Au programme

Hear about the history and culture that makes Berkeley one of the most famous cities in the world. We'll stroll safely through campus and the surrounding areas. This activity is 100% outdoors, and attendance is limited so it's easy for everyone to keep at a safe distance from one another. We'll meet just outside the Paris Baguette Cafe at 2150 Shattuck Avenue just next to the downtown Berkeley BART station. We'll learn about Berkeley's downtown area, then cross through UC Berkeley's campus alongside tree-lined Strawberry Creek. We'll pass by the Free Speech Cafe and talk about Berkeley's protests. Finally, we'll walk the historic route from Sproul Plaza to People's Park. Afterward you can shop for one-of-a-kind jewelry and t-shirts on Telegraph Avenue. A number of restaurants are now open, so you can grab some lunch.

Other things to note:

This is a history-focused tour, but the topics we cover during our walk are flexible based on everyone's interests. Please be sure to tell Pam what topics you are most interested in and she can also adjust at any point in the tour based on the questions and topics that guests bring up as we stroll from downtown Berkeley to People's Park.

Please wear comfortable walking shoes. I also recommend sunscreen and cash for refreshments and street artists. There are lots of great options for lunch and activities after the tour.

Hi! I'm Pam and I've lived in Berkeley since 1985. My guidebook to Berkeley will be in bookstores soon. I have a Bachelor's in Political Economy from UC Berkeley, and a Master's in California and Local History. I've worked on the UC Berkeley campus since 1999. Currently I'm career counselor, and my past jobs were in admissions, student life, and international advising. I love discussions about politics, culture, economics, alternative lifestyles, and international issues. I'm excited to meet you and introduce you to one of the most exciting cities in the world!

Pamela provides an excellent perspective on the intertwined evolution of Berkeley -- the city and the university. She is well-steeped in local politics, geography, and botany, as well as history. Two and a half hours wasn't enough! Highly recommended.

Don’t miss this tour if you’re a lover of history and want to get a great overview of campus history. Pamela was so knowledgeable thoroughly engaging. It’s obvious how well she understands and loves the subject. This was our first tour during Covid and it did not disappoint!

Pamela is very attentive and caring. I have a bad back and customize my experience with multiple resting points. She shared her extensive knowledge of Bwrkeley and the University. When my back is better I'll take the tour again.
