An excellent tour. I learned a lot more about the history of San Francisco, and stories of the Barbary Coast. New spots in SF that I have never seen, and the tour even included a wonderful Puccini aria sung on the street.

Emp Norton kept totally in profile, in all ways, during the tour. He was, however, very kind about our being a bit late, and helping us find him. He is very flexible, as there was a Korean festival so we went off to the side to start. The whole...continued

Great tour! Led by the Emperor himself, no less. Interesting and fun San Francisco tid bits, many I had never heard nor seen before though I've lived here a while and been on other tours. Perhaps a tad long (3 hours) but you can't say he...continued

Emperor Norton is fantastic. He is a encyclopedia of San Francisco history. He has the most amazing stories to tell and makes the tour so much fun.

Informative and entertaining and entertaining throughout-- an extraordinary accomplishment for what is essentially almost a three-hour monologue. It's never dull or hokey, and the Emperoro uses well-chosen old photos and news stories to provide...continued

Norton is a good example of what the city has to offer: it's full of generous and eccentric people! Let Norton lead you in SF with lots of historical facts and tales. You may feel it's odd to follow someone with an outfit in the streets, but it's...continued

This tour was very informative, and great fun! At times I felt like I was really with Emperor Norton in the good ol' days of San Francisco. Would highly recommend it, and I am a native!

We very much enjoyed the history we learned from Emperor Norton. He really lives and dresses the part. We also took his Walking Food Tour of North Beach and really enjoyed that as well! If you can only take one - I think I would choose the...continued

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...continued

It was quite a journey! Walking tour with the Emperor was interesting and entertaining. Even for us, San Francisco inhabitants, there were a lot of surprises. Folks from other places could find even more. The only downsize was a length-abour...continued
