My husband, daughter and I took the tour which is approximately 1 hour long. Our guide, Dave, was very informative and very engaging. We were part of a relatively small group (no more than 25) so it was easy to see and hear Dave at all times. If you are in Seattle you should strongly consider taking this tour. The history of the underground is extremely fascinating. We highly recommend!

We were a party of 4 from California looking for things to do in Seattle.... Found the Beneath the Street tour online and thought it sounded interesting it was but boy was it SO MUCH MORE! Dave our tour guy was so knowledgeable with just the right amount of humor sprinkled in. He
kept us moving through the city stopping here and there to duck us down hidden areas where he shared old photos and stories of days gone by.... He had an excellent knack of painting pictures in our heads of how Seattle was built out of the ashes! This was a highlight of our trip!!
