San Francisco Botanical Garden invites you to schedule a private walking tour for your group of 10 or more people. Garden tours last about 1 and a half hours, and are led by volunteer docents. Large groups will be split into smaller groups with 10-15 visitors per docent.

The fee for tours is $8 per person, plus admission to the Garden. Click here for admission information. High school and college groups may request tours, free of charge, depending on docent availability.
