Pricing *Changing May 1, 2019*

Starting May 1, we will be raising our prices for this tour and introducing a new “off-season” rate for our cold-weather tour path. Please see below for details.

May 1, 2019 – September 30, 2019 All guests, including chaperones (ages 3 and up) – $10 per person plus tax, with a minimum fee of $180 plus tax

*There will be a minimum fee of $180 plus tax for all field trip groups. Even if your total per-person fee is below $180, we will automatically charge that minimum rate. If you have a smaller group and would prefer to avoid the minimum rate, you are welcome to schedule your group on a public Lemurs Live tour.

October 1 – April 30 All guests, including chaperones (ages 3 and up) – $8 per person plus tax, with a minimum fee of $144 plus tax

*There will be a minimum fee of $144 plus tax for all field trip groups. Even if your total per-person fee is below $144, we will automatically charge that minimum rate. If you have a smaller group and would prefer to avoid the minimum rate, you are welcome to schedule your group on a public Lemurs Live tour (option #1).

The maximum group size we can typically accommodate at one time is 36 guests (this includes adults and children of all ages), and any 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 will plan our tour guides accordingly. 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.
