Hobnobbing with Gobs of Snobs: Nob Hill Tour

Union Square
What to expect
  • Explore Nob Hill, San Francisco's wealthiest neighborhood on an entertaining walking tour
  • Discover the extraordinary corruption that built Nob Hill as you visit historic mansions, Grace Church, and The Spite Fence
  • See breathtaking architecture and answer trivia questions
Nob Hill is the pinnacle of San Francisco's elite, filled to the brim with world-class mansions, hotels, and churches. But as is so often the case, the cleanest streets are sometimes home to the dirtiest secrets. Learn how The Railroad Barons and The Bonanza Kings used insider trading, price gouging, money laundering, forgery, bribery, and more to build their empires from San Francisco's most exclusive address. You'll visit the surviving buildings from the Fire of 1906, The Spite Fence, which literally separated the "Haves" from the "Have Nots," and the Grace Church, a 50 year old church with 500 year old flair. This isn't one of those tours where you follow along, eyes glazing over as you try to absorb dry facts and figures. Interactive fun is at the heart of the tour. You'll answer questions, play games, and laugh along the way. Good thing that kind of corruption is ancient history. Right? Probably.

Note: Food is not included in the tour, but the group will often stop for coffee or a snack mid-way. This tour runs in rain or shine. Exact meeting location will be provided upon confirmation.
