Tour to Keukenhof Gardens

I’m planning to visit Keukenhof Gardens when they open in March 2024. I’m looking for information on a company that would provide round trip transportation from our hotel in Amsterdam. Any suggestions would be most appreciated. Thanks

Closer to the opening date, various tours will show up on Keukenhof website or when googled. Some provide bus from near Centraal Station to Gardens, admission and return.

Thanks for the reply. Guess I’ll just have to be patient and wait a little longer before making plans!

I don't mean to twist your arm, but this is a massive annual event. Unless it is your personal preference, there is no need to book a car service from your hotel - assuming you are going to use Amsterdam public transportation for other purposes. There will be a huge temporary full-size bus service, probably more than one company.

When we need a car service in a city, we usually start with the hotel's land partner, because we assume that they have a strong incentive to do a good job. I note that you used the word tour, but then only mentioned "round trip transportation". Keukenhof is far enough from downtown Amsterdam that it might be expensive to pay a driver to make two "empty journeys", just guessing.

We happened to have a car for this trip, and were not sleeping in Amsterdam yet. I was sorry I returned the car in actual Amsterdam upon our arrival, it was a nightmare on the roads. We combined Alsmeer Flower Auction with Keukenhof, even though they are not "adjacent."

Keukenhof is usually very crowded. I would not be inclined to want to be in a group tour there. I simply mean that we visit lots of Public Gardens, which this is equivalent to. Very nice place, by the way.
