Back in June of 1889, much of the original city of Seattle burned down in the Great Seattle Fire (thankfully, everyone made it out okay). The industrious Seattleites built a new city on top of the ruins and it continues to thrive to this day. The Seattle Underground Tour is a unique guided experience in some of the remaining structures and streets from Old Seattle, with a good dash of humor and adventure. It's great for families who like history with a little spice and wit.

If you're a history buff or like to listen to stories, this is the tour for you. They talk about the alternative stories of Seattle that aren't mentioned in history books. The guides are really into it, too, which keeps it engaging. Glad I took time to try this tour out.

Seattle is a fantastic city to walk. There are numerous walking tours specializing in food, chocolate, coffee - you name it. The Underground Tour in Pioneer's Square is great fun: http://www.undergroundtour.com/ and offers something a little different and definitely off the beaten path.

Very informative about the history of Seattle, urban planning and how it goes right and wrong especially as plumbing was introduced.
The thing that I really had not realized when I took this tour was how geographically isolated Seattle was when it was founded. We take the roads, airplanes, and even rail access for granted and forget that it was not long ago that a place like the pacific northwest was a hard place to get to.

This tour is a great way to take in and experience some of the unusual history of Seattle. They lead you into the underground sections of the city and explain how Seattle was built and then rebuilt. Lots of fun and fascinating stories.
