Join Murder n’ Mayhem for a Historical True Crime Tour of the Gaslamp Quarter in downtown San Diego. You will walk through several eras in time as you explore interesting stories of true crime. You will also learn the darker history of the Gaslamp Quarter, the area formerly known as the Stingaree.
Learn about how downtown San Diego first came to be and then the era of the Stingaree. You will visit a historic hotel where a ghost is said to STILL haunt his room. Then you will travel in time to the roaring 1920’s. Next you will move forward a little over 10 years to become familiar with the 3rd victim of a San Diego Serial Killer. And last, we will share one of the most horrific crimes to take place in modern downtown San Diego.
* 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.

We learned a lot about San Diego's history of the Gaslamp. Didn't realize how many murders and brothels were a part of San Diego's history. Along with the history of Balboa Park. We had a great your guide and he was very informative. We would recommend this tour.

Our guide, RT, was very knowledgeable. He had a lot of history and interesting facts. I wish the tour had more true crime facts but it was interesting history on the Historic Gaslamp District.
