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

We enjoyed our tour with the Countess. She had a great sense of humor as well as amazing amount of knowledge. It was fun but also covered history of SF that I was not aware. We attended with 2 out of towners who also found it fascinating. ...continued

Loly was charming, sweet, charismatic with a lovely presence. I did enjoy some of the tour and history. However, a great deal of the material and content was disturbing and in bad taste. I realize that it's HISTORY and it needs to be told. I...continued

My partner & I went on this tour on Sunday (12/8/13). We had no trouble spotting our guide, Lola Montez, in the middle of Portsmouth Square in Chinatown. She recounted her colorful past and even sang and showed us some moves from her famous...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

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!
