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

Emperor Norton is an excellent historian, teacher, and guide--funny, colorful, experienced, and extremely knowledgeable. We've been on many tours and we definitely learned things we didn't know on this one. Well worth it! And he said there's a...continued

The Emperor was charming and knowledgeable, and conducted his tour with great care and obvious pre-planning. We like the way he interacted with shopkeepers, tour bus drivers, and others along the route of his tour. Definitely a must suggestion...continued

I love California history. Emperor Norton made his era in San Francisco come alive. I found out many special details.

What a great attraction. We went as a family, including a fourteen year old boy, who admitted at the end that it was pretty cool. There are places on the tour that we would have never gone to on our own. Bring your camera as there are some great...continued

The history is great, the tour stops are unusual and interesting, fellow tour guests were wonderful. My group was expecting a two-hour tour, but it clocked in at a little over three hours. That was a little too long and kind of spoiled other plans...continued
