The Netherlands is famous for its horticultural excellence and known for its innovations at the forefront of garden design. Throughout this tour we are introduced to leading names in Dutch horticulture and garden design and explore some of the sources of inspiration for their work, such as the gardens of the late Mien Ruys and the magnificent historic, restored grounds of Paleis Het Loo.  We have carefully selected two fine hotels for our stay: Kasteel Engelenburg, a country house surrounded by parkland and woods, and The Dylan, which offers a haven of style and tranquillity in a beautiful part of Amsterdam.
