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.

Our guide, Mike, was clearly passionate about the city's history, answered everyone's questions thoroughly, and provided a really in-depth look at one of Seattle's oldest neighborhoods. There were 3 underground locations which were connected by a short...More

Not Much to See

This tour includes stops at 3 locations where they show you a few photographs and give the history of Seattle. We enjoyed the history but the visual aids need improvement.

Not sure if a dog is welcome as the tour involves a group of people and the guide. I think one would have to ask the guide and get consent from the group.

Sorry we didn’t look at the prices for children so unable to answer you. The tour would be good for kids as it is interesting and going underground.
