    Lousy Chinatown Tour

    The Lousy Tour is an entertaining walking tour that incorporates points of interest for history, architecture, flora & fauna and culture in a fun and humorous way. Nothing is taken too seriously and SK, your hilarious guide, often makes guests his playful victims. On on this tour, you'll not only pass under the Chinatown Gate, but you will also pass by many other tour guides so you'll at least get to hear a few bits of quality information before SK starts in with his interpretation of history (he sure knows a lot about 19th century brothels). You'll see the historic Donaldina Cameron House (ask about the brothel connection), and walk down Waverly Place -- i.e. The Street of Painted Balconies -- where you can get a feel for the real Chinatown, both in its present state and through history. Get a real taste of authentic Chinatown as you enter the oldest Chinese Temple in the US, and sample exotic teas (and not so exotic fortune cookies) from the original Golden Gate Fortune Cookie Factory. To change up the pace, after a brief stop at the Old Telephone Exchange, you'll learn the earliest history of San Francisco at Portsmouth Square. Bring your sense of humor, this tour is a unique and bitingly sassy take on SF history you don’t want to miss out on!

See remnants of the Barbary Coast like the Old Ship Saloon and Jackson Square, as well as the few historic buildings, like those at Hotaling Place that remained standing after the 1906 Earthquake and fire.

    Lousy Downtown Tour

    Sure, there's a bunch of walking tours that you can take from Lotta's Fountain to Maiden Lane to Union Square. But how many tour guides try to trip you along the way? SK will -- SK Morton, your hilarious tour guide that is -- and he's got a pretty good record of acquittal. The Lousy Tour is an entertaining walking tour that incorporates points of interest for history, architecture, flora & fauna and culture in a fun and humorous way. Nothing is taken too seriously and SK often makes guests his playful victims. Once you settle into your recommended Stockholm Syndrome you may just get to see the city skyline from a rooftop garden on Market Street, tour the only Frank Lloyd Wright designed building in San Francisco, examine, up close and personal, a monumental work by famed artist Ruth Asawa, and pass through the gates of Chinatown on your way to Old St. Mary's park and church. And if you're good, maybe have a bite and a pint at the Irish Bank...maybe.
