Keukenhof gardens and Dutch countryside with your own private guide!


A scenic drive through the Dutch countryside takes us to theKeukenhof, the most exciting and colorful spring gardens of the world. You will have the opportunity to visit these famous gardens in the heart of the flower bulb district. You will see tulips but also crocuses, hyacinths, daffodils and many other spring flowers. There is something for everyone: the flowers, indoor exhibitions, theme gardens, flower parades, a windmill, sculptures and even special routes for children.

After lunch we will visit the Dutch countryside to see neat Dutch villages and explore the more traditional way of living in the Netherlands with its windmills, wooden shoes and cheese.

Join me on this fantastic full day tour to the Dutch Icons: tulips, cheese, wooden shoes and windmills!

Note that the Keukenhof is only open between March and May.

A Recent Review of this tour

Frank was absolutely great, very upbeat and obviously loves his country. Worked in an unplanned visit to Volendam including a boat passage to lunch. We could not be happier with our time spent with Frank, highly recommended.
