Urban Trek USA's goal is to provide visitors the BEST & IN-DEPTH EXPERIENCE, better than being aboard a tour bus or shuttle, by taking visitors to some famous places (views) and not too famous places (only known to locals) and providing historical and more current information about them so visitors will get a good sense of what is special about each neighborhood. An urban trek is a sightseeing and walking tour experience where you will use the city's public transportation system and walk around because that is the best way to experience the city. Visitors will have lunch or a coffee break at the best places in the neighborhood. You will feel almost like a local San Franciscan after your urban trek. Check the customized urban trek for a party of four or more. « less

Great way to get a taste of the city and sample the sites around the neighborhoods. There isn't time on the tour to spend a lot of time in any one place, but if you take this tour at the beginning of your stay, you can go back to those spots you would like to explore deeper.

This was my third trip to San Francisco, and I have been to a fair number of the museums and read about some of the major historical events of this city. I thought this might detract from the tour, as a lot of it would be repeated. I was wrong! Anton really brings it to life, and give so much... More

Believe all the amazing reviews you read for this tour! You will get to know San Francisco in a way most visitors never will. After all the info, including how to navigate public transportation, you feel almost like a local. Anton has prepared an experience like no other. The history of the city and the people, complete with historical photos... More

We got to experience a little bit of everything on our tour! Walked the Golden Gate Bridge, ate at a wonderful little fish place, rode on the subway and the bus....so much more of an intimate experience when you are walking with a guide who was so friendly, knowledgeable and affordable! Loved every Minute!! Thank you so much Anton!

This is the kind of tour I love. It was a small, intimate group led by a very knowledgeable tour guide, Anton. This was a fantastic way to see & learn about so many areas of the city. This tour is fairly fast paced, covering a lot of ground. I felt like I saw areas that the typical tour would... More

I traditionally do a hop on hop off tour to any new city that I visit. This time I also did Urban Trek. Hands down this is the way to go. Save your money--do Urban Trek only...but wear your runners. Nicely paced; variety of information points; time to snap pics and get a refreshment; route well planned; highly knowledgeable; professional;... More

We booked this walking tour based on previous Trip Advisor reviews and what a great decision! We were only in San Francisco for two and a half full days so thought this full day tour would enable us to get our bearings and see as much as we could of this fantastic city. Anton was friendly, professional and knowledgeable and... More

Anton did an amazing job. I had seen the numerous positive reviews but was still a little unsure that we would want to spend the entire day on a walking tour. The time went so quickly because Anton did such a great job of keeping us engaged and moving along quickly. If we had done this the first day we... More

We booked a private tour with Anton for our family of 4 which includes two kids ages 9 and 11. It was their first visit to SF and we wanted them to have a good overview of the city. My husband also wanted plenty of photo taking opportunities, especially of the Golden Gate Bridge. We looked at the photos on... More
