Reserved Tour Packages

We offer groups a variety of guided tour experiences to choose from.  Options include walking tours (Aga Khan Garden or Kurimoto Japanese Garden), or tram tours that include views of the Aga Khan Garden, the Collections areas, and the Patrick Seymour Alpine Garden, with stops along the way to smell the flowers. You can select one or more options to create an experience that is just right for your group. Reserved tours include admission to the Garden for the day, guides, trams (if tram tours are chosen), and a reserved lunch/eating space, including rain backup, for an hour after the tour.

Our Tours Team can help you design a fabulous day at the Garden for your group.

Reserved group tours must be booked a minimum of two weeks in advance, though earlier booking is recommended.
