Custom Tour - Iconic English Gardens & Chelsea Flower Show 

"Terry and Rebecca led us on a wonderful custom tour of English gardens in May, 2017. They made all the arrangements for tickets, special openings, hotels, restaurants and transportation. They made suggestions when we began planning, but they took almost all the work out of it by giving us detailed itineraries which they adjusted as we reviewed them. All their hotels, B&B's and inns were fabulous! They also were able to get us tickets for the opening day of the Chelsea Flower show. Highclere Castle of Downton Abbey fame was also added to the schedule by request. We visited Royal Historical Society Wisley Garden, Sissinghurst Castle Carden, Great Dixter House and Garden, Iford Manor and Peto Gardens, the University of Oxford Botanical Garden, Broughton Grange. Along the way we saw Stonehenge and the city of Bath, both UNESCO World Heritge sites, as well as the wonders of Oxford. They picked out fabulous restaurants, were prepared for every eventuality, dealt with every unexpected problem with perfect aplomb and were wonderful, informative company throughout. We would be happy to discuss our experience with anyone considering working with Terry and Rebcecca in the future. Bravo for a job VERY well done!"                                                                               - Suzy K. from Florida

Italian Lakes Tour 
I highly recommend tours by  GARDEN EXPEDITIONS, I will be going on my third tour with them at the end of May.
Accommodations and attractions never disappoint.
Rebecca and Terry think of everything. 
I like the fact that they are small groups and  we have our own transportation.
Looking forward to my next trip with them!                                    - Isabelle P. from Huntington 

Cuba                                                                                            

My 24 year old son and I did not know what to expect; going to visit Cuba on a tour with experienced garden lovers was surely outside the box for us but we are adventurers at heart, so away we went!  From start to finish our trip was filled with fun, flora, facts and flowing rivers of RUM! It is hard to imagine that with such an eclectic group, ranging in a variety of ages, that fun could be had by all but it truly WAS an adventure to remember. Garden Expeditions anticipated all our needs and worked hard to make sure we were well taken care of, our tour guide and driver were exceptional as well. We wouldn’t have wanted to see Cuba any other way or with any other group!  Thank you Garden Expeditions!!

Gardens of England & Chelsea Flower Show Tour 

Italian Lakes Tour 

My trips with Garden Expeditions to England and Italy were perfect combinations of active and relaxing.  The groups were just the right size, small enough so that personal attention was never a problem. The varied activities ranged from spectacular gardens to specialized food and wine samplings to cultural sites to scenic hikes, with plenty of time to explore and shop on one's own. Terry and Rebecca provided friendly, well-informed guides and went the extra mile to ensure our comfort and safety and top-notch accommodations. I can't imagine a better opportunity to explore the world than doing so with Garden Expeditions!"
