Keukenhof was unimaginably spectacular, even though it was nearing the end of the season. Our driver was exceptionally pleasant and amusing, with a spanking new Mercedes to drive us out to the gardens. He asked if we were in a hurry, and when we said no, he took a delightful meandering route out and back so that we really had three tours in one.
This was a fantastic experience. Our driver was early and very accomodating, as well as very knowledgable and pleasant. He took a very scenic route to the gardens, and the return was a spectaclular drive along the Amstel River, and by the Rembrandt Wind Mill. The Keukenhof Garden was all it was advertised to be and more. The flowers and landscaping were beautiful, and the atmosphere serene. This trip was a highlight for all 4 of us.
Just the two of us so not cheap, the more people the cheaper the trip. After saying this we liked it a lot, the car dropped us off at the entrance, we had the use of the driver who was very good for 4 hours. We were picked up at the our hotel, and at our request he dropped us off in Amsterdam on our return at a point where we were going on another trip, not to mention as we had additional time left we had a city trip of Amsterdam in a chauffered car. Recommended.
On time, great driver and worked hard in a very busy time to give us what we had paid for- and to see the tulips at Keukenhof. Thanks to Hans. Julie Roberts and Family - Perth, Western Autralia
It was wonderful!!! I highly recommend this service.
The garden is beautiful even at the end of their season and a wonderful place to visit. but the best part of our experience was our driver who was from that distract of ansterdam and gave us the most wonderful tour including a view of a working windmill. he was very informative and gave us quite a tour.

Don't take the bus--private transfer is the only way to go! Prompt & professional driver. Comfortable & spotless car. Five star service before we even got to the gardens! And the tulips were amazing!!!
Nicely handled trip into Keukenhof stopped for good pictures. Timely drop off and pickup. A good choice for those who don't want to combat the crowds that arrive by busloads.
The Keukenhof Gardens were amazing but I think we went a week too early as not all flowers in bloom. I do think though that we could have just taken a normal bus as our guide just dropped us off and left us to our own devices. She was not very helpful on trip out as most questions we asked her she didn't know the answers too. On the return journey though she was more helpful and took us past the Anne Frank house and pointed out other items of interest on the way. Very pleasant day.
The transport and the lady that picked us up was very good. However, what was disappointing was that no map of Keukenhof Gardens was given to us and no recommendation of the best things to do/see within the garden in the time available. I would also have liked to have learnt more about the plants/planting/exporting of bulbs etc.
I would still recommend this tour but for me, if it were improved as above, it would be excellent. Thank You. C Stevenson
GREAT GARDENS -- LACKLUSTER DRIVER/TOUR EXPERIENCE: Based on prior reviews for this very expensive experience, I was expecting to have a Mercedes or other passenger car with a informative guid. Instead a large 8-person passenger van arrived for my husband and me, and while the driver was polite he gave provided almost no information and barely talked at all. We greatly enjoyed the Keukenhof Gardens and I do recommend it but I would not book this company for this tour and recommend you book a private driver/tour guide with your hotel so you know what you are getting.
Keukenhoff gardens was very nice. The tulips ere spectacular, but it was very crowded. I thought our tour included a guide, but it was nothing more than a private car to the gardens and admission. Actually, you don't need a guide in the gardens and you can hire a taxi for a heck of a lot less money.
The SUV was lovely and driver was on time and cordial. But we received no dialog going or coming to our hotel. Because we had such limited time, we had to schedule private transport....but would have loved to hear some history and interesting facts to make our expensive excursion for 3 well worth it
