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

My guide, Linda, was fantastic! This walking tour was a lot like having a backstage-all-access-pass. It is a great tour for independent, active people. This tour is not for people who want to ride a bus and glide though – it is for people who want to be down in the city. The tour deepened my knowledge and appreciation of... More

It was a walking tour with the lot...starting at the Golden Gate Bridge we then went past WWII relics, had a stroll on a beautiful beach, then through an upmarket neighbourhood to... More

My sister, aunt and I booked the breakfast/mural tour. Our tour guide was Claire. She was very knowledgeable and very entertaining. We stopped at some great restaurants that a visitor wouldn't normally find. It allowed us to really get a feel for the Mission District. Learning about all the mural art was very interesting and there were some great picture... More

My husband and I booked a pub crawl on a Thursday night in North Beach. Our tour guide, Susan Abbott, a.k.a. Susy, was an absolute treat. Her bright disposition and knowledge of the area entertained us the entire time. The pubs we visited were incredible and we never would have found them on our own. We even had a Carol... More

We've lived in San Francisco for 7 years and thought it would be fun to experience being a tourist in our own town . We took the North beach Pub Tour with Claire and some out-of-town friends. I was surprised at how many hidden gems existed in the city that I walked right past without even realizing. She was a... More

I would just like to say that the mission murals and meals tour, is awesome! We met our guide, Claire, in front of a really nice coffee shop and we're treated to delicious doughnuts. Then we proceeded through some of the best foods and street art the city has to offer. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone! (Make sure... More
