I received gift certificates for hikes two years in a row for my birthday and it's a gift I will never forget. My first hike was the Urban Jungle. I loved the hidden forest and views from Twin Peaks. The day started off cloudy, typical weather, but cleared up in the afternoon. My second hike was Tales of the City.... More

I contacted Urban Hiker on a holiday weekend, and Alex, the owner, responded on the same day. We wanted an afternoon hike, and she was happy to accommodate us. Alex stayed in touch with me in advance of our scheduled hike and provided me with all of the necessary details. Our guide, Taylor, was energetic, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable about the... More

Took the Urban Jungles tour that visited several of the hills around the Twin Peaks area. Start/finish location was easily accessible by public transit. The tour took us through several neighborhoods around Twin Peaks and included several "hidden" staircases. Great views of the city at the top.

I frequently visit SF because family lives here, but I try to do something new each time I visit. This urban hike was a lovely way to shake up a place that I have been to numerous times! I chose the Urban Jungle option, which started and ended at the Castro Theater. The guide was very knowledgeable about the history... More

Alex was responsive and communicative from the start. She answered my queries promptly and gave very detailed directions on where to pack, what to expect and where to meet. I was lucky to get a private 3 hour Lands Ends tour with Alex. Alex makes a good tour guide as she knows her stuff around the terrain and history. I... More

We had a FANTASTIC time on the hike to Twin Peaks on a recent weekend. The hike was fantastic, the weather was unexpectedly fantastic, and Dawn, our guide, was awesome in so many ways. Even though I had lived in The City for a couple of years in the past, this hike was original and very interesting. It was a... More

This is a fantastic way to see more of San Francisco than just the normal Embarcadero sector. We started our vacation with the hike, allowing us to get the lay of the land and to see amazing passages that most people would never see. We encountered beautiful gardens and surprising sites along the way. In our group, we had visitors... More

Great start to the holiday especially as this was our first time to SF. Excellent views, seen places that we would not have encountered on our own, Guide was extremely informative and friendly. Be under no illusion it is a good walk and lots of hills but well worth the effort! highly recommended.
