Overview

The Vampire Tour of San Francisco is a walking tour of Nob Hill, conducted by Mina Harker from "Dracula." The script contains approximately 85% true San Francisco history with fun vampire lore and humor mixed in. The tour is not gory or frightening, so it is suitable for all ages. Learn many fun and some surprising facts about San Francisco’s history and how vampires played an important role in that history. The walk is very easy, with no climbing up and down hills, and is wheelchair friendly.  The tour is conducted on the first Saturday of each month from May through October, and on Halloween night, starting at 8:00 pm.  Nob Hill can get very chilly at night, so please dress warm.  There will be a costume contest on Halloween night.  Those who do not dress up will help me judge those who do.  There will be some very cool prizes!

I grew up near San Francisco. There is much about the city that I never knew. On a whim, I decided to spend Halloween on the Vampire Tour up on Nob Hill. I never go to Nob Hill. I've probably been to the Fairmont once to see a show. I was concerned about parking and driving up some steep grade....
