A visit to Keukenhof was one of the main reasons why we wanted to visit Holland this last spring. We decided to combine Keukenhof with a city trip to Amsterdam since Tours & Tickets organizes trips from the centre of Amsterdam to the bulb gardens and it gave us the chance to explore the Dutch capital as well. We booked the 10 am tour and drove with the bus alongside the beautiful bulb fields.
Seeing those colorful carpets made of different kinds of tulips really was a memory of a lifetime and exceeded my expectations. They often say this part of the Netherlands is the most perfect place to be in spring, and I can only agree on that. During the bus trip, we were accompanied by an English speaking guide who told us the history and origin of Keukenhof. We were happy to have him during the whole tour since it’s quite informative to hear the story behind these bulb gardens. With more than 7 million tulip bulbs, Keukenhof is a great attraction not to be missed when you’re visiting the Netherlands. It’s bigger than you would expect, so we were quite pleased our booking with Tours & Tickets gave us fast-track access. Personally, I really favored the many pavilions with flower shows. I can only describe it as ‘Tulip Paradise’. It really is a must visit for flower lovers. The tulips are displayed in a very artistic manner. It’s not only red and white colors but one is amazed at the different shaped of tulips too.
After visiting Keukenhof we made an extra stop at a bulb farm. Our guide told us it was founded in 1927. The farm is owned by Daan and Anja, two lovely Dutch people with a shared passion for flowers. Daan shared his experience in cultivating tulips while Anja showed us the visitor center. Their short film about cropping tulips was really interesting. I can recommend it to everyone with a passion for flowers. I have to admit the visit to the bulb farm made the Keukenhof experience complete. Daan took us on the field and enriched us with his enthusiasm. I really was all smiles when I sat on the bus back to Amsterdam. Since Keukenhof has a different theme every year, I sincerely doubt this was my last and only visit to Keukenhof.
