Kinderdijk is enchanting! It was so interesting to see 19 windmills and how this feat of engineering has helped control the water in Holland. We also went to The Hague, known here as Den Haag, and saw the International Criminal Court, various embassies, and the nearby beach area, courtesy of our guide and driver Theo…who was fabulous and gave us so much interesting information! A definite 5 star tour!

We had a very nice bike tour last Saturday. The guide told everything very clearly, cycled along many beautiful places. She took her time. In between she told us about sights that we didn't pass and that are worth a visit. The bikes were fine.

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!

Great tour. For us there is no better way of a city tour. You can see so much by bike and still stop and learn something every now and then.

Very interesting, beautiful and learning rich experience.
