Amstedam was nice and the Pass encouraged us to plan some. Two suggestions: 1) Make it clear that Keukenhof is only open thru May 2) Public transportation/tram pass requires check-in and additional paperwork @ Tourist Center near Central Station. Also, no activities in Leiden seemed to come under the pass.

We both really enjoyed the trip to Keukenhof, and were so lucky that the weather was sunny and tulips at their best. The gardens themselves were lovely, well designed with mature flowering shrubs, trees, and well positioned sculptures, so that even if bulbs had not been flowering the visit would have been well worthwhile
Keukenhof Gardens were awesome and was the highlight of the trip.
We were completely surprised at how magnificent and interesting the tulip garden tour was, even on an over-cast day. I had no idea of the extent and beauty that it held. A visit to Keukenhof Gardens should be on everyone's 'bucket list'!
The Keukenhof tour was a delight! It was like a dream to be surrounded with lots of beautiful, colorful flowers. I highly recommend this tour...
The Keukenhof was wonderful even though the weather was awful - it rained the entire time we were there. Take an umbrella to be on the safe side. The gardens are amazing with many colors, varieties and mixtures of tulips. The pavillions of lilies, orchids and bromeliads were also beautiful and fragrant and gave one an opportunity to escape the rains. On top of this there are many blooming trees and even the grass was decorative. If you like to garden or enjoy flowers this tour is a must. Just take an umbrella, wear comfortable shoes and take a camera! My only disappointment was the quality of the souvenirs, skip the shops.
The tour was smooth and had enough time to explore the Keukenhof Gardens.

The tour programme was well organized. The guide was very good. Visiting time for Volendam would be more than allocated. Keukenhof Gardens tour was very good.
The half-day tour(9am to 2pm) was quite lovely. Keukenhof gardens was everything we imagined it to be and more. The tulips were gorgeous-in every amazing color! Rows and rows of tulips and a wide variety of flowers, flowering plants,and trees abound in this enormous garden. THe only real let down within the gardens was the food in one of the main canteens-it lacked flavor and was way overpriced for a canteen type menu. One of the stalls in the gardens which offered hot chocolate and miniature pancakes more than made up for what was lacking. though the tour should've ended at 2pm, the traffic was terrible and the bus got us back at 330pm.
Keukenhof Gardens have to be the best presented gardens in the world.
On the day the only disappointment was the standard of the replacement bus.
Keukenhof is a really beautiful place and even though some of the tulips were a late in opening, so they were still green, the overall experience was excellent. The only thing that detracted from it were the two ladies who took our tickets on the coach were not in the slightest bit interested in the passengers. We were given little information on the journey to the tulips, no advice for when we were there and none on the way back!
IT WAS GREAT. We saw everything we hoped to see. The Keukenhof gardens were beautiful and the trip to Volendam was a lot of fun. The bus was clean and comfortable and the guide was friendly and knowledgeable.
The tour itself -- the narrated bus trip and beautiful Keukenhof Gardens -- were wonderful! However, the pre-tour logistics were terrible. Apparently, there were multiple tours departing the Lindbergh ticket office on busy Damrak Street at roughly the same time. Consequently, there were HUNDREDS of participants jammed together on the sidewalk in front of the office -- all wanting to know what to do. The lone Lindbergh employee in the middle of the swarm did little to keep the waiting crowd informed about what was going on. A simple announcement (repeated periodically and in more than one language) -- indicating that multiple tours would be leaving from that point and that the departure for each would be clearly announced -- would have dramatically reduced the confusion that seemed to be plaguing most of those waiting for a tour. Announcing the PENDING departure of each tour (eg, "The bus for the Keukenoff Gardens tour, in English, will be arriving in about 5 minutes.") would have been a further help.
Thoroughly enjoyed our well organised trip to see the Keukenhof Gardens - the commentary on the bus was excellent.
Keukenhof Gardens were fantastic. We were very lucky with the weather. According to the locals it was the first real sunshine and warmth that they have experienced this year. It was evident how much of an impact the unseasonally cold weather earlier in the year has had on the gardens. The blooms are now really beginning to come out in force. Had we been visiting when the gardens first opened, I would probably have been disappointed.
