Mary did a fantastic job conveying some of San Francisco’s tales of frights. We left chilled in more ways than just the weather!

Did not walk you through anything. Told stories, talked a lot about his other tours..... would have liked if we had I’d actually went through some buildings and maybe some more current haunting. Guy was ok but as he said this all came from old archived newspapers....

As fans of ghosts murder in mystery for over 30 years my husband and I thought this would be a great tour for us in San Francisco. Our guide was adorable, but it straight to o as fans of ghosts murder mystery for over 30 years my husband and I thought this would be a great tour for us in San Francisco. Our guide was adorable, but a cute street tour with fun stories is all it is, and it was so windy and cold! Be better prepared than we were. It would’ve helped me personally if there was a bathroom break, or smoke break, or a stop to get a hot drink. Our guide was great, but I’d hoped for scary.

This tour and Wild Wes were great. Wes was a fantastic story teller and navigated the city seamlessly with our tour group. We truly enjoyed the whole experience from start to end. It was so much fan getting to walk around and see places associated with the stories. Loved getting to see the darker side of this city. Would HIGHLY recommend!

I was initially unsatisfied with this tour due to the large size of the group and the difficulty hearing the tour guide in many rather noisy locations. However, to the tour group's credit they acknowledged these problems which was due to several unanticipated participants. I think they will certainly change their practices in the future to improve the experience.

Loved this tour, Mary Vice was the best tour guide, so knowledgeable and so much fun! She even told us that she was performing in a show at the Oasis the following night, so we took her advice and had a blast! As for this tour, I highly recommend you make time for it, especially if you enjoy mysteries, unsolved crimes, ghost stories, etc! You'll love it!
