Seattle’s Underground Tour

Seattle’s Underground Tour
So if you’re in Seattle and looking for an attraction, The Seattle’s Underground Tour is a must. Tickets are $17 (adults) and takes about 75 minutes. There’s a little cafe inside for those waiting for the next tour. We got a small coffee and apple strudel as we waited. This was my second time going, and it seemed shorter than the first time, likely because I already knew what the tour was all about.

The tour is an interesting way of seeing the history of Seattle. It’s quite a different experience than just going to a museum with antiques behind glass casings. You get to walk through the old town of Seattle. Most people may not realize that the ground you currently walking on in that area is actually the second level! So back then, originally, the Underground, was level ground…yup…hard to imagine…

Many of the things were stolen you wont find any valuable antiques there.

Both times, I had a humourous tour guide which made the tour even more entertaining.  Because Sheepie loves taking pictures and gets left behind by the group, we were once locked inside! Luckily, we could unlock from the inside and rushed off after the group which was already crossing the street half a block away. Phew!
