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
  • Stories of disturbed cemeteries and forgotten graves

Super fun time seeing SF spooky side

So much fun! Great stories and fun to see parts of SF that I have not seen and learn about the history of those areas. Kids loved the ghost hunting. Something for all ages — from elementary up. Would very highly recommend.

Seeing the copper tools to work while asking the spirits yes or no questions, while using this tool we got to use the EMF readers that would go off after each questions was answered!

Must hear Tales of San Francisco
Luis_F

Whether you’re a skeptic or a believer, it’s definitely something worth trying. The tour guide was very friendly and made the tour worth while. My girlfriend and I loved that our tour guide Jodie lit sage and prayed for the group just in case any bad spirits were in fact amongst us. We got great creepy history about the city and felt protected from bad entities.

Thank you Luis! So glad to hear you enjoyed Jade's stories and rituals.
