Additional Information

Title I schools receive free tours in January and February 2017. Due to high demand and limited availability, there is a $50 deposit due three weeks prior to your visit. This payment will only be processed if you cancel your tour.

The cost for all guided tours is $8 per student. Guided tours require 1 chaperone (admitted free) per 10 students. Admission for each additional chaperone is $8.

Full payment is required 3 weeks prior to your visit to guarantee your reservation for all tours. If booking less than 3 weeks in advance, full payment is due immediately.

Confirmation of day and time and Arrival Information will be sent via email. Please bring your confirmation with you on the day of your tour to ensure the group rate.

Should you choose to cancel your tour, 50% of the cost of your tour is non-refundable. If schools are closed due to weather, your tour will be rescheduled, or you will receive a full refund.
