Tour information

 

All of our facilities have attained the prestigious Baby-Friendly designation and we invite you to come for a visit. Our tours are free of charge, but we ask that you register in advance so we can keep the group size small. A small group size allows you to ask all your questions and enables our tour guides to offer you personal attention.
We look forward to meeting you!
