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 walk was filled with history and information about the city which would have taken me weeks to research and days to complete. I believe that this... More

Anton took a couple of newbie tourists and got us oriented to the best of San Francisco. He's full of all the kind of information you can only get from someone who lives here and genuinely enjoys sharing it. He cares about your experience. It's great to walk around and see hidden gems. We would never have seen all we... More

Amazing five stars tour. Anton was a very knowledgeable and friendly guide. We felt like we were exploring and learning about San Francisco from a long-time friend. He had great suggestions for restaurants, bars, and bakeries in the various neighborhoods. We enjoyed visiting some unique neighborhoods we wouldn't have found on our own. Walking San Francisco is a great way... More
