Solo Tour
Matthew_C, July 2023
Laura was an exceptional guide, teaching me about the history of Philadelphia, the BrandyWine area and of course, Longwood gardens. Appreciate that the company gave me the tour despite being the only person who booked. And the gardens were beautiful.
Response from Host, July 2023
Longwood Gardens is a site that has to be seen to be believed. What an amazing collection of flowers and trees. We are happy to lead tours for groups big or small. We never cancel a tour that has only a solo guest. We don't want to rob that person of the opportunity to take in that amazing botanical garden.
Great tour
Nina_B, July 2023

Beautiful gardens
Rosemary_S, May 2023
Our visit to Longwood Gardens was very pleasant. Strolling through the lovely gardens was a perfect last day tour during our visit to Philadelphia. Owen, our tour guide showed us around to make the most of the visit. He was pleasant company and accommodating.
Great way to see Longwood
Victoria_S, May 2023
Longwood gardens was fabulous! Definitely worth seeing and this tour was the way to go! It’s quite a ways from Philadelphia but our guide kept us entertained with stories about the area and did a great job of showing us around the garden so we didn’t get lost and waste time. Absolutely loved it!
Beautiful natural surroundings
MONICA_G, Apr 2023
Loved all the different tulips and other flowers arranged by color. The walk through the woods was beautiful and peaceful. Our driver and guide Owen was great.
Great experience
David_S, Apr 2023
Our tour guide Laura was amazing, both knowledgeable and accomodating. We would highly recommend this tour. Thank you again!
Book it! Don’t miss out on Longwood!
Karen_S, Apr 2023
Don’t miss out on this experience! Longwood gardens is a feast for the eyes! Our guide, James, was knowledgeable, interesting and accommodating. He met us on time & shared a great deal on information on the journey to and from Longwood, as well as answering our questions. Taking this tour is easily the best way to get there and back without the hassle of renting a car or figuring out public transport. I would do this tour again in a heartbeat, but perhaps would like to have an extra hour or two at Longwood…. There’s so much to see!
A perfect Pennsylvania afternoon
Aly_M, Apr 2023
My family and I had a great time on the Longwood Gardens experience. Dale was the perfect guide: personable, knowledgeable and amenable to any of our preferences. Our 15-year old say this outing was the highlight of our vacation for him!
Fantastic! Don't miss this!
Roslyn_S, Oct 2022
Our guide Dale was fantastic. He was knowledgable and very personable. He made our tour a lot of fun. The Gardens are beautiful, the fountains are magnificent, and the conservatory is a must-see. We traveled in October so the colors were phenomenal.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you Roslyn! October is an amazing time of the year to see Longwood (truthfully, there isn't a bad time, but Autumn is especially brilliant).
Beautiful restful journey in Nature.
Mark_S, Oct 2022
Although, walking the grounds with our personal guide Dale, our captain for the day, who was not only extremely knowledgeable but just an over all delight to have been so fortunate to spend our experience with today, was amazing and seeing the fountain events, which were magnificent. I will go back over and over again to visit the Conservatory. They are adding another giant more modern conservatory it looks like and I’m going to plan my next trip here for the grand opening with my in laws. Thanks Dale! Peace and Well being to all, Mark
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you Mark! The conservatory and the fountain displays at Longwood are truly stunning and impossible to describe. They have to be seen to be believed. The same goes for the numerous other sites within Longwood. Each section is incredible and so different from the others. All together, they make up perhaps the most beautiful botanical garden in the country. And it's just outside Philly!
Great guide, memorable zlongwood
Wendy_W, Sept 2022
Longwood Gardens were spectacular. The highlight of my trip to Philly. I had a wonderful guide, Adam, for two trips and he was well informed and insightful.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you Wendy! We hop to see you back in Philly for another tour soon!
Beautiful and peaceful...
Willa_S, July 2022
Beautiful and peaceful day in heavenly Longwood Gardens and with a very interesting and lovely painting collection at the museum. The Brandywine Valley is just an exquisite area to visit and enjoy. Adam was perfect: professional, kind and flexible. And cherry on the cake: it ended up being a private tour because I was the only one in the tour.
