Summary of The Day: Travel back in time with your slightly deranged expedition leader to dig up sordid tales of days gone by.
Along the way we'll search for ghosts from the Barbary Coast, meet harlots in the back alleys of Chinatown while avoiding being "Shanghaied" on the waterfront. Explore the haunts of the low and the vile of every kind -the petty thief, the tramp, the whore-monger, lewd women, cut throats and murderers - and other fine citizens. Follow your time traveler guide as you creep quietly into hidden spots to learn about the Tong Wars, underground gambling and opium dens. Tall tales and scary yarns abound in the sordid past of the City by the Bay.
This one-of-a-kind interactive tour covers infamous San Francisco haunts: North Beach “Little Italy”, Chinatown and the Barbary Coast.
