DESCRIPTION

Flowers (and not just tulips) are a real part of the Dutch culture, and for hundreds of years, the Netherlands have been the world capital for flower trading.
Meet your private, experienced guide and your chauffeur at the hotel and hop on board a luxurious, fully-equipped Mercedes V-Class minivan. Your first stop is the flower auction warehouse of Aalsmeer, where millions of flowers are in transit to and from places all over the world. Follow your guide and walk above the busy working area. From this point of view, this place really looks like a busy ant farm! A great way to understand what the flower business is all about.
Hop back in the car after this 30min visit and head out to a local flower grower in the outskirts of Amsterdam. There, you will learn how the flowers (mostly roses) are grown and how to keep your flowers at home beautiful and alive. During the flower season (in March only), you will pass by many flower fields and witness the beautiful colored horizon.
The guide and chauffeur will drop you off at the hotel at the end of this wonderful, family friendly Flowers of Holland activity.

NOTE: Due to extreme crowds during the month of March (flower season), the visit to the auction warehouse will be replaced by a visit to another flower farm where everyone in the family will be able to pick their own flowers and make their own bouquet.

FAQ's

Is this a private activity?

It sure is. Your family members will be the only ones doing this tour, with your private guide, chauffeur and vehicle. There will be other visitors at the Aalsmeer flower auction warehouse, but not necessarily at the flower grower although it is not made private for your family only.

Is it suitable for kids under 6 years old?

This tour is suitable for kids of all ages. Our vehicles are equipped with baby seats or booster seats, so we are able to accommodate to any child, regardless of their age. Our family-friendly guide will adapt to the ages of the children and make sure everyone has a great time.

Are the parents staying with the children or separated?

We always promote a family-bonding moment, where parents and children enjoy an activity together as a family. So, parents and children will not be separated. However, if you choose to send your children on this activity alone, it is possible, provided that a babysitter accompanies the children regardless of the age, for insurance purposes (our guides are not responsible for the children).

Will we spend a long time in the car?

The time spent in the car is approximately 1h15, depending on the traffic to leave and enter Amsterdam.

What happens if it rains?

The tour will take place no matter what the climate conditions are. Everything is done indoors.

Will my teenage kids like this excursion?

Sure they will. It is a great way to get out of the city and enjoy a breath of fresh air. Besides, the auction warehouse is fascinating and the stories behind the flowers and the way they grow is too.
