      I took this tour with my daughter hoping to find out about Haight Ashbury’s colorful and interesting history, so we were very disappointed to hear so much about “synesthesia.” I had found the perfect Haight Ashbury audio tour about a couple of months earlier and waited to purchase it when we knew we had time to do the tour. Unfortunately, I picked the wrong one that focused on synesthesia, rather than a tour strictly on historical Haight Ashbury. I can’t really fault the guide because the tour was clearly labeled “Synesthesia,” which I had no idea what that was and only focused on the Haight Ashbury title. My daughter and I ended up quitting the tour after about 30 minutes because we couldn’t ignore the synesthesia parts any longer. Thank goodness the tour only cost $5 or else we would have tried to get a refund. I felt bad for my daughter who was so looking forward to this tour, and would have gone back to Haight Ashbury for the correct tour if we had the time.
