Private Tour Request


This is a private version of our foraging tour, which we can customize for your group. Please request a date and we will call to confirm within 48 hours.

Tours are suitable for all ages and abilities.  You decide:

• whether you come to us or we come to you- we offer a “home inventory” service to show you what’s growing in your own yard!
• whether we take a longer hike, go for views, or visit a waterfall or swimming hole
• how much time we spend together (usually three hours)
• how much fun vs. detailed information we focus on
• whether we focus on mushrooms, plants, or both

Keep in mind that aside from the above options, if your party is less than six people, a private tour is usually only preferable if you are already at an intermediate level or otherwise require special attention. Otherwise, a larger group tends to make for a livelier tour — plus we find more!


  • Tours start at $450 for 1-6 adults. Additional adults or children are $75 and $30 each, respectively. Children four and under are free.
