You then enjoy a guided group tour* through the greenhouses of the nursery that boasts a capacity of over 1 million tulips per a cycle of three weeks. You witness employees picking the tulips and even see the ultra-modern tulip-bunching-robot.

Day 4: Largest Flower Auction & Windmills of Holland
Following early breakfast, you meet your guide-driver in the hotel lobby and continue exploring famous touristic attractions around Amsterdam.
In about 0.5 h driving from the capital, you arrive in the largest flower auction in the world, called 'Royal Flora Holland'. With its floor space covering 990,000 sqm (10.6 million sq ft), the auction building is in the top of largest buildings, and about 20 million flowers are sold here every day.
A bunch of tractors with flower trolleys swarming around, tension in the auction rooms - this all creates the unique atmosphere of the international flower and plant trade. Flowers are a fresh product, so they need to travel from the supplier to the customer (who may live in another part of the world) within 24 hours. Your guide explains you the mechanism of pricing on this market caused by the characteristics of the product.
In the second part of the tour, you head to the north to explore Zaanse Schans. You discover the little authentic village and its collection of well-preserved historic windmills and houses. The entrance to one of the windmills is included.
