GET OFF THE TOUR BUS & URBAN TREK WITH US! Urban Trek USA's - small group (maximum of 7 people)- San Francisco tour is an EXPERIENCE better than being aboard a tour bus or shuttle. An urban trek is an IMMERSIVE sightseeing & walking tour experience where you will use the city's public transportation system and walk around and learn about the different neighborhoods, see some "secret spots" with great views without the crowd 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 tour) urban trek for a party of four or more.
