Bigliettaia: “Would you like to take part to a guided tour? There’s one every hour.”
Scotty: “No thanks, we prefer to visit it alone.”

Ce n’è = ce ne è = c’è + ne
Ne corresponds more or less to “of it / them” in English. In this case it refers to the guided tours mentioned before.
When we indicate the quantity of a whole (uno, due, un paio, alcuni,…) we always have to add ne.

Esempi:
Le mele sembrano deliziose. Ne vorrei due. (not: *Vorrei due). The apples look delicious. I’d like two (of them).
Mi piacciono queste magliette. Ne compro una. (not: *Vorrei una). I like these T-shirts. I’ll buy one (of them)
Organizziamo visite turistiche. Ce n‘è una ogni ora. (not: *C’è una ogni ora). We organize guided tours. There’s one (of them) every hour.
