The tour was engaging and taught us little known facts about Seattle. It would be a difficult activity for small children but perfect for ages 7 and up. The stairs are a little steep but not too bad. If it is raining or chilly outside, dress for the weather. It was drippy and cold underground (we expected this though.)

Loved the guide, knew a lot about the history. Knew the animal life well. Saw alligators, pigs and raccoons. We truly enjoyed the tour. Others told us on their tours they never even saw alligators. They chose a different company. We saw quite a few.

Great guide with lots of history, stories, and architecture. Really liked her (Yvonne) and the other must have bc the other people on the tour had booked her for this tour after having her the day before on a different tour.

The package offered was reasonably price. The bus was simple to find and the ride was comfortable the operator of the boat was well versed and we actually seen a lot of wildlife and an alligator as well.

It was scary at first but I had fun the whole time I was there with my husband
