Full description
Your guided flower auction tour will start early in the morning. It’s worth getting to the event early to experience the hustle and bustle of the flower auction hall inside a special gallery. While a lot of trading is done online nowadays, you’ll still have the chance to experience the thrill of traders bidding against the auction clock and to listen to your guide share inside information about the industry with you during the event.  After the guided portion of the tour is finished, you'll then have some free time to wander around the gallery, soak up the atmosphere and take some pictures before your return transfer.
