1. Re: arrive on 6 april 2013, will tulips bloom around this time?

Unfortunately there isn't this kind of package anymore.

See for prices and frequency of public transport http://9292.nl/en

(train to Haarlem than bus 50 to keukenhof might not be the quickest route. Train to Schiphol airport an take the bus there is quicker)

Entrance ticket for the keukenhof is sold online http://www.keukenhof.nl/en/477/entree.html or at the cashier at Keukenhof.

Will the tulips bloom depends on the weather/temp during 4 weeks before. See http://www.flickr.com/photos/nring23/ for photos of last couple of years.

Visit Tripadvisor about a week before you travel and you will have the latest update for tulip fields, keukenhof, blooming, etc. (search for flower update in Tripadvisor to see the updates of previous years)

Normally some early tulips will bloom on the fields around this date. But everything depends on the weather. At least you will find blooming daffodils and hyacinths on the fields. At the Keukenhof can find a lot of tulips at this date.

If you want to go to Haarlem you can take bus 50 from Lisse to Haarlem station. (it doesn't stop at the bus stop at Keukenhof directly, but within walking distance) see 9292 for instructions.

As Nring said, you can take bus 50 to Lisse. Get out at busstop "De Nachtegaal". From there you can walk along the flower fields to the entrance of the Keukenhof in about 10 minutes.
