Discover San Diego's inner soul on walking tours of her diverse & unique urban neighborhoods. Our casually paced adventures provide an opportunity to explore San Diego's hidden gems--the older neighborhoods that are the foundation of America's Finest City. It's only by walking the residential streets & sipping coffee in neighborhood caf�s that one can feel the pulse of a city and gain an appreciation for the role of a small neighborhood in the big city. Urban Safaris was formed to introduce residents and visitors to San Diego’s urban neighborhoods and their cozy caf�s, one-of-a-kind shops, enticing ethnic eateries, architectural details, and surprising oddities. But it’s also a great way to make new friends and get some exercise, learning as you go.

Explore the thriving art community of East Village, the ostrich eggs of University Heights, the funkyhat.GIF (4646 bytes) beach community of OB, the Irving Gill architecture of Hillcrest, and much more. You’ll be surprised at what you find--San Diego is so much more than just beaches and Balboa Park. Don your safari hat and join me on an urban safari!
