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!

Highly recommended! Our guide (Jurjen - a super funny guy!) took his time and showed us places in The Hague that we would never have seen/found without him! A very impressive tour with a lot of street art and its history!

An impeccable tour, the cities we visited wonderful. I would only recommend more time in The Hague and Delf, less time in the miniature park. The park will be very nice but we would have preferred The Hague and Delf more.

Excellent tour. We covered much ground. Enjoyed it all! Very well planned tour. Guide and driver were very nice, knowledgeable and helpful.

Over all a great ride, the guides are amazing. How ever a three hour ride roof almost 5.
