Meet Carla, our expert tour guide
Having been part of the team since Eden opened 11 years ago, Carla Wentink has watched the development and journeys of many projects and can offer a wealth of knowledge on all things related to the Project. Her expertise has grown alongside the Eden Project, meaning visitors can ask her about pretty much anything related to the place!
She says: 'I try to find out where their interests lie and add something to their Eden experience. I always like to find something I wouldn’t show or tell anyone else and create a ‘wow’ moment for each of my private guided tours.'
With her theatre background Carla uses the tours to connect the visitors to Eden through stories and dialogue. She aims to help you to discover the links you already hold with Eden through your interests and background.
She says: 'I like to put on the cloak of a the tour guide and involve the visitors in a story; perhaps that’s why I love it so much.'
Give a tour as a gift
The tours make a perfect and unique gift for someone special – an experience to be treasured and remembered for years to come. After hearing about the buzz of Eden keen gardener, Julie Kerley took her sister on a chocolate and chilli tour for her 50th birthday.
Julie said: 'Our chocolate and chilli tour was brilliant! Our guide Carla was great, very knowledgeable and I must say every question of ours she would answer. We finished up making our own chocolate drink from a chocolate bean; it was a great experience.'
