If you have a group that wants a tour of any site that I have done in the past or present, then see the RATES page.  For non-profits, tours are low cost but you need to provide the bus unless it is walking.  For other groups, tour leader will be paid and transportation is needed unless it is walking.  I can change the trip to suit the group.  There are many possible stops to take on the tour.
