I had never been to Berkley and was staying in SF. I took uber from downtown (about $20) and walked about 7 miles through downtown and the university. It was really beautiful and great to see the ambience of this college.

We made a reservation to do a walking tour of the campus months ago.They have an address on there website to go to the Colosieum to start the tour but the Colosieum is huge.No signs to tell you any information.No people to guide you,nothing!
