Heritage Tours

The wealth of knowledge of the exceptional tour leaders was continually enhanced by the spectacular array of houses, gardens, and breathtaking interiors. Filled with priceless furnishings, decorative arts, and paintings, these magnificent houses were exceeded only by the meals we shared with their owners. It was a treat I shall never forget.
