Ghosts in the City After Dark Tour

Haunted SF: Ghosts in the City After Dark Tour

Brave San Francisco’s dark past during this 1-hour walking tour of haunted San Francisco. After meeting at the city’s famous Union Square (after dark, of course), a local guide will escort you down haunted allies, through a mysterious hotel, and around historic street corners. You’ll ponder the curious ‘poached eggs’ murder at the Pinecrest Diner and visit the site of Tessie Wall’s storied brothel. After stopping by a few more scary sites, your tour ends at a local bar to lighten the mood. This tour is not recommended for children.

What You Can Expect

A dark and murderous tour through downtown and the Tenderloin. Get creeped out by after-dark tales of famed ghosts, 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 blighted neighborhood gets its name, and see the site of the spectacular suicide that cast a dark glow over the neighborhood.

Nearby, the Pinecrest Diner's bizarre "poached eggs" murder is only rivaled by the Curran Theater's robbery, death, and subsequent...ghost? 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 at the end is Glide Memorial Church, connected to the rise of the cult mastermind Jim Jones.
