What's a trickle tour?  It's where Modernist fans visit a new or newly remodeled - unoccupied - Modernist house at a trickle of the normal rate, dramatically reducing the number of people.  By using timed admission, there will be only 4-6 people in each house at any given time, usually less.  Plus there's greater flexibility in selecting a tour time and ticket price. Participants must wear masks while onsite and maintain a minimum six-foot distance with event staff and other participants.
