GQHF offers many tours for our guests: from architectural and historical Children’s Tours, to Gaslamp Quarter Walking Tours, to tours of the Davis-Horton House, and to Ghost Tours and Paranormal Investigations.

All tours begin or take place at the Davis-Horton House, 410 Island Avenue (at the corner of Fourth and Island Avenue, between Fourth and Fifth Avenue, one block south of Market Street in the Gaslamp).
There are NO REFUNDS.
