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.

It was our first visit to San Francisco. Anton is a knowledgeable guide. It was wonderful to travel the city in a small group. The tour was well paced, with the right mixture of walking and taking public transportation. This is a real travel bargain. I would definitely do another trek with Anton!

We did the Urban trek on a Saturday. It is such a great way to get oriented and to become comfortable with using mass transit. Anton is passionate about his home town and has done the research in order to truly educate his guests about this magnificent city. It is a great tour!

The best way to find your way around a City on your first day. Would do it again even on a further trip as gives you such a good overview and helpful information about using the public transport system. Anton was very informative and although a little cliched, it was like spending your first day with a friend.

Although I lived in East Bay for four years and have been to San Francisco many times, I saw the city in a completely new light on Anton's tour! I was visiting my sister in SF and needed... More

Great tour. Anton was very informative, he loves SF and wants to share his information with you. This is not an all day walking tour, trains and buses are used to take the strain and therefore not gruelling at all. Small groups of 6 people plus Anton..excellent. Our only mistake was that we did this tour at the end of... More
