Full description

Experience a full day filled with Dutch flowering fields and spectacular gardens on this guided tour of the Keukenhof Gardens. See rows of tulips, daffodils, and crocuses, all growing in different colors and sizes. Taste local cheese and observe the traditional method of making wooden shoes.

After soaking up the garden vistas, continue to Zaanse Schans, the famous windmill village. Tour the town with your guide. Visit the wooden shoemaker shop for a live demonstration of how wooden shoes are crafted, followed by a cheese-making demonstration and tasting.

Before you set off to discover Zaanse Schans on your own, your guide will give you further information on what makes it a unique village, inform you about local history and culture, and provide you with insider tips about the area.

Great tour! The park was beautiful, even though it was the penultimate day, the transport bus was waiting for us, as we had missed the ferry, and the guides were great, they spoke English and Spanish. In addition, Zaanse Schans is beautiful, charming and with typical food options. I recommend the tour, which lasted around 8 hours.

Very nice trip. A little late in time for the tulip fields because we were nearing the end. Instead, plan to do this before April 15th. The KeuKenhof flower park is beautiful and we enjoyed the free time to visit everything at leisure. Our guide was amazing and our 9 year old daughter interacted well with her. We were lucky to have a sunny day and the visit to Zaanse Schans was magnified by the visit to the sawmill with an enthusiast who explained to us in great detail how it works.

Fantastic time exploring Keukenhof tulip gardens as we got to see fields upon fields of beautiful tulips. Our favourite part of all however was the Zaanse Schans tour where we got to witness clogs being made in 5 minutes, taste delicious cheese, make our own hot chocolate, and explore the windmill countryside overlooking the large lake and rivers. Brilliant!
