HIKOI Garden Tours is a small landscape tourism venture, run by Ian Henderson and Penny Cliffin (see our profiles). We offer inspirational journeys primarily for landscape professionals, overseas and in NZ. While a focus on gardens is the primary raison d’être of HIKOI’s tours, we also attempt to include a variety of art and architecture and selected landscapes to provide a cultural and landscape context.
Our academic backgrounds, international experience and study tour reputation provide a unique platform for landscape and other design professionals to choose HIKOI trips with confidence. We research gardens and their contexts thoroughly to make our tours suitable to met CPD requirements of professional organisations.
Our trips are designed to provide CPD points required by professional organisations. We research gardens and their contexts thoroughly to make our tours informative, and suitable for CPD. Our tours are affordable, well organised, but not overly prescribed. We think tourism should enhance local communities and not be overly resource hungry.
We want you to return home enthusiastic, having a sense of accomplishing a lot, and feeling truly enriched.
