Each of our tours is guided by a local expert and an NC State horticultural expert who will take care of you throughout the entire tour. The groups are intentionally kept small for an exceptional experience. They include all entry fees, hotel rooms, transportation, and most meals. Apply to your county agent for continuing education credits. We consistently get outstanding reviews from participants regarding how knowledgeable the guide was, what good care was taken of them throughout the entire trip, the friends they have made, and all that they have seen and learned that they would never have been exposed to if they had not been on the guided tour.
