    We got excellent stories but we were not able to reserve on the spot as it is very demanded. Do it well in advance.  more »

    The first estate of Beverly Hills. Beautiful grounds, historic buildings, great place to bring visitors. Check the website for tour info.

    Exceptionally poor visitors policy – advance reservations required and their website says ideally two weeks in advance. Shame on them for not being open all the time to walk in visitors, or at least during certain times. As a Team Beverly Hills alum who cares about the community, shame on them for wasting a community asset. If it's not their choice -- if, say, it's a function of a conditional use permit then shame on the people who required advanced RSVPs. A huge waste of a great place.

    You have to have reservation to visit this place. After paying for visit (as I remembered it was less than $40 for 4) volunteer will give you a tour through the Villa and also two big Gardens. Everything was beautiful and well maintained. We had amazing time. Highly recommend to visit this place.
