Group Reservations

The Getty Villa is a great place to visit as a group. Groups of more than 15 people must make a group reservation—we can help you arrange a tour and suggest group dining options.

If you would like a free guided tour, please make reservations at least two weeks in advance. Tours are booked on a first-come, first-served basis.

Make a group reservation and reserve oversized-vehicle parking online, or by phone at (310) 440-7300. If you use this form you do not need to order Villa tickets as well.
