A Day Outside of Amsterdam

Our guide, Wim, picked us up on time at our hotel and drove us to the castle, a restaurant for lunch, and the fortress. He was a friendly, informative host telling us about the areas we drove through. Wim was very open to how we wanted to spend the day and had great suggestions. His knowledge of the history, geography, and economics of the Netherlands made for an interesting day.
