Gratuities

Hmm...we can’t seem to find this place. Please check the spelling, or choose another location.

9:30 AM

After booking, the operator will contact you about pickup time.

I can offer pickup from hotels and home shares anywhere in the downtown area (Union Square, Fisherman's Wharf, SOMA etc.) I cannot offer pickup outside of San Francisco (at airport hotels, for example) but I can arrange for a mutually convenient pickup point in San Francisco. Expect pickup between 9am and 9:30am, depending on where your group and other groups are staying that day.
The San Francisco Urban Adventure is a tour unlike any other. For four hours, you’ll peruse the SF streets in a custom-made, open-air safari vehicle, hunting down the best sights and attractions. You’ll take in the panoramic views from atop Twin Peaks, gawk at the moumental Palace of Fine Arts and visit some of the city’s quirkiest neighborhoods.

With your professional guide at the wheel, you’ll learn fun facts and interesting tidbits about the people and places that make San Francisco so unique. Want to see where Hitchcock filmed Vertigo? Consider it done. Your guide can easily adapt your tour to visit the attractions you most want to see (or that many locals don’t know even about), sometimes even incorporating events that happen to be taking place that day.

Please note: While this tour may make a stop at Alcatraz Landing, it does not include admission to Alcatraz.

A great way to see quite a few tourist attractions from SF in a time bound manner.

Had taken a similar tour back in 2012 when one of my close friends had come to visit me. It was a big learning experience back then! A great introduction to the city, its culture, history & heritage. So, now my best friend was going to visit me & it was his first trip to SF! So, taking a similar tour again seemed quite sensible. We were be able to cover all the top tourist attractions in a timely manner & later revisited the places which interested us the most! Efficient way to manage time! One thing I do remember was that the volume was a little low for me & I missed out on a few of the amazing stories from the tour. I will definitely be requesting him to increase the volume for me, the next time take this tour :) Overall it was an Amazing experience & nicely managed!

I am glad that you and your friend found the tour fun, informative and efficient! I am sorry about the volume, I'll make a note to check in with guests to make sure everyone is comfortable through-out the tour. Again thank you for coming aboard our tour!
