Full description

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.

I did not expect that it work with me that way. I loved the experience of the self-guided tour in Silicon Valley; however, you should take care of the following: 1. You must have a car because the spots are not close to each other. 2. You should be patient at the beginning to know how it works. Once , you understand how it works, it will be perfect with you. 3. The application will take you step by step, but it’s as accurate as google maps; so stick to the route so you can get the best benefit out of it. 4. If you gone away, do not worry; you can select the next stop and let google get you there. The tour application can connect you automatically with Google maps too. Feel free to ask me any questions if you need any assistance. Email: moamenomar@gmail.com Moamen
