What You'll Get


Step into the shoes of notorious 19th-century “crimp” Shanghai Kelly on a guided walking tour of early San Francisco’s brothels, saloons and gambling halls. Crimps were bad, bad men who kidnapped other men and forced them to work on ships – which meant they led fascinating lives in the seedy underbellies of American ports. Gaze into the fascinating history of the Barbary Coast through a truly unique lens as your two-hour tour uncovers bars originally built in the carcass of beached sailing vessels, narrow alleyways where ladies of “questionable repute’” would congregate, and even an actual “shanghaiing tunnel” where crimps would deliver their unfortunate victims to waiting vessels.
