Full description
Visit two traditional tulip farms in Heemskerk, Holland, where farmers grow and cultivate tulips on large fields and in greenhouses. Whilst there, learn how professionals in the flower industry from all over the world visit these tulip farms to admire their quality flowers. As more tulip factories that grow tulips on crates emerge, the farms that grow tulips the traditional way are slowly dying out. This tour provides you with the opportunity to take a look behind the scenes of these farms that grow tulips using traditional methods. Enjoy live commentary in English and visit two traditional tulip nurseries, with a minivan used to transfer between the two farms. Discover how tulips are grown and cultivated using traditional methods in order to get tulips of the best quality. A brief movie about the tulip-growing process provides you with some more insight about the industry, and your tour concludes with a visit to the sand fields where the tulips are grown.
