Experience the History and Future of Tech in Silicon Valley!
Want to see where it all began? Let us take you back in time while driving you into the future for a day tour of Silicon Valley. We’ll start the day with a visit to the world-famous Apple campus and then off to the Computer History Museum where you’ll get a chance to see some of the first mega-computers and commercially-produced machines.
Next up, take a selfie in front of the Google Campus and shop at the company’s gift shop, then head over to Palo Alto for lunch, and check-in at Facebook in the afternoon before “commuting” back to San Francisco.
*Some activities are not accessible in extreme weather or due to road closures. Every attempt will be made to find comparable activities if these options are not available.
