Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get my tickets?
You will have three options for getting your tickets:

1. You can pick tickets up at will-call at the tour-day headquarters.

2. You can pick tickets up at AIA East Bay between 9am-5pm August 1 -August 11, 2017.

3. Or, for $5 (and if you purchase before August 7) you can have them shipped to you via UPS.

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 August 1st 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. Sorry, bare feet are not allowed.

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.
