Good Storyteller
, Mar 2020
Rainy was a good storyteller and overall, the tour was interesting. Seemed to have more stops than go - meaning we spent a lot of time standing listening to the stories but would have appreciated visiting a few haunted spots.
Great storytelling

Lisa was a great storyteller. We enjoyed the walk and the information. Would like it if we were taken to a few visible gravestones as the story states you can see them around the city.
Phenomenal speaker and very entertaining throughout the whole experience

Great performance and great stories

Great intro to Inion Square area as well as lots of stories of ghosts and murder. Our guide (Rainny) was a pro. Kept the crowd engaged and interested. I recommend this tour if you want a guide to this interesting area in SF.
Walking through the St Francis Hotel and telling the story about level 1221. It sent a chill down my spine.

The Host was awesome and very knowledgeable of the San Francisco History. It was the way she would tell each story which would leave you feeling excited but scared.
Drag, drama, and deliciously delighful

Our tour guide was outstanding. She did her research, was funny, stunning to look at, and gave me great directions back to my hotel. If you are looking for a fun night out, it is well worth the time and money for this tour.
