The guide wasted several minutes on the front end telling us about himself and having people tell where they were from, then he ended up running WAY over (1-1/2 hour instead of 1 hour). He seemed knowledgeable, however, and did tell many interesting stories/facts.
Fun, funny inclusive, interesting, educational. Janelle was great.
Dave was excellent. Generally avoid tours and touristy things but this one was great. Informative, funny, personal
Our guide Betsy was really knowledgeable about the history, had a very engaging and friendly manner and made the whole experience come alive. Highly recommended.
This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Seattle! It was so interesting to learn the history and go beneath the city. Our guide Rod did an excellent job of entertaining us while providing detail explanations of how the underground city came to be. So happy we had this experience!
Our experience exceeded our expectations! The tour was funny, incredibly interesting, and provided a colorfully rich portrait of the city's history. I will be recommending this tour for residents and tourists alike!
The tour guide made that tour. Confident, funny, EXTREMELY knowledgeable and smooth in all her sharing... I have done a lot of random tours in a lot of random cities, and did this one spontaneously at the recommendation of the StayPineapple shuttle driver and he was absolutely right - it was amazing! Thank you, I learned SO MUCH and wished I had done this at the start of my trip instead of my last day, so I could have appreciated the knowledge as I stomped around town. I highly recommend this tour - it was fabulous. Thank you!
Our guide, Jim, did a great job of bringing the city's history to life so a mixed crowd of locals, recent arrivals and out of town visitors all enjoyed themselves and even learned some fun things. We particularly liked the description of how Seattle has changed over the years from a logging town to the gold rush to the present day.
Richard was an amazing tour guide. Informative, fun and mysterious. I would highly recommend this tour!
