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.

A great way to see neighbourhoods of San Francisco and get off the tourist trail. Anton was full of information, the walking was not strenuous, just a few steep stairs towards the end. Small group of 7 was a good number. 5 hours but it...More

the city. It's a large open area where tourists and
locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by,
enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and
