic tour guide and had a great amount of history to share about Seattle. Highly recommend this tour and Mike as a guide!
