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.

Fun and informative

It was a rainy day, so this ended up being a great attraction (even though much is above ground). Our guide, Jim, was very knowledgeable and his acting background was used to great effect in voice and engaging dialogue. We have been in Seattle several...More

A must see before the underground goes away

We booked the tour last minute and it was a definite winner. The tour guide's knowledge of how the city was established and built was very interesting and made the tour for us. We were able to see various areas of the city that were...More

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.
