Lisse: Drive-it-Yourself Tulip Fields GPS Audio Tour
- Private group
- Duration: 2 hours
- Optional audio guide
The small town of Lisse, south of Amsterdam and Haarlem, is home to the Keukenhof tulip garden, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors from the world over each year.
Built in 1642, the castle is by far the most prominent building in the village. Unlike the gardens, it's available to visit all year round. Definitely worth a stop!
The Juliana Pavilion houses this exhibition that tells of the rise of the tulip in the Netherlands. From the Golden Age to the present, discover its economic and cultural impact!
Really, it doesn't get more Dutch than this... riding a bike through endless fields of tulips. It's the essential way to experience Keukenhof!
The Dutch word for pancakes is "pannenkoeken," a staple of local cuisine. Make it a quintessentially Dutch day and stop by for an afternoon snack at the restaurant!
If photos aren't enough, you can also buy colorful bulbs from the local shop. Make sure you check customs regulations of your destination or home country first, though.
Keukenhof is only open from March until May, so visiting times are very limited - check in advance for the exact dates, as this changes each year.
8:00AM to 7:30PM, although do note that the ticket office closes at 6:00PM.
Adult admission is €16, and you may be able to get a special price for groups of more than 20 people.
Bus driver and tour guide very good. There were multiple language groups on our tour which took away from her time having to speak in 3 languages when she could have devoted more time to share history of the Netherlands. While most of the tulip fields had already been either clipped or plowed up, they made an effort to find an area that still had a few rows of tulips left. Tour was timely. Enjoyed our canal cruise. Felt the narration via recording on canal cruise could have been more informative.
most beautiful flower garden i have ever seen, there was so many species of flowers to explore and many photo opportunities! doesnt matter if the weather is cold and wet, the flowers will brighten up your day!
It is really a good option to travel in amsterdam and its region. The only bad aspect of it is that you can not active it online and you must go to the centers to active it. So online sale is a joking.
The meeting point clearly mentioned it was easy to reach, the bus was on time and were seats available and above all the gardens were beautiful. An excellently organised tour.
Well-organised, clear information, and very simple to follow. Highly recommended!
