Tours/Docents

Touring Zilker Botanical Garden…it’s a Good Thing!

Enjoy a guided tour of the Zilker Botanical Garden to learn more about the plants, nature, and historic aspects of the Garden. Tours are led by volunteer Docents, and last between 1-1.5 hours, depending on the interest and questions of your group. They can also be tailored to a shorter time-frame if needed. Zilker is a fabulous outdoor classroom and the Zilker docents enjoy sharing their love of the gardens with school children and adults.

Guided Tours are offered Monday-Friday by appointment, for a fee of $75 per group of 15 people. Please email Michael DeWhatley at  michael.dewhatley@austintexas.gov to inquire about a specific date.
