We have visited Seattle many times and had not taken this tour. We were in Seattle with high school and middle school aged niece and nephews for their spring break. One of our nephews suggested this. It was a day with off and on again showers so it was advantageous to be out of the weather. We walked over from... More

We took the 21+ Underworld Tour, which focused more on the sinful past of Seattle. Our tour guide Kion did an excellent job of keeping us laughing whilst telling us about the history of Seattle in great detail. Heads up if you have a non-US ID, they accepted my UK driver's licence but there is a sign that says they... More

My girlfriend and I took the underground tour today. We were initially disappointed when assigned a guide other than the initial opener. But we were more than pleasantly surprised with our new tour guide, Lisa. Other than her amazing knowledge base, sense of humor, and wonderful positive attitude, Lisa is also just awesome!!! If you get the chance to be... More

A very interesting tour in the old part of Seattle. Well worth doing. And come for lunch before or after at one of the many eateries!

This was a lucky last day break. We decided we had time before our flight and this tour was reasonably priced. Great experience to learn a little of Seattles colorful history. Well informed tour guide and great value.

Bill Speidel's Underground is a neat way to experience the history of Seattle. Our tour guide, Shane, made the tour fun by incorporating funny anecdotes into the history. This is a fun and very economical activity to enjoy on your visit to Seattle.

Very informative tour, but I just couldn't get past the tour guide's (Keynan) crybaby attitude. There was a semi-rowdy crowd and he couldn't handle not having everyone's 100% undivided attention. He even yelled at a woman for trying to go to the bathroom. I suggest taking a tour when Keynan has the day off!

I remember taking this tour when I was very young on a trip to Seattle and thinking how cool it was. Well good news is that it's still cool today. It's so great to learn some of Seattle's history and seeing it for yourself. I don't know of anywhere else that you can go into a city below a city.... More
