This is a very interesting tour. Stefka did a great job of taking us around the HUGE building. That is probably the only draw back, we walked 2 - 3 miles. To watch this auction and the constant movement of flower wagons was amazing. Highly recommend.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Neil! Glad you enjoyed it. Checking Wikipedia it says: It is the largest flower auction in the world. The auction building of the flower auction in Aalsmeer is the 5th largest building in the world, in terms of floorspace, covering 990,000 m² (10.6 million sq ft). So yes a fair bit of walking, but very impressive.
