Private tour Keukenhof tulip gardens, Dutch landscape and more with private guide
We love tulips!
Keukenhof is the most famous spring garden in the world with more than 7 million tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and other beautiful flowers. You have never seen so many colors at the same time! And the sweet smells, oh my! You can order fresh bulbs! On the way from Amsterdam to Lisse I will tell you wonderful stories about Holland and the Dutch, we'll see tulip fields, a windmill and hopefully some sheep and cows. Don't forget your camera!
This tour is combined - on request - with an (early!!!) visit to the flower auction at Aalsmeer. It can be extended with a visit to Delft, Gouda, Leiden, The Hague or Haarlem, Zaanse Schans windmills, the seaside, or just more time to relax at the Keukenhof.
The Keukenhof is open daily from March 22 to May 13 2018.
Use of a small car up to 3 passengers is included. Other transportation on request.
PLEASE NOTE: I'm a private guide. All my private tours are CUSTOM MADE. Please tell me your preferences and I'll prepare the perfect tour for you.
It's your tour! Ask anything you want to know, take a rest if you need one, have a photo break if you want one, and we skip the flower auction if you don't want to get up early.
