Corona-proof traveling in the Netherlands


Now that corona has changed the world, carefree traveling seems not to be a given anymore. Before corona we could make travel plans and book tours without the need to wonder if you'd get your money back upon cancelation. More important, we didn't have to worry about being infected with a (deadly) virus.

But now that borders are opening and life is slowly getting back to 'normal' (whatever that is), tourism is also getting started #starttourism. Protocols are put in place to that people can go back to enjoying traveling by exploring and discovering the world. Or hopefully, our tiny country that we proudly call the Netherlands or Holland.

The corona protocol that we've put in place allows our travelers to enjoy our authentic, off-the-beaten path tours just as carefree as before corona. And at all times we guarantee our 24-hr free cancelation policy; at any moment, but up to 24 hours before the tour, cancel with just one click and receive a full refund instantly. So no need to worry about that.

Our adjustments do affect tour availability as group sizes are reduced. Moreover, several tours are not available for booking because social distancing can't be guaranteed or because venues have closed. To see what's available when, just check the tours by season or check the booking engines of the respective tour that you're looking at. For upcoming public tours departing from Amsterdam you can also have a look here.

When in doubt, just send us a message by the messenger on this page or send a WhatsApp message to +31648212132. We are always happy to answer your questions.

Tulip Day Tours | Corona protocol

With respect to transportation and corona, we follow the adhere to the Royal Dutch Transport sector protocol* as published on the website of the Dutch government**. In order to make our travelers feel as safe and comfortable as possible we have added a number of measures of our own to the protocol, such as temperature checks and mandatory use of anti-bacterial handgel.

    ‐ The maximum group size for private tours is six travelers, provided that they form a household. Before the start of the tour Tulip Day Tours has to be notified in writing that the travelers are a ‘household’, so that the guide can provide proof of this in case of possible checks by community service officers;

    ‐ The maximum group size for private tours consisting of two households is four travelers, one household per seating row in the vehicle. No written notification needed;

    ‐ The maximum group size for all small public group tours is four travelers: one travel party per row in the vehicle - a travel party is a solo traveler or a duo/couple traveling together;

    ‐ Seating rows in our vehicles are separated by screens;

    ‐ All small public group tours include hotel pick-up & drop-off in the city of Amsterdam; only when booked directly on this website;

    ‐ All private tours include pick-up & drop-off anywhere in the region;

    ‐ Each tour is tailored to the possibilities and challenges of that respective tour; if needed, guides play with the timings in such a way that there’s enough space to enjoy the tour;

    ‐ Start times for all small public group tours remain the same as published on the respective webpage. Start times for private tours are an indication and are reconfirmed after booking based on traveler's pick-up address and preference;

    ‐ Before boarding the vehicle the travelers must answer the guide's questions about corona symptoms, undergo a temperature check and use the provided anti-bacterial hand gel;

    ‐ Travelers place their own luggage in the vehicle, get in and out of the vehicle themselves and fasten their own seatbelts;

    ‐ While in the vehicle travelers must wear the provided face mask -this does not apply to private tours consisting of one household;

    ‐ Our vehicles are sanitized before, during and after each tour;

    ‐ At all times we guarantee our 24-hr free cancelation policy. At any given moment, but up to 24 hours before the tour, cancel with just one click and receive a full refund instantly.
