Group Tours

General admission discounts are available for groups of 15 or more in addition to an optional guided tour. We recommend allowing at least 1.5-2 hours to explore the Garden and visit The Garden Store. Group visits must be booked at least two weeks in advance. Custom tours which may include classes, wine tasting, activities and more are available by request and are subject to additional fees.
