Fee: Yes
Owner description: 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.

“The perfect way to see San Francisco!”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

This is the perfect way to get a feel for any big city, but especially San Francisco...with a "native" who lives there and can really give an insight into what the City is all about. My husband and I took Anton's Trek #4, which is historical in nature. Anton is very knowledgeable about his subject and obviously enjoys what he is doing. We not only got a history of the various areas we visited, we got interesting and amusing stories about some of the places and characters in the City. Anton also provided info on what to wear and ways to stay safe, along with his recommendations for restaurants and a much appreciated overview of how to get around using public transportation. His tour was well thought out and comprehensive and we enjoyed it immensely!

“A wonderful day with Antonio”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Have just spent a brilliant and informative day on a city tour with Anton. Maximum group of seven so we were able to hear everything he was saying. The tour included using the metro at the start of the tour and buses between the districts where we walked and walked - all linked together beautifully so we didn't have to spend time waiting around. Anton is so knowledgeable about his city and a delight to listen too. I can thoroughly recommend this tour.

“Our Amazing San Francisco Trek”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

I cannot recommend this tour enough! My husband and I went with our daughter and boyfriend. We are from Minnesota and they came up from LA. It was their first day here. Anton is great. So knowledgeable and also compassionate. Really wants you to enjoy his city. He gave us such confidence with the Muni system that the next day we tackled the Muni from Union Square to the Golden Gate Bridge. Anton also keeps the groups small so it is a very intimate tour, great opportunities for photos too. If you are coming to San Francisco don't miss this great opportunity to fall in love with the Heart of San Francisco.

“Great way to see the city!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

WOW! What a great way to see San Francisco, by the end of it I felt so knowledgeable about the city and history -- it left me wanting to stay in SF longer to continue to explore this great city! In just 6 hours we were able to see so much -- including union square, chinatown, pacific heights, cow hollow and north beach (not to mention the ferry building)! It was such a great way to see the different sections of SF and their importance to the city!! Throughout our tour Anton was able to give us recommendations for places to go, eat and stay in SF, unfortunately we were leaving that night -- however we are already planning our next trip back!

“A great way to get to know San Francisco”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

I cannot recommend this way of getting to know San Francisco highly enough. We took the Urban Trek 2 on the second day of our week long first time stay in San Francisco and it made a big difference in our enjoyment of the remainder of our trip. Anton's knowledge of and passion for the city was amazing, and he is also just a super nice, easy to be with person. We learned how to use the public transportation in the city and rode the subway, buses and trolley. When Anton found our that we were staying north of the Golden Gate Bridge, he made the suggestion that we change up the scheduled tour to omit the bridge, since we were already familiar with it, and add some other sights that are not normally part of this trek. His concern with adapting this tour to meet our specific needs was greatly appreciated and added to our enjoyment of the day. Throughout our tour, Anton was an amazing wealth of knowledge about the city - we learned all kinds of facts that really contributed to our getting to know this wonderful city. I recommend taking a tour with Anton early in your visit to the city so that you have time to use the suggestions that he gives as well as once you complete the tour, you will feel so much more comfortable navigating around the city on your own. Bottom line - you could not find a nicer, more knowledgeable person to help you to enjoy your time in the beautiful city of San Francisco.
