Group Tours at Olana

Olana’s Group Tours are an ideal way to experience the site for parties of 20 or more. We offer three tiers of options considering duration on site, depth of content, and point of price. Each tour considers aspects of Frederic Church’s designed landscape and views, Olana’s mission and role in viewshed protection, and tour of the Main House. We limit groups to 2 a day, and recommend a minimum of 3 months advanced booking. Please be aware that group tours are scheduled between 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM or 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM. We also recommend arriving 30 minutes prior to your tour start time. NOTE: if you are reserving for a school group, please consider our Field Trip options instead.

    Once your request is received, we will follow up via e-mail to discuss important details regarding your visit. Please provide a valid e-mail address for your Tour Organizer.

    Preferably, a cell phone that the group leader will have with them the day of the tour.

    If you have persons requiring the use of our lift to access the main floor of the house, please provide the total number. The lift holds one person at a time, so we need to allow 3-5 minutes of lead time before the tour for each person requiring use of the lift. The dimensions of the lift are 33 inches wide and 46 inches deep and it is limited to a 600-pound maximum. Please keep in mind that In-Depth OLANA and The OLANA Experience may access the second floor, which is not ADA accessible. With advance notice, alternative accommodations may be made for guests who are unable to access this floor.

    While service dogs are welcome at Olana, they may only be permitted as defined by the ADA. Emotional support or therapy animals of any kind are not permitted. Service dogs must be well behaved and under control at all times.
