Well what a weekend!

  1. Factory tour Friday
  2. Stanford Mall Tesla Store Saturday
  3. Apple Park Saturday
  4. Pebble Beach Sunday
I have lost count of the number of 3’s that I have seen. S3X is everywhere here. Plenty of Bolts, which I conclude is a terrible looking car.

I'm hoping to do a factory tour when I pick up my car. How difficult is it to schedule one? Do you need a reservation or just walk in? Any tips on the best way to arrange one or other suggestions would be great!

Have you covered...

Send an email to FactoryTours@tesla.com

You can bring up to 3 guests

They say it fills up fast so book at least a few weeks out. I booked a few months out to be safe ;)

Thanks, that's perfect info. Any other suggestions while in the area? I like the idea of visiting the Apple campus, is that anything you had to setup prior?

While this appears to be a trip all for me, it was actually my sister’s surprise birthday weekend.

Apple isn’t too far. There is a visitors center which is basically a massive store right across from the spaceship headquarters. They have an iPad with AR kit and you can take a look at their campus. Very cool! Besides Pebble Beach the rest of our time here was just centered around eating in the Stanford area :)

I was under the impression that you had to be an S or X owner to get a tour?

Hard to say if that’s the case as all Model 3 owners are essentially “existing owners”, but that said I asked a few months ago about putting the tour in my name and they said they couldn’t until I took possession of the 3 which to me confirmed the 3 gets you a tour...

New SX owners can get a tour. My friend (who has never owned a Tesla) ordered a Model S and they are being given a tour the same day as their delivery.

That may not be the case with 3's because they'd have logistics issues with half a million "future owners' setting up a tour. :)

I'm absolutely going to take this tour. Hopefully @SoFlaModel3 can answer a few questions without the Tesla NDA implant in your brain exploding and killing you (ala the original Total Recall)

How long does the tour last? Do they start on time? Is there anything to do/see at Tesla aside from the tour? I assume Ubering around San Francisco is better than renting a car?
