secret garden tea tours

small group tours with an emphasis on afternoon tea

Join us to explore a region's beautiful scenery, history, culture through its landscapes, architecture, and gardens while enjoying afternoon tea each day, with plenty of shopping opportunities too!

Our tour are deliberately kept to no more than 14 people so that we can are able to get into tiny tea rooms and antique shops and other places that big tour groups cannot.  This also means that we can move about more easily, using a variety of transportation modes.  We don’t climb into a big bus and just see the sights as we pass by. We hop aboard trains and boats and carriages and trolleys and trams to experience the area. We love to use public transportation whenever possible so we can immerse ourselves in the area we are exploring and feel like temporary locals.

And speaking of experiences, we include them in the tour cost. We don’t sell “optional” tours, because we feel that if there’s something wonderful to see or do, we should include it! We try to allow enough time in each city to experience much of what it offers and have some free time to pursue individual interests.
