Weather permitting, tours are held Monday through Friday, except on certain holidays and during student breaks. Tour hours and frequency vary depending on the time of year:
*Tours can only enter the Basilica of the Sacred Heart from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. from Monday through Friday and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on Sundays.
Private tours for groups of 10 or more can be requested to meet your specific needs. Tour requests are subject to student tour guide availability. Tours may not be available during certain times due to limited tour guide availability or campus events. Your tour must be scheduled more than 10 days in advance, and one tour guide is required for every 25 people on the tour. There is a fee of $40 per tour guide.
