  1. My family and I are planning to have a garden tour this coming 2013. And I would like to know if how much time is needed to complete the tour. Please e-mail me so I am updated on this. Thanks..

    1. Hello,
      Thanks for the question! Someone from Group Tours should be emailing you shortly, but for others, you may want to visit our Tram Tours page for information on the 35-minute tours.
      Because the Chicago Botanic Garden is 385 acres, you may want to also allow time to walk around. You could spend 2-8 hours walking through the 24 display gardens, including three greenhouses. We also have indoor exhibitions in the Plant Science Center and Regenstein Center as well as a Garden Cafe for refreshments and a Garden Shop for a great selection of gifts. Hope you enjoy your visit!
