Enjoy a special one of a kind tour with Countess Lola Montez, (aka tour guide & San Francisco resident Rick Shelton). This walking tour gives a historic, fun, perspective through the eyes of the infamous Countess Lola Montez. The tour lasts approximately 2.5 hours and is approximately two miles of easy walking.
Lola will show you her favorite spots, places she entertained, and share with you parts of her life that many have never known. Life is still on the streets of San Francisco, but with Lola history is alive. Hear stories of the Barbary Coast and what the neighborhood was like. Lola will take you on a walk through the present streets, but hear and see what was. San Francisco was rich in more than gold. Many came to San Francisco to "start over" to follow their dreams. The common met the exotic. Fortunes lost, kings dethroned, leaving many in the newly guttered streets of San Francisco with broken hearts and empty purses, others... the end of the rainbow with more than their wildest dreams. Come spend some time with Lola, listen, learn, weep, laugh, and enjoy! A different type of tour! Make it something different.
