Without a doubt, the BEST city tour I have had of San Francisco! This is a "must-see" tour for anyone coming to the city. Countess Lola Montez is absolutely incredible and full of rich historic details about the early days of the city. You...continued

Lola is a delight and has fascinating stories to share. We thoroughly enjoyed learning the bawdy history of the Barbary Coast.

This experience exceeded my expectations. My only regret is that I did not bring pen and paper to make notes of the may places and people we learned about from the Countess Lola Mendez, a true SF historian. We made our way through Chinatown, North...continued

This is the BEST researched and presented historical tour regarding China Town's gory past. Conscription, drugs, human trafficking, violence, murder and general extortion mayhem.

Countess Lola took me and my fiance' on a very interesting "x-rated" tour of San Francisco's China Town District and told us about the times of the Gold Rush when gold was plenty and women were few.
So fun and entertaining ... Lola is clearly very...continued

It was an awesome walking tour full of rich and colorful history. The tour guide, Lola Montez, can be a bit long-winded at times - but she's hilarious, knowledgable, and an all around hoot. I highly recommend this tour!

Wonderful couple of hours with Ms.Lola.
Learned so much about the 1850s San Francisco gold rush days, and she made the period come alive with salacious stories of al the 'goings-on' in the City.
Not to mention how she would stop traffic in their...continued
