Highlights
Learn the history of Pioneer Square from a unique, below-ground perspective
Walk the neighborhood's subterranean tunnels with a knowledgeable guide
Trace Seattle’s history from an Indigenous encampment to the 1890s to today
Seattle history tour covers the basics while leaving time for other sightseeing
What to expect
Meet your guide and group at 102 Cherry Street, near Pioneer Square, at least 10 minutes prior to your scheduled departure. Be sure to wear good walking shoes as this underground walking tour covers uneven terrain and involves ascending and descending about six flights of stairs. After a brief introduction from your guide, set off to explore one of Seattle's oldest neighborhoods and its subterranean tunnels on this guided tour. Listen to stories of Seattle's past, from the Klondike Gold Rush to Skid Row, as you wander dark passageways and then back up to street level. Over the course of three blocks, you'll cover a century of history, from the neighborhood's origins as a Coast Salish settlement to its modern iteration. It’s a perspective you can’t get by wandering on your own. The tour concludes at Occidental Park.

Great Tour - Loved the small group experience. Like walking with a small group of friends. Guide was great. The history of Seattle was not what I thought it was. Without seeing the "Underground" I would have missed a big part of it's history.

Excellent history of the underground of Seattle.
Even if you are not a history buff this is an extremely interesting tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. The walk was an easy one. It lasted for an hour and it flew by. If you are in the area I would definitely make this a stop.

Fun dive into Seattle's history
Jul 2021
We did a tour with Jennifer and loved it! She's not also very knowledgeable about Seattle's history, she also conveys that knowledge with a great sense of humor which made all the facts and the tour itself very memorable. I highly recommend this tour if you want to get a brief and funny introduction into Seattle's exciting history!

Well done tour
Tour guide was knowledgeable and did a great job presenting. The group size was reasonable and resulted in an intimate experience where we could hear everything the guide had to share. Loved the use of pictures from the era to provide more depth to the experience

Underground tour of Seattle.
Chuck was very knowledgeable about Seattle history. Learned a lot. Group size was small compared to other tour providers we saw doing the same tour. Appreciate the focus on providing a better experience due to small group size.
