Tour Fare: $99

Visit North America’s largest camellia collection during its peak blooming season on this delightful tour to the Camellia Forest at Descanso Gardens. The forest boasts over 34,000 rare and familiar camellias, many of which are more than 20 feet in height. You’ll enjoy these blooming beauties via a docent-guided walking tour, which also visits the estate’s 12,000-square-foot Boddy House mansion. Next, we’ll travel to the popular Norton Simon Museum in Pasadena, which houses one of the world’s finest art collections. The museum is rich in Rembrandts, Goyas, Degas and Picassos as well as Southeast Asian artworks dated 100 BC. Spend extra time at the museum enjoying lunch on your own at their casual open-air cafe, or take our optional free side trip to Old Pasadena for more lunch options.
