8-Person Tulip Field Tours: Amsterdam & Keukenhof

Last year we showed President Obama Dutch tulips. We can do the same for you!

Update As of March 25

We are very busy. We will try to answer all emails but we’ll probably miss a few. Sorry!

Since 2015 we’ve been bringing bringing people to see tulip and hyacinth fields near Amsterdam. Last year’s clientele included Barack Obama! It was quite a privilege and you can read all about our presidential visit  here. 

Our tours always feature a maximum of eight people. They’re cliche-free and guests love the relaxed and friendly vibe. We have two main routes: One goes south to Keukenhof, and the other goes north to the Beemster. This is our off-the-beaten-track tour and is for those who don’t want the crowds of Keukenhof.

This year we also added a little mini-tour that runs from Keukenhof itself: It’s a tour of the surrounding flower field and includes one stop at a field of tulips (or hyacinths if early in the season). So, if you’re travelling to Keukenhof by bus and would still like to see a flower field, this is the option for you.

Our Tours

Scheduling Update: 27/3/24

We have scheduled a tour for April 20. This is the busiest day at Keukenhof due to the flower parade and we may need to rearrange our schedule – for example we cannot visit the windmill in the morning as we need to go direct to Keukenhof. We should able to do it at the end of the tour, but depending on traffic we may not be able (this is unlikely, and we’ll do our best, but putting the caveats out there!). We are also unsure if we will be able to hold the picnic that day. Again we will do our best, but please be aware of this when booking!

Hyacinths / Early Part of The Season

We get a lot of anxiety-riddled questions about trips to Amsterdam in early April. “Will I be too early for tulips?”

The honest answer is maybe, however, there is no need to worry! Hyacinths bloom a couple of weeks earlier, and there are plenty of such fields to be found. They are genuinely just as spectacular as tulip fields. In fact, and we may need to whisper this, one could make the argument that they’re even better than tulip fields. This is because hyacinths have a much stronger scent, and standing in a field of them will also give you an aromatherapy effect.

So, if you’re with us for one of our early tours, it is possible we will visit a field of hyacinths instead of tulips. If that is the case, we’re rather confident that you will be wowed when you see them.

Hyacinths / Early Part of The Season

If you tour with us during early April, we visit hyacinth fields instead of tulip fields. This is because hyacinths bloom a couple of weeks earlier. We actually think a field of hyacinths (whisper it) might be marginally more spectacular than a field of tulips, as the scent is much stronger and it gives you an aromatherapy bath effect.

We don’t have dates as to when we transition from hyacinth field to tulip fields, as there is no way of knowing it in advance. It’s usually the early part of mid April, maybe April 12 or 13, but that is by no means set in stone.

Our Guide To Tulip Season In Amsterdam

In nine years of tulip tours, we’ve met a lot of folks, and frankly they’re not all equally well-educated. So, we’ve been busy bees and have put together a guide to Tulip Season in Amsterdam. It’s both simple and comprehensive.

However, we know the internet is a busy place and maybe you don’t have time to read it all. If that’s the case, let us indulge your tiny attention span and lay out the most important bits here!

– There are no tulip fields in Keukenhof
– Mid to late April is the best time for tulips.
– The first week of May tends to be okay too
– Hyacinths bloom in early April and these fields are also fantastic!
– Keukenhof gets VERY busy. Best to vist early in the morning or after lunch.
