Eden guided tours

Rainforest Biome

Explore the largest rainforest in captivity. Find out how rainforests keep us alive and how to help conserve them. Walk around the tropical rainforests of the world and tell you their secrets; you will come across a Malaysian garden, a cacao and rubber plantation and spices that changed the world.

Mediterranean Biome

Experience sights, scents and stories from the Mediterranean, South Africa and California. Take a journey from olive groves to flowers born of fire, heavenly scents to fallen gods, cowboys to cork, ancient cultures to new futures.

'Chocolate-flavoured' Rainforest tour

Cacao trees, the source of chocolate, originally grew wild in Central and Latin America. The Aztecs and Mayans liked their cocoa brewed up with spices – the original hot chocolate. Take a journey around our Rainforest finding out about its secrets from the tropical islands to the Amazon. Explore our smallholding of cacao trees where you will discover a deliciously dark tale of conquest, love and trade, then finally brew up a cup of the original hot chocolate Aztec style!

These private guided tours are led by our experienced Guides, who will lead you on a special 90-minute visit around either of our Biomes, sharing the best of the Eden Project, including fascinating information on our plants, exhibits and architecture.
