We are a dynamic, small organization with years of experience in tourism. These years of experience have led us to set up fantastic tours in the Netherlands, with extra add-on features that allow our travelers to have the best possible experience in our tiny country that we proudly call the Netherlands or Holland.
As you may have experienced, the Netherlands is a crowded country. We've decided that in no circumstance we choose quantity over quality. Traveling with a small group allows us to go off the beaten tracks and it’s easier and quicker to get around. Tulip Day Tours offers only small group tours, with a maximum of 7 or 15 travelers.
We are proud to be the first and only tour operator collaborating with State Forestry Service (Staatsbosbeheer), a Dutch governmental organization dedicated to strengthen the position of nature in the Netherlands. Working together gives us the opportunity to create awareness and funding for nature in the Netherlands.
We offer 'the 'classics', such as Amsterdam Muiderslot Castle, the flower auction and Keukenhof, but also tours that demonstrate that different side of the Netherlands. Our (half) day tours explore national parks with a ranger from State Forestry Service, kayaking in a national park, visit the windmills of Kinderdijk and the island of Texel in UNESCO's Wadden Sea in the north of the Netherlands. After all, isn't it healthy and educational spending time in nature?
And although we visit places that are popular with tourists, we give our own twist to it. We, too, visit Edam. But only when the traditional cheese market, dating back to the 16th century, takes place in July and August. We combine Edam with a visit to the museum mill of the Schermerpolder in the Waterland region; an area known for its beautiful landscape.
In the end, we just want you to see the real side of the Netherlands. We want you to have a memorable, fantastic day. We want to show you how people live in the Netherlands, by taking side roads and impulsive photo stops. By letting you taste our food culture. By discussing social issues. By making sure that you have the best time ever.
