The tour will begin via trams and you will be driven around the property where you will see the unique cactus gardens and outdoor features. The trams will then take you to the Castle where you’ll have an opportunity to go back in time and learn about the man inspired to build the castle and the people that made it their home. The tour will conclude in the visitor center & is approximately 2 hours.
