“The Getty is a Must-See”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

The Getty is FREE!! (Well, the parking is $15 but well worth it). Every sight and attraction at the Getty is unforgettable. Be sure to pack your own lunch and wine and bring it to the garden! Such an amazing place to dine.

The views, from the paintings, the garden and the city were spectacular!

“Breathtaking”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

We were fed up with the hustle and bustle of LA and decided to visit the Getty Centre. The best by far of all the attractions we visited in LA. The architecture and the beautiful gardens were outstanding and the view magnificent. We travelled by bus from Hollywood Boulevard and had to change buses once. This took us about 1 1/2 hours but well worth it. It is all absolutely free and the guides are very helpful. We will definitely return if ever in LA again

Reviewed March 24, 2013

The Getty is huge and this is an ideal break point. Nothing special foodwise but more than adequate and good value.

“Must see”
Reviewed March 23, 2013 via mobile

The museum is gorgeous. The architecture and the external garden are stunning. The exhibitions are wonderful, there are audioguides available for free and guided tours. If you visit LA, you must visit the Getty Center
