What people are saying about South Holland

This was a great tour!! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and very nice, and he explained everything very well! Bus ride was great the flowers were amazing and the windmills were beautiful. Definitely recommend this tour with this company. The best!!

The gardens and windmills were amazing. It was a long day! Our guide was lovely, but she talked a little too much on the bus, mostly in Spanish and very loudly. Some quiet for a bit would have been nice.

Liked being in small group setting, our tour guide, Alex , was knowledgeable and very friendly. Gave us some good tips and then left us to explore ourselves… I like that!
