  • Got an early start to see how hectic it was but you had to watch in ore how everyone was moving around it was amazing
  • If you want a real close-up view of the famous Flora Holland flower auction -- not just from an observation deck -- then you must arrange a private tour. Our travel agent quoted an astronomical price, so I looked on my own and found Peter Boers of Flower Tours Holland. I cannot recommend him enough. This was a VERY behind-the-scenes and personal tour of a huge, complicated, and fascinating place. Visit the website and write to Peter and he will answer any questions you have and customize a day around exactly what you are interested in seeing. For us, that meant focusing on Flora Holland itself. We took Peter's advice and booked this on a date when there was sure to be lots of activity. If you ever wanted to know where "Dutch Auctions" originated and how they work, this is the place! Peter took us right into the huge auction rooms where we sat among the bidders. I could have stayed all day, but there was more to see, including the bustling warehouses with racks upon racks of flowers coming in from all over the world, cycling through the auction rooms and getting moved about for distribution to flower buyers and distributors. This is the second largest building in the world (the largest is used to build Boeing 787s), and you feel it. The sheer size and constant motion is like something from a Pixar movie. There are observation decks above it all, but Peter took us right down onto the floor for a tour between the constantly-moving racks of flowers. We saw everything, and were able to explore and learn about how flowers are moved around the world, while also getting a plethora of practical gardening (and flower buying) tips from Peter. Peter also took us to a wholesalers area where small lots and supplies can be purchased. Unfortunately, it was our last day in Holland so we could not take advantage. You don't have to be a gardener or a business person to appreciate this visit, but if there's anybody in your party who loves gardening, or who is interested in business, then this tour will be particularly fun and valuable. This was one of the highlights of our visit to The Netherlands and we have recommended Peter both to our travel agent and to several friends.
