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.

We've both done a number of walking tours in other cities, and Urban Trek was up there with the best. We did Trek #4 today. It was very well thought out and prepared, to provide a cohesive and comprehensive historical background of the city, but without overdoing it. The small groups are excellent, making the tour feel much more personalised,... More

Are you like me and really want to get to know a destination but run out of time to research and prepare before you go? We try to do walking tours in places we visit and Anton's tour has,by far, been the best prepared and most informative we have done. At lots of historical points he was able to show... More

Myself and my partner did a tour with Anton at the beginning of February. As it was my first time in San Fran and we had limited time we thought it would be a good idea to get a bit of history and a locals view of things. Was excellent. Anton is a wealth of knowledge and has been doing... More

Anton is a wonderful guide with tremendous knowledge of his city! We did about an 8 hour trek and saw a great deal of beautiful San Francisco even with the inclement weather we had a wonderful time! I highly suggest booking Anton if ever in the city!!

I was in SF with my girlfriend for two days and we wanted to get to know as much of the city as possible in that short period of time. We stumbled on Anton's Urbantrek tour since he was highly rated on TripAdvisor. His reviews and ratings did NOT disappoint. The tour he gave was the perfect amount of information... More

We were very pleased with our walking tour with Anton. He is a one man show and knows his history well and his love of the city is apparent. We covered a lot of ground in our four hours with Anton and he provides enough resources to continue your own exploration for days afterwards. Would recommend this tour to anyone... 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

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.
