  • can we buy $25 tickets there? where and how much just to see for 30 minutes ?

    Answer Report Abuse
    • The guided tour of Hearst Castle lasts for 60 minutes. I don't think the prices will be reduced if you are visiting just for 30 minutes. What you can see depends upon which tour you choose. After the tour, you can explore the gardens and visit the Roman and Neptune Pools all by yourself. For more information, you can visit the castle's official website or call on 1-800-444-7275.
