The official baseball season runs from April to October, but stadium tours operate year-round. That means you can take yourself out to the ballpark, even when the Giants aren’t in town. Public tours are offered every day at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. (check here for blackout dates). The tours last 90 minutes and include stops at the press box, the luxury suites, the visitors’ dugout, and the visitors’ clubhouse.
In addition, the Giants also offer a homerun lineup of customized private tours:
Birthday Party Tours Each guest receives a sandwich box lunch and a chocolate-and-vanilla cupcake. For an additional $200, Giants mascot Lou Seal will make a 30-minute appearance, providing an autographed photo for every child and a special gift for the birthday boy or girl.
Combo Tour A behind-the-scenes tour of the park follows a two-hour city tour aboard a Gray Line bus. You’ll visit San Francisco landmarks such as the Golden Gate Bridge, Haight & Ashbury, and Fisherman’s Wharf.
Private Batting Practice Tours This pregame tour allows your group to walk through the public areas of the stadium on the day of a Giants game before the gates open to the public. Visitors may also get a chance to sit and watch the Giants begin on-field batting practice. All guests must have tickets to that day’s game.
Educational Tours Specially designed outings for school field trips are also available, including one that explores the history of the team, one that uses the ballpark to talk about the geometric shapes that make up baseball, and one about various careers in the sports industry.
