San Francisco Ghost Hunt Walking Tour
With all the interesting events that have occurred in San Francisco, there are bound to be a few disgruntled spirits hanging around. This tour takes you to meet them. Your guide, gifted with a suitably mordant sense of humor, will regale you with ghost stories to put you in the mood as you visit places suspected of hauntings and hear about the evidence of ghostly visitations. This one-mile walking tour includes one moderate hill and lasts about two hours. Tours leave from the lobby of the Queen Anne Hotel and cost USD20 per adult, USD10 under 16 (cash only).
This was great fun. Even if you don't believe in ghosts the historic stories are well worth it. You can tell the guide is well informed and has researched his stories, and tells you where you can access his sources.
$20, 2 hrs of walking around one block and one hour of sitting around in a lobby. didnt see anything interesting, everything on this site and his site is exactly everything you are going to see. the only thing you get in return at the end of the tour is a cheap ghost pin with a glow stick.
Boring as heck because all you did was walk around on these steep hills. The mans getting old and you can barely hear his voice. The whole thing is a hoax to get more business into the hotel. The hotel is the only place that they let you walk around inside and everything else is just walk around SF and stop and he tells you a history story. Wasted my money and time. Save your money and go somewhere else to have a nice steak dinner instead.
This would have been a fun experience had the host not resorted to magic tricks. I should have been worried when he used magic tricks at the beginning. This guy had us test a skeleton key (I was selected to be one of the participants) at the scene of a Victorian mansion that turned in my hand. The host insisted that this key was from the mansion and officially a haunted artifact. Later I found (online) that the skeleton key is a standard magic trip. That made my husband and I doubt the authenticity of the rest of the tour. Very disappointing. Why should he resort to that?
The guide for the tour was such a great storyteller and enhanced the experience with some slight of hand tricks. Don't expect to enter any of the old victorian homes, though. You will only tour the hotel where the tour begins and walk to the various victorian homes where the tour will stop and the guide will provide you with stories and information.
I have participated on "ghost tours" in several other cities and was a little disappointed. That being said, the guide was very enthusiastic and very knowledgeable about the history of the area. I wish he had played up that angle more and if anything "ghostly" after that had happened, then so be it. I agree with an earlier review that is was somewhat campy, but it was an interesting way to spend an evening.
Since I was traveling alone, as a single female, it was a nice opportunity to get out with a group of people and explore some of the sites in a secure environment.
i looked a round the rooms before the trip and seen things with my own eyes that i would not beleve any one else iam 6 feet 4 300 lbs been to war and back and some of the things i seen made me look twice . my sister started out and things happend to change her mind
real cool trip debie & big mike 7/1/07
First of all, I would like to say that my roommate and I had a good time on this tour. The guide was very knowledgeable about the area, very friendly, and a good story teller. Personally, I do not think this should have been called a Ghost Hunt Walking Tour. It more properly would be titled, Ghost History Walking Tour. On the walk you see some amazing architecture and some nice views of the city. You learn about why these ghosts haunt the area and you get a good feel of the city's history. I do have to second the other reviews in saying wear good shoes and bring a jacket. So, it was not super but it is something fun for a group to do when all the other activities close up around 5pm.
When looking for a San Francisco hotel with a prime location, look no further than the Hilton San Francisco hotel.
