About Explorer Tours

Your tour will begin at the Visitor Centre, where you will be met by your tour guide.

Your guide will walk you down into the Biomes, sharing Eden’s history and mission along the way. Then your tour will continue around one of our Biomes: it's your choice – explore either the Rainforest or Mediterranean Biome, where your expert guide will share plant stories, give you insights into the exhibits, and answer your questions.

Tours last for 1.5 hours and will finish in the Link Building in between the Biomes.

Choose either an Early Rise tour starting at 9.30am or 10am (depending on the time of year) or an Afternoon Meander beginning at 2.30pm (off-peak only).
