1. Magical Delft and the Keukenhof Estate: Tulips Galore
From early April to mid-May you will get to visit Keukenhof, close to Amsterdam, and show you the tulips at their best. This tour has it all: you will enjoy the fragrances and the colors of 7 million flowers as well as the unearthly beauty of historical Delft. After a leisurely drive through the countryside you'll see the vast bulb fields in full blossom as well as the typical windmills. First, you'll visit Delft which is said to be the most charming town of the Netherlands. You will marvel at the picturesque canals, the city hall, the Old and the New Church that also houses the underground crypt of the Dutch Royal Family. In your free time, you will most certainly browse through the countless small but cozy Delft arts and crafts shops. After lunch and on the way to the Keukenhof estate you'll hear about the history and importance of tulip growing. And then for three hours, you enjoy the many gardens and beautiful pavilions which show a great collection of tulips, hyacinths, daffodils, orchids, roses, carnations, irises, lilies and other flowers.
