The Seattle Underground Tour takes tourists into the forgotten world of Seattle as it was in 1900 – “Seattle Underground (3726665129)” by Rennett Stowe

Deep withing the city of Seattle Washington lies an unexpected story. It all began in 1954 when Bill Speidel started touring folks through the tunnels and underground walkways left when Seattle lifted itself out of the mud… It is the story of how Pioneer Square became a historic landmark, and how the history of Seattle was salvaged from the wrecking ball.

If you are interested in bringing a group tour (or private event) please connect with their sales representative at 206-682-4646 extension 118.

It’s one of more than “10 Things You Must See and Do in Seattle.”

What You See On The Seattle Underground Tour

The Bill Speidel’s World Famous Underground Tour is a guided walking tour beneath the streets and sidewalks of current day Seattle. You’ll wander along what was once the main street level along the “ground-floor” storefronts while learning about all kinds of interesting trivia about old Seattle. You start out inside Doc Maynard’s Public House which is a restored 1890’s saloon. It’s been converted into the Underground Café and reportedly offers one of the best Bloody Mary’s in town by one Yelper.
