Behind the Scenes Tours at Biltmore Estate

Throughout the year, Meredith College Iris Society members receive exclusive invitations to events both on campus and at distinctive off-campus locations. These include opportunities to attend our unique Iris Society Behind the Scenes Tours. Each private tour event provides captivating and educational experiences from an insider’s view.

Our upcoming Behind the Scenes Tour will be at the Biltmore House in Asheville, North Carolina.*
