Floriade, Keukenhof 
and Amsterdam 2002

My first trip to Holland, I didn’t know what to expect, but since I was meeting other gardeners and touring some of Holland's most wonderful gardens, it really didn’t matter!

Our hotel was out of Amsterdam in a place called Edmond ann Zee. It offered us a quiet place with a view of the ocean that was worth the drive. A wonderful little town and our hotel was right next to the street that had great little shops on either side of the road.

Right next to the hotel, on a small hill, stood a lighthouse, which has a long and historic history.

Some of the comments from the guests…

Awesome trip – Floriade was awesome and Keukenhof was fabulous!

Great rooms, excellent service

The pace each day was unhurried, sights well organized…

I enjoyed the flexibility you offered and the hotel location was great!

This was my third tour with you … and I shall be back!

Final dinner on the canal was a very nice surprise…

Nice to have an almost totally inclusive package..

Your gifts, especially the bag and tulip were very nice touches. The tulip given so early in the trip was a daily welcome back to our room … excellent idea!

Excellent trip and very well organized. You have a very nice manner with your guests…

I am thrilled – I really didn’t have an idea of how great it would be.

Very pleased with the extras that were added. 

The dinner cruise on the canal was a ‘10’!


Hope you enjoyed this tour and I look forward to seeing you on one of our future tours ... Donna
