Enjoy exploring the Wildflower Center’s stunning gardens and unique architecture with an expert guide to show you the way. The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center is a top destination for Austin locals and visitors and boasts Texas’ largest collection of native plants in one spot for your viewing pleasure. A guided tour is a great way to get the most out of your experience here.

Guided tours are available daily from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. based on space availability. We assign one docent for every 15 people.


Guided tours are $75 for every 15 people plus $1 off regular admission per person. So:

  • 15 people or less = $75 plus admission for each person with 1 docent
  • 16 – 30 people = $150 plus admission for each person with 2 docents
  • 31 – 45 people = $225 plus admission for each person with 3 docents
  • And so on…

Here’s an example in practice: Let’s say you have a group of 5 people made up of 2 adults, 2 seniors and a 15-year-old. The price would be calculated as such:

  • $75 for the tour + $24 for two adult admissions ($12 each) + $20 for two seniors ($10 each) + $6 for the youth =  $125 total cost


Two weeks advance notice required.

Payments are accepted at the Admissions Kiosk when you arrive (we do not accept payment online at this time).

Coupons and member benefits (free admission) do not apply to Guided Tours.
