It was a lovely cruise. The only negative was I told the host I would not be going to Keukenhoff Gardens after the cruise and he snatched the ticket away from me before I could say anything. The next day I had some time to go, but no ticket even though I had paid for one.

Excellent organization. The times to wait for latecomers are a bit long. Nonetheless, the day was pleasant. The very comfortable boat allows you to see very beautiful views of the countryside. Fantastic gardens

Very good experience. We advise you to register at the beginning of the season as the tulips are no longer at their peak. Still, I strongly recommend the visit and the package purchased is well worth it.

A different experience than when you typically look at old ruins etc.

easy to find the meeting point, nice guide and arrangments
