Founded in 2000 by Judy Vanrenen OAM and Geoff McGeary OAM (Founder of APT) to create a unique niche tourism business catering for people who wanted an extra experience when they travel. Today our guests travel into the world's finest gardens - public & private, natural & created and enjoy unique cultural and historical experiences.
We have dedicated support staff based in offices in the United Kingdom, Europe, North America and New Zealand. If the unexpected occurs whilst you are travelling, we’ll make sure you are taken care of. With over 20 years' experience and a 70% repeat travel rate, you can relax when you book with Botanica.
Botanica’s specialised itineraries combine iconic, must-see destinations with the opportunity to tour magnificent gardens.
Travelling with people who share a common interest is a great way to make new friends and ensure your comfort as part of a group.
On most tours we provide a specialist Botanical Guide to enhance your touring experience. Our Botanical Guides offer a wealth of information about each garden.
On many days, we offer you a selection of sightseeing activities so that you can personalise your holiday at no extra cost.
Our tours and cruises provide you with an opportunity to see the beautiful gardens you have read or heard about.
We will take you to places that are difficult to find on your own or that are open exclusively for Botanica groups.
With Botanica you never need to worry about tipping as it is all included in the tour price.
Our itineraries are carefully planned to ensure that you can take your time to explore each garden you visit on tour.
Many Botanica tours and cruises can be combined; you may just require an extra flight or hotel night between the trips.
