The underground tour covers the area around Pioneer Square, and visits sites both above and below ground. On June 6, 1889, a fire burned down most of Downtown Seattle, and city engineers rebuilt the city several feet above the high tide line to prevent flooding, giving rise to a complex underground tunnel system which housed the old Downtown. Tours are insightful and humorous. They also run an "Underworld Tour" in the evenings for $25 for people age 21 and up that includes a drink, where the stories deal more with the brothels and opium that was prevalent in the "underworld."
After hearing great things about this tour I was really looking forward to doing it, thinking that it would be an interesting tour in actual underground tunnels. The only good thing about the tour was the guide, he was funny and tried to make it interesting. However, the actual tour went through a few separate spaces that were more like poorly maintained basement areas with bits of trash that businesses had thrown down there. With a hefty $20 USD ticket price, I certainly wouldn't recommend it.
