Greater Hartford Garden Trip


About Our Trips

One of our most popular offerings are guided tours of exceptional gardens in in the US, Canada, Europe and beyond.  In North America we have traveled up and down the East Coast, from Montreal to Charleston, and west to Ohio. Overseas we have traveled often to the UK, and also to Belgium, France, Italy and Morocco.

Tours are planned and led by HPS/MAG tour coordinators, with emphasis on visiting unique private gardens that are not generally accessible to US travelers. The tour package typically includes double accommodations, motor coach and guide, entrance fees, tour gratuities, many meals, and often a wine and cheese reception on the first night. Travelers are responsible for their own transportation to and from the starting point of the tour, some meals, travel insurance and incidentals.

When travelling outside the US, we partner with well known travel agencies who specialize in garden tours, such as Brightwater Tours, and Susan Worner Tours, and we are frequently accompanied by a horticulturalist who is knowledgeable of local plants.

Tours are open exclusively to HPS/MAG members; non-members who would like to travel with us are welcome to join HPS and sign up! Many trips fill quickly; watch the newsletter and website for sign up dates.
