Guided tours are offered daily at no additional cost with trained volunteer guides. Tours begin in the Courtyard of Tranquility, and last approximately 45 minutes. Visitors are welcome to join in or drop out at any time and no reservations are required to join.
Private Group Tours
Groups of 15 or more can arrange to have a private tour of the garden with a trained volunteer guide at the reduced rate of $7 per person (a savings of $2.50 each).
In order to provide a guide and be able to offer the discount, reservations are required and we ask for at least two weeks advance notice of your visit. Reserving early will also ensure your visit on the day and time of your choosing. Tours can be tailored to specific groups so please let us know if your group has any special interests or limitations.
Lan Su Chinese Garden offers guided tours of the garden during the school day and school calendar to pre-K to 12th grade students at a special school rate. The minimum number of people required for a school tour is 15 people (for example, 12 students and 3 adults.)
To book a docent-led school tour, Lan Su requires at least two weeks advance notice. If the group falls below the 15 person minimum, the cost will be calculated on normal admission fees. For groups larger than 25, additional docents will be scheduled. The maximum number of students touring at one time is 60.
Please note: Private and School Group tours cannot be scheduled before 11 a.m. on Thursdays.
