ENGLAND… Like you’ve never seen it before! (

Are you in the mood for some hassle-free travel … fine living and dining … accommodation that’s anything-but ordinary … and sightseeing that’ll knock yer gumboots off? Well, why give it a second thought? Plan on joining us in June 2024 when we’ll meander down the backroads of Ye Olde Country, enjoying England’s fairytale villages, quaint historic cottages, and postcard-pretty gardens!

Imagine wandering along leafy woodland lanes, through rolling chequerboard hills, and beside wild windswept coastlines. Imagine oohing-and-aahing at flower-smothered lanes, thatch-roofed mansions, quaint village churches, pubs-with-weird-names, medieval castles, ornate cathedrals, and cobbled seaside towns. Imagine hearing tall-tales and legends … sampling local wines, farmhouse cheeses, fresh-caught seafood and cream teas along the way … then going to bed each night in intimate, elegant, boutique hotels.

Well, imagine no more!

On Sunday 23 June, 2024, we’re rendezvousing with other fun-loving, adventurous, slightly-mad Kiwis … then flying off on a fabulous adventure: MIDLIFE MADNESS UP THE GARDEN PATH.

And guess what? You’re invited to join us!

But wait: there’s more …

Do you enjoy the music and magic of André Rieu? Have you always dreamed of being in the audience at one of the fabulous outdoor concerts he and his orchestra perform in his hometown of Maastricht?

Well, guess what? Once our GARDEN tour is over, we’re catching the Eurostar to Holland – with tickets for a glittering sound-and-light spectacle: André Rieu live in concert!

If this optional add-on ticks your boxes, why don’t you come too?
