Rainier and Puget Sound in the distance, and to enjoy the sights below. Each gondola seats up to eight people, but each group receives a private gondola. One luxury gondola sports leather seats, a stereo system, and a glass floor for all-around views.

  • Great, informative tour of Seattle's underground. Guide was filled with humor and facts. Easy walk, pretty good for all weather. Not cold underground as expected. Book in advance - it's super popular. Really fun thing to do!
  • Fairly short line on a Saturday afternoon. Line moved pretty quickly after you get your tickets. Enclosed cabins that are climate controlled. 3 revolutions non stop and 1 for loading and unloading. Nice views of downtown and the waterfront. Thought it might be more anxiety producing, but with enclosed cabins and slow speed, it was pretty tame.
