A profusion of springtime colour as we visit the world renowned, spectacular gardens of Keukenhof in Holland and the country’s sparkling, vibrant capital; Amsterdam.
Tip-toe through the tulips and be prepared for a feast on the senses as Keukenhof comes alive with the colour and scent of the blooms.
