Tour Guide: Haunted SF 

We’re looking for a creepy, engaging storyteller to join our team and lead our ghost tour! This is a lot of fun, and a great chance to perform regularly for groups of 10-20 people.The tour is 1.5 hours around the Tenderloin/Union Square, and enters some hotel lobbies along the way. Our ideal guide is a performer with experience in theater and/or improv, and is probably a fan of true crime podcasts, has theories on who the Zodiac was, and has personal experience with the paranormal too.

You must be able to command an audience’s attention and be the star of the show, while balancing acting both eerie AND personable, accommodating guests from around the world. Because we’re in the Tenderloin at night, you must be comfortable interacting gracefully and respectfully with folks who live on the street.

The tour runs after dark (start times are between 6:30-8:30pm) year-round, and we can offer 2 shifts per week, with likelihood of additional public and private tours.

Pay is $50 per tour + tips.

Wild SF Tours is an artist/activist-owned company, and our mission is to provide a great job to working creatives, keeping the artistic soul of San Francisco alive. We do not tolerate discrimination, and are a diverse staff with many women, queer folks and people of color on our incredible team.
