    I really liked the experience, the driver was very friendly. You have to keep in mind that you can not enter most of the buildings (after all, they are workplaces); but you do get to visit the technology campuses and take photos. Apple has a pretty nice experience in its store and the computer museum is very interesting(the ticket is included on the tour price). The only thing I didn't like much is that the company basically forces you to be at a hotel for pickup (I requested to be picked from one but they told me they would pick me from another one).

    Aside from the weather, the tour was a great way to get a glimpse of Silicon Valley. Unfortunately there was not much going on at the weekend, which is why I would rather recommend doing the tour during the week.
