Group Tours of the Historic House are offered only on Wednesdays from October through May. Groups of 21 to 70 guests can be accommodated. Reservations must be made in advance.
The private tour allows groups to enjoy the 90-minute Historic House Tour and the various exhibitions and offerings at Sunnylands Center & Gardens, on a day when it is not open to the public.
Group tours are offered on Wednesdays at 9:15 am, noon, and 2:15 pm. Sunnylands can accommodate groups of no more than 70 guests. Groups can book up to two tour times. Each tour time allows for a minimum of 21 and a maximum of 35 guests. Guests are encouraged to allow time to walk the Gardens and enjoy exhibitions in the Center. The 20-minute, award-winning film A Place Called Sunnylands is shown on a regular schedule and is best seen prior to the tour time.
The group tour price is $48 per person. A lunch option is offered at an additional $17 per person. When requesting a tour date and time, please indicate on the form whether you are interested in the lunch option.

Reservations for group tours for the 2017-18 season can be made beginning July 1, 2017 at 9:00 am Pacific through an online form, which may be accessed at the button below. Please fill out and submit the online Group Historic House Tour form.
The demand for group tours is very high. Therefore, only one tour reservation will be accepted per season from any one particular group or organization. Reservations are on a first-come, first-served basis. Submitting a request does not guarantee or confirm a reservation.
Confirmation & Payment:
Within five business days of receiving your group tour reservation request form (with alternative dates), the tour manager will contact you to confirm a date, process a non-refundable deposit of $480, and answer any questions. The signed contract and deposit must be received within 10 days to hold the reservation. Full payment based on the number of guests (less the deposit) is due one month prior to the tour date.
All sales are final; there are no refunds or exchanges. The 90-minute tour includes approximately one-half mile of walking through the historic house. Please indicate on the form whether anyone in your group has special needs.
Due to the unique mission of Sunnylands, public access may be limited or prevented during high-level retreats, thus requiring the cancellation of scheduled tours--even those already ticketed. In these rare cases, refunds will be made promptly.
