It looks like it might be a rainy couple of days in Seattle. You'll stay dry in the Seattle Underground though! 
We run tours 7 days a week with a tour starting every hour on the hour from 9:00am-7:00pm.

On this day in 1852, construction begins on pioneer Henry Yesler's sawmill. Located in what is now Pioneer Square, Seattle, it's the first steam-powered sawmill on Puget Sound. For more information, visit HistoryLink:

Sure, you've seen sunsets, Mount Rainier and Seattle's skyline. But probably not in the same way Jeff Abel has. A Seattle landscape photographer, Abel captures stunning views of stars, Earth and wa...

Bill Speidel’s Underground Tour is a historic walking tour of Seattle’s oldest neighborhood of Pioneer Square and the subterranean passageways of the Seattle Underground.

The Underground Tour will take you into the abandoned Seattle Underground, where you will stroll past subterranean storefronts and beneath the present day sidewalks! On the tour you will hear historical and humorous stories of early Seattle’s pioneers and the mistakes and achievements that helped shape Seattle into the city it is today. These are the stories our pioneers didn’t want you to hear. 

Underground Tours run daily from 9:00 am- 7:00 pm

Underworld Tours run daily 8:00 pm and 9:00 pm

Cheesy humour at break-neck pace carries an infornation packed tour through three sections (roughly 10%) of the original sidewalks of the are, set one story below the current street level. Quirky layers of Seattle's history are presented peppered with corny jokes but the result stands and keeps dark dusty basements interesting, as ultimately it's not so much the basement spaces that are interesting so much as the stories of how this bizarre arrangement even came about. It seems the accessible space has shrunk over the years, but the tour is interesting nevertheless. During the day it's family friendly, but they also have ghost tours and a shorter tour that focuses on drugs and prostitution in the area, and the latter apparently includes a free drink at the end.

Definitely my most fun experience when visiting Seattle, sure you're traipsing around cellars and basements, but the tour guides spin such a wonderful tale whilst leading you around you forget what things are like now and start seeing what things were like then.

Ben, We are so glad you enjoyed the tour! Our guides are fabulous storytellers. Can you believe how quirky Seattle used to be? Thank goodness we continue to be a quirky and trendsetting city. We hope you have an amazing time above ground too!

Tour was ok but the tour guide was lame! Tried to be funny but no one was laughing! Flyer says that if you don't have humor don't go, I think the tour guide left his behind.

We decided to do the Paranormal tour. Never having done anything like this, I was prepared for a "Ghost Hunters" style experience. I was let down. There are so many people on the tour that you couldn't hear a creepy voice if you wanted too. I guess I also expected a spookier experience.
Response from the owner - in the last week
Sundee, Thank you for your review. We keep our groups small but it is an exciting experience so it can be a bit loud. We do hope you enjoyed the stories of the death and murder that has happened in Pioneer Square since the first settlers set-up camp. If you are looking for a quieter, and creepier experience perhaps you will discover something while on a private tour. Give us at call at 206-682-4646 to set-up a private tour.

An amazing journey into the history of Seattle! My tour guide Clay was funny, engaging and very informative! I am excited to take the UnderWorld Tour next! As other's have stated, if you do not appreciate history and think you are going into a renovated space, you will be disappointed. They have left the spaces in their originally-found condition, with the exception of safety.

Great place to go for a date. The lobby has a bar and the feeling and atmosphere is intimate. Then the tour is awesome. It's really cool to see if you live in the Seattle area but also as a tourist as well. Interesting history i never knew. I will be going again!
