What you'll do

Brave San Francisco’s dark and ghostly past on a real ghost hunt through old Chinatown and Gold Rush alleys. You’ll use modern ghost hunting gear, including a Spirit Box, dowsing rods, and your own EMF detector during the tour, to attempt contact with spirits.

After meeting below the Transamerica Pyramid (after dark, of course), a local guide escorts you down haunted alleys, through mysterious neighborhoods, and around historic street corners.

Stand atop old Gold Rush cemeteries, learn of paranormal activity following mysterious deaths, visit the site of an infamous massacre, hear about Gold Rush–era hauntings, and how Chinatown’s gang feuds shocked the city.

This tour was great! I was expecting it to be awesome based on the other reviews, and it lived up to the hype. Jade the guide was super knowledgeable, friendly, and entertaining. I’ve lived in San Francisco for years and learned a ton that I didn’t know. Do the tour for the history, and the ghosts are the icing on the cake

Whether or not you are inclined to believe in ghosts, this is a fun and interesting experience in SF. Wes is very organized, knowledgeable and well versed in SF history, and in the lore of SF ghosts. Weaves all of this into a great walking tour thru a few SF neighborhoods. Well run event, intriguing stories about SF and tales of the paranormal. Definitely worth doing.

It was a fun, many interesting ghost stories. Be sure to dress warm it gets very cold with the rain and wind. Warm shoes and ponchos for the rain are essential.

This tour was so fun! I saw parts of SF I’d never been to before and want to return to. The tools were a novel touch that intrigued & our guide, Jade, gave us scary, historical stories in a humorous way. Highly recommend.

Even though our tour got cut short because my partner got sick part of the way through (whether ghosts or food poisoning, to be determined) we still had fun! Here is hoping I can come back and finish the tour sometime in the future :)
