Learn the who, what, when, where and why of Silicon Valley on this private, 8-hour tour. Visit the Peninsula south of San Francisco for an in-depth look at the companies that have changed our lives with technology and social media. See Stanford, Google, Apple, Facebook and many other companies that affect our 21st century lives. I have lived and worked in Silicon Valley since the 1970's and know the area well. Join me as I share with you the stories about the people and places of this unique area.
We will visit the Facebook "Like" sign for a photo opportunity, while hearing about the company, its expansion, and its prospects. We will visit the Google campus, the Google store (open weekdays), and take photos at the Google Android statues. Other destinations include Apple Visitors Center, Intel Museum, Computer History Museum, NASA, Steve Jobs childhood home, and the Hewlett Packard garage. The exact itinerary will depend on your needs, preferences, and the time allotted. If time allows, we will take a walking tour of Stanford University, enjoying the Cantor Museum, the Memorial Church, the Science and Engineering Quad, and the bookstore.
