I’m a San Francisco history buff, and this by far was the most detailed, documented, and informative tour I’ve been on (and I’ve attended most of the city’s walking tours.) It was also just plain fun!
Two and a half hours of fascinating facts as we strolled about the downtown and Barbary Coast areas, the time flew by. The “Emperor” in peerless period dress, pointed out things of beauty and interest for the entire time. He kept things moving and it seemed everyone has a fantastic time. He also had access to some neat private/business places, so we felt sort of special.
The only other walking tour I can give full stars to is the SF Ghost Hunt, and this Time Travel adventure is equal in fact, fun, and fiction. I can’t recommend this tour enough for someone in San Francisco for the first time, or for locals who want to learn more about their hometown, I was surprised as how many new things I learned!

Leashed, well-behaved dogs are welcome to attend with ticketed owners.
