Glad we took the time to check this tour out. Worth it! I would have never known we had been walking on Old Seattle the entire time. It's impressive to think the city was built on top of itself.

Fun, informative. The guides were great! Funny stories! Make sure you have a map. Although the sign isn't hard to see, you'll be looking at everything else!

A lot of history jammed into a couple of blocks underneath Pioneer Square. Our tour guide, Jim, was the highlight of the tour; he was very knowledgable and his innuendos and bad puns kept us entertained from start to finish.

So fun to literally go under the sidewalks to walk into history. Our guide did an excellent job with lots of humor. It was our 2nd time taking the tour so we could bring our teenage grandson. He enjoyed the tour as well.

Overall, I would not recommend this tour service. Their policies are not clearly posted online, the staff at the ticket office (including manager) were not helpful, and the tour did not feel like it was worth the money. I did the Underworld Tour (must be...More

This is perfect history lesson and the tour leader was extremely knowledgeable and comical. He does a great job of leading 40 people around tight places. This is a must do tour of Seattle ‘

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

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
