Guided Tours

The Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens is delighted to offer Guided Garden Tours, available seven days a week. Tours are led by our dedicated garden guides, who receive yearly, in-depth training for seasonal garden highlight tours as well as specialized tours.

All tours last approximately 45 minutes to one hour. Garden highlight tours should be scheduled at least two weeks in advance. Specialized tours on topics such as Alabama’s Amazing Biodiversity, our Fern Glade, Japanese Garden, or other special requests, should be scheduled at least four weeks in advance.

For information about tour costs and scheduling, please contact

Proceeds from tours support the ongoing stewardship and enhancement of the Gardens, educational programs, and outreach activities.

Group Tour Policy

For all group tours, a non-refundable deposit of $25 is required at time of booking. A group tour may be rescheduled to another date at least 10 business days prior to the scheduled tour. Tours are held rain or shine. We reserve the right to reschedule group tours due to extreme weather conditions for your safety and the safety of staff and volunteers.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Gardens!
