Gardens and Estates of the Brandywine Valley

June 24 - June 30

The Brandywine Valley is nestled in southern Chester County, Pennsylvania, where the DuPonts made their fortunes, built their mansions and gardens, and where three generations of Wyeths have painted the rolling landscapes, idyllic farms, and people of Chadds Ford. After arriving in Philadelphia, we will set off on five days of tours that will encompass everything the Brandywine Valley has to offer. From the gunpowder works of the Hagley Museum and Library, where E. I. DuPont built the foundation of the family’s fortune in 1802, to a spectacular finale at Longwood Gardens, the masterpiece of Pierre S. DuPont, begun over a century later, we’ll experience some of this country’s most spectacular public and private gardens. In addition to Longwood, we will visit the cutting edge gardens of Chanticleer, be amazed at the European wonder of Nemours, and some of the region’s most creative gardeners and designers will welcome us into their personal gardens. For lovers of the arts, we will take in the Wyeth collection at the Brandywine Museum, and one of the most extensive collections of American furniture in the world at Winterthur!

INCLUDED: The tour price includes 6 nights’ hotel accommodations, daily breakfast, 5 days of touring with transportation by private coach, entry fees into all sites visited by the group, a minimum of three additional meals (lunch or dinner, as they fit best into the final schedule), and tips for the coach driver.
