U.S. tour operator Collette Vacations, in conjunction with the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), the UK’s foremost gardening charity, has today released a complete line of new tours presented in its first-ever RHS Garden Holidays brochure.
Featuring a selection of carefully designed horticultural-themed travel packages with destinations around the world, the RHS Garden Holidays will inspire all, from the greenest of gardeners to more experienced horticulturists, with visits to exclusive gardens, private or expert tours of exceptional public and botanical gardens, and the chance to see many plants in their natural habitat. The tours are also rich in cultural highlights, making them of equal appeal to any non-gardening travel companions.
The brochure contains a total of 11 tours, with departures for certain itineraries starting as early as May 2013.
