Description

Start your private experience to Heemskerk comfortably, as your guide picks you up from any address in the Randstad region. Tulip farms in Heemskerk grow and cultivate tulips on large fields and in greenhouses. Professionals in the flower industry, from all over the world, visit these particular farms for their quality tulips. As more tulip factories that grow tulips on crates emerge, the farms that grow tulips the traditional way are slowly dying out. And you have the opportunity to have a look behind the scenes of two of such farms.

Enjoy a live guided tour of the farms in English, exclusive for your party, and visit the traditional nurseries. A minivan is used to transfer between the two farms. Discover how tulips are traditionally grown and cultivated in order to get tulips of the best quality. A brief movie about the tulip growing process gives you more insight into the industry. Finally, a visit to the sand fields where the tulips are grown makes the tour complete. Then it's time for the transfer to Lisse, home of spring flower park Keukenhof, or 'the Garden of Europe'.

Keukenhof is most known for its tulips, but other flowers such as hyacinths, daffodils, lilies, roses, carnations and irises can also be admired. Upon arrival at Keukenhof, your guide walks you to and through the entrance and sets up a meeting point for later. This way you have the opportunity to discover the beautiful park for ± 4 hours in your own pace. Then, meet with your guide again for the transfer back to your drop-off address.

Please note: This tour includes hotel/airport/port pick up and drop off service. You can select the pick up place of your preference from the list or select the "I'll type the address (next step)" message and write the name and address of your hotel in the relevant field during the booking process.
