Tours at the Botanical Garden

Garden Tours are walk­ing tours of the State Botanical Garden of Georgia. Tours last approx­i­mately one and a half hours and are led by expe­ri­enced tour guides. There is a $5 per per­son fee with a min­i­mum of 10 per­sons. Guided tours are avai­l­able by reser­va­tion only.

Online reser­va­tions require a deposit of $20 at time of reser­va­tion. Online reser­va­tions can be made up to one year in advance.

A Walk on the Wild Side

This tour is for both flora and fauna lovers. From birds and bees to Blue­bells and Bloo­d­root, this walk through the Shade and Native Flora Gar­dens is dif­fer­ent each time. This tour is a great option for bird­ers, as it focuses on one of the gar­dens that made us an Impor­tant Bird Area accord­ing to the Georgia Audubon Soci­ety.

Gardens in Bloom

The State Botanical Garden is a large place, but you won't miss out on any of the bright and beau­ti­ful flow­ers thanks to this tour. The tour route focuses on the Flower Garden and Inter­na­tio­nal Garden, but may ven­ture out to other areas of the Garden that are espe­cially beau­ti­ful dur­ing your visit.

Garden Sampler

If you have never had a tour of the State Botanical Garden, the Garden Sam­pler tour is a good one for you. Take a stroll through the Trop­i­cal Col­lec­tion in our Conser­va­tory, see gar­dens from dif­fer­ent cul­tures in our Inter­na­tio­nal Garden and see the beauty of a for­mal South­ern Garden in our Her­i­tage Garden.

Edible Gardening

Do you want to learn about edi­ble plants you can grow in your own yard? If so, then this is the tour for you. Fea­tured stops in this tour are our Herb and Physic Garden, a Garden based on Monas­tic Gar­dens of old; The Mediter­ranean Sec­tion of our Inter­na­tio­nal Garden; and the Crop areas of our Her­i­tage Garden, which shows how for­mal gar­dens can include tra­di­tio­nal har­vest crops.
