A ride punctuated by visits, castle, tulip experience... Lots of historical information, the opportunity to learn more about the culture of tulips and the past of this beautiful region, while cycling! Our guide was super nice and spoiled us with little touches along the ride. We were 4 and loved it!!!

An amazing experience not to be missed while you are in Amsterdam! Those places are MUST! Mind blowing attractions & above the host & the guide Mr. Abdul Baqi is the key success factor (Thanks a lot)

Ingrid was great. Although it is end season she took us to see the reamining tulip fields. And Tulip Expirience was the best. I do recommend. Keukenhoff is great, but this tour is a plus.

Purchase, processing, also on site was easy, tour interesting, we would have wished for even more and thicker pots in the port.

Wonderful introduction to the port of Rotterdam. Clear explanation about this.
