EXPERIENCE THE HISTORY AND FUTURE OF TECH IN SILICON VALLEY! (THE PAST AND THE FUTURE COLLIDE)
Home to countless legendary inventions, tales of businesses born from crowded co-working spaces, behind garage doors, intrigue and double crossing, Silicon Valley offers an intriguing mythology spilling over with 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 hardware we carry with us and use every day. We’ll kick off the tour exploring the multi-tiered, newly constructed Apple Visitor’s center, which is also a fully-stocked Apple Store.With cameras at the ready, we’ll stop in the colorful Android lawn statues – stylized to like candy that’s almost convincing enough to take a bite out of.
Next we’ll head to the one-of-a-kind computer museum, which takes you through the evolution of computing from the abacus to the complexities of artificial intelligence technology and self-driving vehicles.
Directly following the museum, we’ll make our way to the iconic Google Campus before checking out the gift shop to grab authentic Google tech and swag*. We’ll grab lunch together, and check-in at Facebook in the afternoon before making the commute back to San Francisco.
* Saturday itineraries vary slightly, due to the closure of Google gift shop.
*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.
