Emperor Norton’s Time Machine

With a satchel swung ‘round his shoulder, walking stick in hand, and a plume of red and black feathers struggling against his cap, Emperor Norton I leads enthralled sightseers around the iconic corners of San Francisco during 2-mile treks through time. Gold epaulettes gleam beneath the Bay Area sun as the emperor dispenses lively, informative, and charming commentary while ambling along a route that, like an above-ground swimming pool full of sleeping but excitable sharks, takes approximately 2.75 hours to cover. Stories about landmarks, including the St. Francis Hotel, Maiden Lane, and Lotta’s Fountain, explain each location’s importance, helping tour-takers take in the city’s history.

Customer Reviews

Emperor Norton was engaging, well-prepared and was able to include all of the participants on the tour. It was one of my son's favorite activities on our vacation. Emperor Norton was well versed on the history of San Francisco and made it a fun learning experience for everyone. The care and concern he puts into his tour is evident throughout. Highly recommend!

This was an excellent tour that I would recommend to anyone. "Emperor Norton" leads a very interesting, funny and informative trip into the history of San Francisco. My fiancée and I had a wonderful time and would love to do another one of his tours the next time we are in San Francisco.
