Check Ticket Availability

Take a tour through San Francisco's history with one of its most colorful characters. Emperor Norton was a prominent businessman who lost it all on a bad investment. He responded to his failure by declaring himself "Emperor of the United States and Protector of Mexico." Rather than dismissing him, San Francisco embraced him, treating him as royalty and accepting his self-created currency. Tour guide Joseph Amster incorporates his journalistic and acting talents to provide a one-of-a-kind tour, taking on the persona of Emperor Norton and introducing you to the history of the city's most unique and interesting sites through the eyes of this larger-than-life unofficial city mascot.
