Visiting the Google campus

Hi guys, I'll be visiting the bay area on the 29th. Never visited west coast before. Visiting the Google campus has been on my bucket list since a long time. Getting a job or an on-site interview at Google is a long shot for me. I was wondering if any employee can escort me as a guest to the campus for around 15 minutes. Or just check me in and I can leave within half an hour. Any time of the day after 11 am is good. Would be very grateful. Sorry if this is a very weird request.

About me: I'm a new grad from Boston visiting there for an interview at Apple.

    You can just walk in and walk around the googleplex - there’s no fences or anything :)

      On quick googling I see that I can walk unescorted in some areas. I was wondering if I can enter some of the buildings, ride their bikes around the campus and try their famed free food. More than ready to pay for this experience lol...

      You can ride the bikes for free too.

      Typical photo stops are the dinosaur in the Googleplex and the Android statues.

      v0 Oh great. So I just take a bike from anywhere? Where can I park my car? Would I have to buy a ticket somewhere?

      You can park anywhere on campus where there is an open spot (unless specifically marked). No ticket needed.

      If you are in the Plex, you will see security folks or others with a "Have a ?" sign, whom you can talk to if you have questions. You will see a lot of other tourists visiting too.

      Enjoy your visit! (There might be some rain on Thursday, so plan for that as well.)

      Please don't ride the bikes..you're not supposed to, but guests generally do it anyway. Nothing is more infuriating than trying to get to my meeting across campus without a bike and seeing a brigade of guests strolling in the bikes.

    • Can't people just ride away with them? Free bikes to sell

    I wouldn't ride around Google's campus unless you have a death wish. I've heard they're running down people in buses now to avoid layoffs.

      Whose fault was the bus accident? I’m guessing it was the googler’s fault?
