    If you are a history buff or <3 Seattle, this is the tour for you! If you want something fun and exciting look for a ghost tour. Make sure you don't have plans afterwards, can go longer than allotted.

    Fascinating and the tour guides are great! Wear layers & comfy shoes - the temperature underground is different than outside and you'll be doing a lot of walking on uneven ground. Bring your camera!

    The tour was really amazing. It was made note interesting by our tour guide, who also added a flavor of comedy garnished with high quality sarcasm. Worth the 18 dollars.

    Very interesting and the guide is so passionate ;) this made me know a lot more about the history of Seattle! The night tour is, yes, like a party.

    Super touristy activity - explore the old city located underneath the current streets of Pioneer Square. There is a more gritty tour for 21+ over in the evenings.

    Great tour, must see in Seattle! Make sure to stop at the bar for a drink first! Better chug fast though because you aren't allowed to take drinks on the tour.

    The tour is an interesting look into the weird and notorious history of Seattle. Tour guide Ally was funny, knowledgeable, smart, and energetic.

    A must in Seattle. One of the best tours in America. I've done it three times they have a great funny spin on the history of Pioneer Square.

    If you go on the adult only tour, try and get the woman guide. If you are not that lucky, a drink (or two) before hand would greatly improve this disjointed and not particularly informative tour.

    Gail is an enthusiastic, hilarious, and bawdy tour guide. See if she's leading the tour you're going on--although it might run slightly longer than anticipated (ours was ~1.5 hrs).

    If you order a drink before the tour, you get priority for seating. Very interesting fun facts about the city of Seattle.

    If you're into history this is for sure worth the money and get that student ID out to get discount no matter the school

    An interesting tour. This tour is really about the development of Seattle from the pioneer days. Lots of interesting facts.

    Takes visitors around Pioneer Square above ground and also to a hidden Seattle that now lies underground. About 25 square blocks of Pioneer Square have hollow spaces under the sidewalks.

    u can save the $2.50/ticket web surcharge by buying tickets in-person, however they don't sell tickets more than 1 day in advance. wish they mentioned that last part b4 driving there!

    Been here 100+ times
    If your passing by on Fridays, drop into the cafe for their $4 hot dog special. The hot dog is worth the money and you get a bag of Tim's chips plus drink.

    Mary definitely makes the entire tour! I could see this being less than entertaining with any our tour guide.

    A combination of nerdy jokes and amazing history all while touring Seattle's basement city. Gael is a particularly amazing guide.

    Really great tour, but wish I had done the Adult one that goes at 8 or 9pm so I could learn more about the "sewing" circles.

    Leila was an engaging and funny guide, and even rapped a verse to deliver her story for one part! Time flew by

    The tour is definitely worth the money, but the SubSeattle and late night underground tours are better. Just saying.

    Shane is hilarious! I advise not to wear heels. You'll leave never looking at downtown the same way again. Look for the patches on the sidewalks. They're skylights!

    I was disappointed with this tour, it's was not entertained at all and I fall asleep walking. Don't expect something super exciting. But if you like history, you can give this a try.
