Meet your local guide in the lobby of your hotel and depart for a half day tulip excursion. Depart the hotel by private car for a drive through the countryside for about one hour and admire several growing fields along the way. A warm welcome in one of the warehouses which are rebuild to an atmospheric room with seats for everybody. Here a professional presentation will be given about the growing process of the tulip, from bulb to flower. This presentation will take approx. 15 minutes. Coffee and/or tea will be served, eventually combined with fresh pie or even lunch. After the presentation the guided tour of the nursery starts. Walk around in greenhouses where employees are picking the tulips. The green houses have a capacity over 1 million tulips per cycle of three weeks. You will see the tulips in different stages of growth, varying from just above the soil until tulips in bloom and meet the ultra-modern tulip-bunching-robot. This machine makes bunches of 10 tulips by using X-ray technology. The newest invention in tulip production. You can also have a look in the cold stores where the bulbs get their temperature treatment which they need to get the tulips in bloom in right time. The greenery is qualified according to MPS requirements (Sustainable Quality in Horticulture) and has the A-Qualification. During the guided tour you will also be informed about the environmental measurements of the greenhouse. As a result of the blooming season the excursions are possible from the end of December until the beginning of May.  the last weeks of the season there are no tulips left in the green houses. In this time we will make a guided tour in the green houses and along the installations, but we will see the flowers outside in the fields. End of this tour will be back at your hotel in Amsterdam.
