Personal Ranger Tours
The personal ranger tours are offered in addition to our regularly scheduled free programs, walks, and talks, and focus on a specific topic or area.
The advantage of the fee tour is a guarantee of a personal tour at a given time and place for a specific group or family. Personal tours are available on a wide variety of topics related to park resources.
Transportation is not provided for the tour group, and usually does not include trips on backcountry roads, nor is this a general tour of the park. If you are interested in a general tour of the park, contact Far Flung Outdoor Center at 1-800-839-7238 for jeep tours, or Big Bend Resorts and Adventures at 1-800-848-2363 for a variety of tour options in the park.
These personal tours are highly dependent on staff availability; therefore, advance arrangements of at least two weeks are required. For more information call the Division of Interpretation and Visitor Services at 432-477-2802 or email for more information or to check on availability of a given ranger tour.
