The tour guide training from Keukenhof 2018 was great! Our lovely guide Olga went there and learned everything about the new season. We also offer private tours to the Keukenhof, for more information please check this page.
Keukenhof 2018 – training
During the ITB we met Michiel from the Keukenhof. The interest for the training was so big that the we were not able to subscribe anymore. Luckily we met Michiel and they made an exception for us. Super happy! Our lovely Italian guide Olga went there to study the park. Have you already met Olga? This friendly and super smart lady from Rome is a native speaker Italian but also speaks fluently English, Chinese and German. We must say that we are a bit jealous at her skills.
As there were so many subscribers, the guides were placed into different groups. Olga’s group started with a meeting of the tour guides. Together they had a presentation of Keukenhof in 2018. After this, the group of Olga went into the park and had a tour.
Keukenhof 2018 – flowers
The theme of Keukenhof 2018 is Romance in Flowers. These two subjects are very connected according to Keukenhof: “The most beautiful spring park in the world with it’s sea of flowers will put you in a romantic, spring mood.”.
They have over 7 million bulbs in the park, with a total variety of 800 tulips. Unfortunately not all the flowers sprout during the training. At the time of writing the wind chill of Amsterdam is -10 degrees Celsius. We had some very cold days the last couple of months so it is very hard for the flowers to come out.
The flowers inside came out a bit more, which was beautiful to see. We can not wait for the flower season so we can see all the different varieties of flowers bloom!
Keukenhof 2018 – visit
The park is open in 2018 from March 22 until May 13. Check out their website for more information. We hope to guide you soon!
