Paris & London/Chelsea Flower Show
May 17-26, 2008 Tour

Usually I will put a tour together of Paris and London every second year or so…so if after you have gone through all these wonderful memories of mine – my pictures, and you want to know about the next Paris/London tour, please send me an email. We stay right in Paris and London so you can immerse yourself in these two incredible cities – so different and diverse – yet focused on one thing – the gardens.

‘The garden tour was everything we expected and more. It was so well organized and we had an opportunity to see so many beautiful gardens. The Chelsea Garden Show was a once in a lifetime experience. Thank you for all that you did to create a wonderful experience for us all.’

Please visit our exclusive tours only website at  for our next offering of tours!

You may not see that many pictures of certain gardens – it is because I have already been there, perhaps more than once – so look in the Pix area of the site under the other tours to see those gardens and more. The gardens change on the London side but for Paris, everyone wants to see Versailles and Giverny plus I want to make sure they have enough time to shop and take in the shows and theater and the Museums like the Louvre. There is just so much in these two cities – you can never be there long enough!

May 17, Day 1.
Upon arrival in Paris, we made our own way to the Holiday Inn Paris opera for the next four nights. We all met later on for our Welcome dinner. It is so nice to meet old friends who have traveled with me before and new travel guests…catch up on the latest and find out what it’s like to garden in different areas of the world.

In a quiet street just a few yards from the bustle of the main shopping streets, the Hotel Holiday Inn Paris Opera offers all the warmth and charm of a genuine "Belle Epoque" decor. It is close to Opera Garnier, the Musée Grévin wax museum, the famous department stores, Les Halles shopping center, the George Pompidou Center, and the Hotel Drouot auction halls.
