Our first time in Seattle and it was between this and the ghost tour. We opted for the underground tour and it did not disappoint. Our guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. He’s must’ve done this tour a million times but he was full of excitement while giving us our tour.

We really enjoyed our tour. It was a nice size group with 12 people our tour guide spoke up clearly and loud enough for everyone to hear. The samples he gathered for us we're out of this world. I would recommend taking this tour to anyone heading out to Seattle

Noah slayed. From the formidable Dr. Hazard to the sinister Butterworths, Noah playfully wove the tapestry of Seattle’s macabre history with a devilish charm.

Very cool to learn about history of Seattle neighborhoods! Be ready to walk, but guide is great:)

Carter was a great tour guide. Super nice and knowledgeable.
