Drag Me Along Tours
Rick Shelton of Drag Me Along Tours is a tour guide and San Francisco resident, but the role you're most likely to remember him by is that of Countess Lola Montez. During his tours, he embodies the 19th century Irish dancer and actress who gained fame as a courtesan, and later, as a mistress of King Ludwig I of Bavaria. During tours, Rick—er, Ms. Montez—explores the streets of San Francisco as they were during her rowdy visits in the mid 1800s. In a fun, energetic manner, she points out places where she's entertained and shares parts of her life that many of her contemporaries never knew about unless they followed her blog. All tours begin in Portsmouth Square near the Goddess of Democracy Statue, and each one lasts about 2.5 hours and covers approximately two miles of easy walking.
