    I am responsible for arranging a group tour(s) for about 50 classmates celebrating a 50 year reunion in late October,2017.
    The factory tour is open to Tesla owners (I am one) but only 3 guests are allowed per owner. I know that group tours are done if you have a contact. I don't have one and have not been able to arrange a group tour through the factory.
    Does anyone know someone that I can contact?
    I think this group of people are ideal prospects for Tesla so I really believe a tour could be a great marketing event for Tesla and my classmates.

    Why don't you use the generic Tesla Contact webpage and it will direct you to the one who coordinates factory tour?

    Been there and done that. No on group tours unless you know someone to pull strings,I guess. Standard reply is tours for owners and 3 guests only

    Don't mean to be a downer, but it's highly unlikely you're going to get a tour. I'm sure that the demographic fits with Tesla, but so do a lot of other groups or potential owners who aren't able to get a tour.
    That said, good luck :).

    r u sure your the only Tesla owner in the group? Reservation holders are also eligible for tours.

    Unless something has changed that isn't true. Model 3 reservation owners are not eligible for tours. (And there are probably not any Model S/X reservations holders left.)

    Thanks for the thoughts. Reservations are not good enough for tours-so i was told by the factory
