We finished the tour on the edge of Chinatown and North Beach so we had quite a few options.

Good time, lot of fun - but not truly intellectually stimulating. It did however, give me a lot of fun facts and some knowledge about an exciting yet hidden part of San Francisco history.

More Information


Gold wasn’t the only major find of 1848 – San Franciscans also discovered an appetite for vice in an area that became known as The Barbary Coast.

Whether you were a miner after the golden fleece or a rogue hoping to fleece the naive, the underworld of San Francisco was the place to be.

You’ll learn about ruthless kidnappers, Chinese opium dens, arsonist gangs, illegal gambling establishments, and hear unbelievable tales from the world’s oldest profession.
