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 Tulperij. At this actual working tulip farm, the owners will show you the best Dutch hospitality and take you for a tour around the fields. The best part? You get to take as many photos in the tulip fields as you want!

But that is not all there is to the Tulperij. Enjoy a nice drink on the terrace, pick your own tulips to take home or purchase artisanal honey made from their own bee hives before heading back to Amsterdam.
