What You Can Expect

Amsterdam Shore Excursion: Keukenhof Gardens and Tulips Fields Tour

Amsterdam Shore Excursion: Keukenhof Gardens

If you love flowers and your ship stops at Amsterdam port in the spring, don’t miss this shore excursion to the Keukenhof Gardens. Select from three different departure times during the day. All tours last five hours, with three hours of free time in the gardens.

Your excursion departs from central Amsterdam, a short stroll from the cruise ship terminals. Board a comfortable luxury coach and together with your informative guide, then admire the Dutch countryside and pass colorful tulip fields on the way to Keukenhof.

The Keukenhof Gardens are open for a limited time each year. You are guaranteed to see a mixture of flowers in bloom from March to May, but April travel dates are recommended for the greatest chance to experience the gardens at their most vibrant, including the tulips. While the staff at Keukenhof Gardens works hard to ensure the seven million tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and other spring bulbs are in bloom during this eight-week period, the cycle of blooming flowers depends heavily on weather conditions.

Grab a bite to eat at one of the restaurants in the park, or bring along a picnic lunch to enjoy at one of the many benches and picnic spots.

This excursion is located within a 20-minute walk to the cruise port, so you determine the time you return to your ship in Amsterdam. Please allow yourself ample time to enjoy the excursion and ensure your timely return to the port. This excursion is not covered by our worry-free policy.

This was one of the main reasons for my visit to The Netherlands the tulips. The flowers are so beautiful and the grounds are gorgeous. I was there in May when the flowers were in full bloom. It is a self guided tour of the flowers but the tour company give you ample time to be able to visit the whole garden. I would recommend this to people of all ages, as it is that beautiful. There is a restaurant and plenty of souvenir shops as well as a coffee stand. Try the mint tea, it is amazing! This is a tour everyone should take...

The afternoon tour from Amsterdam on April 7th fit our schedule after departing our cruise in Rotterdam that morning. We walked to the local vendor from our hotel and joined others going on the same tour. The tour guide described the tour as well sites along the way in several different languages matching the needs to those on the tour. Anna was also able to respond to questions in the person's preferred language. After 45 minutes or so we arrived at the gardens and were given a map describing the various places. Although not all the flowers were in full bloom, the gardens were fabulous - breathtaking. A chilly wind made spending time in several of the pavilions a welcome reprieve for us from Phoenix, AZ. I can understand while one wants to visit several times during the season as the landscape is continually changing with different plants blooming at different times. The 3 hours went by quickly. We would highly recommend this special place for those travelling to Amsterdam in the Spring.

Beautiful gardens. Great central location near the cruise terminal and train station for tour start and end. Much better price than cruise excursion price.
