Long description

Enjoy a comfortable scenic ride from Amsterdam to the bulb flower area of Lisse. Depending upon the season, you will see a landscape with colorful bulb flower carpets in the most stunning colors you can imagine. We finish the scenic ride at one of the highlights of this tour; the Keukenhof Gardens. Once a kitchen garden filled with vegetables and herbs; it now has the distinction of being the world’s most extensive flower garden. Stroll through the 15 kilometers of path and 32 hectares of gardens, where millions of bulbs are planted each year!

After you explored the Keukenhof, we will make our way to our next destination; The Tulip Experience. This family-owned business is established by an actual tulip farmer and his daughter. At the Tulip Experience, you will learn everything there is to know about the wonderful tulips at their indoor museum before making your way into their absolute highlight: the show garden. Amaze at endless fields containing more than 1 million tulips. The best part? You get to explore the fields freely and take as many photos as you want!

Once your camera roll is full and you’ve enjoyed your complimentary coffee or tea, we will bring you back to Amsterdam.
