A unique all inclusive experience with insider access to the places we visit. Escape the busy city! A few miles outside Amsterdam lays the beautiful countryside of Holland. Visit the windmills, explore old towns, taste Gouda cheese and Dutch apple pie. This is an all inclusive small group tour. We travel with a luxurious full-size MPV to our destinations. We come at places where no tourbusses can come.

When the group is complete we drive north to the small historic fishermen village of Marken. Over there we have a short walk in the village where I explain some of the history. In the harbor of Marken we will stop at a local Dutch cafe for coffee, tea and Dutch apple pie. A great time to get to know each other a bit more.

From Marken we drive to the wooden shoe and cheese farm. At the farm we will get a private tour how cheese and wooden shoes are made. You can try to walk on wooden shoes and taste all the different kinds of cheeses.

After the experience we drive to the traditional sawmill where they still saw wood as in the old days. The windmill shows the big industrial revolution in the 16th century.

After that amazing experience we drive back to Amsterdam.

Most of the time we will driving through countryside roads to our destinations. All admision, coffee, tea and apple pie is included the price. Great experience to do during bad weather.

Leander was a great host! The tempo if this multi-faceted tour was perfect. We didn't feel rushed, and had time to even shop along the way! My son had a sprained ankle, so Leander respected the fact that he had to limp along and sometimes fell behind, but it all worked out with our group of 5 because Leander would pause to give us some historical information and he would catch up. Very respectful of everyone's needs and friendly with all the local craftsmen/crafts women, Leander is a wonderful host!

We’ve already been in Amsterdam for a few days now, and going on this trip to the countryside has been a super nice break from the city for us. Philip was very knowledgable, the destinations were all amazing, and so worth it! It was great to have someone who could drive you around and explain the history of everything you get to see. I would 100% recommend this experience! It definitely beats the tour bus experiences we’ve seen at some of the places we stopped at.

Oh My God !!! This is the best experience I have taken so far. Philip was so good with all his knowledge, interactions and warmth. He took us to places that we could have missed completely. Also, he was giving us details and stories at each corner and turn. It was so wonderful. He showed us best spots to take photographs. In all, given a chance, I'll like to do this tour again. Thanks a lot.
