It'll be a great evening when you take this Vampire Tour in San Francisco.

For over 100 years, the Nob Hill area has been home to San Francisco's most rich and famous citizens. Mighty railroad barons built their mansions atop the hills, and many of city's finest hotels and restaurants are located there. But a secret world lurks beneath the wealth and opulence: vampires live in hidden tunnels below Nob Hill!

On this small group walking tour, you'll learn about the darker side of San Francisco from an exotic 127-year-old Vampire. Don't worry, she won't bite. You won't go underground or anywhere else too spooky or dark. This is a fun, lighthearted tour for the Undead or prospective Undead with a sense of humor; call it "History with a Twist." This is one experience you will never forget!

This tour is a two-time winner of The Bay Guardian's "Best of the Bay" Reader's Poll, and has been featured on HBO, Showtime, The Travel Channel, The History Channel and The Learning Channel.

About the Tour

Become a member of the Drac Pack! Explore the Gothic side of Nob Hill with your hostess Mina, a Vampiress who was embraced by Count Dracula in London in 1897 and banished by him to the United States. Mina has resided on and under the streets of San Francisco for over 100 years. Hear her story, and learn how vampires have played an important part in the shaping of San Francisco as we know it today. A playwright, she guides visitors on a two-hour nighttime adventure that combines Nob Hill history with vampire fantasy. About 85% of the script is documented San Francisco history. The other 15% is -- you decide! You'll just have to take your guide's word for it.

The tour begins as she relates her origin as a vampire. During stops at Grace Cathedral, Nob Hill Cafe, Huntington Park, Pacific Union Club, Fairmont and Mark Hopkins hotels, you'll learn about San Francisco history and vampire lore. It's all in good fun, though, as the cheerful smiling Vampire Mistress leads her little flock to the tour's end!


What To Wear

  • San Francisco can be very chilly at night, so dress warmly. It's usually quite windy on the top of Nob Hill and the evening fog can make it feel even colder...but that just adds to the mystery!
  • This is a walking tour, so please wear comfortable shoes.
  • There will be a costume contest, so look your worst!
