If you love gardening then this could be the ideal holiday for you.
Ross Garden Tours offers a programme of world class garden tours for the discerning traveller. Ross Garden Tours is a family business, Australian-owned and operated with 25 years experience in luxury garden travel. Television and radio personalities, Sandra and Graham Ross, have a mission to show you the finest gardens and the most wonderful countries the world has to offer.
Husbands take note, there's more to their tours than gardens! Sandra and Graham are proud that a great proportion, (more than 73 percent), of their travellers return to travel with them again. You can create your own itinerary from their tour collections or use their exclusive booking service for other special interest tours.
Beyond the garden gate
When you travel with Ross Garden Tours, gates will unlock into private gardens and personal plant collections all over the world. Graham and Sandra's contacts with horticultural friends, local guides, leading botanic gardens, private estates and museums is your entry into the finest gardens in each country on your itinerary.
Standard of excellence
Itineraries and hotels are carefully researched. You'll benefit from the over 25 years experience, so you can relax and enjoy your holiday. The tours are more than gardens: the special cultural events of every region are included. Special arrangements are made for exhibitions. For example, your visit to the Chelsea Flower Show includes membership to the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) so that you can attend on Members Day, when there are fewer people, and you can take in more of the sights.
You will stay in superior hotels so that you can experience the charm of each destination. You'll stay in small luxury hotels, historic French chateaux, Portuguese pousadas and Japanese ryokan, all of which are 4 or 5 star standard
Travel with Friends
Our tour groups are intimate so that you can enjoy more freedom and flexibility, reducing that 'on a big tour' mentality. Your travel companions share your joy in gardens, food, wine and culture, which makes for good company. And let's be honest, gardeners make the greatest people!
Group Airfare Discounts
If you choose to travel with our group you can save on your holiday budget. You have the option to book your tour including airfare or on a 'tour only' basis. Book early to secure your seat or book frequent flyers seats to save on airfares.

The tour programme for Europe is designed as a series of tours that can be linked as a 'Grand Garden Tour of Europe'. There are many other holiday options before and after your tour.
