Overview

Experience a true legend; the only one in the Caribbean - the British Airways G-BOAE Concorde affectionately known as Alpha Echo. Your tour is for an approximate 45 minutes to 1 hour which includes an awe-inspiring presentation titled "Engineered for Speed" and being able to board the aircraft where they watch another presentation onboard of the in-flight experience of Concorde. Your tour guide takes you around the facility and provides you with all of the relative facts and historic features on the Alpha Echo Concorde. If you are at the airport you can take a brief walk across to the taxi stand area and enter through the side gate for easier access to the facility from there. There is no audio or video recording allowed on tour but guests are allowed to take as many photographs as possible. Guests are required to lock their bags in the lockers provided and they are also required to keep the key for their specific locker until they have completed their tour. (please note that one locker should be used per person as there are numerous lockers available for use therefore there is no need for various guests to share)

Located right next to Grantley Adams Airport the Concorde Experience offers a really good look around one of the most famous passenger jets ever made. The guide was relaxed but really informative too. Highly recommended.

My husband and I took the tour today. He's an aviation enthusiast so he was thrilled. Although I'm not into planes, the tour was interesting even for me. Extremely informative and enthralling. Our guide Marsha was engaging and knowledgeable. Great great tour!
