Our Reservation Policy has been updated. Please review the policy to ensure you have the best possible experience:
Our commitment is to continue offering each person the opportunity to attend and experience the joy of our outdoor night-time walking tour each year for FREE. The tour follows a lighted path over gently rolling terrain and will last approximately one hour. In order to facilitate as many people as possible during this week, we will adhere and enforce the following reservation procedures.
Reservations are encouraged for your convenience. Walk-in availability is limited. Reservations may be made by visiting reservations page. When registering, please have a primary and secondary choice for date and time. In an effort to assure you have the optimal experience, we are limiting our groups to no more than 40 (with the exception of the last tour at 8:45 Sunday through Thursday and 9:00 on Friday and Saturday nights which are walk-in times). Groups are limited to no more than 40 leaving every 15 minutes. If you are making a reservation for more than 40 people you must divide the group and put in another tour. For anyone making a reservation in advance, you can be confident your group won’t exceed the maximum number recommended for the ideal experience. For those not making a reservation, walk-ins are welcome and will be assigned the next available tour with less than 40 people or 7:30 with only 40 people and the last tour of the night at 8:45 Sunday through Thursday and 9:00 on Friday and Saturday nights. Walk-ins must be at the tent before 8:30 Sunday through Thursday and 8:45 Friday and Saturday. We cannot guarantee how many will be in these walk-in groups. Based on years past, it could be as many as 100 or more. While you do get to experience the same entire walk through, you may not be able to see or hear as well as we would like. The 8:45 time Sunday through Monday and the 9:00 time on Friday and Saturday nights are the only times that may have over 40 in the group. We CAN NOT add you to the next tour out if it already has 40 people in it except for 8:45 and 9:00. At each of the 6:00, 7:00, and 8:00 p.m. tours, a limited number of seats will be available on a golf cart provided by An Eclectic Ministry for those guests with limited mobility. NO ONE MAY UTILIZE THEIR PERSONAL WHEEL CHAIR, MOTORIZED VEHICLE, OR ANY DEVICE WHICH WILL SLOW DOWN THE TOUR OR ENDANGER OTHER GUESTS. YOU MUST CALL 334.578.4846 TO RESERVE A SEAT ON THE GOLF CART.
We remind you that this is an outdoor night-time walking tour. Please dress appropriately for the weather. Admission is free, donations will be accepted and appreciated to help with expenses. If you make a reservation and are unable to attend, or if you determine you will have less than you made reservations for, please call 334.578.4846 and let us know to cancel or change your reservation.
Please note that we normally have walk-ins waiting for the next available tour with less than 40 persons. We are also on a very strict time schedule and each tour must leave on time. To confirm your reservation, you must be here at least 15 minutes prior to your reserved departure time. Otherwise, your reservation will be given to walk-ins to maximize the number of persons who can enjoy the tour.
Due to inclement weather conditions, the Board may determine to cancel a night or a part of a night. An attempt will be made to contact the person who made the reservation as soon as possible. While we understand your disappointment, we cannot place you in another group that already has 40 people. You may decide to be a walk-in but you must follow the above procedure for walk-ins. Walk-ins are handled on a first-come first-served basis.
Reservations begin October 1st and may be made on the Reservations page.
