Tour the Berkeley campus



Electric cart tours

For visitors with mobility concerns, tours of the campus by electric cart offer an alternative to the free daily walking tours.

The tours are one hour and the cart accommodates a maximum of five passengers.  The cart tour fee is $50, which must be paid in full by check or cash on the day of the tour. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept credit card payments.


Reservations: Due to limited availability, reservation requests must be submitted at least two weeks before the desired tour date.  Unfortunately, we are not able to guarantee that all cart tour reservations can be accommodated.


Availability: Electric cart tours are not offered year-round and are available on weekdays only.  Spring 2015 cart tours will be offered February 17-May 1. We will not be able to provide cart tours during spring break (March 23-27). When offered, tours may be requested for the following times: 10:00 am, 11:30 am, 1:00 pm, or 2:00 pm. 


IMPORTANT NOTICE: Summer 2015 cart tours have ended.  Fall 2015 cart tours will begin on September 21, 2015. If your cart tour request is related to mobility issues, please send a message to the tour coordinator at .
