Formal non-family groups of 15 or more adults are required to have a guided tour. Guided tours include a staff or volunteer expert and are approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes in length. Cost for a guided experience is $7.50 per person with a minimum cost of $75.00. Payment is due at the time of the reservation.

Most paths are accessible by wheelchair and stroller. Most groups enjoy spending a few minutes after the tour visiting our lovely gift shop, so make sure to add extra time for shopping!
