The world's most beautiful spring garden
A glorious visual feast awaits visitors in the 'Bulbfields' at Keukenhof Gardens. This 32-hectare site is planted with some seven million flower bulbs, and when they bloom they become a magnificent spectacle, unique throughout the world - an explosion of colour which has become one of Holland's most popular tourist attractions.
Leaving the local area in the early morning we travel to Dover or Folkestone for our channel crossing. Once in France, we continue to Holland, arriving at our hotel by mid to late evening.
Today we visit Keukenhof Gardens. Here acres of daffodils, crocuses, narcissi and hyacinths carpet the ground with stunning colour, and you'll have the opportunity to explore or join our optional Bulbfield Cruise before we return to the hotel in the late afternoon.
Today we'll visit cosmopolitan Amsterdam. Alternatively join our optional excursion to visit a traditional cheese farm, a wooden shoe factory and the pretty seaside resort of Volendam.
Before we return to the hotel, you'll have the opportunity to join our optional Amsterdam canal cruise, taking in the Royal Palace and world-renowned Rijksmuseum - home to the artwork of the Dutch masters. Cruising along the city's meandering network of canals is one of the best ways to see this beautiful city.
Today we'll begin our journey home. En route we'll make a short stop in Bruges, famous for its picturesque network of canals, fine medieval architecture and magnificent town square. After time to relax and explore we'll continue to Calais to board the ferry/Eurotunnel and head home, arriving in the local area by the late evening.
