What You'll Get


Take a tour through San Francisco's waterfront history alongside one of its most colorful characters. Emperor Norton was a prominent businessman who lost everything on a bad investment. Instead of throwing in the towel, he responded to his failure by declaring himself "Emperor of the United States and Protector of Mexico." San Francisco embraced this quirky character, treating him as royalty and even accepting his self-created currency. Tour guide Joseph Amster incorporates his journalistic and acting talents to provide a one-of-a-kind tour in which he takes on the persona of Emperor Norton and introduces you to the history of the city's most unique and interesting sites through the eyes of this larger-than-life unofficial mascot. Over the course of just under three hours, you'll cover about two miles along the waterfront, from the historic Ferry Building to The Cannery.

Event Description:

Hear the fascinating stories of The Embarcadero • The Emperor Norton Bay Bridge • The Produce District • Coit Tower • The Labor Movement • Meigg’s Warf • The Muni F Line • Levi’s Jeans • The Cannery • Irish Coffee • and much more!

The tour lasts approximately two hours and 30 minutes.
