Walking Tours

Tours start at 10:00 a.m. and end at approximately 12:00 noon. Sometimes they are slightly longer, so some extra time should be allowed in case the walk meets an informative passerby or dwells at an interesting site. Tours are limited to 30 paying participants unless noted otherwise. Pre-paid reservations are required and tickets are not refundable. Tours are conducted in rain, shine or Berkeley fog.


Individual tours are $12 regular, $10 for BHSM members. Members can sign up for all four for $35. Non-members can buy a membership and a season ticket for $50.

Here is the order form to purchase tickets. Print and mail the form or print it to PDF and email to info@berkhistory.org.

Keep a record of your order. E-mail addresses and telephone numbers are very important for last-minute changes and confirmations. You will be sent an e-mail or a phone message with each tour’s starting point.

For last-minute reservations, call 510-848-0181 between 1 and 4 pm on the Thursday or Friday before the tour to learn the meeting place and sign up if there is an opening.

If you have suggestions for future walking tours, please email us or leave a message at 510-848-0181.
