This tour covered so much in a short time with many varying sites to see and fun experiences. Our guide, Victor, was fantastic! Kudos to Urban Adventures for not canceling because only two of us signed up for their afternoon tour (they had 17 people in their morning tour). Victor was very knowledgeable, interesting and enthusiastic; he treated us like... More

My tour guide, there was myself and another couple, was very informative and pointed out who the artists were and why. The food stops were great, had to keep one slice of pie for later... I highly recommend this tour..it's worth the travel from down town SF.

We took the Golden Gate Bridge to Cliff House walking tour with Devon. I can't imagine a better way to appreciate and learn about the amazing natural and historical setting of the city. As we walked, our guide told stories about the iconic bridge construction, and led us along a path offering wide-open vistas of the Bay while describing the... More

I did the Flavors and Murals of the Mission tour with Victor and it was fantastic! Besides all the gorgeous food he pointed out so many murals I would have missed myself and told me much more information about the more visible ones than I could have even thought to ask about. It's an amazing area of the city and... More

This was an awesome tour! I've never used Urban Adventures before - but now I'm hooked. Our guide Taylor was awesome. We walked, ate, chatted - it was like spending the morning with friends getting to know the neighborhood. It did not feel like a tour at all - which is what made it so awesome. I loved learning about... More
