Mission Murals and Graffiti Tour

Street Art In the Mission District


Special! $20 tickets with code GRAFFITI

The Mission Street Art Tour is an opportunity to discover the historic Mission District through the murals, graffiti and the stories behind them.

We will dive deep into Street Art culture while learning about the stories that have shaped this neighborhood, and the amazing role that arts and culture play, bringing people together to create political change.

In this 2 hr tour, we will learn about Mission muralism, and public art and street art’s intersections with social movements like feminism, latinx organizing, anti-gentrification movements, and organizing against injustices like police brutality.

We’ll introduce you to the stories of local heroes of the arts world, and dive into the ongoing effort to keep the culture and heritage of the Mission alive. We’ll explore graffiti culture, the writers and artists that make Bay Area graffiti unique, and with a little luck, we will run into one of the many artists and curators that are actively creating on the back alleys of the Mission.

Goals of this tour:

See historic works and hear the stories behind them: how activism and art intersect in political works.

Understand how the Mission District’s social movements shaped San Francisco into the revolutionary city it is today.

Learn how large-scale murals are created, how graffiti writing took off in the Mission, views on commercialization of street art, and the terminology of the spray can world.

See stunning political street art, and understand how graffiti writers, feminists, Latinx communities and neighborhood activists have fought, and continue to fight, to keep the soul of SF alive in the face of gentrification, preserving local culture.

SF’s Best Haunted Walking Tour

Haunted SF is our 1.5 hour ghost walk through Chinatown and the Jackson Square historic district. This tour is rated PG-13 for some talk of violence, gore and the macabre. Children are welcome at your discretion.

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.
