Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: World Heritage Kinderdijk, Nederwaard 1, 2961 AS Kinderdijk The Netherlands

A visit to Kinderdijk gives you the extraordinary opportunity to visit a UNESCO World Heritage in Holland. In 1997, the windmill complex of Kinderdijk was added to the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage list because of its unique character. UNESCO considers the polder area with its dykes, mills and pumping stations to be proof of human inventiveness in reclaiming and protecting the land. This is worldwide recognition of the fact that this unique area must be preserved for the future.

At arrival in Kinderdijk your personal guide will take you to the visitors centre, situated in an old pumping station. Watch the film about the Kinderdijk area before walking through the area. If possible, you will visit a working windmill from the inside (depending on how busy it is).

The tour was just the right size. A total of 6 visitors in a Mercedes minivan. The sights were extremely worth seeing, especially through the very knowledgeable eyes and words of our guide. It was rainy and windy most of the day but that didn't bother or minimize our enjoyments of the Delft factory, the Kinderdijk windmills, the fabulous Maritshuis Museum in the Hague or the very intimate sightseeing tour of the Hague.

Bram was a great tour guide! Bonus stop at Delft to see how it was made. Saw the Girl with the Pearl Earring! Windmills were great!

Easily the best tour of our Amsterdam trip. Our guide Gon John was superb explaining all of the major sites along the way. Kinderdijk was wonderful. We had over 2 hours to explore which allowed us to see the Visitors Center movie, take a boat trip along the canal, and visit the inside of one of the windmills. We then proceeded to the Hague where we had a brief driving tour of the city and then stopped at the Mauritshuis Museum where we got to see the Girl With a Pearl Earring and other master works. We had time to lunch at the excellent museum cafe and enough time to walk the the grounds of the Dutch Parliament. We then drove to Delftse Pauw, one of the 2 remaining Delft factories located in Delft. After a brief tour we were able to shop in their extensive gift shop. It was then back to Amsterdam to complete our 9 hour day. We highly recommend this tour. There were only 3 couples on the Mercedes Van so it was nice a private.

Great small group tour to Kinderdijk and The Hague. Our group was very small, just the two of us, as we were the only ones signed up for that day. So we received a very personal and personalized tour for the small group price. Thank you. Greatly enjoyed the visit to Kinderdijk on a nice day for Amsterdam area to walk around the area. Also enjoyed our visit to The Hague.

Excellent tour if you want to see and photograph windmills. Kinderdijk is a wonderful world heritage sight- pay the extra 5 euros for the hop on/ hop off boat ride along the canal. Touring The Hague was interesting and visiting the Mauritshuis to see Vermeer's 'Girl with the Pearl Earring' was brilliant. Overall, a wonderful day tour out of Amsterdam. Bram was an excellent driver and commentator.

Amazing tour, our guide was very knowledgeable of the recent and not so recent history of Amsterdam, The Hague, Kinderdijk and Rottenburg. We enjoyed his friendly personality and considerate nature. We also made a short stop to view the making of Delft Blue pottery which was very enjoyable. Our tour of Mauritshuis to view the Girl with a Pearl Earring was a dream come true. I highly recommend this tour out into the beautiful countryside.

This excursion was well worth it. Our guide, Bram was excellent. Our group in May was only 5 people. The windmills were incredible. Don't miss the explanatory interactive film at the visitors center. Walk over to the windmills and walk as far as you can given the time allotment. The Mauritshuis was bigger than I thought and very beautiful, we also had access to a special exhibit. We had time to walk around the government center. I recommend bringing snacks for the trip. We would not have had enough time for a restaurant lunch at the square in The Hague. We were able to sit and enjoy our own food. Bram drove us to the Madurodam but no time to enter and then thru a beach town nearby Scheveningen and then drove us back to the Damrak
