I would suggest something more casual than “two weeks notice”. Something like “Please ask well in advance of your visit so someone will be available to show you around." “Tour” is also pretty formal. It makes me feel like a museum with guards. "A visit will require preparation on our part and 30-60 minutes to show you the facilities and answer questions. Please ask well in advance of your visit so someone can arrange to be available and prepared.” Saying things like “we are not a side show” or something similar just confirms that someone thinks you are and there is a need to deny it. I was in a doctor’s office last week in which all the magazines had a sticker that said “Do not remove from the waiting area. Patient use only.” Even after a good medical consultation, I'm still wondering if I want to go back. Do I want to go to a place where people steal so many magazines that it is a problem, or a place that attracts people who steal magazines, or a place that is afraid of people stealing their magazines. The focus becomes a medical practice that believes it has to protect itself from patients, rather than a place that welcomes patients and considers them (on the whole) to be socially responsible.
