Skip the tour buses and ride like a VIP.
And see millions of tulips before your eyes.
Meet Leander, a true local who knows just where to take you to escape the crowds and experience millions of tulips up close.
Who is Leander?
Meet Leander. A firefighter by day and the owner of Amsterdam Countryside Tours, he was inspired to start his tour company after joining an art tour in Miami, USA. As proud locals, he and his team love giving travellers the real Dutch experience. It’s no wonder his tour has won an AirBnB award for “Best Expertise”.
What's This Experience About?
This all-inclusive experience is seasonal. For just 6 weeks in March and April, endless rows of hyacinths, daffodils and tulips come into full bloom! Leander and team takes you to the best spots to experience them where no tour buses can. Visit a tulip bulb farmer, explore the fields and learn about all things tulip! But that’s not all. Connect over a delicious Dutch apple by the North Sea and enjoy the view. Book early to avoid disappointment.

“If you are looking for a tour in Amsterdam look no further. I had the best experience imaginable touring the tulip fields. We were able to see many private fields with beautiful views, varied colors, and different stages of the intricate tulip turnover process. The most impressive part was Leander’s vast knowledge of processing and history atop of his ability to communicate such knowledge.”
“This. Is. Amazing. If seeing tulips in Holland is on your bucket list, this is the way to do it. Our host Phillip was warm and friendly and spent more time than he needed to accommodate our multiple requests for photos. This is a chance to see the tulips far away from the crowds and tour buses, and you’ve never really experienced something like the smell of 10,000 hyacinths in a peaceful field. The apple pie and coffee were the absolute perfect end to a perfect day. I would 110% recommend this to any friends traveling to Amsterdam in the springtime.
“Leander created a unique and wonderful experience. When we arrive at the Keukenhof Gardens, he knew the direction to take us away from the crowds. He gave us time to explore while guiding us through the gardens. I learned a few tips about flower gardening and caring for tulips. I’ll put them to good use as I was able to order tulip bulbs directly from the farmer of my favorite tulips in Keukenhof Gardens. (Thank you, Leander!) And, visiting the beach and having Dutch apple pie was a great bonus. I highly recommend this private tour with Leander!”
Maybe it’s because he’s a firefighter. You can’t help but feel safe around Leander. He’s got everything under control. It’s all cool. When my family came over to visit, I (Alexandra) knew Leander would give them the Dutch cultural experience of their lives. Because of his relationships with everyone — from the cheese to clog makers, flower farmers to windmill wizards — we were able to enter and experience places no one else could. This is exactly why we’re proud to have Leander in our inner circle.
