Q&A with Chuck Russell-Coons, Guide

What sets your business apart from your competition?
The small size of our groups and our focus on history. We limit our groups to about 22 persons which allows our guides to tailor information to guest's areas of interest. Other companies may have groups twice as large.

What was the inspiration for starting this business?
We were founded by four tour guides who wanted to share their passion of local history with smaller groups, and in a greater variety of underground spaces. All of our guides have previously worked as tour guides in the Pioneer Square neighborhood.

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Beneath the Streets is a new tour that visits the areaways under the sidewalks in Pioneer Square. These spaces are commonly referred to as underground, although as you'll discover on the tour, they are actually Seattle's original ground level. Other tour companies visit similar spaces.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
"This is a great alternative to the traditional underground tour. The group was small so we could hear the guide, see the spaces and hear the questions and answers. I learned Seattle history I did not know about and enjoyed seeing different underground spaces. Everyone on our tour - locals and visitors loved the tour. I highly recommend it." -July 5, 2013 Trip Advisor review.

What’s your favorite part about your job?
Seeing the aha moment on guests' faces as they realize how the underground spaces they are in were created more than 120 years ago. Taking folks below ground and back in time to see, feel, and touch the Seattle of the the 1890's.
