What You Can Expect

Fire Engine Ghost Tour of San Francisco's Presidio

Ride a Vintage Fire Engine

Meet at The Cannery at Fisherman’s Wharf in the evening and get into character as you put on your fire gear and board a vintage 1955 open-top Mack Fire Engine truck!

Head up Lombard Street and wind your way up to the foggy Presidio. Once a World War II military post, the Presidio becomes a haunted playground for ghosts at night.

Your local guide will dig up spooky tales of the park’s eerie past, like how it served as an ancient Indian burial ground. Visit the San Francisco National Cemetery, which lay to rest thousands of WWII veterans, and pass the Old Hospital, where you may still hear the clanks of iron tools against medical trays from days long past.

Hear stories about the ghost soldiers who haunt Infantry Row, the 19th-century brick barracks that housed military troops. Pass Crissy Field and Fort Point, which has guarded the Golden Gate since the Civil War. Throughout your tour, your fun, trusted tour guide will be sure to give you a few spooks!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2012


3 star rating: Worth doing November 2013

I was actually a little disappointed. Being into the paranormal, I was really looking forward to hearing "ghost tales" about one of my favorite places in San Francisco. Unfortunately, the tales were a bit 'Son of Svengoolie'-ish.

Having said that, it was a fun evening out. The ride through the Presidio at night was well worth the ticket price. So, if you're up for some cheesy, ghostly fun, I would highly recommend. If you're looking for more of the paranormal side, you might want to reconsider.
