One hour harbour tour pricing

Standard Tour: £148

On our Standard Educational Tour, you can have a commentary by the skipper or crew. Skippers and crew who give commentaries are knowledgeable about the history of the harbour and its regeneration, and you will get an informative and interesting talk as you explore Bristol Harbour on your hour-long tour.

 

EXTRA Tour: £170 Popular choice for GCSE Geography

If you want a more in-depth tour with a dedicated presenter who has studied the GCSE Geography curriculum you will need to book an ‘Extra’ tour. If you choose the ‘Extra’ Tour, you will be sent relevant curriculum-related resources such as a map of developments, surveys, and a student workbook. These can be used to prepare the class, during the field trip, and to follow up learning after the visit.
