The Botanical Boys Darren and Ben put on SUCH a great weekend for us, we couldn't have enjoyed it more. I took my mum for her birthday, and even she with her seasoned green fingers was learning new things and we were seeing hidden green corners of London neither of us had heard of before. Visiting the Boys' house to make our terrariums got our creative juices flowing and we came home with something genuinely great to look at! An all round interesting, unique and excellent experience that comes highly recommended from us.

Ihr werdet auf äußerst nette und sympathische Gastgeber treffen, die mit vielen Insiderinformationen aufwarten und die Euch Einblicke in das Leben echter Londoner gewähren; und Ihr werdet ein Terrarium bepflanzt haben!!

A truly enjoyable experience with wonderful hosts! A pleasure to spend time with Ben and Daz who you can see enjoy sharing their love of botanical things. They were full of advice and tips along the way, catering to our interests and needs. They took us on a great tour to various spots in the city, taking in markets and gardens whilst using the more fun modes of transport the city has to offer. Even after living in London for many years, I was introduced to places for the first time. Therefore recommendable for both visitors and Londoners alike. A highlight was being welcomed into their home and making our own terrariums and air plant sculptures to take home. Which have made such wonderful additions to our home. Feeling more green thumbed now which was my hope. Thanks guys!

Ben and Daz were awesome hosts and it was so much fun getting an insight into their passion, seeing London through their lens, visiting some of their favourite places and learning to make beautiful terrariums and the air plant sculptures. Ben and Daz were so thoughtful and attentive. It felt like they really cared about the guests on the group and for the experience to be relevant and enjoyable, which it was. For example, some of us on the group individually mentioned specific things we liked or specific gardening issues we wanted to address (e.g. I mentioned that I would like some plants that thrive in low light conditions). I noticed that Ben and Daz weaved those themes into the activities - for example, pointing out suitable plants whenever we came across these. The highlights for me were the workshop (I love terrariums and it eas a real delight to be able to create my own); the kindess of the hosts; and the fact that I saw some elements of London that I'd never been to (and I've been living here for 27 years...) The above review is a genuine expression of my thoughts about this experience. For full transparency, I'd like to disclosr that I am an Airbnb employee.
