Owner description: Urban Trek USA's - small group (maximum of 7 people)- urban trek is an experience better than being aboard a tour bus or shuttle. An urban trek is a sightseeing & walking tour experience where you will use the city's public transportation system and walk around and learn about the different neighborhoods, see great views around the city, and have lunch or a coffee break at the best places in the neighborhood. You will feel almost like a local San Franciscan after your urban trek. Check the customized urban trek for a party of four or more.

“A must way to be introduced to San Francisco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Ok, first I need to apologise to Anton for taking so long to review this marvelous tour.
My wife and I booked Anton for an exclusive tour on May 20th. He carefully tailored the tour to our interests and requirements and designed an itinerary which if anything exceeded our hopes and expectations. As someone else wrote, "I can't say enough positive things about Anton and his tour. " We loved the combination of transportation methods which meant we had no problems with public transportation the rest of our stay. And I know that at our age we might not have braved even going down the Filbert steps without him.
He also took us to a great burger place, Roam Artisan Burgers (his suggestion) and Humphry Slocombe for unusual and delicious ice cream.
DId I mention his great depth of knowledge about the city? Or his fantastic timing using public transportation?
A great trip - in our case a bit over 7 hours which flew by too fast.

“Brilliant walking tour of SF”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

It was a fantastic start to our stay in SF. We did the walking tour the day after we arrived and it was the perfect day to find areas and explore them with a local with a wealth of history about the city. Anton was a great tour, with the biggest size of a tour being 7 it meant that it was a very personal tour. We learnt how to use the transportation around the city so for the rest of the week we were able to explore by ourselfs. Would recommend to anyone and its for all ages!

“The best way to discover San Francisco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Anton is a very good and knowledgeable guide. The tour was a well-balanced combination of history, interesting and/or funny stories or information, good pictures spots and practical tips. We enjoyed our day and his contribution to the following ones (by providind suggested itineraries for other neighbourhoods) is very appreciated. The price for the tour is a good value considering that you almost have a private guide for an entire day! Highly recommanded!

“Highly recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

My husband and I were on vacation in San Francisco last week and took Anton's Urban Trek tour highlighting the city. I can't say enough positive things about Anton and his tour. First, he limits his tour to seven people so that he can make it very personal and be attentive to all of the participants. During this tour, a combination of transportation is used (walking, trolley, etc.) so that you get to experience them and learn how to use them on your own. He is very knowledgeable of both SF history and the current scene. Even before and after the tour, Anton emailed maps and safety tips for traveling in the city as he found things that related to our particular interests. Well worth the cost and time!!!

“Urban trek San Francisco”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Anton was great can't say enough about his knowledge of the city, it's history and culture.
This is a trek not to miss. Enjoyed all the small out of the way streets and places we would have missed otherwise.
Lunch at the Ferry terminal was great afterwards too.
