Meet Filoli


Located 30 miles south of San Francisco, Filoli is nestled on a slope of the Santa Cruz Mountains and surrounded by more than 23,000 acres of the protected Peninsula watershed. To the two families who lived here, Filoli represented a desire to create a magnificent and enduring country estate. The first owner William Bourn dubbed it Filoli (pronounced "Fie-low-lee"), a made-up word drawn from the first letters of his personal motto: "FIght for a just cause; LOve your fellow man; LIve a good life. Come explore with us!

My five stars are for the enthusiasm and knowledge of the guides, who clearly know a lot and love their garden. I would strongly suggest that they work on camerawork and on regularly checking the signal for future tours. The camera was jittery enough that it was the first-ever Heygo tour where I felt a bit motion-sick, and the signal was weak enough that I regularly had to try to reload in hopes of being able to clearly see the flowers. I hope that they are able to resolve these issues as I would love to take more tours in this garden.
