Botanica World Discoveries is celebrating 15 years of hosting
boutique garden-themed cruises and tours by expanding
its offering to include a greater selection of complementary
experiences including history, art, music and gourmet.
The newly-released 2015/16 brochure contains more than 30
international and domestic land tours, river and sea cruises, that
take small sized groups of like-minded travellers ‘ beyond the
garden gate’ into some of the most beautiful private and public
gardens around the world.
To enhance their guests’ experiences and to complement the
botanically-themed journeys, many of the tours now offer
additional cultural experiences that are further enriched by a
range of talks, demonstrations and guided tours by professional
and engaging guest guides and lecturers who generously share
their knowledge and expertise on their particular field of interest.
The unique experiences on offer are often only able to be achieved
through Botanica, as many of the private gardens visited will open
exclusively for Botanica guests. Even when visiting more iconic
public gardens and tourist attractions, from the Chelsea Flower
Show in London to Machu Picchu in Peru, Botanica guests are
frequently treated to ‘ behind the scenes’ experiences via their
botanical or specialist guide.
Countries visited include France, Ireland, Morocco, USA, Canada,
Japan, China, Singapore, Chile, Brazil, Argentina and New Zealand,
as well as a range of Australian tours in Victoria, New South Wales,
South Australia, Tasmania, Queensland and Western Australia.
Botanica’s recipe for success is taking small-sized groups of people
who share a common interest and providing them with unique
and exclusive experiences. Botanica guests will return from their
journey having experienced an amazing array of sights, sounds,
scents and tastes as well as gaining a great deal of knowledge,
pleasure and memories about the places they have visited and the
people they have met.
Founded by Judy Vanrenen in 2000 and co-owned by the APT
Group, Botanica has the backing of over 85 years experience in the
travel industry and is run through the APT Group’s sophisticated
management and reservations systems.
