Famous Gardens

The possibilities are endless

Britain has a reputation for beautiful gardens which attract followers from all over the world. It’s easy to see why. Trace the development of gardens over the centuries as we visit a variety of gardens. From Scotland through Wales, and right down to the South West or South East corner of Britain there are gardens showcasing the most wonderful displays. We could visit Inverewe Gardens in Scotland, unexpectedly lush as a result of the Gulf Stream. Then there is Bodnant in Wales founded in 1874 and developed by five generations of one family.

Hidcote was the first set out as if a series of rooms in the 1920s. And Sissinghurst in Kent is the spectacular creation of Vita Sackville-West with its famous White Garden or nearby Scotney Castle with its stunning azaleas. There are so many to choose from you will be spoilt for choice. Let us put together a tour for you or your group.

As a travel veteran — veteran of independent travel, and of tours with large companies and smaller ones — I can unreservedly say that Sarah Reynolds of Questa organized the most enriching and varied trip ever, a unique trip through southeast England tracing the route of Chaucer’s pilgrims to Canterbury.  Questa will apply all of that same devotion to uncovering the historical and cultural detail in planning your own journey. And the fun quotient is ever-present, too.

We were so impressed with Sarah’s ability to handle all our arrangements. Her attention to detail and enthusiasm absolutely made our trip a life-changing experience for our students and alumni. We trusted her completely with our itinerary and we are extremely happy with the result! Unlike other tour companies, Questa listened to our desires for venues, sites to see, education components we wished to include and built our tour exactly to our specifications, rather than giving us a ‘cookie cutter’ tour. The guide’s knowledge was tremendous and perfect for our group. We will never use anyone besides Questa – simply outstanding in every way.

I have worked with Sarah at Questa Travel on several occasions since 2004, and have come to trust her completely on both large and small incentive trips.  It is personally very important to me that when I take important Customers or Employees to foreign destinations, that their experiences are positive ones that will last them a life time.  Whether it be identifying the most appropriate properties to stay at, seeing the most interesting sights, or ensuring seamless logistics, Sarah nails it all every time.  Even on those odd instances where I have asked Sarah to help in markets she does not normally work (Prague, Budapest, Madrid), she always delivers the perfect experience.  Most importantly, she is an absolute joy to work with.
