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.)

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

The history was amazing and the tour guide was amazing with the amount of knowledge and a wonderful sense of humor.

The tour was great! They take you to great local food spots. Lots of delicious food!

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