Of course, you know them well, the terrific pictures of the Dutch Tulips. Thousands in a row. Regardless of the winter, you can see them with your own eyes at a greenhouse. We are welcoming you at this greenhouse, where the tulips grow and will be prepared for sales. I will inform you about the growing process and the history of the tulip. In the meanwhile we are taking a walk to the greenhouse and I will explain you everything I know. After that, it is time for a typical Duth lunch between the flowers. You can make incredible pictures!
Let me introduce myself … I’m Ellen, 40 years old and living in Heiloo. A village just below Alkmaar. You can rightly call me a true Noordhollandse, because I have been living in this region all my life. As a teenager I already dreamed of showing people showing them the real Netherlands. Only twenty years later did I really dare to pursue that dream. I quit my job and started as a guide. During my tours I not only tell you things worth knowing about the Netherlands from the past, but especially what life is like here right now. What is on the dinner table, how do our kids grow up, how do we think about social issues and why are many Dutch people speaking English. I also do the tours in German, if you like.
You are getting a typical Dutch lunch, with luxury bread and some delicous salads.
We are visiting a greenhouse, which is normally not open for public. We will see thousands of tulips
