We would very much like your tour group to have a quality experience at the Garden. For this reason, all groups who wish to visit the Garden must be booked in advance.
It is essential that your group arrives at the time arranged, otherwise you may find yourselves unable to visit the Garden - especially at busy times!
There is no charge for entry to the Garden Tomb nor for communion. We therefore depend on the gifts of our visitors to support the maintenance and ministry of the Garden. If your group is allocated a meeting place after your tour, a basket will be provided on your communion table for this purpose. Alternatively, for those coming for a tour only, there are gift boxes located near the entrance and exit.
Guiding in English may only be done by our own Garden Tomb guides.
Groups not speaking English may be guided by their local licensed guide. Alternatively, you may request to have one of our guides conduct the tour with translation.
If your group is being shown round the Garden by one of our own guides you may make use of the guides room we have provided. Coffee and tea service is complimentary.
Bookings are normally made by fax (02-627-2742) or telephone (02-627-2745). Alternatively, we have an on-line booking form available on this website, which once completed will be automatically faxed through to us. It is essential though if you use this method that you include a fax number, so that we can send our confirmation to you by fax. During peak tourist times we recommend that bookings be made two to three months in advance. If you are booking for a very large group (in excess of 100), it is advisable to make the booking as early as possible.
If your group wants to have a tour only (with no meeting afterwards), group bookings can be made on or between the following times (on the half hours): 9:00-11:00 & 14:00-17:00.
If your group wishes to have a tour and a time of worship afterwards, booking times are slightly more restricted: 9:00-11:00 & 14:00-16:30.
Please note though that 11.00 and 16.30 are only possible for small groups. Larger groups need to arrange an earlier time if they wish to have communion.
We look forward to welcoming your group!
