Four of us did a wine tour into the Sonoma Valley with our guide Eric. We had an amazing day out starting with great pastries and mimosas for breakfast. We tried a bunch of new experiences including wine blending which was great fun. Eric took a really flexible approach to the day and tailored the trip to meet our specific... More

The Urban Safari in San Francisco was unbelievable. What a great day had by all. Eric, our guide, took us to some spots that we otherwise would not have seen. We took some great shots from Twin Peaks and had a lovely lunch at a City cafe. The tour also included our trip to Alcatraz which again was fantastic. Would... More

Urban Safari from the first minute to the last minute of the four hour tour was interesting, informative & so much fun. Our tour guide, Daniel, showed an infectious enthusiasm & passion for the tour & this city that made it impossible not to enjoy it. My husband, myself & our 3 adult children have not stopped talking about it.... More

We purchased the SF Urban Safari (without Alcatraz) on Groupon hoping for a fun and educational tour of the city... Urban Safari exceeded our expectations. Unlike many of the other tour groups, our guide picked us up straight from the hotel for our departure. As SF newbies, this saved us a HUGE hassle trying to navigate transportation to find the...

Being a very expensive tour, I booked this tour and 30minutes later I was told, the date was not going to happen, but rush and get on the one that had already started. This was a mistake, should have asked for my money back. And when I asked for just part of it back they would offer was $30 and... More

CEODanny, Owner at The Urban Safari, responded to this review

So the public is fully aware, our tours last no less than 4 hours. We always ask the guests if they have specific desires, and take those into account. This is hardly considered "on the guide's whims". We have over 500 hours of touring itineraries up our sleeve...we're never short on ideas. Our guests like the idea of having input... More

An Urban Safari tour of San Francisco is an absolute must for anyone visiting the city. The staff, our driver, Obami, and our guide Naomi couldn't have been more helpful, fun and above all interesting. Naomi really knew her stuff and Obami also kept us entertained. They were so well organised. It was an absolute pleasure to spend the day... More

I've done a lot of day tours and must say that Urban Safari is a stand out operation. The staff are incredible to deal with and do go out of their way to look after you. Daniel and Sandy should be very proud of the tour company they've got up and running! Eric was our guide for the day and... More

This is by far one of the best tours I have ever been on. Right from the beginning our tour guide, Eric, made an effort to make everyone feel comfortable, and has us laughing and singing the entire time! As we were in the smaller vehicle, with only 6 other guests we were able to go to a lot of... More

Urban Safari never ceases to amaze, I have been on two tours with them in the last couple of years and have never had short of an amazing time. First trip with them was the San Francisco city tour on their big zebra bus, so much fun (even though everyone stares at you wearing your safari hats and animal print... More
