  • Multiple student residential areas

View Schedule for details and to make reservations.


Online reservations are required. 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.

Additionally, though the majority of the golf cart tour is a driving tour, there will likely be a small bit of walking (typically walking in and out of Memorial Church).
