  • Quite unique and interesting.

  • Enjoyed the Underground History tour. Very informative and our guide was entertaining and engaging!

  • Guide was fun and knowledgable.

  • Truly an amazing tour - it begins underground at the same place as the ghost tours do. Chuck is an awesome guide - hilarious, witty and informative. You get to check out 3 places that you can see where the original sidewalk existed - truly fascinating. You are shown photos of what old Seattle looked like - and more often than not you are standing right in the middle of the photo!
