Why We’re the Best

About San Francisco Ghost Tours

The façade of high society hides a seedy and frightening side of San Francisco that only shows at the edges of this city.

Our tour visits 8 or 12 of the supernatural hotspots that hold fascinating stories. Our standard tour takes around an hour to complete and will have you be at the very spots where our terrible stories happened. The Extended tour adds an additional 30 mins and another 4 haunting stories that take you deeper into the haunted history of San Francisco.

In San Francisco, the scent of death lingers after the fog clears, and the history of this city is intertwined with destruction lurking beneath the surface. The fire that followed the earthquake of 1904 burned much of the early history of this city. One location that was partially saved is the Pacific-Union Club, bought from Silver Baron James C. Flood after the earthquakes, they considered tearing down the stone shell, which was all that had survived the fires. Instead, they rebuilt the inside, even importing more of the New England Brownstone the exterior had been built with. Their unofficial mantra is reportedly ‘no women, no Democrats, no reporters’. Who knows what lurks inside now.

The rest of the city is perhaps the polar opposite of that club, one of the country’s hubs for diversity and innovation, San Francisco’s cheery reputation is earned, but you don’t have to scratch much before the can touch a creepy eeriness that breaks just out of view.

From the cursed monument in Union Square to the Huntington Mansion, which stood in the current Huntington Park, the mansion was built by the man who pioneered the Central Pacific Railroad, the first engine to ride the CPR rails was named after him. His magnificent house was reduced to rubble, and the wealthy residents were queueing for soup and blankets with everyone else.
