I was really unwell on the day of our tour. Sandy and Daniel contacted us in our hotel to check if everything was ok and offered to reschedule the tour for us... I was really surprised and impressed by this! They really didn't want us to miss out on the urban safari. Thankyou! Eric was our tour guide, liked to... More

This was a great tour for adults and kids. It was fun, informative and would highly recommend. It was relaxed and the lunch stop was delicious.

We recently took the city tour of San Francisco, with Alcatraz at the end. Our guides were Naomi and Pear, with "King" as our driver. The tour took in all the sites we wanted, with Naomi and Pear giving excellent and funny commentary throughout the day, and King joining in from the cab. The Zebra truck is a fantastic way... More

Our guide Naomi was fun and we were super impressed with her extensive knowledge of San Francisco. The zebra bus is huge and we loved the animal print blankets and safari hats. We visited some amazing places and it was the extra attention to the little things that helped make this tour special and something we will remember fondly for... More

We were so glad that our travel agent suggested this tour. The driver and guide were very friendly and knowledgeable about the various sights we were taken to. The black & white striped vehicle attracts attention due to the foliage and bananas hanging from the roof and passengers can wear pith helmets if they wish to enhance their safari experience!...

We had been looking for a smaller tour company that could give us the "locals" tour and we are so glad we found Urban Safaris. They could not have been more helpful from beginning to end. We wanted to book on their Marin County Tour but it wasn't available on the only date we could do. It appears they pulled... More

We were greeted with your Zebra Jeep and two great guys Per and Brian. The trip from the get go was great and an axing insight to your beautiful city. Both Per and Brian were... More
