All guests, including chaperones (ages 3 and up) – $8 per person plus tax.
Please note that while groups of 10 or more receive a discounted rate of $8 plus tax per person, we require a minimum of 15 guests for a field trip reservation. Typical group size is 15-18 individuals, so if you are planning a visit for a group of 14 or fewer individuals, you are welcome to reserve on a public tour with other guests.
If you have a smaller group (14 individuals or fewer), but would prefer a private tour without other parties joining your group, you are welcome to schedule a Private Lemurs Live tour (option #2) for a flat fee of $125 plus tax.
The maximum group size we can typically accommodate at one time is 35 guests (this includes adults and children), and group of more than 18 guests will be split into two tour groups. We will schedule your group based on the number of guests you provide at the time of booking, and plan our tour guides accordingly. If you schedule for a field trip of 15, and arrive with 22, we most likely will not be able to accommodate that change in group size. Please check with our scheduling staff before making any changes to the total number of guests in your group.
As on all of our tours, for your safety and for the well-being of our lemurs, there will not be any opportunities to touch the animals at any time.
This tour is offered every day of the week (Monday-Sunday) and start-times are flexible. Tours generally last 60-90 minutes.
