Itinerary
Stop At:  
Keukenhof
The true highlight of this tour, the Keukenhof. Once a mere kitchen garden filled with vegetables and herbs, the Keukenhof - smack dab in the middle of South Holland’s tulip region - now has the distinction of being the world’s largest flower garden. This guided tour will take you through the 15 kilometers of footpaths and 32 hectares of gardens, where millions of bulbs are planted each year. Tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, and other spring bulbs of a variety of vibrant colours carpet the grounds. Stroll through the English landscape garden, the Japanese country garden, and the historical garden. Take in the flower sculpture, based on an annual theme. Just don’t forget to bring your camera - this is an experience you won’t want to forget!

This was a huge touring company handling many large events at the same time. They are very organized and the different touring events went very smoothly. Good transportation to the Keukenhof gardens and the guide did a great job with the orientation before they left us to wander the gardens ourselves. Plenty of time to ramble in awe of this beautiful gardens.

My bucket list item was to see the tulips. They were more beautiful than I could have imagined. Go to The Netherlands around April 15-30 to see the peak.

Scheduled a tour as suggested by our travel agent. Did have significant problems securing a ticket and when calling for direction, the operator at Keukenhof was less than helpful. Maryanne, who was our tour guide, gave us wonderful history and informational. The gardens were superb. I am so glad we had the opportunity to attend.

VIATOR TARNISHES DREAM OF SEEING KEUKENHOF TULIPS.
Joyce_E
, Apr 2022
The most memorable was being dropped off at the Heineken Brewery early April 18, 2022 to find out that we had gone to the wrong address. You had that address on our ticket. We showed it to the cab driver and that's where he insisted we were to be. No thanks to Viator, but thankful our Tour company cared enough to calm us down and give us the correct location. Also, we luckily flagged down a cab and he knew what to do. I can't tell you how upset I was that we were left on our own not knowing anything about Amsterdam etc. When we told our Keukenhof guide she was not very happy, but thankful that we had pursued and made the event. No complaints with Keukenhof or the tour company, but you will never be given a thumbs up from me or my friend. It was a very unpleasant experience and we understand that the pick up location was changed long time ago!! !!! not good PR

This was a perfect tour. We got there early in the morning before the crowds got too big and had 2.5 hours to go through on our own after a short tour with the guide. It was the perfect amount of time to see everything, get a cafe and souvenirs. I would highly recommend.

Tulips are amazing
Milissa_K
, Apr 2022
We were visiting Amsterdam and really wanted to see the tulips but it's quite a drive so we decided a transfer would be a good option. The bus was comfortable and the tour guide gave information on the trip there and on return. We choose to walk on our own and not with the tour guide inside the garden. Highly recommend this tour for transfer.

There is no guided tour along with it. Just transportation - don’t be fooled! The guide just told us we had 3hrs of free time when we got there.

Hi Sam, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. I have contacted the guide about this situation, as we always offer all our guests a guided tour through the Keukenhof. The guide explained to me that they asked you to wait as they had to pick up their entrance ticket at the information desk. However, you decided not to wait for this and therefor did not join the guided tour that was given just a few minutes later. Kind regards, Tour Company
