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

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
