Do I need to book in advance?
We highly recommend making your reservations in advance as we allow a limited number of people to participate on each tour. Space permitting we will accept on-site payment for the tour.
Where do I find parking?
We recommend parking in the garage at 614 Market Street. For other parking options please visit: http://parkdowntownsd.com.Please note parking in the Gaslamp Quarter is limited and is not free! Be sure to arrive early enough to give yourself plenty of time to find parking or you may want to ride the Trolley. This event is downtown so you may want to check to see if there are other events going on that would require additional time for parking. Our tours start promptly at the designated start time and we reserve the right to scalp your tickets if you don’t arrive on time.
Where do I check In?
You will meet your Lead Detective at Henry’s Pub, 618 5th Ave, San Diego CA 92101. He or She will be near the door marked 614.
Is this tour appropriate for kids?
Tour Rating: PG13. Please note due to the graphic nature of these murder cases we advise extreme caution for children under 13. This tour includes discussion of assault, rape and murder; along with gruesome details that some may find offensive. Children under the age 13 are allowed to attend with parental supervision. If you are looking for a tour that is specifically kid friendly please check out our pirate themed Seaport Village Tour.
What is your cancellation policy?
All sales are final and non-refundable.
What if it rains?
The tour will go on in a light rain. We highly suggest you bring an umbrella or borrow a trash bag from a local business. (They make decent ponchos.) In the case of a downpour we will cancel. If this happens we will contact you and see if you would like to reschedule for a future date or if you prefer a refund. We will call you at least 2 hours before the event if it is cancelled due to the weather.
Is this a sightseeing tour?
Yes. You will see several of the popular sights around The Gaslamp Quarter. History, architecture and murder are just a few of the things that you may find interesting along the way.
Is this a theatrical production?
No, while the murders and locations you stop at are very real, we do not re-enact any of the crime scenes. (You are more than welcome to though.)
Do I need to bring anything with me?
Nope. We do suggest you wear comfortable walking shoes as you will be walking a little over a mile in 1 hour.
