Student Travel : Educational Tours
We offer a stimulating programme of educational tours for floristry and horticultural students. Developed with college lecturers over a number of years, these tours are designed to complement college curricula and we are able to work with you to create bespoke tours tailored to the particular interests of your students.
Travel is by coach or air, depending on the destination and the size of the group, and we can include both travel and accommodation costs (in single or shared rooms) of accompanying tutors in the total price.
Please explore the various options set out here and contact us to discuss your ideas. We look forward to working with you.
Our floral educational tours to The Netherlands are designed to take students to the very centre of the flower industry, visiting key events such as Keukenhof and Flora Holland, as well as floral wholesalers and leading flower growers. We are able to further enhance your students' experience with private tours, demonstrations and practical workshops. Travel is by coach or air depending on the size of the group.
We also offer a hugely inspiring tour to Girona's annual flower festival, Temps de Flors. This tour is by air only and has a minimum group size of 10.
ECT believes in flexible options and we can use our extensive experience to tailor-make the itinerary to suit individual travelling dates and interests. We are also able to organise all accommodation, entry tickets and transfers.
We have been organising garden and floral-themed tours for many years and we are delighted to be able to use our knowledge and industry contacts to create a wide selection of educational tours to some of the most beautiful and inspiring gardens, nurseries and horticultural events in the Netherlands, France, Britain and Ireland. We can work with college lecturers to create bespoke itineraries to tie in with the curriculum and are also able to arrange additional features such as specialist talks, private tours and demonstrations to enhance each student’s experience. Travel is by coach or air depending on the number of students travelling and tours can range in length from two nights to two weeks.
