Customer Testimonials

This was my first garden tour ever, so I have no comparisons, but it is hard to imagine how this one could have been better.....


Welsh Borders, June 2017

We were privileged to see such diverse gardens in company with Stephen & Sophie; not a holiday but such a totally enjoyable experience! Thank you....


Welsh Borders, June 2017

This was a restful and beautiful hotel with superb food & setting....


Welsh Borders, June 2017

I thought the variety, contrast and quality of gardens was first class! I am still processing all the memories.....


Welsh Borders, June 2017

There was an excellent mix of old & new, large & small, traditional & innovative. At every site we enjoyed personal discussions with the creators which was especially interesting...


Welsh Borders, June 2017

My friend raved about his tour the previous year (to Holland) and now I know why. We saw gardens and had contacts with the gardeners that would never have been possible to us on our own and were able to ask questions and get expert answers from Sophie & Stephen....

Tour leaders & staff at Boxwood tours all very helpful: very straightforward and clear cut, with the added phone call from Boxwood tours to ensure everything was correct.

We would especially like to thank Jenny Condie and Helen Yemm. They were each a fount of knowledge and gave their time to arrange the itinerary so everyone was accommodated. They worked so well together and so made a very happy, well-informed party.....


Italian Lakes, May 2017

We think you are an excellent company based on the two tours we have taken, but also from others on the tour who have been on many Boxwood Tours; a good sign!


Italian Lakes, May 2017

What we thought was particularly good was that the different types of garden were deliberately varied. They were all beautiful in their own ways. Helen was fun and a mine of information. Jenny Condie was absolutely wonderful: super-efficient, kind and wise.


Italian Lakes, May 2017

Thank you all for a lovely break.


Italian Lakes, May 2017

We're just back from Italy and want to send many thanks to Jenny & Helen for making the tour so enjoyable. We saw some wonderful gardens and villas, ate far too much, and did plenty of laughing along the way. It was a great trip. 


Italian Lakes, May 2017

Interesting variety of gardens. Loved going to the citrus packing plant and citrus orchard.


Sicily, May 2017

This was a triumph for Rachel Lamb on her first tour. She was a charming and attentive guide with an extensive knowledge of all the trees & plants in Sicily. Patty Shone was a professional and excellent leader of the group.


Sicily, May 2017

All the travelling was excellent: on time and brilliantly managed by the tour leaders. The coach driver was exceptional and could turn his vehicle on a sixpence and squeeze through the narrowest gap when required. The meals at the gardens were fabulous.
