Amazing tour of the grand rooms. Paid when we arrived but we had to wait over an hour for an available tour. Have us time to go and watch the film in the theatre before giving us a bit of background info. Bus up had...More
Driving down Highway 1 and looking for some way to break up your day? Stop here. That's what we did. It's something to do.

Hearst Castle Tours can be challenging to those with mobility issues, but the State Parks staff are very accommodating during the ADA tour - using a golf cart and in small groups. The grounds of the castle are gorgeous and quite large, this tour made...More

I wasn’t sure whether I would enjoy this trip to Hearst Castle. I was on my way from San Francisco to San Luis Obispo and decided to stay in San Simeon for a night. I was so glad I decided to take a little extra...More
If you are going up or down the coast of California then this is a must see. Make sure to get a reservation ahead of time and see the movie before your tour. The docents are amazing with their knowledge.
