LARGE GROUPS OR SCHOOL TOURS.
We offer large group (10+) and private tours for homeschool groups, universities, colleges, and more. There is a minimum charge of $70.00, to cover a minimum of 10 people. We also ask for a two-week turnaround to allow for the arrangement of our special docents.
We offer two different options for tours.
You can choose our traditional Docent-led Boardwalk Tour. A docent will lead you and your group around the dinosaur trackways through the Cretaceous Garden and along our aerial walkway on this tour. Docents discuss the history, geology, and details about the unique dinosaurs that roamed the Texas Hill Country.
Fossil Ridge Tour
Or, you can choose our more adventurous tour. The tour is docent-led and offers a guided tour of the different types of fossils hidden in the Texas Hill Country. Groups or parties will travel up the mountain and learn about the different types of fossils, rocks, and Cretaceous creatures that once roamed the area. Each person on tour is allowed to take 1 fossil home!
We also offer this to smaller groups on the third Saturday of each month. Please see the Events Calendar for the date and the ticket purchase. Please do not submit an inquiry if you are a group smaller than 10.
The dinosaurs that walked along algae-covered mud flats left deep footprints. Those tracks were subsequently filled in and covered by sediments, thousands of feet thick. Mineral-rich water seeping into the mud, along with heat and pressure of the overburden gradually turned them to stone. See model dinosaurs and hundreds of real tracks!
