About the Tour

The 2016 AIA East Bay Home Tours features six houses located in Oakland, Berkeley, Piedmont and Orinda. The houses open at 10am and close at 4:30pm. 

In general, tour goers drive their own cars to the houses and find their own parking on nearby streets. One house is in the Fire Storm Area; guests will be provided a shuttle at the Bica Coffeehouse.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get my tickets?
All tickets purchased by Noon, October 1st will be mailed.

Tickets purchased after that time can be picked up at AIA East Bay between 9am-6pm October 2-October 14, 2016. Or, you can pick them up at the tour day headquarters.

I'd like to bring my children, is that okay?

The minimum age to attend is 12 years. If parents wish to bring a younger child to the tour, one parent will be asked to remain outside the homes with the child at all times. Babies may be carried in a front-facing chest-carrier or baby sling. Strollers, back-carriers, and "babes in arms" are not allowed.

Pets are not allowed on the tour--even in carry-cases. If you have a service animal please contact AIA East Bay staff prior to October 5th so we may alert our docents.

Photography is not allowed inside the homes. This rule is strictly enforced.

All tourgoers are provided protective shoe covers to wear when entering each house. Contractor boots, high heels, and flip flops are not advised.

Is the tour fully accessible to the disabled?
These private homes often have stairways and steep driveways that require some walking and maneuvering. We apologize but access is not available for the disabled.
