We had such a great time! We loved that the tour was a small group and customizable to what our group wanted to see, not just to what we were supposed to see while in San Francisco. Loved learning about the different areas and being able to drive through and see just about everything we wanted. We HIGHLY recommend this tour!

My husband and I really enjoyed this tour! Eric knows a lot about the area and was a great tour guide! Saw many wonderful city sites and the Golden Gate Bridge! It is a small group tour which makes it ideal! At the end of his tour he takes you to the ferry for the Alcatraz Tour and makes sure you have the tickets needed.

Highly recommend this fun urban adventure in an awesome little safari type truck. Eric was an amazing guide who took us on an excursion coverin pretty much the entire city. Lunch at Gus's Market was outstanding. Would have liked to stop for pictures in Haight-Ashbury but at least we got to see the area. Ended the morning and early afternoon when Eric dropped us off at the Alcatraz ferry for the rest of our adventure. Highly recommend this tour with Eric!

well worth the money, Rick was full of information very friendly and amiable and took us all over San Francisco. We saw more on this one trip than we would have done by going it alone. We thoroughly enjoyed it and he even got our Alcatraz tickets to save us queueing etc.i have been telling everyone I know to do this

This isn't your regular city sightseeing tour. It's much more interesting and fun! Imagine you are going to be shown the sights by a guide who lives in the city, knows it's neighborhoods, and is willing to alter the itinerary to suit the interests of the 10 or so passengers in his open-sided vehicle. That's what this tour offers.

Eric, the owner/operator, is someone who seems genuinely interested in meeting and interacting with his guests. He obviously loves to show people around SF, and that comes across on the tour. You will see a few things the regular tours won't show you, and have a great time to boot.

Highly recommended!

Had a great time on the SF Urban Adventure and Alcatraz Tour. Eric was a terrific guide. We were able to get to several SF traditional tourist spots, plus several of the SF neighborhood districts. My wife and I highly recommend the tour. Highlight was raising the American Flag at Fort Point under the Golden Gate.

Brilliant. Eric was such a great tour guide. He was super friendly, knew so many facts about San Francisco and was willing to answer any questions. He also was open to where people on the tour wanted to go and see. He would crack some jokes not too cheesy and this made the tour really fun and interesting. What impressed me most was his ability to remember everyone's name I think there was 12 of us and where each and everyone was from. Every time someone new was added to the tour, Eric would introduce everyone again. Provided blankets were also a bonus as at times it was a bit cold. Would highly recommend this tour!

If I could rate this tour more than 5 stars I would. This was, hands down, the best tour we took during our entire stay in San Fran. Eric, our guide, was THE BEST. So witty and funny and very informative. He was engaging and took us to all the right spots and told us neat little tid-bits that most large tour guides would not mention. We had a small group of only 8 people and it was perfect. The surfboard open air truck was great and really allowed us to see everything. We went all over the city and stopped for a great lunch at an open market. I got some wonderful pictures of the city! Last stop was Alcatraz and Eric helped each one of us get our tickets and made sure we were set before he left us. We would have been happy to have him come show us the prison as well! I cannot say enough good things about this tour. It is a little pricey but worth every penny for the personalized service you get. You will not be disappointed.

This was an amazing tour. Eric our guide was fantastic!!! He was so personable and made the whole trip so fun and memorable. He remembered everyone's name and we had a group of 12 so that was impressive. His knowledge was amazing and he made the whole day fun, interesting and very memorable. I would highly recommend this tour and Eric as a tour guide.

Eric is fantastic! You will view and learn about many fabulous areas of SF that a large bus or designated route tour would never get to.

Excellent! Saw much more of SF than we did fifteen years ago on our own. Loved the tour! Eric is super friendly, knowledgeable, and personable. This tour is a great way to see a lot of SF in a short time. I'd recommend doing it at the beginning of your trip, this way you can return to the areas Eric showed you that interest you the most. Highly recommend! Hello from Brooklyn, Eric.

Eric was a wonderful tour guide! He was friendly and helpful, and we enjoyed his cheesy jokes! We toured all around San Francisco while he gave us the history and any points of interest. We drove over the Golden Gate Bridge, and he took us to a location above it where we had a great view and took lots of photos. After lunch at a family owned grocery store, Eric helped us to pick up our tickets for our 2:10 ferry ride to Alcatraz. It was a very enjoyable day!

We loved this tour. Eric is very knowledgeable on all the different neighborhoods of SF and has a great fun personality to boot. He customizes the route to accommodate his guests and hits all the highlights as well. When we booked we were unable to get Alcatraz tickets so his providing them was good

This tour was a great way to get a sample of the city. Best way to get into Alcatraz due to it sells out fast. Our tour guide was great and kept everyone involved with trivia of the city. I liked how he kind of tailored the trip among the groups requests. Got to see some awesome sites and many picture moments

Great trip. I highly recommend this for first timers to San Francisco. I originally booked this trip because it was the only way I could have gotten onto Alcatraz because it sells out fast but I'm really glad I got to experience this tour. Eric the tour is simply a guy who loves his city and loves to show off some very interesting areas from old military forts, great views of the city, billionaire houses, and some movie locations. He will cater the tour to you by asking what would you like to see? If you aren't sure that's okay he will find you something awesome.By the end of the tour he will have you all singing...Riiiiice a Roni, the San Francisco treat Ding Ding!

This tour was fantastic! Eric is a conscientious and engaging tour guide. As well, he is thoroughly knowledgeable of the San Francisco area. This tour was informative, interesting and fun. We visited several vantage points to view the Golden Gate Bridge, Golden Gate Park, Twin Peaks, The Presidio, and various neighborhoods. In the afternoon, we toured Alcatraz, a definite highlight! I would most definitely recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning more about all that San Francisco has to offer its visitors. One note: Make sure to dress warmly, as it can feel a bit chilly in the back of the open aired vehicle. Go and enjoy!!!

This tour was terrific! Eric is the consummate professional -- incredibly knowledgeable and conversational. He knows the city like the back of his hand. On top of that, Eric is fun! He shows you the city as if you were his own family coming into town for the first time, and wants to share as many interesting points and places as possible. Really enjoyed the whole experience!

The four of us, two adults and two grandchildren, thoroughly enjoyed our day with the Sand Francisco Urban Adventure and Alcatraz tour. The driver/tour guide was certain that all of us could hear him in the back of his truck and called us by name! The tour included sites and explanations that could be understood by all, including our ten-year-old grandchildren. He also made certain there was timer for stretching and, in the case of the children, running. He took us to an unusual grocery store where we ordered our lunches and reflected on the morning. And our guide made certain that we were in the proper lines for the Alcatraz tour. It is his own business andhe does a great job!
The children loved Alcatraz - who wouldn't?

The reviewers nailed it, Eric is the best! No need to repeat what has already been said. Eric grew up in the area and is a one-person business. So book this tour now and you are sure to get him as your guide.

Absolutely fantastic! Eric our tour guide was extremely personable and engaging - his knowledge of San Fran second to none. I know he has been doing this for a long time but his enthusiasm could not have been greater had this been his first day. Cannot recommend this tour enough - so many sites seen - I really feel I got to know this incredible city well in the space of just one day.
