About Group Reservations and Tours
We encourage groups of more than 15 people to make a group reservation—we can help you arrange tours, activities, and group dining options. Group reservations are required for vehicles that seat 15 or more people. All visitors arriving by car at the Villa must be in possession of a timed, dated ticket.
Please cancel group tours at least 48 hours in advance of your reservation, since this affects our staffing schedule. Call Visitor Services at (310) 440-7300, Monday through Sunday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
