3 unique tours you will find in Seattle

14 Jan

Most people that live outside of Washington State have some pre-conceived notions about Seattle. They think the only things to see and do there are go to fish markets, coffee shops, the Space Needle and take a ride on ferries. The last thing on their mind is coming to Seattle to go ghost hunting, see and hear about history, ride an old fashioned trolley car and explore micro breweries. Troughs are just some of the things you will experience on some of the unique tours you can go on when you visit Seattle.

The historic underground

The underground tour starts when you enter a restored 19th century saloon. Once inside you you will get a brief history of movers and shakers of Seattle in the 1800s. From there you will travel 8 feet under the streets of the historic Pioneer Square. For the next 70 minutes you will see the ruins of the old city before the fire of 1889. Tour guides will also regal you with stories of the coming and goes of everyday life in a 19th century logging community. When you emerge from the underground you will be in Rouges gallery souvenir shop where you will be able to purchase momentos of your adventures.

Spooked in Seattle

Since 2004 actual paranormal hunters will take you on a 90 minute tour where you visit some of the most haunted places in the greater Seattle area. They will also regal you with tales of actual hauntings. If that is not enough to raise the hair on the back of your neck you will also see & hear some of the actual evidence they have collected on their investigation. Even if you are a strong sceptic of the supernatural you just might become a believer after this tour.

Tour the city on a trolley

For those that would like a more relaxed tour Seattle offers a variety of tours on an old fashioned trolley car. You and up to 34 friends, or strangers that will soon be friends, can tour downtown Seattle, tour the wineries in the neighboring city of Woodinville, tour the Christmas light display during the holidays or a number of other tours. If the offered tours do not appeal to you the trolley is available for private charters.
