Itinerary:  Travel directly to the Netherlands, arriving at Clara Maria, where the age-old tradition of cheese production and wooden shoe making will be brought to life. After a gracious Dutch breakfast provided by the farm host and hostess (included), experience the Dutch tradition of making cheese, seeing the production from start to the tasty finish!  Of course, there is always time to sample more of this renowned export and even purchase some favourites for family and friends.  Many Dutch souvenirs are available here – purchase shoes as a souvenir of the learning experience!

Continue on to the Keukenhof Spring Gardens (entrance fee included), formerly a Dutch royal hunting estate and kitchen garden, with its amazingly beautiful tulip fields. Last year the Garden’s theme is Van Gogh, whose death was 125 years ago. Displays will include bulb mosaics of his portrait and his paintings, the largest of which will include over 50,000 bulbs! The colorful splendor will reveal itself in all its floral glory in the spring of 2015.

The 8 acre park displays millions of bulb flowers, in outdoor landscapes and indoor pavilions, and is one of the country’s major attractions.  Experience the differences displayed in inspirational gardens:  the city garden, the deck garden, the bridal path and bridal garden.  Explore the canals and functioning windmill.  Families can enjoy wandering the boxwood maze, with the children’s farm nearby, and overlooking the fields of blooming tulips surrounding the Park.  The indoor pavilions highlight various grower competitions, providing decorative displays richly arranged to fascinate the senses!  At different times, the pavilions may show off entire sections of freesia, lilies, roses, amaryllis, gerbera or astroemeria.  Art in the Park delights visitors with statues throughout the grounds.  Or, go to the windmill and purchase a boat ticket for an exceptional experience – seeing the beautiful landscapes from water level in a “whisper boat” on the shallow water routes intersecting the park.

Have the opportunity for lunch (not included) and souvenir shopping at some of the many locations within the park or enjoy your own picnic brought from home.  RTT has arranged a stay which allows ample time to experience all the Keukenhof has to offer!
