This is the second time I have done this trip through San Francisco with Urban Safari. What can I say, it's the only way to see San Fran and have some fun at the same time. They take you to all the touristy places in the comfort of their safari truck. Naomi and Mfalme were great hosts and kept us... More

When you get picked up you have a safari hat and a blanket on your seat as it is an open vehicle. You are taken around different highlights and stop for lunch where you can buy your lunch. You go to a fantastic lookout where you get an amazing view all around the city. The tour finishes at the wharf... More

This is a pricier city tour but worth it for the personalized service. The 3 of us joined 8 others to go all over the city, making some stops. Eric was a fantastic guide.

Right from the start our guide Eric ( who by the way reminded us all of Dr Sheldon Cooper) created an amazing atmosphere. He was was fortunate enough to have a group of Aussies aboard and we were all blown away with our tour. Right from the start we were given the most amazing tour through the different districts of...

Lunch stop was at a great little spot where nice fresh food was available - it was my birthday a few... More

What a great Day. A small truck (Ute to us Aussies) with 9 guests and Dan in the back with us. Crazy from the start. I wont mention the offer made to me when I confirmed the trip but it was appreciated lol. The free flowing tour which criss-crossed back and forward across San Francisco allowed us to see more...
