This tour is fun for locals and tourists. We learned really interesting history about Seattle's underground city and each tour guide ads a flare of humor.

After hemming and hawing about which of Seattle's underground tours to take, we ultimately decided on the "original" Bill Speidel's. The tour guides were great, very energetic, knowledgeable, and fun. The tour was a little different that what I expected, but still very fun and...More

If you are near the Pier 50 it would be around 6 blocks. But remember the streets of Seattle are a bit irregular or on hills so if you plan to go with luggage is not the best recommendation. If you have the time to walk is a... More
