These are escorted tours which last slightly less than an hour, with 35 minutes
spent on the Observation deck. You won't need anything on the Deck besides a
ticket-except perhaps a camera, binoculars or video recorder. You are asked
to leave behind everything else, including purses, camera bags, fanny packs,
and diaper bags. If you do not want to leave these items in your vehicle, you
can rent a locker at The Texas Union for $1.00. Due to safety concerns, umbrellas
are not permitted on the tour; however rain ponchos are available to rent for
$1.00 at the Information Center in the Texas Union. Please see the complete
Tour Guidelines, available at the Union Information Center, for further details.
