Why trust me?
Why should you trust me? I have been helping people explore The Netherlands’ hidden gems since the end of 2018. And I am also an expert when it comes to flower fields in The Netherlands. I know the exact locations for every province and the history of tulips in The Netherlands, and I’ve worked my entire teenage years in the tulip industry. I’ve helped hundreds of thousands of people to visit The Netherlands and its blooming tulip fields.
But it gets better. Because I will take you on a guided bike tour along the tulip fields in the region where I was born and raised (and still live) in The Netherlands.
NOTE: My tulip bike tours for 2024 are bookable from October 2023!

Join me on my tulip tours in Holland
It’s easy to go on a bike trip through the Holland region and the rest of The Netherlands. But, sometimes, you need a local touch to make the experience much better, and I’m here for that. I will take you to see the best tulip fields in the world (in my humble opinion), and you will be able to admire the peaceful Dutch countryside with just a small group.
I’ve been spreading tourism in The Netherlands since the end of 2018, dramatically affecting how people are welcomed. Many large and/or international companies offer tulip tours in Holland, but they do not know the country like a local does. And they are in it for the money and do not care about the country, locals or sustainable tourism in The Netherlands. What bugs me with that is that they, for instance, do not care if tourism disturbs locals’ lives or even destroys their income by walking in tulip fields. When people have harmful interactions with mass tourism, they are less keen on welcoming people again the following year. Imagine having 50 or more tourists for every inhabitant of a town. So, we’re doing something else here.
When you join one of my tours to see tulips in Holland, we will do the opposite of other tours. With this Holland tour, you will admire the best of The Netherlands in a peaceful matter: all while staying respectful and exploring this region above Amsterdam on a tulip fields tour, which not many people tend to visit. If you are visiting Amsterdam (or any other place) and want to go on a tulip fields bike tour, join me! Besides that, many people have asked me over the years to start my bike tulip tours in Holland, and I am finally listening.
You might ask yourself, ‘that’s all fun and games, but where can I see tulips and windmills in The Netherlands?’ That is a valid question really. While you’re in The Netherlands, you must take advantage of your time, which is why I will also show you some traditional Dutch windmills on the way. After all, I know where these bad boys are located as I’m from the region anyway.
These tours to see tulips in Holland are a step up from typical tulip cycling. Not in the distance, but most tulip tours in The Netherlands take place in the Zuid- Holland region. And that is precisely where millions of visitors head to during tulip season. So, that’s not what we’re going to do or witness. Absolutely not. This is one of the different Holland tours.
Instead, we will head up to the province of Noord (North)- Holland, which makes this one of the best day trips from Amsterdam to see tulips. In Noord- Holland, you can find the most flower fields in the country, so I will take you to a specific part of the province for these tulip tours in Holland.
Visiting the Holland region and going on trips for tulips is always a great idea, but it gets even better when you can explore an area with the knowledge of a Dutch local. It’s not like I’m biased or anything, but I’m simply stating facts.
I’ve created four different routes, so we will switch them up several times a week. If you want to visit from Amsterdam and join my tulip tours this 2023 once, or several times, then this is also one of the best tulip tours from Amsterdam that you can join this 2023.
