Private Group Tours

Effective March 14, 2020, all parks venues are closed to the public until further notice. Private group tours will resume after the parks reopen.  Particular arrangements remain to be determined.

A private tour can be arranged for a group on a particular time schedule that wants to be guided by a trained docent. Tour groups traveling on their own bus make use of this option. Other groups – family, corporate, organization – that want to be together may also find this attractive. Each group of 25 people or less will have a docent meet them at the venue and provide a historic tour for the specified time and tailored to particular interests of the group. If the group visits more than one venue a new docent will meet them at each location at a specified time. Each venue visit is considered a Group Tour. This service can be provided at each of the historic parks venues in Sonoma and Petaluma. Free parking is available at each venue.

There are two charges for these tours:

  • A donation of $50.00 for each Group Tour, payable by check made out to Sonoma Petaluma Parks, Inc. must be submitted with the Private Tour application in order to secure a reservation.
  • At the time of the visit each person over age 17 must pay a State Park entry fee of $3.00. This fee allows you to visit all parks venues on that day.
