I went on an urban adventure with Suzy, she was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. I learned a lot about china town and north beach and saw some awesome sights. My favorite part was the tea tasting! If you go to the temple in china town then get your fortune done!

Flavors and Murals of the Mission was my first tour with Urban Adventures. Started in Dynamo Donuts with delicious coffee and great stylish unpretentious atmosphere. Good place for meeting point.:-)) Then came Linda, my guide. Because I was alone that day, who ordered this tour, she was my private guide. I have to appreciate Urban Adventures too much that my...

Loved the locations—got a great feel for the San Fransisco area. Went to an excellet teashop with tea-tasting included and a Chinese temple in Chinatown and on to the Barbary Coast. Our guide Mike was very well prepared and knew a lot about the area. Our group was too big to go into the fortune-cookie factory, which was a bummer,... More

I have traveled multiple times with Urban Adventures in various other locations. Urban Adventures has always offered me an excellent experience, San Francisco was no different! I contacted them about a combination of 3 tours in one day and received a quick response from Amanda. She had everything set up and arranged quickly. I did the Flavors and Murals of... More

On our recent trip to San Francisco, my girlfriend and I went on the "Flavors and Murals of the Mission" tour. It was awesome. Our tour guide, Claire, was enthusiastic and knowledgable about the area. She took time to explain all of the beautiful murals and answer any questions we had, whether it was about the tour or just the... More

Christian Tong made my trip. I did two tours with UA and both of them with Christian. We started a beautiful Sunday morning at 9.30 with the 'Food & Murals of the Mission' tour. This tour, it's unique blend of street art and local flavours, and, of course, Christian, made it the most enjoyable and, most importantly, inspiring tour I've... More

We took this tour with Christian as our guide, and had a wonderful afternoon with him. Tour included bridge history and construction, then we headed off on a trail along the coast down to the beach, thru a residential district, past trees, and all the time wonderful views. Christian was a fund of info and we really enjoyed his company.... More

I took a group of friends on the North Beach Pub Crawl the other night led by Tiprin and Sam. Even with a large group of us, the guides were organized and professional. They kept the group together and engaged with fun, local information and everyone had a blast! The next day, a smaller group went on their city tour... More
