GET OFF THE TOUR BUS & URBAN TREK WITH US! 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 (private) urban trek for a party of four or more.

Anton provided a very friendly, fun, flexible and custom way to see San Francisco. We had two children (aged 9 and 7) and a senior as part of our group and Anton ensured they were really well looked after. Can't recommend Anton enough!

My mom and I joined Anton for urban trek 2 and we were not disappointed. We were only in SF for a short time and this was a great way to see several sights and beautiful views. Anton was very knowledgeable of the city, sights, restaurants and public transit. We corresponded for several weeks in regards to the trek where... More

We joined Anton for the Urban Trek 2 which took us to the steepest street, the most crooked street, Pacific Heights, and the Golden Gate Bridge, as well as several other places. Anton was very organized, and he obviously loves San Francisco. We learned many facts about the city, and he helped us to understand the transportation system as well.... More

My wife and I went on Trek 4 and Anton was a great host and guide. Despite living in the Bay Area for 4 years, He took us to many places I had never been. This Trek covered SF history from early settlers through the gold rush, depression and build up during the 20th century - it also gets you... More

Anton took our family of 6 all over the city and we were able to see so much it's hard to list here! He is so knowledgeable about the city and so friendly, this tour is perfect for seeing spots you can not see from a bus! Anton showed us "his city" and we were glad to have done so!... More

Anton is an extremely knowledgeable guide and is very generous in sharing his information, including tips about great eateries, things to do etc. There were just 2 of us and him so we had his undivided attention. There was a good amount of walking in that it felt like exercise but not overly exerting as we paused often and had... More

He has a deep knowledge of both the history and current state of the city, and presents all of this information in a very organized and enjoyable way. The tour was extremely well paced, with rest spots and restrooms... More

We had time for only one tour in San Francisco and I'm so glad we chose Urban Trek! We took Tour 4, winding our way through Chinatown and Little Italy and the history (large and small) of San Francisco. Anton is not only very knowledgeable about SF, he is very organized in his presentation. His binder stores old photographs that... More

Our tour focused on the northeastern quarter of the city and lasted almost 7.5 hours. Anton gave us a running narrative on the history of the city as we visited landmarks and neighborhoods in the area. He was well-prepared and personable. He also gave me good tips on restaurants and suggestions on visiting other attractions in the city. I highly... More

We met Anton exactly when and where he said to meet. No problems meeting up. The tour was great, we saw and went to so many places! He was very informative and a great guide.

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
