Max 13 Guests per Group
As a proud official sponsor of the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, we can't wait to take you to the region's best spring attraction! Throughout April, the Skagit Valley's fields burst with a riot of color during the annual Tulip Festival. While best known for the Tulip Festival, the Skagit Valley is also home to incredibly fresh ingredients and amazing food.
You’ll get “skip-the-line” access to both main tulip festival areas, enjoy a stop for lunch in the gorgeous seaside town of La Conner, and round out the afternoon with local wine tasting, hand-crafted cheeses and locally baked bread before returning to Seattle.
Door-to-Door from Seattle
Door-to-door service is provided from any hotels in and around downtown Seattle. A second pick-up is also available from the Ash Way Park & Ride, a convenience spot for people staying north of Seattle. Not staying near downtown Seattle or near Lynwood? Contact us to ask about joining this tour!
Our guests get to “skip-the-line” at both Roozengaarde and Tulip Town, the two main tulip viewing areas. Even on busy weekends with long lines, our guests rarely wait more than a minute or two to get in.
Wine & Food Tasting Too!
After we’re done viewing the tulips, we’ll stop by a local winery where adults will enjoy a complimentary wine tasting flight along with an artisanal cheese platter, organic bread, and other delicious finger food, all made locally in the Skagit Valley.
We don’t want to bring a crowd with us! Our groups are small, this makes for a better experience for you and for the rest of the guests on tour.
Full Time Guide & Driver
Your guide will show you the best spots for photos, share some history of the Skagit Valley throughout the day, and recommend local restaurants and cafes where you can enjoy lunch. With curb-to-curb service, you’ll never have to worry about finding parking. Besides, our last stop is at a winery, so you’ll be glad to have a designated driver at the helm!
Visit La Conner for Lunch
We’ll stop in the charming seaside town of La Conner for lunch. La Conner is widely recognized as one of the most scenic seaside towns in Washington State. Pressed up against a lively waterway, La Conner is also rich with history. Many of the town’s buildings date to the late 19th century and there are many options for lunch as well as local gifts.
Transport in our Comfortable high-roof van
You’ll be transported in our comfortable high-roof, extended length Ford Transit passenger van. We’ve got plenty of room not only for your head and knees, but also ample storage in the rear compartment. If you’d like to bring along a day bag, an extra pair of sneakers for the ride home or anything like that, we’ve got room for that and more.
SEE and TASTE More of the Skagit Valley
While we’re not the only tour operator to offer a “tulip tour,” we are the only tour company to offer such a full day and provide an all inclusive experience. The Skagit Valley has so much to offer. We love sharing some of the area’s local food and wine businesses with our guests to give a more well rounded impression of this fascinating region. We look forward to sharing it with you!
Experience the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival with a premium small group tour. With us, you'll get "skip-the-line" access to two of the top tulip viewing areas, Roozengaarde and Tulip Town. We'll visit the gorgeous seaside town of La Conner for lunch, and round out our day with wine tasting at a charming local winery with complimentary hand-made cheese pairings and freshly baked organic bread. There's no better way to enjoy the Tulip Festival!
1) Escape the City in Style
Your tour will begin when your guide and driver picks you up at your Seattle hotel in our comfortable high-roof, extended length van. As we drive north, you'll get your first glimpses of the snow capped North Cascade mountains and Mt. Baker on clear days. After about an hour on the highway, we'll make our way along the Skagit Valley's back roads and get our first glimpses of fields of daffodils and tulips stretching before us.
2) Morning Tulip Viewing
Your first stop of the day will be at Roozengaarde, the largest tulip producer in North America. Roozengaarde can get very busy during peak tulip season, but you'll skip directly to the front of the line. Roozengaarde's tulip display garden is on 5 acres and is planted with approximately 250,000 tulips each year. We will spend approximately 2 hours at Roozengaarde before proceeding on to the historic seaside village of La Conner.
3) La Conner Lunch Stop
You will have about 90 minutes to explore beautiful seaside La Conner, have lunch at one of the village's many restaurants, and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea at one of the many bakeries and shops lining the waterfront.
3) Afternoon Tulip Viewing
After lunch, we'll be energized and ready for more tulip viewing. This time, we'll stop into Tulip Town, the second tulip viewing area in the Skagit Valley. At Tulip Town, you will also skip-the-line and head directly into the tulip viewing area. In addition to the expansive tulip viewing areas, Tulip Town also has a delightful gift shop featuring local artists' work and locally crafted keepsakes. You will have approximately 1.5 hours to view and enjoy the Tulip Town display area.
4) Wine Tasting, Artisanal Cheese, Organic Bread
Last, we'll stop at a local winery where we'll treat you to a complimentary wine tasting flight, local cheeses and organic bread. On sunny days, we'll sit outside looking across the fields toward the mountains in the distance, enjoying wine and snacks.
5) Return to Seattle After an Amazing Tour
Your guide (and designated driver!) will take the group back to Seattle and drop you off directly at your downtown hotel. Depending on traffic, we'll get back to Seattle at about 5:00pm.
You're just a couple of clicks away from joining the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival, Wine & Food Tour.
