The tour is excellent. Fast moving and informative with good humor to boot. Time passes quickly as you discover interesting details of the city and it's historical background with a character plucked out of history. Our host is also a foodie and...continued

This was a great walking tour and Emperor Norton was a walking encyclopedia of San Francisco history! I highly recommend this tour!

WOW!! I visit San Francisco at least 4 times a year from Florida. I learned more about the city and it's colorful history and in such an entertaining way than in all my previous visits.

"Emperor Norton" had a commanding knowledge of the history of San Francisco. You will certainly feel you got your money's worth during this
2 3/4 hour tour. There were approximately 20 stops in/at historic hotels, monuments and areas from Union...continued

A very lively and entertaining tour given by a delightful and deeply knowledgeable, highly personable modern version of His Lordship, a fine actor who takes his domain quite seriously, but quite humorously as well. The fourteen of us on the tour...continued

Emperor Norton was the best of San Francisco all rolled into one tour. I went with my husband and teenage son, and even though our feet were tired of walking, we loved the sights, sounds, and stories that Emperor Norton had to offer.

Great insight into SF history, delivered with humor and passion; the spirit of the Emperor lives on. I'd take the tour again in a heartbeat.

Had a wonderful time on this walking tour! The tour took us to most of the major areas of downtown and Emperor Norton was very entertaining. It was not your ordinary tour--as a matter of fact we saw other tour groups who were visiting some of the...continued

I have lived in SF for 12 years and honestly didn't know anything the Emperor talked about! He brought us to places right under our noses and told us about the history in so much depth...it was extremely impressive.

This feels like a...continued

Learned things about downtown and the Barbary Coast I never knew, and discovered hidden gems; His Royal Eminence keeps the tour moving and fun for all. Wear comfortable walking shoes and layers to deal with the microclimate changes!

My husband, two sons in their mid-twenties and I all enjoyed the tour. It lasted over three hours which was a bit longer than it needed to but it was fun and filled with lots of San Francisco information. The weather was perfect and it was a...continued

The tour was very enjoyable. It would have been nice if the Emperor showed up at the meeting spot a little earlier than he did. We were wondering if we are at the right spot because we didn't see him until a moment before the tour started. This...continued
