Silicon Valley Hubs - Classic Tour

8 hours +  

On this full-day driving tour, experience first-hand what makes Silicon Valley the world’s most dynamic hub of global technology and entrepreneurialism. Hear stories about how it all got started and some of the world’s most influential companies were born. See how Google (and other tech company) employees live, and maybe even rub elbows with the next big founder over coffee!

This tour is ideal for guests who want to hit the most well-known sites and come away with an understanding of what powers Silicon Valley.

…Plus, what could be more cutting-edge than seeing it all from a Tesla Model X?

Depending on availability, sights are likely to include:

  • Apple “Spaceship” Visitor Center
  • Googleplex Visitor Center
  • Computer History Museum
  • Silicon Valley “Power Lunch” Site
  • Stanford University
  • Hewlett Packard Garage

Please note: Most Silicon Valley destinations are roughly a 1hr drive from San Francisco, and traffic can vary tremendously throughout the day between sites.
If you prefer to spend the day at a more leisurely pace, you may consider adding 1-2 additional hours to your experience.

Why choose SF Spark Tours

Its YOUR day. Let us maximize your exploration and quality time with family and friends. Since all our tours are completely private, we can adapt to your preferences and pace! We can be as leisurely or nimble as you choose. Make the memories you came for in the way that is most comfortable for you.

Greater Access

We can go places most other tours can’t. With our 6 passenger vehicle (5 guests), we can go just about anywhere and get you closer. Many tour vans and coaches are too large and thereby restricted in many of the most famous attractions and neighborhoods. Our vehicle is also discreet and un-branded. While its stylish design may turn a few heads, no one will assume you are anything but local. It’s our goal to make sure you will never feel like you are on a “tacky” group tour.

Leave the driving to us in a unique Luxury Vehicle

We are the only San Francisco based tour company with a 6 passenger Tesla Model X100D. This vehicle is ultra-modern and a lot of fun. Not only is our 100% electric vehicle clean and quiet, its among the safest passenger vehicles on the road today. It also features an impressive extra large windshield and interior glass for greater sense of openness and visibility that most 3 row SUVs can’t match. Learn more about our Tesla tour vehicle.

Learn from qualified LOCAL Pros!

Our professional lead guide Heather is a knowledgeable host who is passionate about sharing her home town with visitors like you. Unlike many “local” city guides, Heather actually grew up here, and can share stories and interesting tidbits from a lifetime of experience living and working throughout the area. We strive to provide the flavor and context needed to make every excursion interesting and memorable. In a place as dynamic as San Francisco, just about anything is possible! With just a little information up front, we can design custom itineraries to fit your group’s special interests, style and budget.

Environmentally and Socially Responsible

All electric and green, we are doing our part. Transportation contributes approximately 40% of all greenhouse gas emissions in CA, more than any other source. Driving electric already shrinks the carbon footprint by 50% over a gas powered vehicle, since producing electricity is cleaner than burning fuel in a regular combustion engine. We go even further by purchasing our electricity from our local community owned not-for-profit utility that sells carbon-neutral energy primarily from hydroelectric and wind sources.
