If you are planning to see the gardens you must get a guided tour (which is free). There is no other way to see the upper garden. The queue for this can last some time and there is a rather misleading sign placed about 8 feet away from the main queue saying that the tours leave from that location (rather than the gate nearby)

The shrine is only possible to visit between the hours of 09.00 - 12.00 but it is well worth a visit. The architect planned for the shrine and the gardens to be 'like a diamond set within a ring' and they are certainly amazing.

Visited the Gardens in Haifa. Get the train into Haifa & get off at Haifa HaShomona station. We took a cab to the top but were too late for English tour by 3 mins. We had to do the tour in Hebrew. You can't visit the gardens unless via a tour. Breathtaking and so well worth waiting to see. Everyone should visit the Gardens

Beautiful visual site along these terraced well manicured gardens. It is UNESCO World Heritage Site. The tomb is spectacular as well with ornamental gold work and flowers. The gardens it what made this a wonderful experience for us in Haifa.

This huge garden surrounds the shrine of Bahá’u’lláh the founder of the Bahai religion.
Everything is so immaculately kept that it is almost surreal. These gardens have a special mention in UNESCO's world heritage list and it is easy to see why large flocks of visitors arrive every year. It is a "must see" place when in Akko / Acre.

These are very beautiful and well manicured formal gardens located in Haifa the largest town in the north of Israel.
From different spots in the gardens there are nice views of the city and the bay.
It is recommended to book a tour as not always they allow access to the whole garden.
