Depart central Rotterdam by air-conditioned coach and travel to Lisse, an area known for its bulb fields. Listen to the live onboard commentary about this tulip-growing region and enjoy a panoramic tour.
Feast your eyes on the carpets of reds, yellow, and pinks, and stop for photos at different vantage points. Then, continue to the Keukenhof, one of the world’s largest flower gardens.
On arrival, enjoy a guided orientation tour to discover the garden’s history. Once a kitchen garden, the Keukenhof became an exhibition space for bulb exporters in 1949. Today, it boasts seven million bulbs of tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths that fill it with color and perfume every spring.
After your orientation, enjoy free time to explore independently. Stroll the footpaths and marvel at the expanses of flowers that frame the lawns, woodlands, ponds, and waterways. Discover the themed gardens such as the English landscape, Japanese country, and historical gardens, and visit the greenhouses, flower shows, and more.
Relax at the Keukenhof’s restaurants and shops, perhaps browsing for souvenirs and refueling with snacks and drinks (own expense). Later, return to Rotterdam, where your tour ends at the original start point.
