Join us to see some of the most vibrant and beautiful flowers in the world on this wonderful garden holiday in Holland.

It’s one of most beautiful spring gardens in the world and we’ll admire the indoor and outdoor displays of bulbs, tulips, daffodils and hyacinths, which covers over 32 hectares with colour and fragrance.

We’ll also visit individual private gardens in the Northeast Polder, explore the Hortus Bulborum museum garden, and drive along the famous Bulb route to see vivid displays of colourful tulips. We’ll also have a full day to uncover the highlights of Amsterdam, including a canal tour, and we’ll have plenty of free time at leisure to enjoy some of the city’s renowned art museums or the famous flower market.
