Description

Start by downloading the Action Tour Guide app, which will function as your personal tour guide, audio tour, and map. Purchase one tour per car, not per person. Everyone listens together! NOTE: This 42+ mile-long tour covers the essentials of Silicon Valley in 2-3 hours. Hop in your car and enjoy this self-guided audio tour of the birthplace of tech. Cruise through Silicon Valley while checking out the headquarters of tech giants and learn about the visionaries who’ve shaped the world, from Bill Gates and Steve Jobs to the controversies around Mark Zuckerberg and Jeff Bezos and the eccentricities of Elon Musk. Simply hop in your car, get the tour guide app set up on your phone, and get started. Start your tour at Facebook's headquarters and learn about Zuckerberg and his vision. All audios play automatically based on location. As your tour continues, learn about the oldest struggle in tech — idea vs execution. Arrive at the backbone of Amazon, AWS, and learn about Bezos and Amazon's humble beginnings. Next, head to the Android Garden and learn about the fight between Google and Microsoft. Continue down the road to Google’s headquarters, called the Googleplex, and enjoy a stroll through the campus before arriving at Microsoft and the beginnings of the modern world. Learn about Gates, BASIC, and Windows. Stop at a museum to play the first-ever video game and see one of the first-ever computers. From there, continue onto Apple to learn about the feud between Jobs and Gates and even stop by Jobs’ Garage. Finally, switch from smartphones to smart cars and learn about Elon Musk and Tesla as you drive towards the heart of Silicon Valley. Finish your tour at Stanford, the school of choice for tech entrepreneurs.
