We did have some trouble without ticket not being labeled with a green dot so we were unaware that we needed to get off the cruise at the windmill. We were instructed to return to the boat and we were then let off at the mill and given a one to one tour. Then we were taken immediately by bus to the gardens. We are thankful for the quick response by management to secure the remaining of our tour.

Unforgettable tour, full of beauty and visual harmony. Unmissable, to be there, outside the path that shows us what is to come..... many tulip plantations on the way

Efficient. Punctually to the minute. Very good travel conditions. Eva the guide, speaking in 3 languages, polite, patient, smiling.

Wonderful walking tour , our guide was informative , friendly and knowledgeable. We walked to areas that we had not discovered

The gardens were world-class. The bus was clean, comfortable, and on time.
