SF’s Best Haunted Walking Tour

Haunted SF is San Francisco’s only real ghost hunting excursion. You will travel through Gold Rush-era neighborhoods after dark, seeking out paranormal activity while learning of the city’s haunted past.

Plus, you get access to ghost hunting gear! Every Ghost Hunter ticket includes use of an EMF detector during the tour. The host will carry other modern ghost hunting tools, which will be used throughout the tour.

Our 5 Star Rated walking tour is a macabre and murderous tour through the streets of downtown San Francisco.

Not “just a ghost tour,” this night tour includes tales of unexplained deaths, scandalous murders, the old red light district, famed spirits, Chinatown assassins, and much more.

Children are welcome at your discretion — the tour does include some talk of violence and the macabre, but is generally considered family-friendly. 

Special! $5 off tickets with code GHOST20.

COVID policies:

If you are fully vaccinated, you are not required to wear a mask.

The tour will be fully outdoors, and you are encouraged to socially distance.
