“Early tulips”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

While VeldHeers could not help the way too early blooming of the tulips, they could have done a lot more weeding of the tulip beds. Because of this, the grounds looked quite shabby. Not worth the price.

“Tulips and Buffalo?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2012

I challenge others to find a place where you can 20 view acres of beautiful tulips and a herd of buffalo at the same time! The views awesome. I think the outside of main building needs some fresh paint. A little TLC would go a long way. The nature around this facility is very cool. :-)

“Missed the full bloom of tulips”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

They charge $10 per person to tour their tulip grounds. Many tulips were spent or almost gone. Not worth the price.

“Doesn't worth at all the fee you pay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

Visited on 4/23/2012. Paid $10 each and found very less tulips as per the hype you get to hear in the internet. It worths only $3-5 entree fee. Anyway, the the farm is big and but only in a smaller portion they have tulips planted could be the size of a football field. You can see similar size of tulip field in Windmill Island Garden which makes no sense visting this farm only for "seeing tulips". But we did because we will never get a chance to come back again to Holland. Otherwise the store and staff are very friendly. I would not suggest if you have already seen the Windmil Island Garden and Dutch Village and not interested in seeing or buying Bison meat.

“Tulips were past their prime”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

I had called Veldheer two weeks before arrival and was told that the peak would be the last week of April. We visited on April 23 and the tulips were past their prime, but they still charged the full admission rate of $10. In fact they charged our credit card twice. The lady that swiped the card said "it did not go thru, so I had to swipe again". Now we will have to spend time dealing with the credit card company. They do have a nice variety of tulips, but nothing like the Keukenhof Gardens in Amsterdam. I would think growing conditions would be similar so the Veldheer's should get some special flowers from Amsterdam. The tulips were pretty ordinary. A bit disappointed since we drove 5 1/2 hours to visit the gardens.
