Book A Group for the"Christmas Spectacular!"
Below is our old Group Booking Procedure. A new system involving credit cards will be implemented in May. Please use the information below only as a guide. Please come back to our sight in may to book a group.
Group booking Info
Tours will operate at 10:30, 1:30 and 5:00 daily. Bookings of 13 or more are considered a group and require a reservation deposit. You must indicate maximum number of guest reservations you would like to "hold" at the time of booking. Additions are not guaranteed. (Reservations for 1-12 are done on our self-booking page.)
Space is limited. Consider this like booking a theater show. We can accept up to 72 reservations per tour time, subject to availability. (Max can reach 104 if on buses.)
Visitors enter in divided guided groups with 18-24 (26 if requested) people each and enter 7-9 minutes apart.
Buses must arrive 30 minutes before tour time and have entry priority. Non bus groups need to arrive 25 minutes before tour time and complete groups also have entry priority. This is not a private group tour and tours start on time. If your group arrives late it will disrupt up our entire tour system. Your group might be pushed go last and that might disrupt your day's timetable.
We are located in a quiet neighborhood. Street parking for buses is always available just outside the Mansion gates.
Please note that steps are involved and there are no elevators or ramps. Free parking for cars is available on the estate, on the street or in the neighborhood at the church.
Limited restrooms are available so large groups are asked to plan a restroom visit before arrival. We can offer suggestions.
Tipping: We are often asked about tipping. Our guides give wonderful personal service for the 2 hours they spend with your group. The suggested tip amount is $2-$3 per person. Please share this with your group or perhaps add it to your price.
