    I did not expect that it work with me that way. I loved the experience of the self-guided tour in Silicon Valley; however, you should take care of the following: 1. You must have a car because the spots are not close to each other. 2. You should be patient at the beginning to know how it works. Once , you understand how it works, it will be perfect with you. 3. The application will take you step by step, but it’s as accurate as google maps; so stick to the route so you can get the best benefit out of it. 4. If you gone away, do not worry; you can select the next stop and let google get you there. The tour application can connect you automatically with Google maps too.

  • From San Francisco: Silicon Valley Tech Tour

    2. From San Francisco: Silicon Valley Tech Tour

    Explore the past and future of Silicon Valley on an exciting tour of some of the most famous tech startup companies. Benefit from pickup at your hotel in central San Francisco, and then travel by air-conditioned bio-fuel minibus to the Computer History Museum in Mountain View. See some of the first mega computers and commercially-produced machines, as well as classic games like Pac Man and Atari to stir up some childhood memories. Learn more about the computer revolution and information age, and get an idea of where it is leading us to in the future. Break for lunch Palo Alto, and then visit the Google Campus and gift shop of the company's corporate headquarters. Check-in at the Facebook complex in Menlo Park, before heading back to San Francisco for drop-off at your hotel.

    I really liked the experience, the driver was very friendly. You have to keep in mind that you can not enter most of the buildings (after all, they are workplaces); but you do get to visit the technology campuses and take photos. Apple has a pretty nice experience in its store and the computer museum is very interesting(the ticket is included on the tour price). The only thing I didn't like much is that the company basically forces you to be at a hotel for pickup (I requested to be picked from one but they told me they would pick me from another one).

fun excursion with teenagers

Visit the Apple visitor center and walk around the interesting Google site. For Facebook, it's just a stop to take a photo in front of a big roadside like ... Visit which is pleasant in the air-conditioned minibus. Tour only in English.

Aside from the weather, the tour was a great way to get a glimpse of Silicon Valley. Unfortunately there was not much going on at the weekend, which is why I would rather recommend doing the tour during the week.

Informative and good organization

The tour guide was very nice and everything went well in time. Everything was thought of. Recommended!
