It was the most different and entertaining tour with one of the best tour guides we have had while on our 6.5 trip. Eric provided a very informative narration during the tour and always tried to involve... More

My partner and I went on this tour on 10/10/14. Our tour guide was Per and he was amazing! They offer safari hats and blankets, as it is an open bus and for people not used to the SanFran climate, was very chilly. Per pointed out so many things and facts the whole tour, he was like a walking pamphlet!... More

We chose to do the Urban Safari Wine Tour to Sonoma. This was one of the best tours I have done. From Champagne and croissants at Golden Gate bridge to start, to walks through amazing gardens, picking up figs from a roadside stall, and eating them with cheese tasting in Sonoma, to blending our own wines, wine tasting at 3...

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
