Claire was a great guide. She was very friendly and very passionate about the artwork, the neighborhood, and the city in general. The stops for food were great. Dynamo Donuts were delicious and there was even a gluten free option. The murals in the Mission certainly keep your attention as you stroll through the neighborhood and it feels very safe.... More

Had a great time with Claire on the Pub Crawl Tour in North Beach! Claire was a wealth of information regarding the history of the area and local establishments. She was easy to chat with and had an answer for every question we asked! Loved the little dive bars she took us to. Definitely not your hipster bars., these places... More

Dear bbbunch04, It's great to hear you had a great time with Claire. We're very proud to have her as a member of our family. As for the dive bars, you've only scratched the surface, next time you're back in the city we would love to show you a few more memorable places. Even some of the hipster bars are... More

UA is not a typical tour company. Groups are small and intimate for a better experience with less shouting and more connections. We went on the murals and food tour thru the mission and Ross was an excellent guide, very friendly and knowledgable. It didn't phase him when the taqueria he'd planned to take us too wasn't open on time-... More

Dear Trevor T, Thank you for joining us! We are also glad our group sizes are small, it gives us a chance to personalize the tour and really get to know everyone. Our goal is to make everyone feel as if old friends were showing you around town. We're sorry the taqueria was closed, it's extremely rare for them to... More

I took both a tour of the Mission and Chinatown. Our guide, Claire, killed it. She was exceptionally knowledgeable about all the locations and was happy to answer all of our questions. She was very approachable and entertaining. I would highly recommend both of the tours to anyone.

I did the North Beach Walking Pub Tour on a Friday night. There was supposed to be another three people on the tour that evening but they all cancelled at the last minute. That meant that the guide (Claire) was stuck showing me around for a few hours. She did a great job at selecting interesting places to go to,... More

Fantastic little tour - Claire really brought the history of the Mission and the inspiration for the artworks to life. Stopping in at little cafés only added to the experience - was very full by the end of it :) Top marks Claire and Urban Adventures!

My dad pointed out this tour. I didn't hear of this company before but I decided to just do it. I ended up being the only one taking the tour which was fine. The tour guide Claire was very energetic and was eager to tell everything she knew about the Chinatown. All in all a great experience.

Arrived in San Francisco recently on a Wednesday afternoon and first on the tour list for the week was the North Beach Pub Crawl. Even though I had been on the same tour last year with a very small group, the tour never gets old because whomever guides your tour has their own way of doing and seeing things. This... More
