Drive-it-yourself corona proof tour for families and kids
Whizz around the breathtaking tulip and flower fields of the most colourful region of the Netherlands at your own pace and off the tourist track with the drive-it-yourself tulip and flower fields GPS audio tour by Renzy. Bypass all the tourists standing around, and head out on country roads instead for completely unobstructed, expansive views of the stunning tulips and flowers in a 100 percent electric-powered Renault Twizy, each suitable for 2 people.
Visit the tulip fields with a self-guided off the beaten track tour
With Renzy, take a self-guided 20 km fixed GPS route amongst the colourful tulip and flower fields, and the tour includes a stop at an authentic tulip bulb farm! The audio guide tells you all the ins and outs of the area and shares cool tulip facts. Renzy does not follow tour bus routes but instead goes off the beaten tourist track. Cruise on country roads by the flowering tulips and park your Twizy at the side of the road to admire the sea of flowers up close.
Treasure hunt for kids
For the kids (aged 4-18 years), Renzy offers a challenging treasure hunt "Crack the code from the safe". During this hunt, the kids search for the secret code with which they can open the safe after the tour and win a cool prize! It's an interactive and educational tour, where the children will learn everything there is to know about the Dutch iconic tulip.
100 percent electric and super silent
Driving a Renault Twizy is super easy and fun: on the road, you certainly attract a lot of attention! The Twizy is 100 percent electric and super silent, so your tour is environmentally friendly and gentle on your ears. This is a self-guided private tour, so only your group will participate.
