Tulips wonderful but the tour to the cheese & windmills had issues

Guide was very nice but not very informative - keep asking us if we had questions. He should have had a plan in place and telling us about where we were going and about Amsterdam, etc. Cheese place quick and nice however it is a place they stop so you will spend money. The windmill village had this same type of cheese demonstration. Not enough time in the windmills to visit them all and we did not even get to see the wooden shoe maker because our guide asked us to wait until the end and then 3 buses showed up and he said you can wait but it will be long wait now and suggested we not. When we first arrived at the village there was no one at the wooden shoe demo and no reason for us to have missed it. Keukenhof was wonderful and we did have enough time there.

Really good day looking at the beautiful flowers with lots to see. However no signs for bus stop coming back and girl who was supposed to tell us the bus had arrived didn't show up until bus was leaving and it was too late. A coach was used with an A4 sized notice on the opposite side of the coach saying hop on hop off bus and so wasn't clearly visible. The girl from This is Amsterdam didn't even apologise even though a few people were complaining. We had to wait another 30 minutes and this time she lined people up to get on the bus and escorted them on. Would have given this trip 5 stars only for that.

Even as a Dutch resident: surprisingly interesting

I took the tour with a colleague from abroad who suggested it. I thought it was kind of funny as I live in Holland. But I was really surprised how interesting it all was, and I would actually consider it for future visits of foreign friends. Last time I visited Keukenhof was... like 25 years ago, and I can see why people come over from all over the world, although it was end of season for most flowers. Nice!

Keukenhof Gardens Entry & Windmill Sightseeing Cruise Reviewed by

The trip to keukenof was great. Very well organized. The place itself was great. The only problem was the bus back to Amsterdam. It was very late and then we found out the driver had to take a break. We had to wait for another bus to come. Besides that it was excellent.

The gardens were beautiful. The bus was on time. We thought we were supposed to see a video about the Gardens and we didn't. The driver never told us a thing about the sites as we traveled to Lisse. Those two things were disappointing.
