Tour description provided by Viator

If you arrive in the Amsterdam port in springtime, don't miss the opportunity to visit one of Holland's top attractions -- the Keukenhof Gardens! If you love flowers, you won't believe the colorful display of tulips and other springtime bulbs in bloom at the magnificent Keukenhof Gardens! The unforgettable seasonal display is created by more than seven million tulips, daffodils, hyacinths, other spring bulbs and gorgeous trees. This hassle-free shore excursion from Amsterdam is the easiest way to get to these out-of-the-way gardens!

Your shore excursion to the Keukenhof Gardens departs from central Amsterdam, only a short walk away from the cruise ship terminals. You'll be picked up by comfortable luxury coach and together with your knowledgeable guide, you'll discover the beautiful landscapes en route to Keukenhof. You'll drive through the beautiful Dutch countryside, passing vibrant and colorful tulip fields along the way.Choose from three different departure times during the day with all tours lasting five hours with three hours free time in the gardens. There are several restaurants within the park or you're welcome to bring along a picnic lunch to enjoy at one of the many benches and picnic spots.The Keukenhof Gardens and Tulip Fields are open for a limited time each year; while the staff at Keukenhof Gardens works very hard to ensure the seven million tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and other spring bulbs are in bloom during this eight-week period, the cycle of blooming flowers depends heavily on weather conditions. You are guaranteed to see a mixture of flowers in bloom from March to May, but April travel dates are recommended for the greatest chance to see the gardens at their very best, including the tulips.Worry-free Shore Excursion:This excursion is located within a 20-minute walk to the cruise port, so you determine the time you return to your ship in Amsterdam. Please allow yourself ample time to enjoy the excursion and ensure your timely return to the port. This excursion is not covered by our worry-free policy.
