Let Us Give You the Grand Tour 

Guided tours of Reiman Gardens highlight the Christina Reiman Butterfly Wing, Conservatory, Jones Rose Garden, and other areas of the Gardens. A one-hour guided tour is $13 per person (for a minimum of 10 people), and this price includes all admission to the Gardens. They are available Monday through Friday only. Tours must be arranged at least two weeks in advance. Add other options such as lunch and lectures for an additional fee. Please note that an indoor room is not included with the booking of an adult tour. Any space needed for a lunch, program or speaker must be arranged with the events coordinator in advance for a fee. In addition, if the minimum of 10 people cannot be met, groups have the option of switching to a self-guided tour; otherwise groups will be charged for the 10 people minimum.
