About this tour
Experience the beauty of Keukenhof Gardens in bloom on a guided tour from Amsterdam in the company of an expert guide. Travel by comfortable bus to the Netherlands’ most famous bulb region, passing through remarkable flower-filled meadows. In the afternoon continue to windmill village Zaanse Schans and see all the other dutch icons such as windmills, cheese, and clogs.
Begin your day with a pick-up from one of our pick-up points in central Amsterdam. Get comfortable in your seat aboard a single-decker coach. As you leave Amsterdam, gaze out at the vivid flower fields of the Dutch countryside. Awash with colorful crocuses, tulips, and daffodil. These blooming fields are remarkably beautiful. As you admire them, listen to your guide revealing more about the history of this region. Depending on time, you might also stop to take photographs of this stunning landscape.
When you arrive at Keukenhof Gardens, step off the bus and embark on a guided tour of the grounds. Covering an area of more than 79 acres (32 hectares), these magnificent gardens are home to innumerable blooming bulbs, all meticulously landscaped into aesthetically pleasing patterns. The gardens are filled with delicate blossoms of all sorts of colors and textures, which give a gently perfumed fragrance.
While you explore the mind-blowing blaze of flower beds, fields, and lawns, which are peppered with ponds and water features, listen to your guide explaining the hard work that goes into creating this elegant floral display. After soaking up the garden vistas, you continue to Zaanse Schans.
The windmill village Zaanse Schans is an open-air museum that houses a collection of working windmills, wooden houses, barns, and shops dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries. All these buildings were brought here from 1961 onwards bringing back to life this most prosperous period of the Zaan region.
In its golden age, the Zaan Region developed into an industrial area on a scale never seen before, with 600 active windmills. Windmills are wooden factories powered by wind. In these small factories, many tasks were being executed with the aid of wind energy: wood sawed by machines, grinding spices, oil for food and paint, flour, cocoa powder, and many other things.
The prosperity in the 18th and 19th century can be seen in the Zaanse Schans windmill village in several ways. Alongside windmills, barns, and other buildings, you will see beautiful houses that were originally built as homes for rich windmill owners and merchants. These houses have attractive facades and have been painted in traditional colors such as green, beige, and light blue.
Upon arrival in the village, your guide will take you on an orientation tour of the village. You will visit the clog museum (wooden shoemaker shop) and at the cheese farm, you will get to taste Dutch cheese. Then it is time to further explore the village on your own. Before you set off to discover the Zaanse Schans on your own, your guide will give you further information on the Zaanse Schans and its unique character, inform you about local history and culture and give you insiders tips about what to do and where to go.
