Mission Brunch Tour
French Toast, Sliders, Coffee and Mimosas

The Mission Brunch Tour is the first and only tour of its kind! Brunch is San Francisco’s unofficial meal, beloved by locals and a must-do for visitors. With that in mind, we’ve made a tour to make any day of the week feel like Saturday morning, visiting some of the best brunch places in the Mission District!

In 2.5 hours, you’ll visit 7 food stops, from a hip new Cuban lunch counter to a 1970’s-inspired diner, an acclaimed coffee roaster, an organic ice creamery, frutería and street art-focused cafe.

You’ll eat so much good food (see the whole list below), and learn how the Mission’s food culture has emerged, and where it’s headed.

More than just a chance to skip lines, you’ll leave with both a full stomach, and an understanding the foods we eat, the people who make it all possible, and the history of these establishments.

Vegetarian version available–please specify when booking. No gluten-free option currently.

Special! $5 off with code “realghosts”

This is not a “ghost tour” that just tells stories of hauntings. This is an immersive, hands-on paranormal investigation tour, where you’ll hunt for real ghosts in known haunted places. With a paranormal expert, learn the fundamentals of true ghost hunting, and get a chance to use authentic ghost hunting tools.

This is the only way to access the haunted San Remo Hotel as a non-guest. We’ll also visit the Fior d’ Italia restaurant, a haunted bell-tower atop an old graveyard, and a parking garage reconstructed from the rubble of the Earthquake of 1906.

Please note that this paranormal tour includes a few steep San Francisco hills and staircases, and we consider it “moderately strenuous.” Unfortunately, this tour is not handicap accessible, and cannot accommodate pets.

Learn How to Be a Ghost Hunter

We’ll use real ghost hunting equipment including:

  • EMF Ghost Meters
  • Infrared Temperature Detectors
  • Dowsing Rods
  • Hausbell Bionic Listening Devices
  • SBox Spirit Scanner for Electronic Voice Phenomena

At the end of your adventure, walk away with the knowledge of what it is to be a real ghost hunter.
