Biltmore Blooms & Washington D.C.

Get your spring started right, join Perkiomen Tours on this fabulous, floral tour! In addition to touring the Biltmore Estate, we will also visit the Sarah P. Duke Gardens at Duke University.

Celebrate the arrival of spring and view the spectacular display of colorful blooms across Biltmore Estate. See tulips, clusters of bright daffodils and forsythia; acres of azaleas ablaze in shades of pink, purple, orange, red and white; hundreds of romantic roses and more. The biggest color explosion is the vibrant colors in the 20-acre azalea garden and cascades of native and exotic blooms in the natural gardens (late April) and along the walking trails. Don't miss the newborn farm animals at Antler Hill Farm and the spring seasonal wines at the Biltmore Winery.

Day 1

Today we begin our southern journey, stopping in Washington, DC where we will enjoy a luncheon cruise aboard the Odyssey. This will give us the opportunity to view some of DC's highlights from the water, as well as enjoy a delicious lunch. We will then have a guided tour of our Nation's Capital with a local step-on guide. Tonight's lodging will be near the city of Richmond, VA.


Day 2

As we continue south, a stop will be made in Durham, NC at Sarah P. Duke Gardens located at Duke University. Duke Gardens is one of the finest examples in the Southeast of gardening as an art form. The 55 acres of landscaped and woodland gardens feature more than 2,000 kinds of plants, 5 miles of walks and pathways, bridges, grottos, waterfalls and ponds. Later we continue to Asheville, the location of our lodging for the next two evenings.


Day 3

A full day at Biltmore Estate will allow for a tour of the Biltmore House, Gardens and Conservatory; lunch at the Deerpark Restaurant and a visit to Antler Village where you can see beautiful gardens, enjoy the Biltmore Farm Museum and visit the Antler Hill Winery. During Biltmore Blooms, the estate's seasonal beauty is showcased with a stunning tulip display in the Walled Garden, cascades of native and exotic blooms in the natural gardens and walking trails and delicate arrangements inside the Biltmore House. The Biltmore House offers festivities including dance, music and skits.


Day 4

This morning we will re-enter the Biltmore Estate for the last time allowing you to see what you missed yesterday, or return to that favorite floral spot. By early afternoon, we will head north for our overnight accommodations in Roanoke, Virginia.


Day 5

Continuing north into the Shenandoah Valley, we will stop in Edinburg, Virginia for a tour and lunch at Shenandoah Vineyards. Here we'll walk through the wine cellar and discuss the winemaking facility, enjoy a box lunch and taste a selection of wines. We'll then continue our journey homeward with an arrival scheduled for early evening.
