Tours Requiring Reservations
School Field Trips or Other Organized Groups
If you are an accredited school visiting the park for educational purposes, you are eligible for an Educational Entrance Fee Waiver. If this is your school's first time visiting the park, contact the Education Ranger to see if you need to submit an application. If you are another type of organized group (i.e. scouts, clubs) you are welcome to visit and arrange a special program but the normal entrance fees of $3 per person over 16 years of age apply.
Ranger-guided programs are free, but require pre-arrangement at least two weeks in advance. For more details on ranger programs both guided and self-guided and how to set up a field trip, visit our For Teachers page.
Calabasas and Guevavi Mission Tours

Tours are offered on Saturdays from January through March for $25/person. Check out the Guided Tours page for additional details and to make reservations.
Did You Know?
Construction of the Franciscan church at Tumacácori took place from about 1800 through the early 1820s. Due to lack of funds, the plans for the structure not only had to be modified, the building was never finished.
