Campus Tours

Golf Cart Tour

The Red Barn

The Red Barn

With Stanford’s 8,180 acres, it’s impossible to see all the highlights of campus in one hour. But, if you’d like to see the central campus area, as well as some hidden gems not included on other tours, sign up for our student-led golf cart tour.


This tour includes areas covered on the Campus Walking Tour, such as the Main Quad, Memorial Church, and the science and engineering buildings, as well as the option to include any of the following:

  • The Red Barn, where Leland Stanford bred and trained prize-winning horses
  • The Cantor Arts Center
  • Athletic facilities
Duration 1 hour
Cost $5.00 per person. The fee is waived for those with mobility restrictions and one companion.
Schedule 7 days a week, during regular seasonal operations*
10:00am and 1:00pm

* The Golf Cart Tour may be limited or closed during academic breaks and holidays. Times may vary during the summer.

View Schedule for details and to make reservations.

Reservations Online reservations are required. Two weeks advance notice is recommended. Cart accommodates five people. Children or infants may not ride on laps.

Please note that there is a great deal of information overlap between the Golf Cart Tour and our other tours (including the Campus Walking Tour and Discover Stanford Tour). We strongly recommend choosing only one tour that best suits your needs and interests.
