About the tour

In 1949 a group of 20 leading flower bulb growers and exporters came up with the plan to use the estate to exhibit spring-flowering bulbs, signaling the birth of Keukenhof as a spring park. The park opened its gates to the public in 1950 and was an instant success, with 236,000 visitors in the first year alone. 2021 will be the 72th edition of Keukenhof, with A World Of Colours as its theme. During the past 71 years Keukenhof developed into a world-famous attraction with over 6 million tulips and other Queens of Spring.

Meet Ton


After his graduation in social geography, just in between the big bang and the collapse of the Roman empire, Ton worked on a science program for children and on urban planning in Amsterdam. He found out that his happiest moments were those were the interaction was not with the keyboard but with people. This made him decide to make a living out of guiding. Initially related to urban planning and architecture, later on the scope became much wider: art, history, society. As a social geographer Ton always looks for the reasons behind present day reality: why was a town founded? Why did it grow, or not? Why such an enormous church or city hall in a small town? Ton's philosophy about life is rather simple. He believes the sense of being is Sharing LKW: Love, Knowledge, Wine.

Ton was Ton did a good tour. Sadly the internet connection was not good so we couldn’t see the flowers well..... but the reason I gave him 5* was because he was friendly and chatty, he tried his best...... and then sent us photos of what he saw in the gardens. Over and beyond, thank you very much.
