FAITH FLOWER TOURS
We developed specialty Flower Tours in order to explore different areas of the world with a focus on flowers. Since 2011, we have led ten Flower Tours to seven countries. Our basic recipe for a Faith Flowers Tour starts with flower arranging workshops with leading floral instructors and designers in their local region. We add visits to special gardens and floral and gardening related activities. We orient the tours around unique flower experiences in each region. Along the way we enjoy great restaurants and sightseeing with fellow flower lovers.
All levels of experience are welcome on our tours, from beginners to professionals! Join us on a Faith Flowers adventure around the world!
