We had the teenagers be on one team and the adults/younger kids on the other. The teenagers won and had so much fun exploring San Francisco. Great activity tondo with kids and see the city. Unfortunately we didn't have enough time to finish because the teenagers finished at least an hour before us. Have fun

This was a great way to see the city. It made it fun for my 12 year old to walk everywhere. She loved the little facts and we went down many streets we would have just passed up. Fun start to a trip.

Myself, my daughter and friend went and did the food and street art tour in the Mission area. We had a fantastic guide, Suzy who had amazing knowledge and insight into this area, it's culture, food and the wonderful street art (this isn't graffiti as we know it!) and walked us leisurely around the area for about 3hrs. She introduced... More

I booked a private tour with SF Urban Adventures based on the awesome reviews I read on the internet. I requested a unique tour that blended some of their standard tours with an age appropriate twist based on my three kids' interests (ages 12-14). The tour was not only well priced but our tour guide Tiprin exceeded ALL of our... More

We were able to have a relaxing and enlightening evening exploring Northbeach with our Guide Jim. I was impressed with his calm yet passionate narrations of the city at large. He booked a fine eating establishment known as Mona Lisa, where we chowed down on family style Italian cuisine.

Had a half day open from my conference and decided to try the China town tour. It was fantastic! My guide, Suzy, was knowledgable and fun and made the whole experience wonderful. This tour was both fun and interesting and balanced experiences of the widely known tourist stops with the more authentic lesser known stops. I would highly recommend it.

Amazing walking tour led by Suzie. Very informative and diverse. Started at the Golden Gate Bridge, walked along the cliffs, down to the beach, through a superb neighborhood, a great trail through the trees and past the Sutro baths and on to the Cliff House. Would definitely do it again and recommend it to friends.
