I did the night time underground tour, which is not for the faint of heart. Our guide was good and she was very detailed (wink). It was fun, informative, and interesting.

We were disappointed because the tour guide “Layla” used the tour to criticize men, being critical of America and used political sarcastic comments plus she was super annoying and I think she uses the tour as an improv comedy stand. Way too many jokes. We...More

Small group on a weekday in late November. Dean, our guide, was outstanding. Fun humor, lots of energy, and very knowledgeable! Highly recommended.

We only had one day in Seattle, so wanted to learn something about the city. Staying in the Pioneer District, we were able to walk just a few blocks to the tour. We relaxed in the pub after getting our tickets and enjoyed some very...More

We did this tour as a random last minute sight seeing adventure and it was wonderful. Our tour guide Alley was hilarious and incredibly knowledgeable. For those that are claustrophobic the underground can be tight but very manageable. This tour is a definite must when...More

Enjoyable tour for the whole family of the parts of original buildings left underground after a catastrophic fire. I had read about it in a spy novel where the main characters were being pursued in Seattle. They used the whole 30 streets or so, not...More

This is a tour for almost any age, and the guide (Clay) was exceptional (knowledgeable, humorous, entertaining). A 75-minutes walking tour (the first 10 minutes are seated and includes the orientation and introduction) before walking across Pioneer Square where you go down several entrances into...More

Sorry, my response was somewhat gobblygook. The terminal is about 2.5 miles away from The tour location, Pioneer Sq. Walkable, but very long.
