Public Walking Tours

Public walking tours for individuals and families

We offer free walking tours of the campus almost every day of the year, rain or shine. Our expert guides are student ambassadors who know the university and student life. Applying to Berkeley? History buff? Nostalgic alum? A campus tour is perfect for you.

These walking tours are for individuals, families, and parties of up to nine people. If you are a school group or organization, a party of 10 people or more or you’re interested in a private tour, please go to the Group/Private Tour Page for more information.

Tours leave at 10:00 am from the Koret Visitor Center at 2227 Piedmont Avenue, in historic California Memorial Stadium. From February 13-April 28, 2017, public walking tours will also be offered at 1:00 pm on weekdays.

  • Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
