Bubble Garden Tours and Garden Ethnobotanical Tours!
Every Monday (except bank holidays when we are open for usual visits), Andromeda will only be open for guided Bubble Tours of up to 15 people.
The standard tour is excellent with great insights. The ethnobotanical tour concentrates on the ethnobotanical value of many plants and will be educational, fun and perhaps a bit surprising!
There is a set fee per tour of BD$200, whether your bubble is 2 people or 15, payable by card in advance.
Tours will take place on Mondays only at 9am, 11.30am and 3pm.
Each tour lasts approximately 1 1/2-2 hours.
Bring a picnic, if you wish, for after the tour and relax.
To book, please email Sharon email@example.com with the main telephone number and payment will be made over the phone. Alternatively payment can be made using online banking.
