What people are saying about North Brabant

Our guide Nigel in Nuenen did a fabulous job as our guide. I enjoyed the lovely walk in the beautiful countryside while learning about the interesting life and times of VanGogh. Our driver was helpful and friendly. The VanGogh museum was a spectacular end to the day where we saw a immense amount of beautiful paintings by VanGogh and other great artists related to him. VanGogh was a genius who was too beautiful for this world! I am so happy I was privileged to have this awesome experience with my son Christian.

A very nice boat tour, in beautiful nature, highly recommended if you have your vacation in this area. The boat tour was also given in German when booking, but unfortunately it didn't take place on the boat. We had very nice Dutch people at our table, who then translated everything for us. thanks for that

Surprising experience in the village of Van Gogh. A ride in the middle of its landscapes. The museum is also a wonderful experience, very kind staff, as well as those who rent the bicycle who always offer something to drink, special people! I would recommend it to all nature and Van Gogh lovers!

We expected to hear more about the animals living in the Biesbosch (maybe to see) Furthermore, a beautiful sailing route

Jacques at Nuenes and Bram the driver were excellent guides !!

Exceptionally good guides and we had a rollicking time.
