Spring Blooms in New Orleans

This tour offers an intimate look at a New Orleans most never get to experience led by 2 local tour managers with years of garden travel expertise.

This setting is a landscape of exceptional scenery. Lake Como is a deep lake hemmed in like a fjord by towering mountains. Lake Maggiore has the character of an inland sea, with ferries crossing to the famous island gardens for an afternoon in another world. This region has been an inspiration for a string of illustrious writers and composers, and a long line of distinguished visitors.
