To accommodate families or small business groups, Edison and Ford Winter Estates is offering private guided tours. The tours are for small groups of nine people or less and ensure that families will not be on a tour with other tourists. Two tour focus options are available, including the Historian-led Private Guided Tour and the Private Garden Tour with a Horticulturist. Masks are required on guided tours.

“Private tours offer individualized attention and an opportunity for families to get out and explore without being on a tour with other tourists,” Vice President of Interpretation Mike Cosden said. “The content of these tours can also be tailored to the particular interests of the family or group.”

Visitors will see the historic winter homes of Thomas Edison and Henry Ford, the caretaker’s houses, swimming pool complex, Edison’s study and the Moonlight Garden, and over 20 acres of botanical gardens. The Garden Tour provides an in-depth exploration of the hundreds of plants and trees on the property. Afterward, visitors may take extra time to stroll the gardens, museum and botanic research laboratory at their own pace.

The cost for the Private Guided Tour is $345 and the Private Garden Tour is $360.

Private tours should be reserved at least 48 hours in advance.
