May 14-26, 2017

This is a special invitation to join us on a wonderful journey to visit Gardens of Amsterdam, London and Kent. Yes, we not only see the incredible gardens in the County of Kent, but we spend three days in Amsterdam, and five days in London--including the Chelsea Flower Show!

These are places you've read about and seen in magazines--places like Sissinghurst, Great Dixter, Kew, and Hampton Court. But there's much more! We will also visit private gardens not usually open to the public where you'll be able to talk with the owners and explore their "backyards."

Highlights of the tour include: Keukenhof Bulb Gardens, the Chelsea Flower Show, Hampton Court Palace, Hever Castle, Chartwell, Great Dixter, Wisley, Chiswick House, Windsor Castle, Penshurst, Kew, Pashley, and much more! Click on 'Itinerary' on the left to see a more detailed outline of our trip.

We are your hosts for this fantastic journey. As college professors, we have been teaching landscape design and lecturing on the history of gardens for over 30 years. We have planned every detail of the trip to make certain that it will be more than memorable.

This is the trip you’ve dreamed about taking. The dates are May 14-26, 2017, and the cost is $5350 per person (double occupancy). This includes airfare from Washington Dulles to Amsterdam, then to London and finally returning to Washington. It also includes all lodging, all tour guides, all entrance fees, all ground transportation, all breakfasts, two lunches and three dinners. The only things not covered are some lunches and dinners, and a tip for our driver and guides.

This is a great trip! It has everything a garden lover could want--private gardens in Amsterdam and in the English countryside, great botanic gardens, royal gardens and so much more. Don't miss this rare opportunity. Remember to sign up early because space is limited!
