My boyfriend and I did this tour as our final event in SF. It was a lovely (and horrifying) ending of our trip. Mary is a wonderful storyteller and I could really picture the stories laid out for us. I definitely recommend this tour (w/Mary) for anyone interested in some of the darker history of SF.

I loved this tour! My tour guide, Mary, was engaging and gave lots of detail. The info that he shared was very interesting. I would definitely do another tour with this company and guide again!

What You'll Get

A ghostly and murderous tour through downtown and the Tenderloin. Get creeped out by after-dark tales of famed ghosts and paranormal activity, mysterious deaths, ruthless villains, the old red light district, shocking assassins and more. Meets near Union Square. Not recommended for children.

From Union Square enter the St. Francis Hotel, famous for its past guests involved in politics, Hollywood and the arts, but infamous for a number of mysterious deaths. In the Tenderloin, hear how this neighborhood got its name, and see the site of the spectacular suicide that cast a dark glow over the neighborhood.

Nearby, the Curran Theater's robbery, death, and subsequent ghost still haunt the area. Down the street, see where the Zodiac Killer picked up his final victim before disappearing forever. Around the corner was the notorious brothel run by madam Tessie Wall. And back on Powell Street, the Union Square Hotel has been a hotbed of paranormal accounts.

What we see:

  • St. Francis Hotel, nefarious Hollywood deaths
  • Curran Theater, haunted playhouse
  • The “suicide alley” of 1911
  • Tenderloin District, underbelly of SF crime
