We try and do a walking tour in every city we visit, and this one was so different. It was fun and an interesting way to spend an hour or so. Full of funny and interesting stories as well as tips for the city

A little bit of jadded history mixed with lowbrow humor in a musty environment. Not a must for Seattle. Not for those with footing issues - lots of uneven footings & steps.

Marvellous and entertaining tour of Seattles underground!! The reason this area even exists is an amazing story in itself. Well worth the $ 22 entrance fee, although the photos offered are a rip off!!
