Matching School Curriculum: 4-4.5 Hours
By Daily Participants Or Average Over Several Days.
Our larger schools are bringing 5 classes over 5 days averaging 30 students for each class.
Prices are funded through our general tourism activities and are generally below the price of rentals so we do not list them online: Call for pricing.
