This was a fantastic tour. Our guide, Marian, was friendly, knowledgable, and approachable. The tour and museum of Haarlem were delightful. The bulb farm and fields with lunch were really special. The gardens were full of people but there were still areas where we could find peace and quiet and the flowers were spectacular. I am so glad we took the day for this it was a highlight of the trip!

the gardens are beautiful. No Picnic Lunch however. They gave you 15Euro vouchers to use at any of the food places. That was OK though. Haarlem was a really nice town and great architecture. beautiful old church

This was such an awesome day. We met our guide in Amsterdam, got on the van and went to Haarlem. We toured this beautiful place for an hour. Too bad it was raining so hard! Got back on the van and traveled to meet up with a private grower of flowers. He talked to us about the flowers that grow in the area.
We then traveled to Keukenhof Gardens. We were on our own for four hours to discover this place. It was awesome! So many beautiful flowers to look at. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone!

absolutely amazing and informative, so glad we chose this tour and the tour guide was brilliant she knew all the answers felt very safe with the driver too, only problem was the ticket office making us late to get our tickets and then had to run to get the bus and with a 72 year old mother it wasn't very good, but the trip was fantastic
