Highlights
  • Learn the history of Pioneer Square from a unique, below-ground perspective
  • Walk the neighborhood's subterranean tunnels with a knowledgeable guide
  • Trace Seattle’s history from an Indigenous encampment to the 1890s to today
  • Seattle history tour covers the basics while leaving time for other sightseeing
What to expect
  • Meet your guide and group at 102 Cherry Street, near Pioneer Square, at least 10 minutes prior to your scheduled departure. Be sure to wear good walking shoes as this underground walking tour covers uneven terrain and involves ascending and descending about six flights of stairs. After a brief introduction from your guide, set off to explore one of Seattle's oldest neighborhoods and its subterranean tunnels on this guided tour. Listen to stories of Seattle's past, from the Klondike Gold Rush to Skid Row, as you wander dark passageways and then back up to street level. Over the course of three blocks, you'll cover a century of history, from the neighborhood's origins as a Coast Salish settlement to its modern iteration. It’s a perspective you can’t get by wandering on your own. The tour concludes at Occidental Park.

Touring on rainy day is easy. DO it!
Oct. 2021 • Friends
Terry Lynn is a clever and very knowledgeable guide. The stops and content were well-planned with safe street crossings, and well-adapted for above-ground rain between underground stops. Her content was great, she spoke so all could hear, and is very welcoming of all to her city.

Very Informative
Oct. 2021
I booked this with my 14 year old and he enjoyed it. We learned a lot about the history of Seattle in the 75 minute tour (booked for 60 minutes but runs over) 1/2 the tour is under the streets 1/2 is above ground walking between the two tunnels.

Great way to really understand the city!
Sep. 2021
Dave is obsessed with Seattle history and his enthusiasm is contagious. I had only a few days to get to know the city and I didn't want to waste my time with touristic money traps. This tour helped me understand how the city came to be and what I was actually seeing when I walked around Pioneer Square. I was a little nervous that the walking and the stairs might be a challenge, but it was definitely do-able. Context is everything, and I would have had a much less interesting first visit to Seattle without this tour.

Super interesting historical tour.
This was such a cool experience. Our guide Jim was so knowledgeable and passionate. He really kept everyone’s attention..even our 13 year old son might have learned something. 😂 Highly recommend to anyone that wants to know more about the history of Seattle and what lies beneath!

A Must Do Activity for a Reasonable Price
Oct. 2021
Writing this a week later, so I forgot my tour guide's name (he's in a band is all I remember), but he was awesome! Very reasonable walk, and I learned some great historical points from an engaging tour guide.
