NOT CURRENTLY RUNNING. Most of the locations visited on this tour have not reopened yet, so we are unable to run this (even as a private tour).
Paranormal Investigation is a much more hands-on (and disturbing) experience than our nightly $25 ghost tour, Haunted SF.
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.
We’ll use real ghost hunting equipment including:
*We use this to debunk false positives and find sources of “cold spots”
At the end of your adventure, you will walk away with the knowledge of what it is to be a real ghost hunter.
“Ghost Hunter” ticket holders will have their own EMF reader to use throughout the tour. You’ll get priority access to using tools on the tour, including the parabolic listening device. A Ghost Hunter will be chosen to use the dowsing rods.
Observers will be able to join and watch, but will not have their own tools.
