The Gardens were breathtaking. We lucked out and had a gorgeous springtime Sunday with deep blue sky to reflect all those blooming colors! It was a nicely efficient and comfortable way to be transported to this attraction. The visit to the tulip farm first was very much worth it - a true, inside look at the labor and love that goes into the millions of bulbs that find their way to be planted.
Keukenhof Gardens are not to be missed in the Netherlands! So beautiful and our guide was so great! The stop at the bulb farm was informative, yet casual and very welcoming! We went in mid-April and I think the following week was probably when everything was really in full bloom but there were still some tulips blooming and a lot of daffodils and hycaniths. The only negative I would say is the bus seats were a little cramped.
If you are in Amsterdam during tulip/daffodil season, this is a MUST DO! We gathered at the tours and tickets' store front, which houses many different tour groups. The meeting point is very close to Central Station and easy walk from Dam Square. You will gather on a large double-deck bus in US think a Megabus. We were initially concerned about getting seats as the group could be a little pushy walking to the bus pick up point, but were able to find seats on the bottom. The ride is rather long, almost an hour one way. We slept for some, as we had landed from our overnight flight that morning. We were able to land, leave our luggage, and make it to the 1:30 departure no problem - this tour was the perfect way to prevent jet-lag and still get in some beautiful sight-seeing with low demand for alertness/focus like a museum tour or something to think about. Our guide narrated some of the ride and explained about the industry. The farm tour was worth it. The 'field tour' would be a drive-by experience, and we are so happy we chose this tour with getting out of the bus and actually walking through the fields of daffodils - there were acres and acres of blossoms! The farmer explained a great deal about the farming of bulbs. I learned why my tulips at home fizzle out! Now I now how to plant them and keep them coming back year after year. You view a short movie about the other seasons of the farming of tulip bulbs, and end with a visit to a quaint store filled with examples of blooms you can order and have shipped to your home. I ordered some and while the cost may be a little higher than I usually spend, I am happy with knowing my hard earned money will go to another hard working family. The Keukenhof gardens are everything people say and more. Absolutely breath taking, something unlike anything I've seen here in New England... fields and fields of artistically placed bulbs. Artwork in the landscape really. There were demo greenhouse and more... Don't hesitate - Just go!
this tour was great even though the weather was not the best, but we had a great time, we were, a well looked after,a good farm visit and gardens were great. All in all a brilliant day out
The flowers were beautiful!
The tulip farm was extremely interesting!
Interesting stop at the bulb farm prior to going to Keukenhof. The gardens were absolutely fantastic and even the heavy rain on the way there couldn't diminish our enjoyment.
Enjoyed the tulip farm prior to the Gardens. Would advise bringing a lunch since the lines for food/drink are long.
First class worth the extra for the bulb farm
Excellent tour pick up and meeting points easily found. Great experience to visit these gardens.
This was the highlight of our 10 day trip to the Netherlands and Germany. The tour was excellent and we had plenty of time to enjoy the flowers. Don't miss this tour!
