    Good morning
    We are planning a visit Dec 29th or 30th.
    Can you tell me how long a self guided tour takes and how long a staff guided tour takes approximately.
    How often do the guided tours leave?
    The Holiday Lights portion of the tour, is this an extra fee per person? Can you provide me with more details.
    Thank you

    Please allow a minimum of 2.5 hours for your visit, including the tour of the Edison and Ford estates and the museum and lab. Guided tours begin at 10:00 a.m. and run at the top of each hour, with the last tour of the day beginning at 4:00 p.m. If you come for a tour during the day and wish to stay for Holiday Nights, there is a “combo” ticket for an additional $5 per person (added on to the regular price of $20 for the self-guided or $25 for the guided tour).
