Jade was superb! We learned a lot about the haunted places in the city. As a native to San Francisco I never knew of these locations Jade provided history. Thank you, Jade!

I go on ghost tours in each city I travel to and this was definitely one of my favorite! Fun stories, but what really set it apart was the fun equipment. We got to use dousing rods and a spirit box to try to contact “the other side”. Super fun and a great experience. Thank you!

Spookable, well rounded ghost tour
Beth_P
, Mar 2022
We enjoyed Jade's enthusiasm and knowledge as she took us on the tour. It was misting during it but that didn't affect our experience. Lots of neat historical pieces shared too although we didn't actually feel the presence of any spirits, it was fun. The trek wasn't too challenging to keep up with for a couple in our group that had knee issues. Jade was focused on safety as it was slick from the rain which we appreciated. This was the highlight of our SF trip for our ghost loving daughter!! Thank you!!!

M a ghostbuster now 😀
Leeza_S

The tour was very engaging and informative, we have lived in the north beach for 3 years but barely knew the history of the streets we walk on everyday. So much of content to chew on to and explore even after the tour. The EMF readers were fun, we fell like ghostbusters for 90 mins 😀😀. The tour guide was fun and very respectful, we stayed on after the tour to talk for a bit and it was great to talk to her. Overall, time spent well.

Needs more true crime elements. Or a title change to the tour. The EMFs were fun but not vital to the enjoyment of your.

Guide was great. Good stories and history. To bring it to the next level you need to go inside buildings and tunnels as we have done on similar tours.
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
Hi Vance! Great to meet you this weekend, and I'm so glad you and your child had a fun time, and enjoyed the stories, history and my storytelling :) As we're reopening during this pandemic, 3 star reviews do hurt our business. I hope you can consider this for future businesses you review. Thank you!

Ghostly fun (and some history) for the whole family
Chris_S
, Dec 2021
Wes was my tour guide. Very informative, energetic, and passionate. Loved the mix of history, ghost stories, and occasional campy moment. Each customer is given and able to use a meter that measures electromagnetic energy, which is common in paranormal interaction. I'm 27 and was all up in it HA! The tour is PG but is fun for kids and adults alike. I was only in SF for a short time and enjoyed that I got to see the parts of the city from the tour. I'm not sure I would've visited these areas otherwise. I'm from New Orleans so I've done several ghost tours over the years, but Haunted SF definitely exceeded others I've done in the past. The tour ends in front of a church in SF Chinatown. Wes mentioned a Chinese cocktail bar just a few blocks down called Li Po, famous for the Chinese Mai Tai. Enjoy the tour and make a stop at Li Po after for a post-tour Mai Tai! :)
