Nice touch as he greeted us all and had all our names correct at the start of the tour. We followed a great... More

Ugh - what a horrifying experience. The locals seem to loathe this business and its humiliating to be on a painted bus where everyone is glaring at you. The safety of the driving was suspect and the incessant chatter of the "guides" was awful - almost no knowledge of San Francisco. We had high hopes based on the reviews but... More

We had the best day on this tour. Our guide was great, so funny and full of knowledge. The tour takes you all over the city in the morning, then after lunch we were dropped off to go to Alcatraz. Our tickets to Alcatraz were included with this tour. The tour finished once we were dropped off to go to... More

We tried a bunch of new experiences including wine blending which was great fun. Eric took a really flexible approach to the day and tailored the trip to meet our specific... More

The Urban Safari in San Francisco was unbelievable. What a great day had by all. Eric, our guide, took us to some spots that we otherwise would not have seen. We took some great shots from Twin Peaks and had a lovely lunch at a City cafe. The tour also included our trip to Alcatraz which again was fantastic. Would... More

Urban Safari from the first minute to the last minute of the four hour tour was interesting, informative & so much fun. Our tour guide, Daniel, showed an infectious enthusiasm & passion for the tour & this city that made it impossible not to enjoy it. My husband, myself & our 3 adult children have not stopped talking about it.... More

We purchased the SF Urban Safari (without Alcatraz) on Groupon hoping for a fun and educational tour of the city... Urban Safari exceeded our expectations. Unlike many of the other tour groups, our guide picked us up straight from the hotel for our departure. As SF newbies, this saved us a HUGE hassle trying to navigate transportation to find the...
