Amsterdam The Keukenhof Gardens Excursion Reviews

More than 7 million tulips, daffodils and hyacinths fill over 32 hectares with color and fragrance. The pavilions feature 30 alternating flower and plant shows that enchant and inspire visitors for only eight weeks of the year!
Great to see again.
Sail Date: May 2019
Great to see again. The orientation walk at the beginning was almost unnecessary. Need a bit more time, perhaps another 1/2 hour.

This excursion was the highlight of the trip. The garden was in full bloom. The fragrance from the hyacinths was intoxicating. The various displays and pavilions were beyond expectations. In a word - wow!

Too late in the season - most of the flowers in the fields were headless! Might have been better a few weeks before hand. The Garden is nice but we have nice gardens in the UK so, in retrospect, probably not a great excursion on balance. The trip through the 'pleasant countryside' was actually mainly conducted along the perimeter of Schipol airport! Read Less

April was the perfect time of year to visit the gardens as everything was in bloom - simply stunning! Do not book the boat ride - waste of time and money. Do try to chips from the chip truck.

Our fabulous cruise manager, John Riley, arranged for our buses to leave earlier than scheduled so we arrived at Keukenhof when it opened on Sunday morning. He said we would arrive before the crowds and the first bus would leave at noon as the gardens became crowded. He was absolutely right, and we had a beautiful morning touring these stunning gardens.
