Halloween may be over, but there are still haunted happenings going on in San Francisco (and in Monterey!). Here are five tours to delight the ghost and vampire lover in you.
Jim Fassbinder, host of San Francisco Ghost Hunt, will lead you on a tour of some of San Francisco’s most notorious haunted places. Hear ghost stories based on serious documented research, see and touch eerie haunted artifacts, and learn how you can catch a ghost. Tours run nightly except Tuesdays for $20.
Join Mina Harker on The Vampire Tour of San Francisco, where you’ll visit Grace Cathedral, The Nob Hill Cafe, Huntington Park, The Pacific-Union Club, The Fairmont Hotel, and The Mark Hopkins Hotel. Mina will tell you the history of each of these stops, and how Vampires played a role in that history. This is a fun, lighthearted tour for the Undead or prospective Undead with a sense of humor! Tours run Friday and Saturday nights for $20.
The Haunted Haight Walking Tour is an evening adventure through the Haight-Ashbury. Your host, Tommy Netzband, is a licensed tour guide, long time resident, and ghost historian. Learn all about the macabre history of the Haight, hear real ghost stories from the area, see where infamous people lived, and more! Advance reservations are required. Tours are $20 and take place Nov. 13 and 20 and Dec. 11 and 18, 2010.
SF Chinatown Ghost Tours takes you on a walking tour of old haunts of San Francisco’s Chinatown. Tours are available by reservation only on Friday and Saturday nights and are $24.
If you’re in the Monterey area, don’t miss the Ghost Trolley of Old Monterey. The tour includes some of Monterey’s most notoriously haunted buildings, such as the oldest church in California, Monterey’s historic cemetery, and old legendary adobes. If the tour has less than 10 people, a van may be used instead of a trolley. Advance reservations are required for this $28 tour that runs Wednesday through Saturday nights.
