Private Tulip Tours From Amsterdam
Spring 2023

Late March - Mid May

The two private tour itineraries detailed below are largely the same as the small-group tour itineraries from the home page. However, our private tours last a bit longer and offer more flexibility. To inquire about or book a private tour with us, simply contact us via the contact form below and we’ll respond promptly.

Off-The-Beaten-Track Private Tulips Tour

Duration: 6 hours
Cost: €590 for 1-3 people, €620 for 4 people, €690 for 5-8
Food and windmill admission not included

This tour is our pride and joy and by taking it private you give yourself a bit more flexibility and we allow it to last a little bit longer. We can also tweak the itinerary to fit your needs (for example, if you’ve already visited or will visit a windmill we can swap this out for another stop).

We start out exploring the countryside to the north of Amsterdam known as Waterland. These are tiny country roads, and we’ll skirt the edge of the largest lake in Western Europe. We’ll stop at an unspoiled Golden Age town, with architecture largely from the 1500s and 1600s.

After that we’ll head to the Beemster region, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a tulips growing region. We’ll visit a private tulips farm, where we’ll be the only visitors. We finish off with a trip to an original working windmill from the 1630s. You’ll see inside it and learn about it. At the windmill we’ll also have a picnic lunch of a Dutch cheese sandwich, Dutch apple pie, and a beer!

In the beginning part of the season we visit a hyacinths farm instead of a tulips fields. We detail that more on the booking calendar page. Please read in detail.

On most tours we can also arrange a meet-and-greet with one of the tulip farmers. Just ask us about it if it appeals.

AVAILABILITY: We actually offer this exact same itinerary all year-round, but minus tulips, via our sister site, www.amsterdamwindmilltours.com. It’s a very scenic and iconic route. If you visit late March or or mid May, there is less certainty about finding a field of flowers in bloom. However, if there is one we’ll find it.
If you visit in early April, it’ll likely be a field of hyacinths we visit. And in previous years, we’ve been able to find a tulips field in bloom as late as May 13, (though we can’t guarantee it).

Costs & Vehicles & Inflation

Our tours differ a little in cost depending on how many people there are. This reflects the cost of renting a smaller of bigger vehicle. We do not include admission or food costs as this gives you more flexibility in deciding exactly what you want to do. For example, if you want a picnic lunch or to stop at a restaurant.

In previous years we rented a new Mercedes van for groups of four or more people. The price of this, in addition to fuel, has risen considerably. We have not raised prices in accordance with this, and for Spring 2023 we’ll likely rent a less luxurious (but still sufficient) vehicle. If luxury is more important to you, you can upgrade at cost.

Please note: If you book with us, we take a small deposit at the time of booking and the balance shortly before your tour. We haven’t raised our prices in line with inflation. Please be aware of a potential bump of €20 – €30 per tour between the time of booking and final payment. However, we hope not to have do this, and it’s a policy we are operating in good faith.
