  • Seattle: Underground Walking Tour

    1. Seattle: Underground Walking Tour

    Take this 1-hour journey back in time and allow your guide to take you below the streets of Seattle. Explore over four city blocks of historic Pioneer Square and wander through three underground passageways originally constructed in the 1890's. Learn the historical details leading to the birth of Seattle as it is knows today, and the decision to raise the city streets out of the swampy grounds. See where retaining walls were added alongside the streets and filled to make new roads several feet above where they originally stood.

    Great tour very informative guide and very well organized and professional. Definitely recommend and price is great!

  • From Seattle: Mount Rainier Full-Day Tour

    2. From Seattle: Mount Rainier Full-Day Tour

    Visit Mount Rainier with a professional tour guide and discover all that this national park has to offer on this full-day tour. After getting picked up from your hotel, hop in a comfortable 22-passenger minibus with large windows, high back seats, and air-conditioning and head straight to the park.

    Experience old-growth forests, wildflower-filled meadows, and thundering waterfalls on this tour of glacier-clad Mt. Rainier. Hike and walk a little, a lot, or not at all: there are options for all abilities. Enjoy lunch at a Mount Rainier café or buy a picnic lunch along the way. Visit the interpretive center at Paradise to learn even more about the mountain’s glaciers, plants, and animals.

    Return to Seattle through pastoral farmlands and memorable Pacific Northwest scenery. Make a final stop at Wapiti Woolies and try the famous huckleberry ice cream.

    I went on a couple hikes to see waterfalls and stopped at a lake. It was amazing to see everything. The one hour we had to ourselves was a little short to have lunch, gift shop and hike on our own, but it was doable based on choosing one of the shorter trails. There is quite a bit of steepness to each hike I participated in, so going downward was easier than upward back to the bus. So, you have to have some stamina and willingness to push through if you're not athletic like me. But, I had an awesome time and I loved all the views I saw. It was great meeting the people in my tour. I would definitely do it again.

    Unlike a few other reviews on here I really enjoyed MoPop. Fantasy, horror, and Disney sections were great. Interesting to see items from our favorite shows over the years. The colored glass was amazing below the space needle. Also nice to go up the space needle twice. Once during the day and once near sundown. Aquarium and zoo were what one would expect. But nice location on the aquarium near Pikes Place city market. Overall a good time and visit to Seattle with our 12 year old daughter.
