Why Travelers Choose This Tour
If you're visiting Amsterdam in the spring, you can't miss the Keukenhof Gardens! This tour makes it easy to get to the gardens and enjoy them at your own pace.
Your Keukenhof Gardens tour starts as you depart Amsterdam by coach for the journey through the countryside of the Netherlands. Admire rolling fields of blooming flowers while learning about the history of the region from your guide.
Upon arrival at Keukenhof, set off on your own, using your provided map of the 79-acre (32-hectare) gardens to explore independently. During your three hours of free time, wander along a maze of pathways lined with millions of vibrant tulips. You'll also spot other springtime blooms like daffodils, bluebells and hyacinths. Walk past ponds, brooks and greenhouses, and bring your own picnic lunch or purchase something at the refreshment stand to enjoy amid the flowers (own expense).
When your time at the gardens is up, return by coach to Amsterdam, where your tour ends.

The reason we went to Holland. Not disappointed. The gardens are fantastic.
what a fantastic trip, our bus driver took us on a back route which allowed us to view all the tulip fields surrounding the gardens which was extra viewing for us. unfortunately due to late bad weather not all the flowers were out but what we did see was amazing. Such unusual flowers and lots of variation of colours. there was lots of different areas in the gardens to entertain everyone right from children to the elderly, plenty of sculptures to see. The view from the windmill was awesome. definitely worth a visit.
Skip this tour and I use that term loosely.
Technically they might fulfill the description but it certainly was not what we expected.
First, you have to go to the office of Lindbergh Travel in Amsterdam. Only they actually are just an office of Tours and Tickets with no sign outside saying it is also Lindbergh Travel on an extremely busy street with foot track area of the city near the Centraal Station. Not even neighboring stores recognized the name Lindberg. Finding them was not easy.
Next, they take the group and you walk 2 blocks to a waiting bus. Put you on the bus and wave bye.
Your tour is the bus ride to the gardens where a person points out the sites like the airport. Wow, never would have guessed that.
Get to the park, and they drop you off. See you in 3 hours and you are on your own. No guide. Bus leaves the area.
No where to sit when you do go to the meeting, and the bus meets you after 3 hours and you get another tour back pointing out many of the same things you saw on the trip out.
The guide didn't appreciate not being tipped and let you know it. But if I'm tipping a person it's for a service. Pointing the obvious isn't worth it.
Whole thing is just a bus ride.
My suggestion is at least find a tour that has a bus running back and forth so if before 3 hours you want to return you can and avoid the afternoon. The return trip gets you back to Amsterdam during rush hour where you can sit on the bus for 30 minutes trying to go 100 yards.
