" Nothing express how amazed I were from this garden. It takes place from March till the half of May. It's a paradise of flowers. Reachable with a bus organized by the festival. It's recommended to buy the combined ticket. Visit it on April or May."
" A place worth watching in your lifetime... All varieties of tulips are available here... You will see everyone zooming their cameras to the all varieties of tulips and taking pictures... Kids loved the flowers and were ready to have the pictures in the garden 😁😁"
" It’s one of the most busiest place during the season. We went during 1st week of May and it was raining on and off but place was beautiful and we had wonderful time. There hundreds of plants, flowers and decorative trees. There are just 2 or 3 places for eating and cash was only accepted for buying ice creams. Wind mill was a surprise for us and we were allowed to go inside and climb as well"
" I would best describe this place as the Disney world of gardens, if you’ve ever been you’ll know that it is packed with mobs of tourists, a lot to see, and lines of people trying to take pictures with all the flowers. If you are here during the season it’s a must see the designs and tulips are incredible. If your not into mobs of people hold off for a less busy day and time. It’s also a big plus they allow you to bring your dog and outside food!"
" Well worth the visit during the 7 weeks that it is open! Fascinating displays, both inside the pavilions and outside, with breathtakingly stunning centrepieces in each area. The boat rides and guided tours are also very worthwhile. More than just a flower show or botanical gardens. Definitely a must visit! :-)"
