A ghostly and murderous 1.25 hour tour through downtown and Union Square. Get creeped out by after-dark tales of famed ghosts and paranormal activity, mysterious deaths, ruthless villains, the old red light district, shocking assassins and more. Meets near Union Square. Not recommended for young children. From Union Square enter the St. Francis Hotel, famous for its past guests involved in politics, Hollywood and the arts, but infamous for a number of mysterious deaths. In the Tenderloin, hear how this neighborhood got its name, and see the site of the spectacular suicide that cast a dark glow over the neighborhood. Down the street, see where the Zodiac Killer picked up his final victim before disappearing forever. Around the corner was the notorious brothel run by madam Tessie Wall. Further along, you'll hear of Gold Rush ghosts and hauntings we still come across. And back on Powell Street, the Union Square Hotel has been a hotbed of paranormal accounts.
