What you'll do

Brave San Francisco’s dark and ghostly past on a real ghost hunt through old Chinatown and Gold Rush alleys. You’ll use modern ghost hunting gear, including a Spirit Box, dowsing rods, and your own EMF detector during the tour, to attempt contact with spirits.

After meeting below the Transamerica Pyramid (after dark, of course), a local guide escorts you down haunted alleys, through mysterious neighborhoods, and around historic street corners.

Stand atop old Gold Rush cemeteries, learn of paranormal activity following mysterious deaths, visit the site of an infamous massacre, hear about Gold Rush–era hauntings, and how Chinatown’s gang feuds shocked the city.

This tour was so fun! I saw parts of SF I’d never been to before and want to return to. The tools were a novel touch that intrigued & our guide, Jade, gave us scary, historical stories in a humorous way. Highly recommend.

Even though our tour got cut short because my partner got sick part of the way through (whether ghosts or food poisoning, to be determined) we still had fun! Here is hoping I can come back and finish the tour sometime in the future :)

This tour was great fun and very informational. In our opinion, it was the best ghost tour we have been on. The EMF readers were a nice touch. Wes is an animated and good storyteller. I will recommend this to friends who are coming to the city.

Awesome tour with Wes! Highly suggest. I've lived in SF for five years and Wes showed me new areas I've never visited and multiple scary/creepy stories that I had never heard. A fun Friday night!

What you need to know: Fun way to get to know SF, Jade is an AMAZING guide, vivid storytelling, very interactive, and an easy walk for any age. I've always thought that taking ghost tours are a great way to get to know a city because you visit places you normally wouldn't and get real insights into the seedy history of a city. We were guided by Jade who was an amazing guide. Very knowledgeable about SF, the ghost stories, and an amazing story teller. She was also very engaging and made everyone feel like they were a part of the story. She made everyone feel welcome and kept us all safe while making sure we got an amazing sense of SF's history and culture. From the EMF readers, to the buttons, to the "spirit box" radio, this ghost tour has a lot of thought put into it and was very thorough and fun to be a part of. All in all, while we weren't ever really scared, we got to know some incredibly detailed stories about SF's checkered past, had some iffy moments with "spirits", and definitely walked away with a new appreciation for SF and it's past. Jade was an unbelievable story teller and you can truly tell that she teaches young kids for a living because she is always ON, which we loved. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a unique date night or for those who are just trying to explore SF.
