Overview

Brave San Francisco’s dark and ghostly past on a real ghost hunt through old Chinatown alleys. You’ll use modern ghost hunting gear, including your own EMF detector during the tour. After meeting near historic Portsmouth Square (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 infamous brothels, hear about Gold Rush–era hauntings, and how Chinatown’s gang wars shocked the city. Your tour ends back near Portsmouth Square. This tour is not recommended for children under 13.
  • Chinatown’s alleyways after dark
  • Access to professional ghost hunting tools
  • Hauntings of the old Gold Rush district
  • Site of haunted underground “Shanghai” tunnels

It was very interesting didn’t know nothing about that history in San Francisco. The tools they used also brought more to the experience, and Paul and Jade were very sweet informative people... I recommend this for my family and friends...

Great tour but maybe also a bit of a bummer?

Great tour! The tour guide (Wes) was great. I thought the tour overall was very interesting, but I think it maybe lacked a little information wise and also it seemed to really focus on really depressing stories with little to no uplifting portions. I've been on a few ghost tours in the past, and while the tours obviously talked about depressing topics (tragedies, people dying: duh), they also made sure to incorporate funny/uplifting parts to kind of even out the sad parts. However, I did really enjoy how respectful Wes was to the ghosts, and how at the end he made sure to cleanse everybody of any lingering connections to ghosts. I thought that was really well thought out and gave me a peace of mind as I left :). But, again, I did feel kind of down in the dumps afterwards, which I don't really like to feel like after doing something fun. Otherwise, great tour.

Tour guides were very friendly and engaging. Even if your not a believer the history and stories are worth it.

Amazing and fun tour! While the Ghost hunting part was great, I felt like it lacked some details with the true crime and mystery part! It was so interesting I wanted more details and more stories! I recommend it!

Thank you Martha! Great ideas about the true crime element -- we are happy to lean into that more :)

Nice guy - cheesy emf readers. Explains how it will electrical spikes. Every time he said anyone got a spike? Guess where we were standing? Over electrical boxes or telephone cabling. Would not recommend

Hey Manuel! Nice to chat with you about this, and glad to hear you enjoyed other elements of the tour (the history and storytelling). As I was saying, part of the fun is that we get EMF readings in totally different places nightly, and I don’t deliberately stop us near electrical boxes, though it may have felt that way on your tour. I sent you a full refund -- hope you had a great rest of your time in SF :) -Wes

Our guide was great. He was knowledgeable about the city and its very interesting history. We had a small experience of something but it wasn't interested in communicating with us. Very good experience 👌

Wes was an awesome tour guide!! Plenty of great stories and history from around the city! He is very knowledgeable about his facts, provides pictures on his iPad to give realism to what he’s speaking about, and keeps the tour flowing at an exciting pace!
