Serial killers. Political assassinations. Cults. Satan worshipers. Fratricide. Golden Gate Bridge jumpers...these are the stories the tourism business wants to keep quiet. Starting at City Hall, the site of an infamous 1978 double murder, we proceed to the home where Charles Manson lived while forming his murderous “Family”. Then we drive to the “Russian Embassy”, where Anton LaVey (founder of the Church of Satan) and Kenneth Anger made their bizarre occult films. The former site of the Peoples Temple cult is next, then the headquarters of the 'Death Angels'. We view the spot where the Zodiac Killer murdered his final victim, then we park under the Golden Gate Bridge to contemplate how it became the world's most popular suicide destination. Serial killer Richard Ramirez, "The Night Stalker", committed his first murder in San Francisco and we'll see where it happened. Just down the street is the theater where the Mitchell Brothers started their porn empire before one killed the other. The tour then returns to City Hall. Between sites, I will tell you about: The Summer of Love and its tragic aftermath The disappearance of Kristen Modafferi The Hell’s Angels and Altamont The Trailside Killer You'll also have iPads to view related photos and video clips on the dedicated website I’ve created. THIS EXPERIENCE IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART
As a history aficionado, true-crime student, and San Franciscan for 26 years, I have long been fascinated with The City’s more notorious events. Having read countless books on these subjects, I enjoy sharing what I’ve learned. When I host out-of-town guests, I recommend they see the regular tourist attractions such as Coit Tower, Lombard Street, and Union Square…but after they’ve checked those off, I show them the bank Patricia Hearst robbed, the site of a murder committed by the Zodiac Killer, and Charles Manson’s former home. My years as a professional guide have polished my approach to sharing a large volume of information in an interactive, fun way while maintaining a safe and professional experience. I launched my first Airbnb Experience, Discover San Francisco Movie Magic, a year ago and it has been successful from the start.
