GET OFF THE TOUR BUS & URBAN TREK WITH US! Urban Trek USA's - small group (maximum of 7 people)- urban trek is an EXPERIENCE better than being aboard a tour bus or shuttle. An urban trek is a sightseeing & walking tour experience where you will use the city's public transportation system and walk around and learn about the different neighborhoods, see great views around the city, and 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 (private) urban trek for a party of four or more.

I and my husband really enjoyed the trek 4 together with Anton. A great way to get some of the history and its connection with San Fransisco of today. Anton is a very knowledgable and professional guide.

Anton was awesome. I had never been to San Francisco and this tour was amazing. The knowledge/history that was shared blew me away. I am definitely scheduling a tour on my next visit!

Anton is simply the best! I scheduled this tour as part of a girls' weekend where most of our group had not been or had very limited experience in San Francisco. It was unanimously the highlight of our trip. We took Urban Trek #4 which is historical San Francisco. Anton is very knowledgeable and his personality, pace, itinerary, organization, and... More

This trek was awesome! The pace was wonderful and we had a group total of 5 persons seeing Russian Hill, Palace of Fine Arts, the Golden Gate Bridge and Crissy Field. Anton was helpful and provided delightful insights into the wonderful city. He is well-organized, knowledgeable, gracious, mindful, great fun to hang with and showed a love of his city... More

Scheduling a tour with Anton was my best decision to learn about and experience San Francisco! Anton is extremely knowledgeable and personable. He is a wealth of information and, a big bonus, a foodie with lots of wonderful suggestions that made my experience even better. Even after tour time with Anton he is available for help and suggestions to make... More

We have visited San Francisco several times but wanted to get a deeper look. We took Urban trek 1 which included China Town, Pacific Heights, Cow Hollow, North Beach and others. Since we were the only people on the tour that day, Anton suggested we skip the Ferry Building which we had already seen and visit Hayes Valley instead. That... More

I can definitely tell that it was the best tour me and my husband have ever had and we've had a few. It was the most memorable experience of our US trip. Anton takes extra great care of everyone and his joyful attitude towards everything he does makes even a gloomy day in San Francisco into one of the best... More

If you want an informative, fun tour of San Francisco...Urban Trek is hands down the best choice. It's been a few years since we took our tour, (the drop down menu only goes back to Nov.'14, we took our tour in June 2011) but we're planning another visit to the city by the bay....and can't wait for another tour with...

I found Anton's details on Trip Advisor. Anton briefs you fully by email ahead of the tour and we met as arranged. The walking tour on the Friday Sept 25th was just fantastic. I was thoroughly impressed by his knowledge of San Francisco, the tour was both interesting and informative. There is nothing he doesn't know about SF. Although an... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
As the oldest in North America, San Francisco's Chinatown is an exotic experience. A unique neighborhood decorated with colorful shops, historic streetlights, hanging lanterns, and pagoda roofs awaits behind the stone-carved dragon gates. Feast on dim sum at the tea houses, or meet the locals who gather at historic Portsmouth Square to play chess or practice Tai Chi. Fish markets, produce stands, tourist shops, jewelry stores, fortune tellers, temples and restaurants come together to create a world unto itself in this historic neighborhood.
