This tour should not be missed if you are visiting Seattle! Fun and informative, I wish I had the time to do the underworld and paranormal tour as well. Another reason to come back and visit Seattle!

I took the Bill Speidel's Underground Tour with my family (ages ranged from 21 to 70). The guide was funny and the tour is a unique perspective on history. Be prepared to walk and climb up and down stairs. You are told about this before you begin the tour, but my 70 year old aunt was seriously huffing and puffing... More

My boyfriend and I had such a blast on our tour with CJ on May 23rd at 2pm. He is funny, witty and knows how to appeal to all audiences. There were young ones, families, couples and seniors and he was accommodating and patient to everyone. Especially when we transitioned from locations. Excellent tour!

My partner refused (politely) to participate, calling it touristy. Oh well, his loss. I thought it was great fun and enjoyed Eric's (see, I remembered your name!) spiel. Amy got us started and I'm sure her tour was just as delightful. Extra added attraction: You learn neat stuff about Seattle in the early years.

OK I marked this as average because I expected more sights. There really wasn't anything interesting to see once you got under the streets. The tour is heavy with history and I think the best kind of history, the kind that is passed down generation after generation word of mouth. Sure it may be exaggerated here and there, but that's...

We took our teen and pre-teen boys on this tour, and everyone had a great time. The tour guides were both informative and entertaining. We would definitely do this again!

By far this is interesting in the history, but it's not a 'fun' attraction. The guides are terrific with humor and information, bringing you to feel a part of the old city. I was amazed though at the air quality was lacking, as you are under the city it might be expected to be a little musty, but if you... More

If you love the history and amazing underground that came with it this your is for you. We loved this tour immensely! The history of Seattle during a catastrophic phase and the rebuilding of the city was very interesting to learn and see this experience firsthand. I would highly recommend to anyone interested in a little excitement for their vacation... More

An excellent morning learning about the history of seattle done in a very entertaining and light hearted fashion. It may not appeal to those who like their history a little staid but both Justin and Dean our guides were knowledgeable and brought the whole history to life. Deans warm up act had us crying with laughter. Suitable for families with... More
