Tour guides give tours of the House - introducing visitors to Frederic Church and his family, the Hudson River School, and the marvelous collection of art and objects that fill each room. This is a fun way to share what you love about Olana as well as expand your knowledge about its history. Tour guides are extensively trained and some background reading is required.
As a tour guide, you'll receive 40 hours of training where you'll be shadowing other people's tours and learning all there is to know before you guide tours independently.
