Silicon Valley Tech Tour

Home to countless legendary inventions, businesses born from crowded co-working spaces and behind garage doors, Silicon Valley offers an intriguing narrative full of double-crossings and rags-to-riches stories.

This tour will take you through the origin stories of Apple, Google, IBM, and many previously unrecognized technologists that paved the way for the advent of the hardware we use every day.

First, we’ll stop to ‘check-in’ at the Facebook Thumbs Up Sign on Hacker Way. Of course, we couldn’t forget a visit to the famous Google Campus too. With cameras ready, we’ll stop in the colorful Android lawn statues – stylized like candy almost convincing enough to eat. You’ll be able to explore the gift shop and grab authentic Google tech and swag too.

A highlight for many, we’ll next make an extended stop at the one-of-a-kind Computer History Museum. Taking you through the evolution of computing, from the abacus to the complexities of artificial intelligence and self-driving vehicles, you’ll feel like a tech history pro after your visit.  We’ll also explore the multi-tiered, newly constructed Apple Visitor’s Center - which is also a fully-stocked Apple Store - before returning to San Francisco.
