"Although it is always the gardens and plants that are my primary focus, I think my favourite thing about leading Brightwater tours has to be the people. I have met so many lovely people on tours over the years - several that have become good friends to this day. I particularly enjoy hearing about people's backgrounds; everyone has a story to tell and there is nothing better than after a long day touring than settling down for a relaxed chat over a good meal, preferably with a glass or two of good wine as well"

We've rounded up a number of Tony's 2023 tours, should you wish to travel with him, and he is looking forward to meeting more Brightwater guests next year.
