It was a fun trip, as we had a short ride to get the tickets on the ferry boat. Then you walk to office to redeem voucher for tickets. Best to do this early to get a good time. We spent 2 hours there and saw lots, some may wish longer. Bus ride back to drop off point was easy and about an hour ride. Back on the ferry and then we caught a tram to explore some more of the city.
Bus trip out to Keukenhof was fine. Met at the A'Dam meeting area, loaded the bus and off we went. About half full on the bus but is was March 27 so not a huge crowd headed to the gardens. Short trip as advertised. Short walk from parking lot. Keukenhof is huge. I can see there will be really large crowds when the outdoor tulips bloom. There were some outside but thousands in the buildings. Hundreds of colors and styles. More than you can ever imagine. Took a lot of pictures. There were plenty of bathrooms and eating/drinking stops along the route. A very beautiful place. I would say a must see when in Amsterdam. The Viator tour is the way to go. Print out voucher, get on the bus, view the tulips. A Great Day in the Netherlands.
This was a fantastic tour of the gardens. Very easy to catch the bus. Ferry ride from the terminal-over to Adam tower-where bus was located. About a 45 minute ride to the gardens. The gardens are absolutely amazing. You will see about 4 indoor buildings where they have created flower arrangements as works of art. The rest of the outdoor gardens are equally amazing. We went during the last 5 days and there was still plenty to see. Worth going earlier if you want to see the field where they harvest the tulips-but plenty to see if you go later as well.
Great option from getting from Amsterdam Centraal to Keukenhof. I would recommend getting there early as there are no markings on where to find the bus. The audio on the bus was broken so that was a bummer. It was great having the tickets but you still wait in line with everyone else who has tickets. The bus on the way home had broken air conditioning and it was in the mid 80's that day. The people were great.
Actually I was left by the Premium Tour Bus because I went to the toilet but I came back to the office and they gave me a new ticket with Hop On Hop Off Bus Keukenhof Tour with no guide. But that was OK as I still made it to the Keukenhof. The tulip park was so large and many kind of beautiful colors tulips. A'DAM Lookout Tower ticket only for photo from the tower to see the city of Holland. But if you wanna try the highest swing then you have to pay for EUR 5. I paid and tried the highest swing but too bad the swing officer couldn't help to take the pic of me because he didn't know how to turn on my DSLR camera. It was disappointed because I won't pay more for another swing for EUR 5 again because I have to get out of there and join for Hop On Hop Off Boat and Bus Tour.
