The tour includes subterranean sidewalks and abandoned turn-of-the-20th-century storefronts created when street levels were raised 8 to 35 feet following The Great Seattle Fire in 1889. The guided tour, humorously narrated, highlights Seattle's history in the aftermath of the fire that destroyed 30 blocks of downtown Seattle.</br>Comfortable walking shoes and weather-appropriate clothing are recommended. Tour participants must be able to walk on uneven ground and climb stairs.</br>Guided tours are available. Food is available. </br>
