Overview

Get to know Seattle's first established neighborhood, Pioneer Square, by walking its underground pathways as they existed in the 1890s in the company of a guide. Trace the city’s history, from an Indian dwelling to its Gold Rush days and up through its current state as a thriving modern neighborhood on this walking tour.

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 Salish Indian settlement to its modern iteration. It’s a perspective you can’t get by wandering on your own.

The tour concludes at Occidental Park.

Great tour!

My three kids (20, 16, & 13) enjoyed the tour as did I. Jim was engaging and funny. We learned quite a bit. Highly recommend this short, informative tour.

Neat tour

Tour was fun and interesting. I was expecting the underground to be connected, instead you go to 3 separate locations and then go down so most of the walking is above ground disappointingly. For what it is, it could be cheaper, but still fun.

Seattle Visit 2018

Jim Gall was GREAT guide tour, learned a lot about Seattle’s past and how it became the great city it is today. Lots of walking, going up and downs stairs but overall a great tour!

Fun history lesson

Looking back, I realize I learned a lot about Seattle's history, but during the tour it was just fun and informative. Tour guide was very upbeat and fun. Tour was indoors and outdoors.
