TRavel with Sterling

Sterling's philosophy is to offer small group tours for independent people who would not consider a regimented 45 passenger coach tour.

We use first class hotels with local character, and offer exclusive private visits to places you could not see on your own. Our guests enjoy meeting the owners of private gardens and appreciate the special meals featuring local cuisine.


We pay attention to detail, we care about our clients, and it shows! One recent tour included 90% repeat guests. Our customers are gardeners, professional landscape designers, and people who just appreciate looking at beautiful things.

Sterling offers garden tours all over the world. Current departures include Savannah/Charleston, Sicily, San Miguel de Allende, Andalusia, Santa Fe, Seattle and Portugal.
