Ultimate guide to tours of San Jose

SJtoday has a great guide to every possible San Jose tour you can imagine. There are free walking tours, Segway tours down Guadalupe River, the San Jose Brew Bike, Ghost Tours (something I didn't even know about), Mt. Hamilton tours, and even boat tours--yes, San Jose has boats and access to the Bay in Alviso.

Next time you hear a friend say there is nothing to do in San Jose, find out what they like and take them on a tour. We have something for just about everyone.

See the full list here.

San Jose Silicon Valley Tours

During my vacation to Europe over the summer, my wife and I would always start out each new city with a double-decker bus tour. This was a great way to familiarize ourselves with the city, learn a little history, and plan out which touristy attractions we wanted to do during our stay. I couldn't help but think to myself that San Jose should have some sort of bus tour highlighting our museums and attractions. Fortunately, I wasn't the only one who had this idea.

San Jose Silicon Valley Tours is a new company that will provide 3 different kinds of tours right here in our backyard:

  • The San Jose Tour
    • Narrated three and a half hour trip
    • Stops at Japantown, Peralta Adobe, Fallon Hours, Rosicrucian Museum, Rose Garden, Kelley Park
    • As part of the tour, they'll stop for photo opps and visit at least two museums.
    • $79 per person
  • The Silicon Valley Tour
    • Narrated five and a half hour tour
    • Stops at the headquarters of Google, Facebook, eBay; Stanford, the Palo Alto Garage, Apple company store
    • Tour of the Intel Museum and the Computer History Museum
    • $99 per person
  • Custom Tours

Needless to say, this is a HUGE step towards promoting tourism in San Jose and Silicon Valley. To help support them, here is a link to their tours.
