It was a dream and it came true! Visited twice on April 18th and April 20! A few logistical observations:
1) the combiticket is worth it, we took a bus 858 from Schiphol airport (arrival area 3/4) and in some 25 minutes you arrive to Lisse enjoying along your way the tulip fields in yellow and purple or rose colours
2) as we went there twice, for the second entrance we used the Holland Pass (the tulip ticket for garden entrance, and exchanged in GWK travelex office the windmill ticket for a roundtrip bus connection ticket, you could use 858 bus and even the 197 bus line back to Amsterdam. It is also easy taking a train to Schiphol and back, but we were a bit unlucky as on the weekend they had some engineering works so you take a train+a bus. But it was not a big problem!
3) you can also pick up a very nice souveneers in the shops inside the Park
4) plan to visit on weekday as over the weekends it could be too crowded. On the day of the Flower Parade it was very crowded and as the road is blocked, you can travel back to Schiphol only once the parade is finished. Tip: go to enjoy the garden while the Parade, you won't miss too much if you do not see the parade, you could then enjoy the Garden a bit less crowded.
Would be dreaming to come back next year!
Enjoy the spring!
