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 21 to May 19 2019
Transportation (my car, rental car, minivan, bus and private driver) on request, not included.
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.

Included are my time as your private guide, driver (if needed) and personal assistant. I'm an art historian, teacher and tour guide for 20 years; full of stories, funny facts and an eye for detail.
Please note I do not guide INSIDE Keukenhof; I'm an art historian, not a florist :)
I'd be happy to accompany you though, show you the way and point out nice routes, the pavillions, restrooms, restaurants, shops and the place where you can order fresh bulbs for your garden next year. Or, you can explore the gardens on your own (I will drop you off, get you in with fast line tickets and pick you up at the entrance of the park), whatever you prefer.
