What are the benefits of a customized urban trek vs. simply "trekking" on your own?
There are four big advantages in having an urban trek customized for you vs. you just going around on your own:
1. It will save you time and take away the headache in planning a day in San Francisco. You will not be worrying about knowing what bus to take, what the most efficient way is to get from one place to another, the best and/or most reasonably priced places to eat, and the possibility of getting lost.
2. You will have a better appreciation of the places you will visit because the Urban Trek Leader will provide you with historical and interesting information about them. If you are reading a book or listening to pre-recorded audio tour, those things will not be able to respond if you have any questions. You will also get good recommendations of things to do in each neighborhood so if you feel like going back you will know what your options are.
3. You will get personal attention and feel like having a friend showing you around.
4. Urban Trek USA strives to be the best and most fun way to get to know San Francisco.
