San Francisco Ghost Hunt Walking Tour

A delightfully macabre historical walking tour of Pacific Heights.

Learn about the lives of past San Franciscans - how they lived, how they died... and how they haunted!

Storyteller, magician, lover of haunted history, and friend of Atlas Obscura, Christian Cagigal, will lead us on this historical walking tour of the Pacific Heights neighborhood in his latest venture, The San Francisco Ghost Hunt Walking Tour. If you saw Christian on Obscura Day this year, you know he is a delightful storyteller!

We'll admire the Victorian architecture in this neighborhood largely untouched by the 1906 Earthquake and Fire, learn about the layers of weird and wonderful history behind them, see some of San Francisco's most notorious haunted places, and nervously listen to ghost stories.

Notes about this adventure:

  • This is a 90-120 minute evening walk.
  • Some hills will be traversed.
  • Dress appropriately - those October nights can be chilly!
  • We meet on the corner of Octavia and Bush Streets, by the eucalyptus trees.
