Walk to some of San Francisco's most notorious haunted places. Hear thrilling stories based on documented research. Discover weird and wonderful San Francisco history. Feel tingles go up your spine. *And maybe even SEE a ghost yourself.... (*This may include your host dressed up in a sheet...no promises...) What is this? The San Francisco Ghost Hunt Walking Tour is a historical walking tour of the Pacific Heights neighborhood, one of the few neighborhoods to survive The Great Earthquake and Fire of 1906. You'll walk a mile on tree-lined streets in a safe residential area. You'll learn about real historic names of San Francisco — how they lived, how they died, and the reports of their hauntings ever since. We don't make it up. We just report it. Will I see a ghost? Over the past 17 years, strange things have happened on the San Francisco Ghost Hunt Walking Tour: orbs have appeared in photographs, coldspots have been felt indoors, acorns have been known to pelt people on the back (but only the really mean people). Keep an eye out, your senses open, and your camera ready (an EMF reader couldn't hurt either) and you might have your own strange experience. Overall, the spirits we visit are safe and they won't follow you home. Otherwise, that would have a bad effect on our sales. Where does it start? The San Francisco Ghost Hunt Walking Tour meets on the corner of Octavia and Bush Streets, in front of 1801 Bush Street. Look for the 6 eucalyptus trees. That's where you'll find us. What should I wear? San Francisco is a beautiful city with mild temperatures year round, but our weather is much more like the wet Pacific Northwest than sunny Southern California. When you leave for your day of SF adventuring, wear layers you can take off and put on, not shorts. The weather will feel lovely and warm from Noon to 4pm. Then the fog rolls in and even the hardiest of snowbirds can't handle the chilly, damp, bay air that bites to the bone. When does it happen? Reservations are now required. The San Francisco Ghost Hunt Walking Tour ​runs most nights. Wednesday – Sunday 7pm May 18 – October 31, 2016. Rain or starshine. CLOSED MONDAY AND TUESDAY.

When traveling for vacation we always make sure to do a ghost tour when coming to a new town and as many times as we've been to San Francisco have never done one. Decided on this tour to get away from the bustle of downtown,...More

A must if you are into this type of stuff. If you are lucky enough you will get Momo as your guide. He just gives it that special touch and makes you feel like you are reliving the incidents. (While being completely safe)

Thank you so much! We really appreciate the the kind review! However, we don't have a Momo working for us, just Christian the owner (in the picture above). You may have meant this review for a different ghost tour company?
