We arrange tailor-made tours for small groups of friends or colleagues (minimum six people) wishing to travel together to a special destination or for specialist horticultural groups.
We have the experience, know the good hotels and the best itineraries to offer.
Focusing on two of northern Italy’s most beautiful lakes, this exceptional journey is led by a Swiss botanist, with visits to outstanding gardens of classic Renaissance and later Italian style that are filled with masses of colour in spring, along with the famed Eisenhut Botanical Garden and nursery in Switzerland. We stay in attractive and stylish lakeside hotels with long views to the mountains.
Visits to little-known gardens of Venice, well off the main tourist trail, are complemented by an exploration of the quieter islands, with their private estates and market gardens, during a day out in the lagoon in a traditional “Bragozzo” boat. On the mainland, we visit the UNESCO-recognized Orto Botanico of Padua, established in the 16th century as a pioneering university botanical garden.
We would like to convey our heartfelt concern and support for the people of Morocco following Friday’s earthquake. Many of you have travelled with us through the area most affected and have been so impressed by the beauty and grandeur of the country’s landscape and gardens, matched only by the kindness and warmth of the people.
We can confirm that Hassan, our guide in the mountains, and his family are safe, as are our driver Adil and his family. We await news of our guide in Marrakech, Hafid. Our thoughts are with them all.
