–Hearst Castle’s most popular tours: Grand Rooms, Upstairs Suites, and Cottages and Kitchens tours will all be enhanced with 20 additional minutes of guided tour time beginning Nov. 2.
The extended guided tour time will include insights and views into the outdoor areas of the estate as well as a longer visit inside the buildings. The tour routes have also been revised to make the outdoor stairs easier to negotiate.
“The public has asked for more time for their tours so they can be more fully immersed in the history and gardens of spectacular Hearst Castle, and we are glad to respond said Acting San Luis Obispo Coast District Superintendent Brooke Gutierrez. “Our guides are thrilled to have more time to share their enthusiasm and knowledge with the public.”
The pricing for these tours has not changed. Advance tour reservations are very strongly recommended and may be made at www.HearstCastle.org or (800) 444-4445.
