A fun, interesting and informative tour. A beautiful day to walk the streets of San Francisco with one of The City's most colorful characters. Perhaps some of favorite moments was seeing how others reacted to the Emperor, awe, delight and...continued

Fantastic! I've lived in the Bay Area for 6 years and am leaving for good in a few weeks (tears will be shed). Decided to take this tour for kicks with my best friend, and it blew out minds. Best decision we made in a long time. 3 hour tour,...continued

A different way to see San Francisco, with a knowledgeable tour guide in character as one of the city's most famous eccentrics. Our tour lasted nearly three hours, so be prepared and wear comfortable walking shoes and bring layers (to combat the...continued

Very nice, interesting, well informed, engaging guide, learned some new things about a city I've visited many times and saw things I never would have seen on my own. Definitely worth the time & money.

As a local, I have participated in a lot of tours in and around San Francisco. Hands down, Emperor Norton's is one of the BEST!

More suitable for a family with youngish children. Also should mention in description that it is not a loop so you get left off far from where you started. Visitors may find themselves in a bit of difficulty to find their way vack

Outstanding walking tour. The emperor is a great story teller, nicely organized material and kept our interest for 2.5 hours.

A great tour. I took friends from the Bay Area and they were astounded how much they learned. And the walk was also a good work out! I can't wait till I can try another of the Emperor's tours!

Emperor Norton hosts a fascinating (and, at nearly 3 hours, long) journey into San Francisco's past. The Emperor is chock full of stories and anecdotes about the city's eccentric, rambunctious history as he guides around us downtown SF, and is...continued
