This is by far one of the best tours I have ever been on. Right from the beginning our tour guide, Eric, made an effort to make everyone feel comfortable, and has us laughing and singing the entire time! As we were in the smaller vehicle, with only 6 other guests we were able to go to a lot of... More

Urban Safari never ceases to amaze, I have been on two tours with them in the last couple of years and have never had short of an amazing time. First trip with them was the San Francisco city tour on their big zebra bus, so much fun (even though everyone stares at you wearing your safari hats and animal print... More

The 5 Star rating is for the awesome person, "Sandy" who answered the phone when I called today to make reservations for a holiday SF tour. She knows her stuff!!! Answered every single question I had patiently. And best of all....she is really, really... More

Everything about this tour was first rate. The guide and driver really made an effort to make everyone feel welcome and part of a fun group. Th y even found out we were getting married and made an announcement. The itinerary was comprehensive and not boring at all. Something for everyone. Thanks for a great tour!

Our family of four, mum dad with older teenage girls,were taken a little aback when the big "zebra" bus arrived to pick us up. Naomi, our guide, stepped out and personally introduced herself to all passengers. The Tour took us to lovely monuments, the Golden Gate Bridge, a lookout over the city and through the streets of San Fransisco with... More

Great tour, took us to places we expected plus lots of extras. Great flexibility with such a small group. Eric was punctual and knew his stuff about the area and even dropped us off where we wanted at the end.. Definitely recommended this tour

Our family of five did a San Francisco Urban Safari with our tour guide Eric (Woody from Toy Story) and Bob the driver. 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
