Your tour begins at 102 Cherry Street, just off 1st Avenue in Pioneer Square. Here, you'll greet your guide before delving into the depths of underground Seattle and and its history during a subterranean walk through the city’s original neighborhood, Pioneer Square.

Your guide regales you with stories of Seattle’s past, from its role in the Klondike Gold Rush to the notorious Skid Row, once Pioneer Square’s main hub. Wander among darkened passageways, occasionally popping up to street level, as you traverse approximately three blocks and cover more than a century of history.
