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.

“I never knew that!”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Took the "Historic SF" tour from Urban Trek USA on Saturday 10/26/13. Anton showed us things in the city that I never knew existed - although I've been a fan of SF for over 30 years - and shared information that must be top-secret! Walking the city gave us a perspective we couldn't have gotten on a big bus, and allowed us to investigate points of interest more thoroughly. Anton's intimate knowledge of both tour points and other city tangents was rich and insightful. My next visit to SF will include some time with Anton on another tour - what a treasure!

“Informative walk around San Francisco”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Very interesting walk and talk. We went on Trek 1 which went to Ferry Building Farmers Market, Chinatown, Pacific Heights Landmark Mansions & Victorian Houses, Cow Hollow, North Beach & Union Square. A mixture of metro, buses and walks to get around.
Liked - history, guide's knowledge, farmers market, some of the views, Chinatown
Disliked - focus on large houses and prices of real estate in Pacific Heights
Well worth doing and don't be put off by the walking - not much and very easy.

“Spectacular!”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

Our group of three travelled to San Francisco for a girls weekend. Two of us had already been to SF a couple of times and one of us was visiting for the first time. We ALL enjoyed it and learned a lot. Anton's passion for San Francisco is very obvious and his depth of knowledge is impressive. He was also able to make great recommendations. Would highly recommend it to future visitors.

“This tour is definitely the best thing to do in San Francisco”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

Now I know why Urban Trek USA has such a high ranking on Tripadvisor !! Anton is so committed in making his tour a unique experience that he has beaten my expectations, which were already very high. You should do this tour the day after you arrive in San Francisco, because Anton will provide you with so many useful information and ideas about places to visit in the next days. Don't even think that the price you will pay is too high, because it's worth every cent. DO IT, enough said.

“Excellent and very informative tour!”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We did 2 different treks with Anton during the first 2 days we were in San Francisco. Anton is very knowledgeable and informative and walking is definitely the best way to explore San Francisco. In addition to very informative tours, Anton gave us a lot of other information that really helped us during our stay in San Francisco. He showed us and explained to us how to use public transport (e.g. how to open the rear bus door when getting on the bus when the driver doesn't open it). He also gave us some restaurant recommendations and we tried a number of them, all were excellent! He also gave us some tips on some of the sights we were planning to see on our own. I would highly recommend Anton's treks for anyone who wants to do more than just drive by the sites on a tour bus.
