Okay, laugh. I always thought the Underground/original Seattle was restored; it's not. It IS rubble (see photos). Still, it's pretty weird, interesting, unique and worth... read more

I've been on this tour at least ten times since the early 1970s, and it's always fun. Went with an Aussie friend on February 18. Andy, our guide, was enthusiastic, funny, and friendly, if a bit hampered by the large size of our group; at about 50, it was difficult for her to do the typical side jokes and chatting... More

Okay, laugh. I always thought the Underground/original Seattle was restored; it's not. It IS rubble (see photos). Still, it's pretty weird, interesting, unique and worth visiting. It's touristy but worth a trip and our guide was entertaining and knowledgeable and the really great apart about Seattle is to get out of Seattle a bit. Take the ferry, visit the islands,... More

Don't Bother! Everything I read about this tour made it seem like a must do. We were all disappointed. The history was interesting but the tour was like visiting a few dank rooms in someone's basement. No bang for your buck! The tour had a lot of repetitive corny jokes That wore thin as you realized there was really nothing... More

The verbal history provided by our guide far overshadowed what we saw in the tunnels. I'm a utility professional, so the pipes were interesting to me, but after a while, it's just more brick. The stories about how Seattle came to be were interesting and told so well though. Overall, I had a good time. The waiting lounge though could... More

Didn't pre-book this tour and instead just walked up and were lucky to get a spot within the hour. Seems to be a busy tour but they get a lot of people through at a time. The guides were very funny and seemed to know what they are talking about and it was a very interesting tour. Went for approximately... More

We had Dean as our guide. We learned many interesting facts about Seattle's early days. It was informative and funny. We went into the belly of the beast, under the streets, up and down and all around!
