Owner description: 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 urban trek for a party of four or more.

Anton's tour was both informative and entertaining. He is very organized and filled with knowledge and facts we would never have gained on our own. We saw so many things we could never have seen without the tour. Anton made sure we understood the public transportation system so we could get around to see more after the tour was over.... More

Anton was great - detailed, knowledgable and entertaining. He was prompt and was very conscience of safety. We told him that we wanted to go see the Full House house after the tour, and he went above and beyond to help us find our way there. The price for the tour was reasonable given that it was almost an all... More

My husband and I took the Sunday morning Urban Trek #4 tour of San Francisco during our very short stay in the city last month. Our tour with Anton was informative and lots of fun! We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and look forward to additional Urban Trek tours with Anton in the future!

I haven't been to San Francisco for nearly 20 years but Anton made the day a great experience. The insight he gives you into the city can ony come from his time living in the city. Even though the tour finished with lunch by the pier, Anton kindly offered to show me more of the city in the afternoon. I... More

This was a great way to learn about the city. I recommend doing this on the first day like other reviewers as it made our next two days more enjoyable with all of the information that Anton shared. He really loves helping people get the best experience possible. The additional items he provided went above and beyond like listing of... More

I was on Trek #2. I was the only one signed up and I was thrilled that Anton did not cancel it. Hard to believe that he did a private tour at such an affordable price. I enjoyed everything about the tour including all the great information, pictures and even some great pics and videos from his phone! I especially... More

SF is a city you better explore without driving a car: save money and time looking for a place to park and enjoy delicious walks trough the so many beautiful places the city has. But then you must know how to use the good local transport system. Knowing that, Anton, Urban Trek's owner and guide, starts the tour with an... More

We took the Urban Trek #1 walking / riding tour. This tour covers the Embarkadero, the Ferry Building, Chinatown, Pacific Heights, etc. Anton (owner and tour guide) went out of his way to point things out to us at every part of the tour. This was a good way of getting a good first-hand understanding of the city. I would... More

We were a group of 4 tourists, ranging in age from 40-80 and this walking tour worked very well on our first day in this city. Anton knows everything you want to know about the city and gives a page of detailed written information which is really helpful for planning the rest of your stay. We liked the pace, the... More

Rather than repeat what all the reviewers say I'd just encourage anyone considering a guided tour of the city to contact Anton at Urban Trek. Don't let the time or distance of the tour put you off, the day just flies by. Highly recommended !
