The outstanding parts of the program were the places we went, the things that we learned, the group leader Chris Brangwin, who guided us, and the expertise shared by Jane Longland. AND the opportunity to attend the Chelsea Flower Show. The program was filled with unique opportunities to visit gardens, view landscape designs, and tour English towns and countrysides with enthusiastic fellow travelers. 100% a great program.

I spent 6 days in London prior to joining the Road Scholar tour. Visiting the magnificent gardens and travelling through the charming English countryside provided a sharp contrast to the urban landscape I saw in London. My eyes felt so rested from feasting on all that lushness! We could not have had a more competent and welcoming group leader, or a more interesting and knowledgeable instructor. My fellow travellers were also wonderful. I felt both intellectually stimulated and physically invigorated.

A wonderful experience enhanced by the careful guidance of Chris Brangwyn, the inspiring knowledge of Jane Longland, excellent logistics, appropriate pacing, and --suprise -- glorious weather. A gardener's dream.

Whether you garden or not, you will gain a good appreciation of the hard work that goes into making gardens beautiful. You will learn from your guide, your group leader, and perhaps most of all from your fellow travelers. Try it and return with a deeper love for flowers and gardens.
