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.

I was very impressed with our tour guide Anton. He was very knowledgeable and made sure I had enough information before the tour started. He kept the pace of the tour moving along at my pace. I did not feel rushed. I was sad when the tour was over because it was interesting, fun and Anton was a delight to... More

Booked this walking tour of San Francisco with Anton Gaddi while spending a few (too few) days in the city recently. I had to change my booking from Tuesday to Thursday due to a delayed flight but this was no problem. We started at 9:30 and finished up about 3pm., or so, so it's a long enough walk, but we... More

As a heritage professional, I am particularly picky about understanding the places I visit. Anton was thorough, knowledgeable and able to field the many questions I had for him. Among many other titbits, he provided historical background, tips on how to identify styles of the Victorian architecture, practical lessons on using the SF public transport system, anecdotes and LOTS of...

We have traveled all over the world on self-guided tours, personal tours, and small group tours. Anton's personal tour was in a league of its own for our family of four (adult kids). His research into the city is impressive including the host of historical pictures he carries. His energy and enthusiasm is great. He provides a balanced perspective on... More

We decided to take an urban trek after viewing its strong reviews on Trip Advisor. Anton who owns and operates Urban Trek, communicated with us with emails prior to arrival and met us at our accomodation. Given we were staying at Castro, Anton created a special trek for us to take advantage of our location. Which started at Tank Hill... More

I did Urban trek 4 with Anton and it was a great experience. He took us to the main highlights in the city and gave a great historical overview. Anton clearly enjoys what he does and is super helpful during and after the tour if you have questions. I strongly recommend this walking tour. I wouldn't have been able to... More

Anton has a really deep knowledge and passion for his tour guiding in San Francisco. The full day ensures you develop a really good understanding of the history and contemporary SF. He is adaptable and thoughtful about his guests. We would recommend spending a day with Anton - you see and do more!! But be prepared to be tired from... More

We had an excellent day with Anton on our UrbanTrek 2. He is a very knowledgeable guide and has thought hard about where to go and what information to include when. We were really engaged by all he told us and really enjoyed our day. We certainly saw parts of San Francisco which we would never have found by ourselves... More

Book ! This is a very special day. Loved traipsing around this wonderful city and hearing the stories from Anton, who is more than willing to share his expertise and passion for the city. He is generous with this recommendations and spirit and will take you to places you may not get to otherwise

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighbourhood home.
