The tour was engaging and taught us little known facts about Seattle. It would be a difficult activity for small children but perfect for ages 7 and up. The stairs are a little steep but not too bad. If it is raining or chilly outside, dress for the weather. It was drippy and cold underground (we expected this though.)

We had a great time with our guide Will who escorted us to several restaurants, shops in the market, and chocolate shops to taste a variety of really good food. It was really fun.

Awesome experience. My boyfriend and I weren’t able to find the meeting point at first. Rod was kind of to reschedule us and volunteered to do the food tour for us.

Rod, our tour guide was amazing. He was well informed and immensely funny. Highly recommend this experience if you love history of any kind.

Informative and energetic tour. Learned a whole bunch about early Seattle!
