Guides / Tours

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 the Garden is exclusively done by our own Garden Tomb guides unless we cannot provide a guide who speaks the group’s language. In such a case the group may be guided by their local licensed guide. Alternatively, you may request in advance to have one of our guides conduct the tour via 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.

Making a Group Booking

Bookings should be made via our online booking system. If that is not possible you can also contact us by email (, by phone (02-539-8100), or by fax (02-627-2742); if by fax then it is essential that you include a fax number or e-mail address, so that we can send our confirmation to you. 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.

Before making a booking, please make certain you have the information we will need:

Guide / Company Info
  • Guide's Name
  • Guide's Cell Phone Number
  • Company's Name
  • Company's Telephone Number
Group Info
  • Group's Name
  • Number of Guests
  • Language
  • Is Translation Needed?
  • Requested Date of Visit
  • Requested Time of Visit
Communion / Meeting Info
  • Tour Only?
  • Tour and Communion?
  • Tour and a Meeting?

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): 8:30-11:30 & 14:00-17:00.

If your group wishes to have a tour and a time of worship afterwards, booking times are slightly more restricted.

We look forward to welcoming your group!
