The tulips had past their prime, so fields were sparse, which was disappointing.
The tulips had past their prime, so fields were sparse, which was disappointing. A rude family shortened our time by half an hour, making sure their needs were met. So it spoiled the day.

So beautiful! This was the reason we took this trip. Pictures do not do it justice. We had the option of a full day or half day and we are glad we did the full day. It is amazing how much work goes into the gardens for 8 weeks of blooming season. Every path you took, you had another beautiful bed of flowers or water feature. They theme the gardens different every year and this year was Flower Power and they had plenty memorabilia from the 60s and 70s including VW beetles and vans with flowers growing out of them. Food is not great at the garden and I saw plenty of people bring a packed lunch. They do have carts selling food and I particularly liked the waffle cart. It is very crowded since it only runs for 8 weeks and it is packed even on a weekday but worth the trip. Read Less

Great place to visit ... colourful, photo delight but bus tour guide was disappointing. Info on the way to Keukenhof but on the way back, gave us the longest nap time ever had on a shore excursion ... just chatted the entire way, almost two hours, with the driver or explained some things we were passing to passengers in the front seats... leaving the rest of us to just look ...or occasionally shout a question.

Both events were great.
Both events were great. It would have been nicer if the windmill trip had better weather, the guide even said so. But we enjoyed climbing up the inside of the windmill. The tulip farms and Kuekenoff Gardens were spectacular..

Keukenhof was the highlight of my trip.
Keukenhof was the highlight of my trip. I could have visited there everyday, it was that wonderful. There were plenty of places to eat, and just sit and take in the beauty of the area.
