Bill Speidel’s Underground Tour information
Seattle’s famous ‘underground’ tour, which takes you through the tunnels and sidewalks hidden beneath the streets of Pioneer Square, might get a little corny at times, but it delivers the goods on historic Seattle as a rough and rowdy industrial town.
The tour starts at Doc Maynard’s Public House,named after one of the city’s founding fathers and quite a character. It is massively popular, especially in prime tourist season. No reservations are accepted, so try to arrive half an hour early if you want to be sure you get in.
