We are delighted to announce that we have now resumed our programme of travel to discover gardens and wildlife in exceptional destinations. Since spring 2022, we have led very successful tours in France, Italy and Morocco. We look forward with anticipation to expanding the programme as the year progresses.
This year, we are offering exclusively bespoke tours for private groups. With some 25 years’ experience in the field, we are ready to organise travel to a range of destinations according to your special interests, from botany to wildlife. Our extensive network of contacts, and openness to discover the new and the unexpected, allow us to meet – and even exceed – your requirements.
At Susan Worner Tours, we make every effort to fulfil our clients’ expectations. Tours are planned with meticulous attention to detail, often including special touches to make the experience that little bit special. Accommodation is to a very high standard, and travel can be arranged according to your specific requirements.
We look forward to travelling with you again in the year ahead to discover gardens, flora and fauna among landscapes of outstanding interest and beauty.
