I BOUGHT TICKETS ONLINE. WHERE IS WILL-CALL?
If you purchased your ticket online at Brown Paper Tickets, you received an email confirmation with a “Print-At-Home” ticket. Bring your confirmation to one of the day-of-tour ticket sales sites listed above to exchange your “Print-At-Home” ticket for the Tour Booklet..
How Does the Tour Work?
The Tour Booklet/Ticket you purchase is a guide book that will contain the addresses and directions to each private garden site available to tour. At each garden, present your tour booklet/ticket where it will be stamped on that garden’s page to gain access. Every tour goer needs a ticket. (See “May I bring my child” below for further details.)
WHERE DO I START THE TOUR?
You may start the tour at any garden and visit gardens in any order you want.
IS THE TOUR HANDICAPPED ACCESSIBLE?
Unfortunately, the gardens are not accessible and wheel chairs, walkers and strollers are not allowed. Some of the gardens are on hillsides and will require sufficient strength and balance to use uneven stone steps
CAN I WALK THE TOUR?
Gardens #2, #3 and #4 are close enough together so that it might be possible to walk to them from a central parking location. The others will require driving as they are miles apart.
DO YOU HAVE A SHUTTLE?
No, you must provide your own transportation.
HOW LONG DOES THE TOUR TAKE?
That depends on how long you linger in each garden. We would recommend allowing at least 3-4 hours for touring (not counting lunch), if you want to go at a leisurely pace devote the entire day to it.
MAY I BRING MY DOG?
Please leave your dog at home.
MAY I BRING MY CHILD?
This tour is not appropriate for small children. Some of the gardens may have water features, steep stairs or embankments, toxic plants, or other risks for little ones. Also, please note that the gardens are not stroller-friendly. If you decide to bring children, please note they will each need a ticket unless they are infants in back or front packs. Please refer to the ticket booklet for accessibility notes.
