“Great Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

Great way to see San Fransisco. Our tour guides were great. A Money"" was a great tour guide. He had a great knowledge of the area. Our bus was full of Aussie tourists and he even put a touch of Australia in the tour.
Saw all the major sights and happily recommend it to anyone.
Tip if doing the tour in the cooler months wear some warm clothes.

“Just go with the flow and have fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

Being reserved English types we just let ourself be swept along by the exuberance of our host Eric and had a great time on this trip. Not for the shy and retiring but really, really good fun. Just make sure you can cope with bad jokes and puns.

“Highlight of our San Francisco Trip!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

We can't rave enough about the incredible experience we had with Urban Safari. My wife and I began our retirement trip with three nights in San Francisco, and booked the Muir Woods/Sausalito tour. While we hoped for a good time, we never expected it to be the amazing experience that it was. We adored our guide, Sandy! She absolutely made it the best part of the entire SF experience.

Sandy met us at our hotel, and the tour began with hugs. We were hooked! Her sweet demeanor, vibrant personality, and endless knowledge immediately made us fast friends. We enjoyed every minute with her, and in fact, felt very saddened when we had to part ways at the end. We loved walking through the woods in the morning, and experiencing the awe of standing among trees thousands of years old. Majestic! We had a bite back at the lodge before heading towards Sausalito, and even made a few detours along the way which were a real treat.

The personalized, intimate tour was better than anything we could have expected, and we can't thank Sandy enough for making it so special for us (Sandy, if you read this,we're going to go back to SF again next November, and we will be calling to meet up with you again!).

We'll be planning to do another Urban Safari tour next year when we return. I'd urge anyone to use this company. You won't be disapppointed. Dan, who runs this company (spoke to him on the phone when we actually called afterwards just to thank them for a great day), does an amazing job, and truly cares about making the best experience for their customers. Urban Safari is the best!

“Great Customer Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013

We were so excited about taking a tour with this company to Al caltraz. . We didn't get to make it due to deaths in our family. (which we contacted travel agent straight away) Unfortunately we booked through Flight Centre in Brisbane Australia. If we booked direct with company we would of received our money back and they could of assisted. Do your self a favour . Book this tour in advance and do it on the Internet don't go through Flight centre. We cancelled 14 days in advance and wanted to rescheduled. Flight centre took our money happily and didn't rein-burst. And did not rebook äs was booked out . Tour looks fantastic have fun. (i contacted company direct by email when i was able to and they rang me personally and left a message of sympathy regarding our loss it was lovely to receive that.)

“Just good fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2013

we were fortunate enough to experience The Urban Safari tour of San Francisco. A money and Rostafarian were fantastic and made the tour far more than just a look at that on the left and look at that on the right type of tour. If was funny, well organised and punctual. We would encourage anyone going to San Francisco to do the Urban Safari tour. We certainly look forward to doing it again.
