What people are saying about Keukenhof
had to ask directions to find departure point. Recommend that guide in station have a more visible sign. Very hot on the bus and driver didn't seem to be able to adjust heat, so very uncomfortable trip. Easy to pick up bus for return trip, but longer walk from drop off in Amsterdam back to station. Difficult if you have mobility issues. Definitely recommend skip the line ticket and a visit to to the gardens.
Easy pick up point in the central station. The gardens are amazing especially on a sunny day, so much to see. This bus has a fixed pick up time after 3 hours and we could have done with more time so it was annoying when we got on the bus only to be told we had to wait 15 mins for the driver's break. The bus was very hot on the return journey, the air con was not working. If going again I would look for a trip with flexible return times.
The bus ride and the logistics that go along with tour companies was well planned and executed.
he trip was sensational. The places visited are filled with beauty and happiness. Guides were extraordinary, especially Diana.The atmosphere, the explanations and the organization they made was impeccable. I felt great and I left with some unforgettable memories.
As a man with little interest in flowers, I wondered how I would pass the time between coaches. I was blown away by the beauty of the place and so much to see.
