Private Walking Tours
A Green-Wood guide will lead your group by foot on a tour that tells the story of this magnificent landmark and the fascinating people interred here. Private walking tours last approximately 90 minutes and accommodate 25 people maximum. They are available on weekdays (Monday-Friday) for $300 and weekends (Saturday-Sunday) for $400.
Please note: Due to the coronavirus pandemic, trolley tours are suspended until further notice.
Reservations must be made using the form below no less than two weeks in advance of the requested visit date. We recommend having an alternate date in case your preferred date is unavailable.
Independent tour leaders and organizers are welcome to bring their own group through the grounds, provided they register with Green-Wood in advance. There is a $5 fee for each group member, payable by credit card, which assists The Green-Wood Historic Fund in its ongoing preservation and restoration efforts.
Green-Wood reviews each request, based on the guide’s qualifications and references. For tours that focus on Green-Wood’s wildlife, including birding, we take extra precautions because, sadly, some guides employ unscrupulous and harmful practices. Our objective is to ensure the qualifications of each guide and have confidence they will do no harm to Green-Wood’s wildlife and its environment.
An appointment is required for all self-guided groups, regardless of type or size, and it must be made no less than one week in advance.
Please fill out the form below to request an appointment. A separate form must be submitted for each visit, and we will do our best to accommodate your request(s).
Due to high volume, your visit is not confirmed until you have received a confirmation email. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
