Join a Docent-Led Tour

Whether you are a first-time visitor or have been exploring Innisfree for years, start your next visit with one of our docent-led introductory tours. In about 30 minutes, our knowledgeable and personable volunteer docents share information on the garden’s history, diverse influences on its design, and unique sustainable gardening practices as you move together through the first part of the garden. They can then suggest additional garden sites to see on your own. We find that the more you know, the more you notice and hope you will agree.

Docent-led introductory tours are available on Thursdays and Saturdays at 10:30 a.m. and are included with your garden admission fee. They begin at the visitor kiosk in the parking area and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

After your tour, consider joining our volunteer docent corps and giving 30- minute introductory tours of Innisfree, helping to introduce visitors to this remarkable landscape. For more information about becoming a docent, email

If you prefer a more detailed guided exploration, sign up for one of our monthly curator’s tours. These last about an hour and a half and cost $35 (including admission). Private guided tours are also available.
