Tulips wonderful but the tour to the cheese & windmills had issues

Guide was very nice but not very informative - keep asking us if we had questions. He should have had a plan in place and telling us about where we were going and about Amsterdam, etc. Cheese place quick and nice however it is a place they stop so you will spend money. The windmill village had this same type of cheese demonstration. Not enough time in the windmills to visit them all and we did not even get to see the wooden shoe maker because our guide asked us to wait until the end and then 3 buses showed up and he said you can wait but it will be long wait now and suggested we not. When we first arrived at the village there was no one at the wooden shoe demo and no reason for us to have missed it. Keukenhof was wonderful and we did have enough time there.

Perfect to see the best part of Holland!

This trip was very nice! We sailed on the Kagerlake and saw a beautiful part of Holland. We went to see a windmill, we visited a flower auction and we got a tour at the cheese farm. The staff was very kind and made a delicious lunch for the group. There were a lot of things to choose from. There was cheese, salmon, eggs, bacon, meatballs and all sorts of bread. It was a great trip and I took a lot of photo’s to keep the memories! I would highly recommend this trip. Huge compliment to our tourguide Daniel who was very kind and told us everything. Thing I liked the most about this trip was the fact that they showed us all the hidden treasures in 1 day without you feeling rushed. We had enough time on every stop and the bus/boat was very comfortable.

Gardens fabulous, village quaint, canal ride very enjoyable. Tour good

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.

Keukenhof was amazing to visit but bus way back was not well organised

Very easy to book and find the space where to get the tickets to the bus. Keukenhof was just very very busy with tourists (peak season for tulips so understandable). However we were stuck in traffic on the way there and for the way back to Amsterdam, we were supposed to have a reserved seat at 3pm and some people apparently did not get their bus 2h before so there was definitely an issue in organisation/schedule/timing for the transport.

The Keukenhof flower experience is unparalleled , once inside !!

Approaching Keukenhof one felt a little let down. ( No flowers - But the weather plays a big role in the timing- An early hot (warm) spring ) . Once inside the Gardeners MAGIC starts playing their role. Magnificent displays , replaced fairly often, keeps the visitors enthralled. The diversity is a major factor and around every corner something new and exciting is presented. For such a busy place even the food and catering is vey good.
