    I'm a happy owner of Model 3 and we are planning a visit to the Bay Area in early Sept. I would like to see the Tesla plant. Can anyone tell me how to arrange a Tesla Fremont factory visit-
    what days is it available? can I book it online? is there a visitor's parking?

    Though it might be too late for early September.

    Tours are for Tesla owners only, so you will need to provide your VIN#, I think.

    I'm going to SF tomorrow morning, and have the Fremont factory tour tomorrow afternoon! SO EXCITED!!!!!

    Yes, you need to email the above address, but you generally need to book well in advance. No harm in emailing, and in my experience they were VERY quick to reply.

    From their email:

    • We host factory tours for Tesla owners Monday-Friday promptly at 10am, 11am, 1pm, and 5pm
    • Owners’ Tours are not available on weekends or major holidays
    • Tours last approximately 60 minutes
    • All minors must be accompanied by an adult
    • No infants or toddlers (0 – 36 months old) permitted on the tour
    • We allocate 4 seats per owner group, and the registered Tesla owner must be present with their guests on the tour
    • We are able to allocate extra seats only if the entire tour party is the owners’ immediate nuclear family (registered owner, spouse, and more than 2 dependent children)
    • We cannot reserve tours more than two months in advance
    • We suggest booking at least 2-4 weeks in advance to ensure you get a seat on a tour
    • Tesla owners may book one tour per calendar year
    Parking may be limited, so use the complimentary Valet Parking near the Main Lobby if you have any problems finding a parking spot

    They say they book out several weeks, but in March I was in the area on a last minute business trip, emailed the tours email, and they got me onto a tour 2 days later. It was great! The folks that coordinate the tours were really helpful.

    The tour is great. I remember from the last earnings call that they said the factory is changing so rapidly that someone will not recognize things from one tour to another.

    It's kinda like Willy Wonka's factory, only they're making Teslas instead of Wonka Bars.

    Thanks for all the advice. My plan is to be in Fremont in 3 weeks.
    I've Emailed [email protected] as suggested here and received the Tesla-Tours automatic reply in less than a minute:
