|The Chelsea Flower Show has been adequately described as mother nature’s version of Paris Fashion Week. Every year, more than 150,000 visitors flock to London in anxious anticipation of vibrant horticultural displays and the unveiling of new plant species and emerging gardening trends – a joyful celebration of visual and olfactory perfection.
Insight Vacations® is offering a special 2015 itinerary showcasing this lively event. Botanists, horticulturalists, and amateur gardeners alike delight in this 10-day exploration from London to the Loire Valley. Explore the courtyard, city, show and roof gardens while learning about the strains of plants and flowers before embarking on a spectacular Thames River Dinner Cruise. Continue to Amsterdam for a floating Flower Market and the famous Aalsmeer Flower Auction before enjoying a relaxing canal cruise in Bruges. Finally, explore the famous châteaux of the Loire Valley, Chenonceau Castle, Château de Cheverny and Château de Chambord and witness the glamour and grandeur of French royalty and aristocracy.
“European Affair & the Chelsea Flower Show” is an exceptional itinerary with limited seating departing May 21, 2015. Tickets to the show typically sell out months in advance, and availability on this itinerary will not last long. Insight is also offering guests a $300 per couple discount when they book and make a deposit by September 15, 2014!
Insight guests enjoy more intimate groups limited to 40 passengers, the services of an experienced Tour Director who acts as a “traveling concierge” and expertly planned itineraries offering a range of Signature Experiences that provide a revealing look into the history and culture of each destination. Guests also enjoy Signature Dining and Dine-Around Evenings and stay in select signature hotels that are centrally or scenically located.
