On Saturday, October 1, 2011 the Hearst Castle Evening Tour Program will begin a new season. Visitors to the Castle will be able to experience evening reflections from the 1930′s heyday era.

On most Friday and Saturday evenings, from October 1st through December 30, 2011, Hearst Castle will feature the Living History Program that emphasizes the bygone lifestyle of this great estate. Docents in elegant vintage clothing will recreate the social life of Mr. Hearst's guests, lounging by the magnificent Neptune Pool or playing cards in the Assembly Room. Other docents portray household staff attending to the needs of Mr. Hearst's guests.

The evening progresses through one of the guest houses, Casa del Mar, and several of the large rooms on the ground floor and the upstairs guest suites of the main house, Casa Grande. The tour continues through the Main Library and Mr. Hearst's private Gothic Suite. Completing this magical tour with a walk over blue and gold Venetian-glass tiles of the breathtaking indoor Roman Pool, visitors to Hearst Castle will leave with long lasting memories of bygone nights at "The Enchanted Hill." Visitors should allow two hours and ten minutes for this tour. Evening Tour prices are $36 for adults and $18 for youths aged 5 through 12.
