Geographically, Silicon Valley covers the entire southern half of the San Francisco Peninsula and the southern portions of the East Bay, and extends to San Mateo and Santa Clara counties; both located in the southern portion of the San Francisco Bay in Northern California.

These high-tech corporations are based in different cities including: Campbell, Sunnyvale, Saratoga, Cupertino, Milpitas, Morgan Hill, Mountain View, Palo Alto, San Mateo, San Carlos, Menlo Park, Freemont, Redwood City, and Foster City. Even some locals get lost driving through this huge valley of over 2 million people. Choose one of the options below so we can make the most of this day private trip:
Excursion and option # 1: This excursion is a popular full-day guided tour of Silicon Valley, combining a walking guided tour of Stanford University in Palo Alto, with a private or semi-private guided tour of Intel Museum, and a public or a self-guided tour of the Computer History Museum.
