Your vampire guide's name is Mina.  Don't worry, this vampire does not bite and she won't take you underground or anywhere too dark.  She will guide you on a fun and humorous walking tour to give you a lighthearted perspective about vampires.

Nob Hill is no stranger to the rich and famous and the San Francisco citizens built their mansions atop hills.  There is a secret world that lurks beneath the finest hotels, restaurants and wealthy homes.  The dark tunnels below are the safe havens for vampires.

The tour begins as Mina gives you the origin of becoming a vampire.  During stops at Grace Cathedral, Nob Hill Cafe, Huntington Park, Pacific Union Club, the Fairmont and Mark Hopkins hotels, you will learn about San Francisco history and vampire lore.  Mina's tour information is about 85% true San Francisco history and the rest is a mystery you will enjoy trying to decide if it is fact or fiction!

This tour gives you "History with a Twist," and is a two-time winner of The Bay Guardian's "Best of the Bay" Reader's Poll.  Mina's vampire tour also 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 dramatic adventure that combines Nob Hill history with vampire fantasy.

This tour is 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 warm. 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.
