I’m a tour guide, journalist, historian, California native, and resident of San Francisco. Emperor Norton’s Fantastic San Francisco Time Machine launched in July 2011 to rave reviews. I can often be spotted about town in character as San Francisco’s beloved Emperor Norton.

When we booked this experience I laughed and goofed about it to people - I thought it was just going to be silly and fun to walk around with a crazy costumed fella in San Francisco. And it was! But it was so much more. The Emperor was a real guy in the history of SF and our guide is acting and dressing as him in loving homage to the original. We learn about his history and what drove him to his "madness" and how the city embraced him and how he influenced so many things. We also learn about the general history of the city and some other influential characters and sites. It was truly fascinating. And, just as they did way back, the locals all hailed Emperor Norton - including a fire truck driving by randomly. It felt like we were hob-nobbing with royalty!

Sehr schöne Tour und ein sehr besonderer Führer. Man bekommt viele interessante Informationen, die in keinem Stadtführer stehen, und erlebt durch die Perspektve des 'Emperor Norton' direkt etwas von der besonderen Atmosphäre von Ssn Francisco - des 19. Jhts wie des heutigen. Sehr empfehlenswert!

My walking tour with “Emperor Norton” was fun, unusually interesting, and educational! Lots of tips for future sightseeing. Very professional with a grandeur and ‘quirkiness’ not available on most other tours. Well worth the money and a great experience!

I’d recommend to everyone! The emperor absolutely knows what he’s talking about and is very good at what he does, you can tell he’s done extensive research on everything he teaches throughout the tour. The character he played was so fun to learn from, as opposed to a monotone museum tour guide, and he made learning history about the city very engaging. I’d love to take another tour of his next time we visit!
