Full description
Take this 1-hour journey back in time and allow your guide to take you below the streets of Seattle. Explore over four city blocks of historic Pioneer Square and wander through three underground passageways originally constructed in the 1890's. Learn the historical details leading to the birth of Seattle as it is knows today, and the decision to raise the city streets out of the swampy grounds. See where retaining walls were added alongside the streets and filled to make new roads several feet above where they originally stood.

Very informative and interesting. My teenager and young adult children were thinking my choice of fun was boring. But they walked away wanting more stories and looked at Seattle in entirely different way. They loved it! Our guide is passionate about the city and we thank him for it! Very recommended.

This experience was amazing. It truly shows you the history of Seattle from a point of view that you wouldn’t find unless extensive research was done. The host and tour guide was very knowledgeable about Seattle, and had a great sense of humor. Loved this tour and very happy they survived throughout covid.
