At Holidays in Holland, we help you to visit like a local and travel within Europe like no other. That is the reason we have some amazing excursions that you can book yourself. In addition to this, we offer you extraordinary excursions that will mesmerize you. Extraordinary excursions are very unique as the name says. During these tours, you will be able to see the real culture, the handwork and the traditions in Europe. We are organizing these excursions because otherwise you would not be able to get such an experience in Sri Lanka.
Not only see Tulips but Pluck them
Most of the travelers who are coming on Holidays to Holland visit the Flower fields in the country. However they only get to see the flowers and not to touch them. At Holidays in Holland, we want to do something different in giving you more freedom. In this manner , we want you to feel and get the real experience in visiting a tulip field
The excursion starts with visiting a tulip field or a similar other sort of flower field where you also get to walk with the flowers along the rows. While walking we invite you to pluck the flowers as much as you can. Only thing you have to remember is that once you pluck, then you have to buy them. So you can pluck for a flower bouquet or otherwise take back to Sri Lanka as a flower souvenir.
In the flower shop, you can calculate the value of the flowers you have plucked and according to that amount you can take away the flowers.
Visit a real Dutch Cheese farm
Holland is very popular for its Cheese, specially for her Edam and Gouda varieties. These cheeses are exported to many countries and we have it in our supermarkets as circular, ball shaped cheese. But have you ever visited a real Cheese farm and seen how cheese is produced? This is what we are offering you.
During this Cheese farm excursion, we will take you to a cheese farm where there are 4 varieties of cattle ranging from Dutch Frisian to Lakenvelders.
