San Francisco Urban Hike: Coit Tower, Lombard Street and North Beach

My family had a great time on this socially distanced private hike exploring the Presidio and the Golden Gate Bridge area. I never would have known how to connect these paths myself and enjoyed learning about the history of the area as well as the amazing views! It was so nice to have an activity my extended family from a few households could do together, safely.

My husband, daughter and I went on the Urban Hike and it was beyond our expectations. Kevin was our guide and gave us an insider’s view of San Francisco. We went places we would have never gone on our own and learned historical facts in the process. The hike is great exercise as we saw some awesome views and beautiful homes. Kevin is friendly, knowledgeable, and represents the company very well. Thank you!

My wife and I had an amazing time with Kevin. The hike truly delivers on their promises. It was amazing to hike through the “concrete jungle”. Kevin did such an amazing job guiding us through the city, giving us information not just on the tourist sites, but also on lesser-known places such as the different stairwells and reserves. I really appreciated how Kevin gave the history and an idea of what life was like in contemporary San Francisco. My wife and I also loved hiking through the hills and reaching places that were reaching via car or bus. The hike through the forest area was such a nice addition. Seeing the nature side of San Francisco gave us a truly complete view of the city. This hike provided more than the average tour through the tourist and lesser-seen sites; and through the amazing guidance of Kevin. I would highly suggest this tour to anyone considering it!
